The new LSD prime is the most fun and easy to use Light Shaping Device we have ever made. Choosing from one of the thirteen standard shapes you can never run out of ideas for shaping your light beam. And they are easily exchangeable too. The housing is anodized aluminium and tested at 6 bar. With the same lens technology we used to win a gold medal on the World UWP Championship we are bringing the highest levels of performance in a product that costs just 349,00€ (incl.VAT)

The LSD pro is aimed at advanced UW photographers looking for the highest levels of performance, design and quality. LSD pro features the most advanced optical system ever used for Light Shaping. The state-of-the-art dual lens technology was developed to be small, light and incredibly efficient. To achieve the highest standard in precision and quality machining, housings for the LSD pro are hand made by skilled craftsmen chosen by Retra Underwater Technology. The LSD pro with eight standard shapes starts at 599,00€ (incl.VAT)
The Anti Reflex coating is an option for the LSD pro and it improves the overall light output by more than 12%.
With the AR coating comes a anti-scratch polymer coating that helps protect the lenses and the AR coating on a longer term.

The LSD has changed a lot since his review in July 2011 but the basic idea around Light Shaping stayed the same.
The combination of lenses and optical elements inside the Retra Light Shaping Device and it's components
are an innovation protected by a pending patent.
