Dive Lights for Underwater Exploration
The underwater world is beautiful, mysterious, and always waiting to be explored. Professional divers and divers that do it for a hobby can all agree on this. Whether you're exploring a beautiful coral reef or a mysterious underwater cave, it's important to have the right gear on you so that your dive is safer and more enjoyable. One such tool that will come in handy during any dive is a dive light. If you dive during the day, you may not think you need one, but even then it will still come in handy. Having a dive light allows you to see even through small cracks and crevices in rock formations and coral reefs. When you go on a dive, you don't want to miss anything and a flashlight will guarantee that.
Depending on the goal of your dive, different dive lights can serve different purposes. For example, a diver who wants a flashlight to search in those cracks and crevices we mentioned before may not need the same light as a diver who is tackling night diving or exploring shipwrecks. That being said, there are common features that divers want in any flashlight.
Common Diving Light Features
First of all, the flashlight needs to be comfortable in a diver's hand with a secure grip. You certainly don't want to drop a flashlight while you're in the water. Some dive lights come with lanyards or flashlight clips to prevent the flashlight from leaving your person. Also, the switches and controls need to be easy to operate. The Fenix SD series is designed so that you can easily and quickly operate the flashlight with a single hand. Given how things are underwater, you can see how a simple operation is imperative.
For dive lights, it's also important to have multiple brightness levels. Sometimes you need a higher output and sometimes a lower output will suffice. It's a good idea to have options this way you can conserve the battery or illuminate an entire area if necessary.
With these features in mind, let's take a closer look at the Fenix SD series flashlights. As I mentioned before, the SD series ensures an extremely easy operation of the LED light, specifically with a rotary switch on the head. So you can operate an SD series flashlight with a single hand and without much fuss, perfect for a dive light. The SD series will also come with something to make sure you don't lose the flashlight whether it's a diving lanyard or a flashlight clip. Either way, it will ensure that you keep your flashlight on you.
Also, you can expect multiple outputs as well as a red light with your SD series dive light. The red beam is particularly useful for underwater photography as it will filter out some of the blue and green, making your photos more colorful and bright with those red tones. Speaking of underwater photography, check the product descriptions of any SD series flashlight to look for what kind of LED it uses. A neutral white LED may be better for underwater photography rather than a cool white light which may highlight those blue and green colors that are already quite overpowering underwater.
Unbeatable Fenix Dive Lights
Whether you're a seasoned diver wanting to tackle night diving, a diver who just wants to look into the small crevices of coral reefs, or an underwater photographer, you want to make sure you have the best dive light possible. Fenix combines their LED technology with everything that makes a dive light excellent. You can expect a durable and reliable tool that you will depend on in every dive with a Fenix SD series flashlight.
