The Epoque ES-150DS Alfa is a high-performance strobe that is designed to be compatible with most cameras. The automatic pre-flash function will adjust for most digital or film cameras.
The strobe has a variable power output for precision manual manipulation of light. For most point & shoot digital cameras the built-in slave or a fiber optic cable will fire the strobe when the camera's on-board flash fires. For more advanced cameras with a hot shoe the strobe will fire with a 5 pin Nikonos sync cord.
Strobes are extremely important for your underwater imaging system. The ocean is one big, blue filter. As you descend, the reds and oranges quickly become muted shades of blue and gray. Firing a color corrected strobe light on your subject will bring back your subject's natural color. With a recycle time of approximately four seconds, a 80 x 100° beam angle and a guide number that varies from 3 to 15, this strobe will help you to produce stunning underwater photographs.

The AF35's built-in sensor transmits data from the camera's flash to the AF35 strobe, varying the strobe's power automatically to replicate TTL exposure. The AF35 sensor is positioned to provide the most reliable strobe triggering possible without exposed cables which require maintenance and can tangle or break.
Two large, easy to read dials provide all of the settings necessary for control of the flash system. The AF35 strobe rear dial features OFF, Auto (TTL) plus six Manual Power settings. The AF35 sensor rear dial provides simple plus/minus EV exposure compensation in the Auto (TTL) mode. The system's comfortable rubberized grip and neutral buoyancy make it a pleasurable addition to any housing. A flexible arm system allows quick repositioning of the strobe angle and adds no weight to the system.
A simple battery door is easy to remove and replace and provides a clear view of the o-ring seal. The strobe's battery compartment is independently sealed from the electronics preventing further damage in the event of a flood.
This kit includes everything you need to add a strobe to almost any Ikelite compact digital housing, plus other housings featuring 1/4-20 mounting like Canon, Olympus, Sony and more!
