SeaLanterns’ new Flame Angel GoPro compatable lights bring ‘true colour’ to underwater video

Published

on

Finding Nemo has never been this easy and capturing colourful memories has never been such an in- depth experience as with SeaLantern’s brand new Flame Angel video and sport lights just launched on Kickstarter, boasting an extreme 300 meter depth rating and unrivalled effortless operation due to a new type of switch technology they’ve developed.

SeaLantern claims that the Flame Angel doubles the performance of its nearest rivals and sheds an average of US $100 from its competitor’s price tag, making it the best value sport and video flashlight on the market.

“Our customers aren’t too fussed that we racked our brains inside out to make Flame Angel what she is, but they do appreciate that she can be mounted anywhere they mount their GoPros, that she operates with ease and reliability deeper than anyone dares to scuba dive, is offensively bright, compact, usb rechargeable, robust and sexy, in fact timeless – inherent of her great design. But man, did we push our engineering and design capabilities to their absolute limit and then some more onto the edge of madness when we designed Flame Angel the way we wanted to operate and assemble her – effortlessly,” says Carl Thom, Founder & CEO of SeaLantern Limited.

Designed to restore the colours naturally lost underwater which is a familiar frustration amongst scuba divers when all they see is blue or green, especially in their videos and photographs, it’s clear that Flame Angel has been crafted with passion.

From the unapologetic overly engineered electronics, stubborn surface finishes covering 3 different meticulously selected marine grade alloys to choose from and the brand new type of user interface that SeaLantern calls PPEC+ (peepec plus) consisting of zero moving parts with no chance to leak, wear out, jam or flood, Flame Angel packs a whopping 1,000Lm punch in two different beam styles for Sport and Video aficionados.

Flame Angel has been designed to last a lifetime worth of adventure for both above and below water use for videographers, photographers, explorers, adventurers and scuba divers alike.

Mares & SSI launch new promotion

Published

on

SSI expands financial support to SSI Members worldwide. 

2020 has been an unusual and challenging year for the entire world, especially the diving and travel industry!  To weather the crisis, SSI immediately jumped into action to help Training Centers and Professionals around the world.  

In response to COVID-19, SSI launched the No Water, No Problem Campaign, put Final Exams online, and held hundreds of Webinars to train Professionals on how to use distance learning to teach the dry Specialties online. The FREE SCIENCE OF DIVING promotion resulted in SSI Training Centers worldwide register over 50,000 FREE DIGITAL KITS, funding more than $3.5 MILLION IN RETAIL VALUE. Additionally, SSI introduced an aggressive DOUBLE PRO REWARDS incentive to help SSI Professionals compensate 2020 Renewal Fees and reduce those for 2021. Currently, the WE WANT YOU Crossover promotion aims to fill the industry need for instructors and strengthen the entire SSI Professional community.

Now, in conjunction with Mares, SSI is launching the GO DIVING – PROTECT YOURSELF. OWN EQUIPMENT Promotion, which includes a FREE SSI EQUIPMENT TECHNIQUES DIGITAL KIT. This new campaign strives to motivate divers worldwide to go diving and buy equipment. Look for more information on this next retail support campaign within the next few days.

“These are just a few examples of how we have supported and are continuing to support our Training Centers, Professionals, and divers worldwide. To provide even more economic security and help in business recovery, WE WILL NOT INCREASE PRICES FOR 2021. While travel was restricted and some key resort areas completely locked down, SSI mainly focused on supporting domestic markets with retail-driven incentives. Now, in this next re-opening phase, we need to shift gear and assist resort markets that have no local diving community and are 100% dependent on the traveling diver. Therefore, SSI will grant certain special conditions and delayed payment options to specific resort markets which have been locked down for longer than six months or suffered from closed borders,” stated Guido Waetzig, SSI CEO.

Guido Waetzig, SSI CEO, explains further, “To financially support these needed investments which directly benefit SSI Members and to protect the health of our valuable members and staff, we will forego all 2021 Trade Shows over the next 12 months. Despite international uncertainty, every time we experience one of these events, the entire SSI Network emerges stronger and more resilient. Be assured, SSI is your trustful partner within the Diving Industry!”
