My DIY Solution to Buoyancy Arms for Underwater Strobe

INON Mega Float Arm (Medium) sale price PHP 3,300.00

DIY Kids R Us Floaters price ~ PHP 250.00

Small fad among my dive buddies. It just so happens that these foam funnels from Kids R’ Us (they’re everywhere!) have a perfectly sized donut hole that fits the standard size arms for underwater strobes. Yay, cheap!

Buoyancy arms are there to balance out the heavy weight of your underwater camera so that you have an easier time carrying it underwater. Mine’s made of foam.
