Kongsberg Simrad OE11-242 Underwater Strobe / Flashgun 1000M – Available for rental, hire and ex-rental purchase from Ashtead Technology.

The OE11-242 has been designed specifically for use with the OE14-208 Digital Stills Camera. When under control of the oe14-208 the variable power feature can be used allowing the exposure to be increased or decreased by a 1/3 of a stop up to a maximum of +2 stops and a minimum of -2 stops.

In Auto Mode the oe11-242 will fire if ambient illumination is not sufficient. The flash can be turned off if the use of external lighting together with the flash would result in an unnatural exposure. Fill Flash can be activated to fire even when external lighting is sufficient.

Slow Synchronisation can be activated thereby allowing greater background detail to be captured.

The flashgun head zooms in sympathy with the oe14-208 lens permitting a wider camera to subject range.

The oe11-242 can be used in manual mode with any other camera when the flash will fire at full power unless the camera has a compatible TTL output.
