Light & Motion has announced the release of the SOLA 600 compact imaging light. It is designed for use with all imaging systems, from compact cameras to video housings and produces 679 lumens of light for a maximum of 75 minutes burn time. It is designed to have an even beam pattern and can also deliver 225 lumens of red light for night close-up work.
Testers have reported that the SOLA’s tiny size and light weight (.54lbs/245g) make it an ideal travel companion and added no noticeable additional weight to a camera rig. It features a six LED array for white light which is adjustable through three output levels, and a four LED red light array.
As a video light, the custom reflectors provides an even 75 degree beam. The magnetic bump switch takes a light tap to adjust white light levels or to switch to red light. As it is pressure tested and factory sealed, the SOLA never needs to be opened. Its recharge times is 2.5 hours with exposed gold-plated plugs in the rear of the body for attachment to the charger. The light also features a charge status indicator to help the diver manage the battery life across multiple dives.
