Fantasea Line Announce Winner Of "Name the New Flash" Competition
By Matt J. Weiss, October 7, 2008 @ 02:00 AM (EST)

In August, DivePhotoGuide announced that our friends at Fantasea would be releasing a new strobe and would be a holding a contest to the naming rights of the new product.  Fantasea is now happy to announce the winner. I hope to one day try the strobe myself, as I was personally a big fan of the Nano, and it appears as if this is an upgrade. Without further ado here is the press release-


Fantasea Line is delighted to announce the winner of their recent competition to name their new manual slave flash that will be released some time in November.

Fantasea was amazed by the high level of imaginative names that were given, but after deliberation we came to the conclusion that the clear winner is Abdulbadie A. Al-Yafi, a Scuba Diving and Underwater Photography enthusiast from Saudi Arabia.

Mr. Al Yafi suggested that we name the new flash the Fantasea Remora. He explained that the focus light rides on the strobe like a remora fish attaches itself to a shark or to a manta ray. Since the remora and the shark depend on each other, just like the focus light works with the strobe, this makes it an appropriate name.

Fantasea particularly liked the idea of giving their new flash, which is mainly used for marine photography, the name of a marine animal and Mr. Al Yafi, wins himself a Fantasea Remora Flash, which is adjustable and has a more powerful output, a better diffuser and a wider angle than the Fantasea Nano Flash.

In recognition of the high level of entries, and to thank participants for taking part in the competition, Fantasea are offering all participants a special discount when purchasing the Fantasea Remora once it is launched in November.
