The new RED64 strobe made by Italian manufacturer Isotta comes with a design, shielded electronics, and a microprocessor that is upgradable.
It is also neutrally buoyant in water and depth-rated to 100m. The strobe features a Xenon toroidal lamp, which provides a wide and homogenous spread of light with no hot spot and a color temperature of 5300K.
Isotta RED64 features a guide number of GN22 in water (at a distance of 1m, 100 ISO) and a beam angle of 130 degrees, without a diffusor. The strobe has a two-color focus-light (white and red, switchable). The RED64 is powered by eight Ni-MH AA-sized rechargeable batteries, which are stored in a compartment, sealed and separated from the strobe’s electronics. Strobe controls are visible from every angle.
A multi-color LED indicates mode of operation, strobe readiness and battery status. The strobe can be controlled both automatically and manually; RED64 can be operated with an optical fiber cable, working in TTL mode and in Manual mode as well. Alternatively, it can be used with sync cables through a S6 bulkhead, or Nikonos V, or in slave mode.
