Whilst constructing the latest Dual Head video Lights - http://subsurfacetec...HeadProject.php

 

It occurred to me that the same technology could be employed in my primary dive light which is a 35watt HID.

 

As a primary light it is perfect, but for Video it leaves a lot to be desired - you can follow the integration here

http://subsurfacetec...ddeLProject.php

 

The light can be run in Automatic mode - meaning the controlling MCU changes the power setting to the LED's based on the Heat Sink temperature or in manual mode where the power setting can be changed by swiping a hand across the face of the lens.

 

A more detailed description of the control logic and how it is implemented is currently under construction and will be posted when completed.

All Done.

Website and Flickr updated with the Final construction pictures and write up.

Just starting a pair of short bodied video lights - converting a 9 Watt MR16 bulb ( 12 volts ) to 5 volts and using a simple MCU controlled PWM driver.

In actual fact the torches are finished but I have just started the website updates - will post when complete.
