    Greetings scuba friends!

    I'm looking to purchase my first strobe and can't decide which one of these to get. I mostly take close up pictures (not necessarily macro specifically) but worried that I would find myself not having sufficient lighting in say a frame with a shark or ray swimming past.

    Is MF-1 legit revolutionary that it is comparable to old school strobes or is it still not quite there yet? Keen to see some non-macro photos taken with either strobes if you're happy to share :)

    I do find the MF-1 a bit awkwardly long but do like the fact that it uses 18650 battery, simply because my torch also uses that battery and I already carry a spare of that.

    Many thanks in advance for sharing your experiences!

    Loved the mf1 but really not strong enough for anything but macro, my opinion
