Power The camera's built-in flash is only about one-third the power of the AF35; its effective range is about 18 inches (0.5m).

The Underwater Photographers Most Important Accessory As you descend underwater there is less available light to illuminate subjects and you lose color.

Versatility The AF35 fits most compact and ULTRA compact housings manufactured by Ikelite, Canon, Olympus and Sony. If you purchase a new point and shoot camera and housing most likely the AF35 will work with the new camera and housing. Dual AF35 flashes can easily be configured to illuminate the wider coverage when using wide-angle lenses. .
