Backscatter Publishes Results from Field Test of New Mini Flash and Optical Snoot
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, December 13, 2019 @ 09:00 AM (EST)

If you saw the announcement of Backscatter’s Mini Flash and have been wondering what all this “snooting” business is about, you might want to check out the results the Backscatter team achieved on a recent field test of the new strobe in the waters off Komodo Island. Taking on a wide range of bucket-list critters, the impressive gallery of images really shows off what the Mini Flash and Optical Snoot combo can do.

Look out for DPG’s review of the Mini Flash and Optical Snoot early next year after we put these diminutive strobes to the test over the holidays.
