Gear List

Assorted gear and equipment that I use and/or recommend for underwater photography. Some links may pay me a small fee when you buy, but it won’t increase the cost you pay.

Ikelite 15 Foot Extension Cord

Cable to connect lights or radio trigger housing to camera housing.

Will need a connection cable depending on bulkhead style.

Ikelite TTL Single Sync Cord – Nikonos to Ikelite DS Strobe

Connects extension cable to Nikonos bulkhead.

Waterproof Radio Trigger Housing

Housing to connect camera to radio trigger.

Available from Brett, email to order.

Flashpoint XPLOR 600PRO HSS Battery-Powered Monolight

Powerful above water strobe with radio trigger.

Manfrotto 5001B 74-Inch Nano Stand

Perfect for holding underwater strobes either on the floor of the pool, or upside down and hanging from the pool edge.

Works best with Bowens Mount Holder.

Ikelite TTL Single Sync Cord – Ikelite to Ikelite DS Strobe

Connects extension cable to Ikelite bulkhead.

Sea & Sea YS-D3 Lightning Strobe

Underwater strobe for lighting below the surface.

36 Inches Octagon Quick Collapsible Softbox

A good modifier to give your above or underwater lights a softer look.

Anglerfish Remote Trigger V 3.0

Optical trigger for underwater strobes.

Godox S2 Bracket S-Type Bowens Mount Holder

Bowens S-Type Mount is great for holding a smaller underwater strobe (Sea & Sea Ys-D1&2) whilst allowing for modifiers such as softboxes or barn doors to be attached.

May need modification for some flash models.
