Litepanels SeaSun MicroPro Underwater Housing
The Litepanels SeaSun MicroPro Underwater Housing allows you to use your Litepanels MicroPro LED light underwater. Along with Los Angeles based underwater motion picture specialist Hydro Flex, Inc., Litepanels has developed this underwater lighting fixture.
The daylight balanced MicroPro LED light is perfect for bringing back the natural colors that get filtered out when filming underwater. The SeaSun MicroPro lighting fixture has been designed to be as close to neutrally buoyant as possible, allowing for easy movement to follow the action. It is designed to be slightly small in size and easily handheld underwater.
Litepanels LED MicroPro light requires less that 1/10th the amount of power of traditional underwater lighting sources, which allows batteries used to power the lights to last 10-times longer than old-style underwater fixtures. For example, using Energizer E2 Lithium Ion AA batteries, the MicroPro can run over 5 hours.
Because LEDs emit almost no heat, the Litepanels SeaSuns can be removed from the water with the light still turned on. Litepanels SeaSun fixtures are easily gelled to modify color temperature of the light provided. Pre-cut pieces of gel material can be carried and applied to the underwater fixture during the dive.
The Litepanels MicroPro housing comes equipped with an integrated camera shoe featuring an adjustable tilt mechanism. To allow for multiple configurations, it may also be mounted on the optional base plate for off-camera usage, or on an extension arm. This makes the light perfect for being mounted on a camera housing or to be deployed off to the side.
The lighting housing is portable and is easily handheld underwater
No cables are needed to the surface
Modular for various underwater lighting combinations
Buoyancy is slightly negative
Depth rated to over 30'

SeaPar Underwater 1200W HMI
The original underwater HMI's designed by Richard Mula and Pete Romano for the movie The Abyss, the SeaPar 1200W HMI has been extensively used in the motion picture and commercial industries on countless projects worldwide. This light made such a profound impact on the industry that in 1991, the lamp received a Technical Achievement Award from The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
The SeaPar lighting system passed NASA's Hazard Risk Assessment program for filming Michael Bay's feature film "Armageddon", and to date is the only underwater lighting to be allowed in NASA's "Neutral Buoyancy Lab" (NBL) in Houston, Texas. The lights have since returned to the NBL for a National Geographic shoot and Clint Eastwood's feature film "Space Cowboys".
For optimum safety, the SeaPar lamps and cables have been upgraded to feature our custom underwater mateable connectors incorporating an extended ground pin for "Mate First/Break Last" lamp grounding.

INON Z-240 Underwater Strobe Light
High power with Guide Number 24, wide 100 degrees circular beam angle light distribution even without a diffuser
INON unique T-shape Twin Flash constructionPAT and optimally designed reflecting mirror/prism enable effective light distribution and produce powerful guide number 24 (*1) at wide circular 100 beam coverage without a diffuser from compact body (outer diameter:99mm x depth: 100mm x height: 122mm) (*2) run by only 4 x AA batteries. Even for shooting wide subject, the Z-240 delivers strong strobe light to an entire area without using a diffuser which suppresses strobe power. Packaged -0.5 White Diffuser 2 (TTL/Manual) increases bean angle to 110 degree (guide number 21). With the white diffuser, color temperature of the Z-240 decreases at 100K (Kelvin) only to depict underwater scenery in same color regardless of using the diffuser or not.

EV. Controller to adjust exposure of S-TTL Auto
It is simple to fine-tune flash power in S-TTL Auto by dialing the EV Control Switch on the back control panel. Adjustable range is 3 steps to increase and 6 steps to decrease, to suit to personal preference or different exposure control characteristics among camera models.
Next generation wireless TTL
The Z-240 Type 4 successfully amplifies receiving optical signal from the slave sensor 20 times more comparing to previous Z-240 Type 3 to provide wireless S-TTL Auto mode using a mirror instead of an optical cable. Attaching optional Wireless Connection Kit on the Z-240 Type 4 and combined with a housing via Shoe Base Set or Grip Base D4 Set creates a handy S-TTL Auto shooting set.
13 step Manual / 24 step External Auto
The Z-240 supports professional needs for sophisticated and precise lighting by its 13 step Manual mode with 1/2EV. increments and by semi-automatic 24 step External Auto mode with 1/4EV. increments which determines strobe output based on onboard sensor. INON unique Advanced Cancel Circuit benefits you with faster recycle time and more images per battery set to eliminate drawbacks when using with a pre-flash type digital camera where the built-in flash always burst full dump.
High-intensity 180 lumen power LED
Focus Light with shutter linked auto OFF function
Multifunctional Focus LightUS.PAT for supporting focusing as well as for using as an indicator of strobe charge status since it turns on in synch with strobe's ready LED lamp. The Z-240 Type 4 uses high-intensity 180 lumen power LED as Focus Light which is also usable as an independent diving light producing 180 lumen/20 coverage. The Focus Light automatically turns OFF in synch with shutter release where it quenches emitting light at the time of pre-flash under Optical D Cable Connection with a pre-flash type digital camera, so it is never recorded in an image (*5).
(*5)Focus Light may be recorded on an image depending on camera system, connection method and shooting condition.
Integral pre-flash mode detecting function
Fully compatible with a camera like Nikon digital SLR cameras D700/D300/D200/D90/D80 which alter number of pre-flash between once or twice depending on shooting condition making total flashes twice to three times. The Z-240 automatically identifies number of pre-flash to activate adequate program to support proper functioning of External Auto, Manual as well as precise S-TTL Auto mode.
Manual + TTL Auto mode for film cameras
Newly introduced flash mode for hard wired film camera to pre-set maximum flash power in TTL Auto exposure to compensate the weakness of the TTL Auto mode. Conventional TTL Auto may not get along with a particular situation like shooting a swimming fish without colorful back ground where TTL Auto could deliver full damp resulting from TTL error. The Manual + TTL Auto mode can avoid this problem by manually setting necessary flash output for a subject to stop firing at pre-set flash amount in case of TTL error happens and benefit you to drastically reduce overexposed images.
