Guide Number 20.
Precisely designed front dome lens (*1) together with INON’s unique "T-shape twin flash" widens powerful strobe light without sacrifice any power to accomplish UNDERWATER coverage circular 110 degree.

Not as like a conventional translucent diffuser which can widen coverage while it has to sacrifice power and store heat inside, this specially designed dome lens diffuse light thanks to reflection ratio of air, acrylic and water to attain UNDERWATER coverage 110 degree with all powerful output coming through. Comparing to the previous "D-2000" strobe, both of power and underwater coverage has been improved.

D-200 front dome lens
Furthermore, the D-200 has overcame drawback of high-power strobe which has long flash duration and reaches to FULL power in significantly short period of time after start flashing.
Together with flashing system in sync with pre-flash and main flash of camera’s built-in flash, the D-200 can deliver full power even at 1/1000 high shutter speed setting without cutting power

Strobe Light Shade is removable.


The shade goes to any position.


● Radiation system to release generated heat inside
The D-200 strobe is equipped with circular metal heatsink carrying high thermal conductivity around light emitting area. The heatsink can release heat generated inside of the strobe by each shot effectively to underwater. Improved heat tolerance has resolved heat problem typically accompanied with powerful strobe. No stress with sudden stop of flashing to cool down.


● 220 lumen, Shutter-linked AUTO OFF Focus Light
The built-in "Shutter-linked Auto-Off Focus Light" delivers 220lm brightness to support when focusing a subject and cease in synch with the shutter release and automatically turns ON again.
