SeaLife Unveils Sea Dragon 3000SF Pro Dual Beam Photo-Video Light
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, October 15, 2021 @ 05:00 AM (EST)

SeaLife has announced the latest addition to its Sea Dragon range of photo/video lights: the 3000SF Pro Dual Beam. The light complements the 3000F Auto, released a few years ago: As well as offering the same 3,000-lumen, 120° flood beam (90° underwater), the 3000SF adds a 1,500-lumen spot beam with a 15° beam angle (11° underwater) for creative snoot-type lighting effects. Finally, two additional LEDs provide a 180-lumen red light with a beam angle of 88° (66° underwater).

As with the 3000F, the flood beam of the new model is produced by a COB LED array with a high color rendering index (CRI) of 90—meaning the light quality is very similar to that of natural sunlight. The red LEDs assist your camera’s autofocus when shooting with strobes, allow you to see your gauges and surroundings, and also won’t scare off skittish fish. One-button control allows you to cycle through modes easily: from flood to spot (each at full power and half power) to red light mode. The fully charged lithium-ion rechargeable battery powers the 3,000-lumen light at full power for a whole hour.

Shipping in November, the Sea Dragon 3000SF Pro Dual Beam retails for $500 and includes SeaLife’s Flex-Connect single tray and grip, plus accessories.

SeaLife Introduces Sea Dragon 3000SF Pro Dual Beam Photo-Video Light

MOORESTOWN, NJ - SeaLife has introduced their new compact Sea Dragon 3000SF Pro Dual Beam Photo-Video light. The larger COB LED delivers 3000 lumens in an even 120° wide beam. The light offers an impressive 90 CRI (color rendering index) with a proprietary COB LED array that replicates natural sunlight (A CRI of 100 would be just like natural sunlight). With a simple one-button push, the underwater photographer can switch from the wide 120° beam to a narrow 1500 lumen 15° spot beam. For imaging, the spot beam offers many creative opportunities such as to create a narrowly focused snoot or stage spotlight effect.

The narrow beam feature has a long effective range making it useful to see in dark areas and discover hiding fish. The Sea Dragon Pro Dual Beam also offers two 180 lumen 88° red LEDs. Red light won’t affect your own eyes’ night vision or scare-off light-sensitive sea creatures, a simple push on the feature button shifts the light from red to the wide beam at 3000 lumens. The diver is ready in an instant to capture still or video images.

The feature control button easily switches to the most popular functions:

3000 (Lumen) Flood > 1500 Flood > 750 Flood > 1500 Spot > 750 Spot > 180 RED Flood > Repeat

The Sea Dragon Pro Dual Beam light includes a Flex-Connect® Single camera tray, Flex-Connect® Grip, Sea Dragon EVA Travel case, adapter for GoPro® cameras, Li-ion battery, AC Charger, and international plug adapters.

Part of the Sea Dragon’s impressive performance is its powerful 25Wh 3400mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery pack, that runs the light for 60 minutes at full (3000 lumen) power.

The Sea Dragon 3000SF Pro Dual Beam Light will be available in early November 2021.
