Hi there!
I now use a Sony VX 2000 in a Ampihibico housing and I am very happy with my gear.
I have Amphibicos halogen light system and I usually use 2x 50w.
Now I have been offered to buy a set of Halcyon Apollo Video 13.5ah dual 50watt HID lights with arms at a good price and I am tempted.
I once owned a Halcyon light and it was a piece of s... but I hear that they are much better now.
Do you have any ideas, comments or pointers I would be very greatful!

Cheers
Rodge

Please use the video forum for video related questions. The still boys are so one shot minded that way. :excl:

Halcyon lights are fine, in fact their quality control is now second to none :P
If I were to buy HID then I'd go for the Halcyon Apollo of if I needed even more light then I'd go for the Halcyon HMI200 (soon to be released).
