DS Strobes

What defines a professional strobe? Photographers with millions of images to their names need a strobe that combines quality of light, speed, and durability. The latest series of DS strobes exemplify these characteristics in a form factor with proven reliability, built of lightweight materials, and powered by the longest-lasting energy supply on the market.
Ikelite strobes are the only ones I have found to be dependable enough for professional use in the harshest conditions on Earth.
