I'm new on this forum but I go by the sane username on Scubaboard.


I want to get some compact video lights. I'm looking for something similar to Sola 1200s. I shoot wide angle photos and videos so the lights need to have a nice wide angle to them with no hard edge. I mostly shoot in dark but clear water so they don't have to be super powerful but some good power would be nice.


I'm looking to find a good deal between now and Christmas. I convinced my wife that I need this for my Christmas gift.


Looking for used only - If I could afford new I wouldn't be here begging :)


PM me if you have something I should think about.

Still looking. Also open to one single more powerful light like a sola 2000.

Let me know what you have.

I still have these lights available.

They are in great condition.

I liked them because I could use rechargeable AA batteriies that I could interchange with my strobes, instead of proprietary batteries.

Now $190/each 




Good Luck.

You might want to refer to our Video/Focus Light Specifications Chart to compare features of popular lights (not all by any means...).
