Strobe Burst Mode - 4500 Lumens
NEW! RGB Mode - 9 different color options for creative lighting!!
The updated Hydra 3500S+ WRSU RGB now features an incredibly bright 4500 Lumen Strobe Burst Mode as well as an RGB mode with 9 different color options for creative lighting. When connected to your housing with a fiber optic cable the light will burst in time with your photo in order to offer a strobe like flash to help better illuminate a still photo.
The Hydra 3500S+ is a high powered underwater video light from Kraken Sports. The light includes a flood, spot, red and UV beam, in addition to the strobe burst making it a truly a universal light. An optional remote control allows for easy adjustments directly from the handle of your tray.
The Kraken 3500S+ is a power regulated video light, which means the light intensity does not decrease during the dive like many "budget" video lights do. The Kraken Video Lights offer high performance at a lower cost, making them an ideal option for all levels of videographers.
The light head of the Kraken Hydra 3500S+ is water resistant, which protects the expensive light elements in case of a flood. While you'll likely have to replace the battery, the light head will still be functional.
My fiancee and I have two of these lights, and they are awesome. The primary use is for video with a GoPro, and the 3500 lumens are more than enough for taking really nice and colourful footage. I also love using one of these lights as my focus light for my OM-D E-M1 rig with YS-D1 strobes. I used to use a sola light for focus, but this light has some major advantages: way more power (so I can shoot really colourful macro video with my camera if I want), a spot mode (which is way better for night dives and for spotting critters), more powerful red light (making focus easier) and a blue setting for creative photo lighting options. The light also has a burst mode for photos, but I have not tried that out since I use strobes. One thing I intend to use this a lot for is for backlighting subjects. Spot lighting is much better for backlighting than flood lighting, so that is a major advantage of this light. I expect it will get a lot of use being taken off my housing and put behind fun subjects like leaf scorpionfish and glass shrimp!
One thing to keep in mind is that if you are using two of these lights, they are a bit heavy underwater. On our GoPro rig we use a couple of floats to offset some of the negative buoyancy. Part of the reason they are heavy is that they are built very solidly, which is not a bad thing. They also have a nice double o-ring seal to prevent flooding. Overall an excellent light which we would highly recommend, both for video and photo use!
