This device builds on the experience gained by our engineers and by the collaboration with underwater photography and video professionals. This synergy made possible to create a lighting system with unique features in its kind, suitable for underwater video footage and macro photography. The magnetic rotating switch allows a practical management of the three different values of output power available.
This device, designed for the first time by Easydive in 2008, contained a Bridgelux LED with 2000 lumens output. Over the years, it has evolved along with the LEDs and switched to 2600 lumens (CRI 85) in 2010, to 4000 lumens (CRI 90) in 2014. In 2017, after extensive tests done at sea and in the Y-40 pool, after comparing different color temperatures we opted for a brand new LED with 3500° Kelvin, 4800 lumen (CRI 93), and with a beam angle of 110 °.
All our customers had the chance to take advantage of all these improvements without changing the lighting body by simply replacing the electronic control unit and LEDs to a cost of 150 €, including assembly and testing. Another great advantage is that the strobe has no water ways because it is made from a solid aluminum block. Recharging takes place via an external waterproof connector, and therefore it is not necessary to open the strobe for access to the batteries. This eliminates any possibility of error in the closure and guarantees a perfect seal up to -150m. Thanks to the new LiFe batteries (lithium iron phosphate), which do not produce gas during use and charging, it was possible to eliminate any other eventual water way like cap or pressure relief valve. We placed flaps which enable a rapid cooling in water.
On the front side, the Revolution has a full crystal lens. Unlike products using domes or flat glasses, this lens allows, in water, to triple the light's depth of field. This is a big advantage. From comparative tests run on the same lightning device, the differences in the water between a flat glass and this crystal lens are outstanding. Moreover, we inserted a special photographic film to uniform the light and soften it to the edges. All these features make the Revolution a product equipped with powerful light, dense and deep, illuminating diffusely the scene and able to make the most of the colors of the subjects we are going to frame.
In the rear is the magnetic power switch and power range management, allowing you to adjust the light to 30% at the first stop, to 65% at the second and switch to 100% with the third stop. The power knob is also equipped with a safety lock, to avoid an accidental switch on.
Autonomies are the following:
30% - about 4 hours
70% - about 1hour and 30 minutes
100% - about 60 minutes + 5 minutes at the minimum power.
Charging time is about 3 hours (fully discharged to fully charged).
We are so confident about the construction quality of our lighting system that, in the event of flooding, Easydive will repair it under warranty since the user cannot flood it for his mistake. (Excluded flooding due to damages from shock or breakage of the lens that would compromise the perfect seal).
