A complete Underwater Lighting System for UW photography and videography. The I-Divesite SS-2 combines a powerful strobe with a user upgradeable video light head!
The name Symbiosis -- interaction between two different organisms living in close physical association, typically to the advantage of both. Yes you are right, video and strobe in one body, and they can work separately or together. And most importantly as an always up-to-date video light, because the LED head is user upgradable and can also be used as a stand alone video light
The SS-2 features an LED screen and a mode and power dial. Intensity of the light or strobe can be individually adjusted. The light automatically turns off and then back on during strobe exposure. Red and white modes are available and adjustable. The LED screen orients itself if the strobe is flipped over, so you can always read it!
The SS-2 features an auto mode that allows it to "learn" exposure with a few test shots. While not TTL, it does allow for faster shooting. As well, manual control is very easy and precisely adjustable.
Symbosis SS-2 is neutral in the water and easy to dive. Both YS and ball mounts are provided. The light battery unscrews and can then be taken to the charger - without disassembling the SS-2 from your rig.
The LED technology is developing quickly recent years, the max intensity (lumens) and efficiency (lumen/W) of LED can be double after 1 year. The life cycle for all-in-one integrated products will be short. Therefore the LED Light head must be designed as an individual module and be changeable by the user so they can upgrade anytime when there are new LED Light Heads available. Divers can always maintain the setup in top of the range with limited re-investment in the equipment.
Other than the intensity of the LED itself, upgrades may also be for different usage of the LED lights. For example, normal focusing light (1000 lumens), UV light (6-18W), snoot Flexible video light (5-8 degrees narrow beam), high-power wide angle video light (up to 4000 lumens) and normal macro video light (2000 lumens) all with different design so there will be many different kinds of lights to fit different conditions.
Photographers can built on demand (purchase difference kinds of module according to their needs) before going into the water will be a definitely advantage. So all-in-one, with “BOD” build on-demand feature can fit most of the photographers’ needs.
