    On a recent Carribean dive trip, a group of divers from Russia was diving with me
    and one the divers had a strobe light attached to his BC ....

    During one dive, viz was not so great ( 10 - 20 meters ), and I could easily see this
    diver's strobe blinking even if I could not even see a shadow of him !!!!

    For safety reasons, I'm thinking of running to my LDS and get one of those strobes .... but since I'm an UW photographer, will this flashing light scare the fish away ????

    I once heard of a guy that killed a shark with his strobe

    It shouldn't. I have not heard that it has for those that use them.
