Rating: Sealife-Digital-Pro-Flash Super flash
Reviewer: Jolin W.,  - View all my reviews
Initially i had some problems but they turned out to be operator issues not the flash. adds so much to the pictures. well worth the money. only problems are i cant dive enough and i try to take so many PICs my dive buddy gets made because i wont keep up. Both nice problems to have.

Rating: Sealife-Digital-Pro-Flash Great Photos
Reviewer: Sara Cohen,  - View all my reviews
I used the camera alone on a trip to Curacao, and my pictures were OK. I decided to get a flash for the camera befor our trip to Cozumel, and I am really glad I did. The colors showed up better, and I could even take decent pictures in the swim through caves. This was a great purchase.

Rating: Sealife-Digital-Pro-Flash Pro Flash is a bright spot
Reviewer: William Manifold,
The Sealife Pro Flash is simple to use, highly adjustable, and reliable. It attaches easily to Sealife cameras and even works beautifully with my Canon Rebel Digital SLR. It has a dial, for quick and easy intensity adjustments, that is as easy to use underwater as on dry land. The flexible handle allows you to get just the right angle for the flash so you dont wash out the image. Since the Pro Flash is activated by the built in flash of your camera the system will work with any camera that has a built in flash making the Pro Flash highly versatile. I enjoy my Pro Flash and recommend it to anyone for use in or out of the water.

Rating: Sealife-Digital-Pro-Flash Good overall
Reviewer: Ramon H.,  - View all my reviews
The flash is well built and given the power, you have to get very close to subjects to get a decent picture. I would prefer the handle to be stiffer, since when you grab it the weight of the camera easily bends it. There is a learning curve to use it properly and effectively, but at the end it truly improves you pictures.

Rating: Sealife-Digital-Pro-Flash Flash came apart
Reviewer: Alex Urdangaray,  - View all my reviews
It appears to be a nice unit, but whoever assembled the product did not tighten the screw down that holds the top part of the flash to the flexible arm. Eventually the screw backed out completely and the top seperated. Lost one fo the connecting knuckles. Fortunately, the flash part was caught before falling into the sea. This was the first time use. Now I have to contact Sealife and hope they will warranty the part or buy it out right.

Rating: Sealife-Digital-Pro-Flash Needed help with Flash
Reviewer: Lester McDonald,
Called and asked about a simple flash. By simple I mean simple for me to understand.I have had underwater flashes that I had my dive shop get me. Mistake number one. When i called they said this Sealife Pro Flash will work on my Olympus case and camera. Had trouble at first. Called, they gave me number to call. Found out I was at Fault. Yes ladies I am a man saying "my fault." Did what the man said and can hardly believe how well it works now. I had my SLR on the wrong setting. Flash is perfect. I can even use out of water with my SLR.

Rating: Sealife-Digital-Pro-Flash Easy to Use
Reviewer: Jacqueline Lightner,
I am very excited about my Sealife Digital Pro Flash. I am a novice underwater photographer and found that I needed more flash for the limited vis in Northern CA waters. It was easy to set up with my Sealife DC1000 camera and I am impressed with the power it has to light up the subject. Great flash and I would highly recommend it!

Rating: Sealife-Digital-Pro-Flash SeaLife pro flash
Reviewer: Jeffrey G.,  - View all my reviews
I used this strobe with my SeaLife reefmaster mini for the first time on a live-aboard trip. With little experimentation with settings the pictures started coming out great. I would highly recommend this strobe. Most settings can be left at the default if used with a Sealife camera.

Rating: Sealife-Digital-Pro-Flash SeaLife Digital Pro Flash - Great Accessory and Easy to Use
Reviewer: Victor Alan Bargas,
Easy to use and makes a big difference when taking pictures. Compared pictures with and without external flash and there is a big difference. The colors are more vibrant. Wish I had the flash sooner than later. Great flash.

Rating: Sealife-Digital-Pro-Flash Digital Pro Flash Review
Reviewer: Jennie H.,  - View all my reviews
This flash works really well- adds a lot to the underwater pictures that you cant get from just the flash on the camera. The one problem Ive had is keeping the arm together (the piece between the base connected to the camera and the actual flash). I adjust the flash position to get the appropriate angle for whatever Im photographing. Invariably, by the end of the dive it has become loose again and I have to hold the flash. I found twist ties in multiple places down the arm solve this issue. There werent enough bands on that piece originally if youre going to be moving the arm while underwater. That being said I have recommended this flash to several of my diving photographer friends who like to take medium range shots adn dont want to break the bank to get them.

Rating: Sealife-Digital-Pro-Flash Sealife Digital Pro Flash
Reviewer: Charles K.,   
Was more than pleased with my new Sealife Digital Pro Flash. Of course it is a perfect match to my Sealife DC800 8.0 Megapixel Camera. Instructions were easy to follow and I was able to take underwater photos of a quality I have been unable to reach before. You can see some of my recent Key Largo underwater photos on my scuba.com diver website. ("Waxed dolphin or the Green Flash".

I really like the flash. It was easy to use and very uncomplicated. Im not very camera knowledgable so this was a snap for me. Just attach the camera, slide in the probe, and go !!! Quick and easy....

Rating: Sealife-Digital-Pro-Flash Livens up the colors
Reviewer: Lisa S.,
When diving in deeper water, or water with less visibility, having the Sealife Digital Pro Flash added the much needed light to produce true color in my photos, and prevented them from looking solely like various shades of blue. Setup is easy and the added weight (unavoidable) is not too much to make me notice. The arms flexibility also is helpful for getting the light to come from just the right angle. Highly recommend this for any point and shoot digital camera user!
