- Great for compact camera shooters

Backscatter Optical Snoot OS-1
The Backscatter Optical Snoot OS-1 combines with the Backscatter Mini Flash 1 Underwater Strobe MF-1 to provide outstanding macro results. Work amazing well with compact cameras, like the Olympus TG-6.
Using a strobe with a snoot was once really difficult. Aiming a snoot took lots of practice. The Backscatter Mini Flash and Optical Snoot was designed together with the purpose of making shooting with a snoot as easy as possible. With bright LED lights that project the same beam pattern as the flash through the snoot, you can easily see the exact placement of the snoot beam on your subject when framing a shot and know you are hitting your target. Have a critter that doesn't like a constant light on all the time? Use our short duration modelling flash to check your snoot placement without continuously disturbing a light-sensitive critter.
The Backscatter Optical Snoot OS-1 is easy to mount, with a simple click on/click off. The Optical Snoot OS-1 is small enough to keep in a pocket, allowing for a quick and easy switch from wide to macro.
Sea&Sea Fiber-Optic Cable II M/2 Connectors - Medium 453mm
The coiled 453 mm (17.8 inch) Medium length Fiber-Optic Cable II from Sea & Sea (S&S-50128) are for use with strobe lights in underwater photography. They are each equipped with two closed 90° Sea & Sea fittings on the ends and are made with the best quality Fiber-Optic Cable composed of 613 fibres (cores). Even when the cable is bent, attenuation of light is minimal. Therefore, the light signal will be transmitted to a strobe without loss. Compared with single fibre cables, the Fiber-Optic Cable II is more resistant to distortion, bending and physical impact.
Backscatter Double Handle GoPro and Compact Camera Tray
The Backscatter Double Handle GoPro and Compact Camera Tray has two custom aluminium handles which give you comfortable foam grips to help stabilise your shots. Quarter-twenty mounting receptacles on the tops of the handles are ready to accommodate most Flex Arm and Ball Mount systems. Just add your choice of arms and adaptors for a perfect system.
