The DS161 combines power with wide angle coverage. The quality of light is exceptional due to a curcular flashtube and custom coated reflector designed specifically to deliver the softest, most even coverage possible. The strobes beam has been designed to produce soft and wide spread through its reflector design, and is capable of providing you the coverage and power you want and avoiding the one f/stop loss caused by adding a diffuser.
The new DS161 utilizes its custom rechargeable cells to provide consistent high frame firing rate. It uses premium industrial grade NiMH which performs better. The battery attaches quickly and easily with its unique toggle lock design plus you don't need to lubricate the o-ring, less work when setting up your rig. The strobe features a backwards compatibility which means you can still use your old DS160/DS161 battery packs.
The strobe features an integrated video light with a whopping 2500 lumens, It allows you to easily and switch between shooting photos to video. It can also be used as a focus light and has an awesome feature which automatically turns off every time you take a photo then back on again. In addition, the power can also be controlled using 3 settings (low, medium and high) and has an SOS mode as well.
The NiMH batteries are work horses, and a great choice for high powered rechargeable devices due to their performance and reliability at a more affordable price point than lithium ion. This high capacity battery pack provides professional quality power and speed flash after flash, well beyond the capabilities of even the best AA-cell batteries.
Ikelite has also improved the recycle time of the DS161 - less than 1 second from full discharge! You'll get very close to instantaneous recycle time
