With its compact dimension (comparable to a backup dive torch), the MF-1 Mini Flash from Backscatter is mainly designed for macro enthusiasts who favor a narrow beam angle and the possibility to point light to areas or subjects bulky underwater strobes cannot reach.

However, this strobe, with its guide number of 16 and its ability to fire 1,400 flashes with a fully charged Nitecore NL1835HP 18650 battery, is, according to the manufacturer, capable of lighting smaller and mid-sized wide-angle scenes or subjects as well, when using the optional diffuser. The strobes support five power settings, is triggered by an optical cable, and has a built-in 500-Lumen focus light, which is adjustable to three different power settings. When combined with the optional OS-1 optical snoot, the Mini Flash can create a light beam of just 6mm in diameter, while still allowing shots with ISO 64 and F/32. Furthermore, the strobe allows mounting of colour filters, which will be available in the first quarter of 2020.
