Ikelite DS51 II 50Ws TTL Strobe
Update From Previous Version:
- Clear view of battery compartment seal
- Lighter 1lb less
- TTL and remote slave options
The Ikelite DS-51 II 50Ws TTL Strobe is the perfect strobe when traveling, it is small and compact yet powerful enough to capture stunning photos. It only weighs 443g and since its small, it would be easier to position your strobe to the perfect angle.
The strobe power/exposure mode switch is prominent on the rear of the strobe with a bright white detail makes it easy to see where it's pointing.
For connectivity, the DS-51 II is very flexible, you can use electronic sync cord or fiber optic cable (with Ikelite Fiber Optic Converter). Remote triggering is also supported.
