Featuring the latest high-tech LED lighting technology, the SeaLife SL980 light is an easier way to discover and capture colorful videos and close-up pictures.

The photo-video light includes a flexible arm for easy aiming and a universal base that quickly connects to your SeaLife camera or other underwater camera brands. One button operation and no connection cables. Release the light from its arm and aim into tight crevices or dark areas under the coral to uncover hidden sea creatures. The light can be easily mounted in combination with the SeaLife Digital Pro Flash to create the ideal underwater lighting set-up.

The permanent light makes close-up colors come alive with its wide-angle beam that evenly illuminates the subject without hot spots or overpowering.
