Glowdive 12000 formerly Scubalamp V6K?

14 March 2018 - 03:22 PM

Does anyone know if the Glowdive 12000 is the same as the Scubalamp V6K? Scubalamp seems to no longer be in business, though their website is still live. Does anyone have recent experience with Glowdive/Scubalamp lights?

Magenta video light filters in green water

07 March 2018 - 04:59 PM

Hi all,


I foresee myself picking up some video lights this year for diving around my home waters in Atlantic Canada. The water here, particularly in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, is very green (during the summer) much like it is off British Columbia. The green can be super intense, which I realize can be toned down in post, but I'm wondering if anyone uses magenta filters on their video lights in green water. If so, who sells them or do you build your own?

Nauticam D500 flash trigger issues

08 January 2018 - 05:37 PM

Hi folks. Sending this out to the Wetpixel community. Recently bought a dual fiber optic sync cord for my new-to-me Nauticam D500 housing. Cord came today just in time for a trip starting Thursday. However, when I hooked the cable up I discovered that the strobes do not fire on the first flash, but that as long as the shutter is held down thereafter the strobes fire just fine.


In other words, when looking at the flash trigger inside the housing (rear of housing removed) the green LED at the top of the circuit board doesn't light up, but on the second frame and any thereafter it does light up and the strobes fire. Of course, if I pull my finger off the trigger for a few seconds the problem starts all over again.


I think the issue has to do with the flash trigger. In fact, I'm attaching a photo that shows some possible damage to the trigger just to the left of dip switches at the top. Thoughts?
