    A versatile slave flash designed for multiple purposes. The kit includes the slave flash, a waterproof housing (175 feet), mounting brackets for land and water use, flex arm, 3 flash diffusers and spare O-rings. An optional fiber optic cable is also available.

    Welcome to the forum!! Nice photo's on FLICKR...

    I have never run into this strobe before... I found it listed for $149. I would be surprised if this would offer a quality solution for UW photography. Could not find any more details so I don't want to bag on a product I don't really know about.
    Good little strobes for small P&S cameras. But it would be totally wasted on a G9. It's like putting a Tail fin from Pep Boys on a Ferrari.

    An underwater light is only useful for assistance with focusing. It is not powerful enough to replace a strobe.

    I will second that.
    Unless your underwater light is a 21w Salvo HID
