MiniFlash MF-1 by Backscatter
An underwater flash tailored for macro. Compact yet powerful flash Great for compact camera photographers. Easiest macro flash for compact, mirrorless and SLR cameras. Optional optical snoot for more creativity. Most of the conventional wisdom about underwater strobes is that brighter and wider always equals better. If you're doing macro underwater photography, you want the exact opposite. You want tightly controlled light to localise the subject and keep the background as dark as possible. The Backscatter Mini Flash MF-1 is the perfect combination of light and flash for any serious underwater macro photographer. Its tiny size can be used in the tightest of places, and the companion Optical Snoot OS-1 makes it the perfect macro flash to give you the creativity you've been missing.. Streamlined macro flash and focus light in one. If you've ever used a larger flash for wide-angle shots, you know it can be difficult to get into tight areas, especially with two flashes and a separate focus light. The small size of the MF-1 Backscatter Mini Flash makes it easy to manoeuvre and get into tight spaces. With powerful LED focus lights built in, there is no need for a separate focus light to be mounted on the equipment. It is a perfect companion for compact camera photographers looking for a great all-round streamlined flash solution. It is also the perfect solution for advanced mirrorless and SLR photographers who want to reduce their footprint, simplify their lighting and lighten their equipment for better shots. Great performance in a small format Don't let the tiny size fool you. The Backscatter Mini Flash MF-1 has a flash guide number of 16 and can produce up to 1400 flashes, and the dual-beam LED lights run at 500 lumens and high output for üover 1 hour when used with the recommended battery. Six power levels and 3 light intensities - with large controls. Choose the perfect exposure with six flash power levels, while the LED lights have three power levels. A generously sized and cold-water friendly large red knob makes it easy to precisely control flash output without having to take your attention away from looking at the light position when shooting. The large, easy-to-press silver button cycles through the three power levels of the focus lamps, and a long press activates the modelling flash. Double O-ring seal. The battery compartment is equipped with a double O-ring seal to protect you from O-ring maintenance errors. Of course, you will need to clean and maintain the O-rings before each use, but our double seal helps reduce water damage caused by common mistakes. The battery compartment is equipped with a double O-ring seal to protect you from water damage caused by common mistakes. Fibre optics and automatic flash sync. Setting up pre-flash suppression is a breeze. Simply connect a fibre optic cable and take a test shot. The MF-1 Backscatter Mini Flash automatically detects the in-camera flash mode the first time it is switched on and stores it in memory for the first test shot. If you change cameras or settings, simply switch the MF-1 on and off and take another test shot to update the setting. You don't have to worry about the flash being set incorrectly. Get creative with colour filters. Advanced photographers and beginners alike can open up some really crazy possibilities and create some surreal effects. Coloured backgrounds, backlighting and bokeh tricks are much easier to achieve with a flash than with a torch or video light. Colour filters for the MF-1 have been tested and will be delivered in the second quarter of 2020. We are ready to help you experience your delights.

MiniFlash MF-1 with snoot
Included in the package: Mini Flash MF-1 and Optical Snoot OS-1 from Backscatter Compact yet powerful flash Great for compact camera photographers. Easiest macro flash for compact, mirrorless and SLR cameras. Optional optical snoot for more creativity   The easiest to use combination of macro flash and snoot Using an underwater flash with a snoot used to be really difficult. Aiming with a light shaper required a lot of practice. Backscatter have developed the Mini Flash and Optical Snoot together to make shooting with a snoot as easy as possible. With bright LED lights that project the same beam pattern as the flash through the Snoot, you can easily see the exact position of the pilot light on your subject when choosing your bias and know that you are hitting your target. Do you have a subject that doesn't like to stay in continuous light all the time? Use the short-time modelling flash to check the placement of the light beam without constantly disturbing a light-sensitive animal. The Optical Snoot OS-1 is easy to mount, with a simple click on/off. The Optical Snoot OS-1 is small enough to fit in a pocket, making it quick and easy to switch from wide-angle to macro.   The Backscatter Mini Flash MF-1 and the Optical Snoot OS-1 were developed together from the beginning, making them the most efficient, brightest, smallest and easiest to use professional macro flash system.   Super bright snoot for dark backgrounds The key to success in snoot photography is a dark background in bright ambient light. The combination of the MF-1 Backscatter Mini Flash and OS-1 Optical Snoot has been developed together to provide the most efficient transmission of light through the snoot optics. The result is an exposure brighter than any other snoot on the market, helping you to produce the darkest backgrounds. When projecting a 6mm hole, a shot can be taken at ISO 64, 32, which is a perfect setting for getting inky black backgrounds and perfect light on the subject. The combination of backscatter mini flash MF-1 and optical snoot OS-1 has a brighter output compared to other snoot/flash combinations on the market. This shot was taken at ISO 64 and 32 with the flash at full power. No exposure adjustments were made afterwards. Precise lighting control with aperture cards The Backscatter Optical Snoot OS-1 contains 2 aperture cards, 1 circular and 1 oval, each with 4 different sized holes. Shoot a sharply focused beam of light or pull it back a little for a softer edge. Shoot a projected beam as small as 6 mm. With the full range of aperture cards, you can shoot an ultra-small subject all the way up to a large fish portrait. With the oval aperture card, if you shoot the trunk at an angle to the subject, the trunk can be rotated to change the shape of the projected beam from an elongated oval to a circle. No other strobe and snoot system offers such precise control.   One of the main features of the OS-1 optical backscatter snoot is the ability to change not only the size of the projected hole but also the shape of the light beam by simply rotating the attachment with the oval aperture card installed. Using the oval aperture card makes it possible to shape the light so that it hits the subject exactly and not the surrounding sand.

