How Well do DS-125 Work As Dive Lite?

And any difficulties in using them for a focus light? (Canon 20D camera.)

Life is a beach and then you dive.

To create a night dive red focus assist light, I placed a piece (cut to size with a scissor) of Roscolux #027 film inside a flashlight. Just place the red film between the reflector and the inside of the lens and screw in place. The film is extremely thin and from my experience will not detract from the watertightness of the unit (YMMV ). I've been successful with this approach with a Pelican 4D and a UK mini Q 40.

If you are diving with someone with a powerful light - one of my regular buddies has a light cannon - then you may feel that they are not strong enough because his light will overwhelm yours. However diving at a distance from others they are fine.
I like them because it means less clutter on a night dive and less of a tendency for all the night critters to disappear in the sun like beams of some torches.

I turn one to staging leaving the other set to on, then switch halfway through the dive...Just in case I didn't charge them after the afternoon dives.
Nikon D300, D70s & a bunch of Ikelite stuff and all sorts of stuff my wife doesn't know about. Shhhhhh!
