Product Overview

Fenix SD11 diving light is specifically designed for underwater photography and video shooting. The advanced “R+” mode is made for better color rendering with a combination of neutral white LED light and red LED light. R+ mode makes the SD11 an effective light for underwater viewing, photographing, video shooting and even photography on the shore since red light is extraordinarily scarce. Featuring a soft wide beam and R+, SD11 is fit for both illumination and photography on shore or in water. In addition, the 100m waterproof classification, maximum 1000 lumens and low battery warning makes the SD11 perfect for the demands of safe deep diving photography. Easily choose output selection with the magnetic rotating ring while you are diving. The included flashlight clip and camera mount are compatible with most of the sports cameras and DSLRs.

Operation Instruction

Rotate the magnetic ring to turn on/off the light, to select the wanted output level, and to check the battery level. From left to right: Battery level, R+, Off, White low, White high.


Battery Level Indication

Rotate the magnetic ring to the battery icon. There are three statuses: 


Red light constantly on: Sufficient 


Red light slow flash: Low 


Red light quick flash: Critical, replace the battery soon as possible


** Safe Diving Illumination Design

  1. If the detected voltage is lower than the preset voltage when used on High output or Low output, the output will automatically step down to prolong the runtime.
  2. If the detected voltage is lower than the preset voltage when used on the combination light mode, the red light will go out and the white light will automatically step down, thus to remind of battery replacement as soon as possible.

Intelligent Overheat Protection

The light will accumulate a lot of heat when used at High output level for extended periods. If the light reaches a temperature of 65℃ or above, it will automatically step down by a few lumens until 700 lumens output is reached. When the temperature is reduced, the output will gradually return to High output level.


Battery Replacement

Unscrew the tail cap to insert the battery with the anode side (+) towards the light head, then screw the tail cap back on.


Accessories Assembling

With the sports camera 

  1. Mount the flashlight to the flashlight clip, tighten and close the locker (available flashlight diameter ranges 23-26mm).
  2. Connect the 3 ridges pivot arm of the flashlight holder and the 2 ridges pivot arm of the waterproof cover of the sports camera; tighten the long thumb screw.
  3. Connect the 2 ridges pivot arm of holder and other accessories or the handheld floating bar; tighten the short thumb screw.

With the camera hot shoe adapter 

  1. Mount the flashlight to the flashlight clip, tighten and close the locker (available flashlight diameter ranges 23-26mm).
  2. Connect the 2 ridges pivot arm of the flashlight holder and the 3 ridges pivot arm of the camera mount, tighten the short thumb screw.
  3. Connect the camera mount and the hot shoe of the camera, tighten the hand gear.
  4. The bottom port can be connected with the tripod via a cradle.

Usage and Maintenance

  • Disassembling the sealed head can cause damage to the light and will void the warranty.
  • Fenix recommends using excellent quality batteries.
  • If the light will not be used for an extended period, remove the battery, or the light could be damaged by electrolyte leakage or battery explosion.
  • Long-term use can result in O-ring wear. To maintain a proper watertight seal, replace the ring with an approved spare.
  • Periodic cleaning of the battery contacts improves the lamp's performance as dirty contacts may cause the lamp to flicker, shine intermittently or even fail to illuminate for the following reasons:

A: The battery needs replacing. 

Solution: Replace battery (Ensure battery is inserted according to the manufacturer’s specifications). 

B: The threads, PCB board contact or other contacts are dirty. 

Solution: Clean the contact points with a cotton swab soaked in rubbing alcohol. If the above methods don't work, please refer to the warranty policy before contacting your authorized distributor.



The flashlight is a high-intensity lighting device capable of causing eye damage to the user or others. Avoid shining the flashlight directly into anyone’s eyes.

Great camera light, can't imagine I'll ever use it diving. My best swim stroke is the prolonged drown. Be even better if a non-dive version was available for a bit less cost. Not that it mattered this time as it was a gift. Another great product. Easy to use & flat out works. Broad, bright, even light makes taking pics so much easier. I imagine it will continue to perform as well as my LD10, LD12-2017, E01 v2 & E12 v2. Spot a trend? (Hint = happy repeat customer)

I bought this light to use with my DSLR while shooting video. I'm not a diver so I couldn't tell you the first thing about this light for underwater use. However, I will tell you that if you shoot video for any reason with a DLSR, you need this light! My only regret is that I waited this long to buy it. I've been looking at it on the Fenix Lighting site over the last year wondering if I should get it. I kept thinking it's mainly diving specific but do not pass this little gem by for a second if you like to shoot video. The light that comes has ZERO artifacts in it. There is ZERO hotspot. It's just one huge beautiful circle of amazing light. I'm telling you, you've got to try it to believe it. I'm sold 100% for video use. The low puts out plenty of light to light up my subject 10-15 feet away. The high is more than enough to give a little more punch if you decide you need it. The mount that comes with it works perfect in the camera hotshoe. You can even mount a GoPro on top of it so that there are two cameras going! Nice touch! The red works great in nature where white light is sometimes too harsh. So many options with this light. I'd also say it would serve as a great emergency light since it's rated to go deep into the water. I don't see how you could break this thing. Would come in handy in a rainy, cold, wet emergency situation. Don't wait to get it. Put it in your cart and check you. You'll thank me later.

The Fenix Dive light series is awesome. They are very bright and hold up well. I would like to see more lights in this lineup. As a diver a good light is invaluable at depth when natural light fades or at night. These lights rival other brands that cost significantly more. Very pleased with this product.

Dirk Hardtmann

Love the rotating ring for selecting the mode. Very robust feeling, uses standard batteries, and is able to bring some color back into underwater pictures.