MiniFlash MF-2
An underwater flash designed for macro The Backscatter Mini Flash 2 MF-2 is a major upgrade to the Backscatter Mini Flash MF-1, with tons of new features and performance upgrades, including Olympus TTL, remote strobe control, high-speed sync, test mode, emergency signaling capability, a faster recycle time, and LED lights that are twice as bright as the previous model. All of the accessories from the Backscatter Mini Flash MF-1 carry over to the Backscatter Mini Flash 2 NEW: Automatic TTL For Olympus Cameras NEW: Wireless Remote Control NEW: High-Speed Sync NEW: Built-In 1000 Lumen Focus Light NEW: Test Mode & Beacon NEW: Faster Recycle Time NEW: Bigger Battery, Longer Run Time Most of the conventional wisdom surrounding underwater strobes is that brighter and wider always equals better. If you're shooting macro underwater photography, you want the exact opposite. You want a tightly controlled light to pinpoint the subject and keep the background as dark as possible. The Mini Flash 2 is the perfect flash + snoot combination for any serious underwater macro photographer. Its tiny size can get into the tightest spots and the companion Optical Snoot OS-1 makes it the perfect macro strobe to give you the creativity you've been missing. WIRELESS REMOTE CONTROL The Backscatter Mini Flash 2 features a remote transmit and receive function for wireless remote control and triggering. The remote system works by the main transmitting strobe having the ability to remotely adjust the power level of other Mini Flash 2 receiving strobes. The included Light Pipe attaches to the fiber optic mount of the Mini Flash 2 and allows for receiving the signal from the transmitting strobe without the need for a fiber optic cable or an electronic trigger. No cables and no reaching out for a remote strobe to change power levels means less silt from moving around or potentially freaking out the critter you’re trying to take a picture of. This works great for off-camera remote side lighting, backlighting, and snooting from the new Backscatter Remote Lighting Muck Stick. Remote lighting is now easy to deploy and a breeze to use. Remote lighting can create a whole new look for subjects that normally blend into their environment. The first shot above is with just the Mini Flash 2. The second shot is with a remotely placed Mini Flash 2 and Optical Snoot OS-1 on the Remote Lighting Muck Stick placed above and behind the subject. The third shot is with the Mini Flash 2 and Optical Snoot OS-1 lighting the front and a remotely placed Mini Flash 2 and Optical Snoot OS-1 with the Backscatter Color Filter System on the Remote Lighting Muck Stick placed above and behind the subject. 1000 LUMEN BUILT-IN FOCUS LIGHT With powerful 1000-lumen LED focus lights built-in, there’s no need for a separate focus light to manage on your rig. It makes a perfect companion for compact camera shooters looking for a great all-around streamlined strobe solution. It’s also the perfect solution for advanced mirrorless and SLR shooters looking to reduce their footprint, simplify their lighting and lighten their rig for easier shooting. The LED lights in the Backscatter Mini Flash 2 are now twice as bright as the previous Backscatter Mini Flash MF-1 making this the absolute easiest strobe and snoot combination to use. Even in bright shallow conditions, it is super easy to see the target light from the snoot in the same exact shape and position as the flash. With no guessing on where the flash will fire, the Mini Flash 2 makes it as easy as can be to get perfect snooted shots right out of the box. The LED lights will run up to 90 minutes on a full 21700 battery. AUTOMATIC TTL FOR OLYMPUS CAMERAS The Backscatter Mini Flash 2 is compatible with Olympus’s TTL protocol through RC mode. In our testing, the Olympus RC system produces the most consistent and accurate TTL exposures of any underwater system. The Mini Flash 2 takes this a step further by also having an option for finely tuned macro TTL. Most TTL systems from camera manufacturers have not been optimized for close-up macro use. This usually results in TTL not working well at close distances and lower flash outputs associated with macro, leading to overexposed images. The Mini Flash 2 has a TTL mode specifically tailored to macro that allows for better and more accurate exposures when compared to other systems available. Exposure compensation is possible in TTL and is controlled directly from the camera, but most likely won’t be needed. TTL even works through the Optical Snoot OS-1 for perfect snooted exposures! HIGH SPEED SYNC High Speed Sync (HSS) is where the camera can shoot faster shutter speeds than the camera’s flash sync speed by using a special mode on the underwater flash. HSS allows for wider open apertures while still being able to maintain a darker background than otherwise would be possible at slower shutter speeds. Olympus mirrorless cameras can achieve HSS through Olympus RC mode with compatible housings such as the Backscatter Octo Housing for the Olympus Pen camera or with other brand mirrorless and SLR cameras including Sony, Nikon, and Canon with 3rd party flash triggers that support HSS such as UW Technics and the Turtle trigger from TRT Electronics.
