In Topic: Really Bad Light & Motion experience....

11 September 2011 - 08:22 PM

I have had some different experiences with L&M i delt with jim and trish in the past and had numerous things serviced and changed to a very high standard. I do however think that L&M do not stock old parts in an attempt to force you to buy their newer gear which is annoying. I bought a remote pro monitor from the US (I am in the UK and it was cheaper for me to buy it from the states) I had changed one in the past to PAL from NTSC at a small cost. I tried to get this done but they no longer stock any of parts. Also I wanted a base plate for a mako housing which i had lost, they no longer had this item in stock rendering the housing useless as i can't mount a video camera in the housing. for people who have stuck with L&M you would think they would keep parts or have the ability to make new ones!

[/anyone want to buy a L&M remote pro monitor complete??]

How much do you want for it? Does it have any cables? Is it still NTSC? (I'm in California.) How old is it - has it been used at all, since you couldn't convert it to PAL? Does it work - is the battery OK? All I REALLY need right now is a standard short housing/monitor connector cable, but I know the monitor's days are numbered.

My understanding is that the battery can still be replaced but the main circuit board is no longer available so when that goes then goodnight monitor. Of course they told me at one point that the bulbs for my HIDs were "no longer available" and it turned out Welch Allyn still made and sold them...) I do love the little submarine (a Bluefin for the Sony HDR/HC5,7,9, bought new wa-a-ay back in late 2007.) But I don't want to buy a monitor back or anything else from L&M again. Wonder if they even still stock o-rings for the Bluefin...

Thank you all! It was indeed in Humann & Deloach. Just didn't strike me as a "Swim with Pectoral Fins/Obvious Scales" type and I zoomed in on all the wrong ID details - duh!

Now I just need to figure out how to de-activate this post...
