Light is one of the most important necessities in underwater photography, but unfortunately always rare because the water absorbs natural light already at shallow depths and the colors fade very quickly. The good news: With good flashes and flash strobe systems, you can easily solve the problem!

It is advisable to use external light sources, because not only are the pictures getting darker the deeper you dive but the colors will fade very quickly. By using flashes, poor lighting conditions can be brightened, which also helps with the colors. Also, camera flashes can be used as an artistic tool and they are particularly helpful when taking photos underwater because they help to produce sharper images. Lamps, on the other hand, are especially important for filming underwater.

In our shop, you will find a large selection of underwater flashes, for example from Inon, i-Divesite, Sea & Sea, or Backscatter as well as snoot systems and of course accessories such as flash cables and flash triggers.
