Ikelite officially announced a new strobe this week -- the Ikelite SubStrobe DS-160. This will replace the popular SubStrobe DS-125. The DS-160 has been reinvented to include exciting new features such as:
- 160 watt-sec. power
- Built-in 5-watt LED modeling light
- TTL, Full, plus 9 fractional powers
- 1.5 second recycle time
- 225 full power flashes per charge
In addition to full compatibility with all current Ikelite digital and film TTL systems, Ikelite has added extra creative control with 9 fractional power settings in half-stop increments. A super-bright LED modeling / focus light exhibits negligible drain on the battery pack and turns off automatically while the strobe fires. A remarkable 160 watt-seconds of power is delivered in a blazing fast recycle time of 1.5 sec from full discharge--and even faster in TTL and fractional power settings.
The SubStrobe DS-160 is now available for pre-order, with shipments in limited quantities by late July. The SubStrobe DS-160 uses the same battery pack, charger, sync connection, and mounting system as the current SubStrobe DS-125. Photos and full specifications will be posted on the Ikelite website later this month.
New product numbers are as follows:
#4060 SubStrobe DS-160 includes NiMH battery pack, diffuser, and standard mount with through-bolt
#3944.90 Substrobe DS-160 Package with Sync Cord includes DS-160, diffuser, #4086.61 arm, charger and #4103.51 sync cord
#3944.91 Substrobe DS-160 Package with EV Controller includes DS-160, diffuser, #4086.61 arm, charger and EV manual controller
The SubStrobe DS-125 will continue to be available while supplies last. It is NOT possible to upgrade an existing SubStrobe DS-125 to SubStrobe DS-160 specifications. No exchanges will be offered.
