Radiant 3000F Video Light
Cat. No. 6052

The Radiant 3000F Video Light is a durable and powerful video light, designed to significantly enhance color and light in underwater videos and still images. It offers a variety of advanced features for creative photographers. 

Featuring an ergonomic design and a built-in YS connector, the Radiant 3000F Video Light can be comfortably integrated into any underwater photo system, such as with action cams, amphibious cameras, compact digital housings and more. 

The Radiant 3000F offers a variety of operation modes, which make the light suitable to light a wide range of classic and creative compositions. Operation modes include flood light (100 degrees), spot light (15 degrees), red light, Ultra Violet (UV) & Blue light and two flashing modes (constant and SOS) that can serve for signaling / SOS purposes. 

The Radiant 3000F makes use of 3 powerful LEDs for red light, 4 LEDs for UV & blue light, one X-PL LED for spot light and a new Cob (chip-on-board) LED array for flood light, which provides an impressively bright, wide and even beam. Color temperature of the beam is warm and assists with producing vivid and colorful videos and still images without having to use any color correction filters. 

A battery power indicator light enables easy monitoring of the battery power. In the flashing modes the light can provide up to 8 hours of burn time (assuming the batteries are fully charged). 

A user-friendly interface, based on two easily accessible buttons, allows for easy operation of the light. The Mode button allows switching between the various modes of light. The Intensity button allows adjusting power output in most light modes according to various compositions and diving conditions, as well as for extending the burn time of the light (the batteries will provide power for a considerably longer time when the light is set at lower intensity settings). 

Finally, a “memory” function will return the light to the same setting as previously used before the light was last turned off. 

Depth rated to 100 meters/330 feet, the Radiant 3000F Video Light fulfills the needs of both recreational and technical divers.

FA-1 LED Strobe Trigger

Cat. No. 6551

The FA-1 LED Strobe Trigger triggers underwater strobes and flashes to fire in sync with the camera using fiber optic cables. 

Using the LED Strobe Trigger eliminates the need for the camera built-in flash to fire, thereby extending camera battery life and allowing for longer shooting sessions. Eliminating the camera built-in flash also keeps the camera from heating up, resulting with less condensation in humid conditions. The LED Strobe Trigger’s super quick recycle time allows for rapid shooting and triggering of the strobes without having to wait for the camera built-in flash to charge. 

 The FA-1 LED Strobe Trigger can be connected to any camera featuring a hot-shoe connection. It can be installed inside any camera housing offering sufficient space, anywhere inside the housing, for the main unit to be placed. 

The FA-1 LED Strobe Trigger is capable of triggering most underwater strobes available in the market. Note that when using the LED Strobe Trigger, strobe output is controlled manually only.

Specifications

LED type: Ultra bright white LED 

LED ports: 2 

Voltage: 3.7 V 

Power consumption: 5 milliwatt 

Battery: 110mAh Lithium Polymer battery 

Charging time: 1.5 hours 

Flash capacity: 10,000 (when fully charged) 

 Battery life: Up to 72 hours (when fully charged)

Auto power-off time: 3 hours 

Dimensions: 40.5 x 45 x 13 mm / 1.6 x 1.77 x 0.51 inch 

Weight: 16.8 g / 0.51 oz 

Included in package: LED Strobe Trigger main unit, LED cable, Hot-shoe cable, Spongy LED trigger ports, Velcro sticker, Rubber band and USB cable

FA-2 LED Strobe Trigger

 

Cat. No. 6552

The FA-2 LED Strobe Trigger triggers underwater strobes and flashes to fire in sync with the camera using fiber optic cables. 

Using the LED Strobe Trigger eliminates the need for the camera built-in flash to fire, thereby extending camera battery life and allowing for longer shooting sessions. Eliminating the camera built-in flash also keeps the camera from heating up, resulting with less condensation in humid conditions. The LED Strobe Trigger’s super quick recycle time allows for rapid shooting and triggering of the strobes without having to wait for the camera built-in flash to charge. 

 The FA-2 LED Strobe Trigger can be connected to any camera featuring a hot-shoe connection. It was designed to be installed inside Fantasea housings, but can also be installed inside other housings featuring sufficient space above the camera hot-shoe. 

The FA-2 LED Strobe Trigger is capable of triggering most underwater strobes available in the market. Note that when using the LED Strobe Trigger, strobe output is controlled manually only.

Fiber Optic Cable A1

 

Cat. No. 6301

The Fiber Optic Cable A1 connects between the camera housing and a single slave strobe, thus allowing triggering the strobe in sync with the camera. 

The Fiber Optic Cable A1 is 45.3 cm / 17.8 inch long.

Using the plugs included, one end of the cable attaches to the fiber optic cable port on the camera housing, right against the camera built-in flash or LED Strobe Trigger (if using one), and the other end attaches to the strobe slave sensor. The light emitted by the camera built-in flash or LED Strobe Trigger is transmitted through the fiber optic cable to the strobe slave sensor, thus triggering it to fire in sync with the camera.

The Fiber Optic Cable A1 features a plug on its end which is compatible with Fantasea housings and other housings featuring a similar design of fiber optic cable ports. This plug is also compatible with many popular strobes. In a case of connecting the fiber optic cable to a housing or strobe featuring a different fiber optic cable port design, a compatible adaptor (separately acquired) can be mounted on or instead of the existing plug.

Fiber Optic Cable B2
Cat. No. 6302

The Fiber Optic Cable B2 is a dual fiber optic cable which connects between the camera housing and two slave strobes, thus allowing triggering the strobes in sync with the camera. 

The Fiber Optic Cable B2 features cables which are 45.3 cm / 17.8 inch long.

Using the plugs included, one end of the dual cable attaches to the fiber optic cable port on the camera housing, right against the camera built-in flash or LED Strobe Trigger (if using one), and the other two ends attach to the strobes slave sensors. The light emitted by the camera built-in flash or LED Strobe Trigger is transmitted through the fiber optic cables to the strobes slave sensors, thus triggering them to fire in sync with the camera.

The Fiber Optic Cable B2 features a plug on each of its ends which is compatible with Fantasea housings and other housings featuring a similar design of fiber optic cable ports. This plug is also compatible with many popular strobes. In a case of connecting the fiber optic cable to a housing or strobe featuring a different fiber optic cable port design, a compatible adaptor (separately acquired) can be mounted on or instead of the existing plug.
