Ikelite Announces new DS Strobes

Ikelite has announced new versions of their DS strobes. The DS230 offers 213Ws of power and has an integrated 2500 lumen video light. Its video light is shared with the DS162, which has 160Ws of power while the DS160 II has the same strobe output, without the video light. Lastly, the DS51 II has 50 Ws of output. All the new strobes feature improved recycling times, have redesigned controls, and triggering is via either the Ikelite ICS-5 electrical plug or an optional fiber optic converter.

Battery packs are backward compatible with previous models.

The DS230 and DS 162 will both ship in February 2022, with prices to be confirmed. The DS160 II and DS51 II will ship in late December 2021, priced at $995 and $495 respectively.
