Kraken Hydra 2500 Lumen Macro Light/Strobe. Wide, Red and UV Video Light
The Kraken Hydra 2500 Macro Edition light is the perfect all-in-one solution for divers wanting to use a smaller camera rig. The Kraken 2500 strobes very brightly to 4000 lumens when you shoot your camera! It is synced to your camera via a fiber optic cable to fire in a burst mode. You can use a constant 2500 lumens, with a burst to 4000 lumens. This output is enough light for most macro photo situations.
This light has flood, red, and blue beam modes. You can combine the red, and the blue beams for a sort of pinkish purple. This can be used for artistic back, or side lighting. The modes are controlled by an easy-to-use two button operation with one button for mode and another for adjustable output. Holding down one button puts it in/out of burst "strobe" mode.
It is also remote control ready, all you have to do is purchase the Kraken remote and you can control up to two lights without having to remove your hand from your tray!
There will soon be an optional condensing lens you can screw on to the light to condense the beam way down to around 20 degrees.
Built to the usual high-quality Kraken standards, the head water resistant. If you have an accident and flood the light, the head will remain ok. You'll probably have to replace the battery but that is much less expensive than replacing the light. This gives you the benefit of being able to easily switch batteries between dives, but also not having to worry about a flood!
