Unlike most strobe and video light arms, Ultralight arms offer easy lighting adjustments without the need to constantly loosen and tighten the flexible joints. Once your in the water, first loosen each clamp and then gently tighten to the desired tension. On current free dives you'll be able to grab the strobe head and effortlessly move it into position. If the current picks up, slightly tighten the clamps for a stiffer hold.

Their unique holding power comes from an o-ring gripper that circles the ball and insures a tight fit with the clamp. All Ultralight parts are precision machined from aluminum and hard anodized to prevent corrosion. These arms are basically maintenance free, but we recommend to clean and grease the stainless clamp bolts at least once a year for maximum performance. See our listing for Lanacote Grease.

Most of our customers call this system an adult erector set. In fact, you can adapt these arms to just about anything and lengthen or shorten them for each job. Our Simple Arm Package is a basic set that will get you started. Eventually, most of our customers choose to add a second arm and clamp to increase the versatility of the system.

Our Double Arm Package features these extra components and allows you to fold the arm back on its self for tight spaces or stretch out for the wide shot. To purchase, select the appropriate adapters for your strobe and camera below. Select a long arm for wide angle, a short one for macro, or run down the middle for both.
