Manta's release has been postponed. Our current release estimate is late Summer 2014. More information will be posted as soon as it becomes available.

The essence of form + function. Manta is first underwater strobe to include proprietary Pre-Flash Recognition Technology, giving the strobe a unique ability to automatically adjust to almost any camera's pre-flash sequence or lack of pre-flash. There's no switch, magnet, or setting. The Manta can set and reset itself on-the-fly, even if you switch from a pre-flash to a non-preflash mode in-between shots underwater.

TTL from the leaders in underwater TTL. We designed the Manta to automatically adjust its flash output based on the output of your camera's flash. EV +/- compensation while in TTL mode and a range of manual power settings are available with a simple sweep of the large, rear dial. Easy to see, even without glasses.

The on/off switch glows green in TTL modes, red in manual modes, for a quick visual mode indicator and doubles as a ready light. The Manta is the most powerful strobe of its size with a color temperature balanced great macro or wide angle. A front-mounted fiber optic port is designed to minimize stress on the cord and reduce the possibility of accidental firing off surface reflections or other divers' flashes. The battery compartment is independently waterproof sealed to protect the strobe's electronics in the event of accidental flooding.

The Manta brings all of these features to almost any digital camera system with built-in flash—from point-and-shoot to DSLR. Both 1-inch ball and 3/4-inch flex mounts are available to attach the Manta to virtually any system. We recommend the 4087.41 Manta Flex Arm, which includes an extended lightweight and flexible arm, plus everything needed to mount the Manta to any Ikelite tray, release handle, or DSLR top mount.
