Sola 2000 failures

04 April 2014 - 04:30 PM

Hello fellow Wetpixellers,

Over the last few years I have purchased 3 Sola 2000 lights. Over the course of these 2 years, they have all failed for the same reason, the switch. Now the third one has died and I'm unable to get them repaired here.

After getting no help from the L&M support online I am wondering if anyone else has had this problem and what was done about it.

I would like them repaired. After all they are $700+ each and should have lasted more than 50 dives or so.

Is there a way to bypass the switch. I was assuming it was magnetically activated but I might be wrong.

Any feed back would be much appreciated.






5D Mk 3

Hello fellow Wetpixellers, I am considering investing in the 5DMk 3 and Nauticam system to cover low level stills and footage both above and below. I am wondering iof anyone out there has any recommendations for WA zoom lenses together with dome optics/extensions/diopters/TCs. I'm leaning at the moment towards the 16-35 canon for this. Additionally what do people use for editing the footage produced, (I'm currently using FCP7)Will Express be necessary? Also MWB methods. Red filter/White Slate/Sun/fins? What works best for people? All feedback would be much appreciated. All the best Richard

Underwater Stock Footage

10 March 2014 - 07:13 PM

Hello fellow Wetpixelers,

During the effort to fully catalog over 5 years of underwater filming on an almost daily basis I have been finding some "Hidden Gems" that I had forgotten about due to the pressure to turn things around for the next day.

I am only half way through the phenomenal number of tapes but to break up the monotony of viewing, extraction, key-wording etc I have put together a short show reel which uses a minute fraction of what I have found so far. Clips chosen mainly for how they flow into each other.


So I thought I would share it with you.


Footage shot between Jan 2008 and Jan 2010.





Crustacean ID Please?

Hello everyone, I'm wondering if I can get some help with this critter?: http://www.footagese...ips/RBR022_0060

A Crab of sorts living in a burrow dug by it or vacated by a boring worm or something.

One colourful character and there's so many here but I don't know the name!


The internet here is SO slow that searching online takes longer than writing this request and waiting a couple of days for a reply....


So any help would be much appreciated!
