In Topic: not so noticeable carrying case for air travel?

I would not use zip ties to lock the luggage, just leave it open.  I had zip ties on my stowed luggage and the tsa wanted to get inside, so instead of cutting the zip tie, they cut the zipper pull.

In Topic: Light & Motion: really bad service

which light do you have?  I bought the lm light because I liked the very even light spread and compact size.  


I really don't know why so many people use L&M light. When I first shopping for video light, I looked around and the L&M is normally 2X the price of those China light like Archon. I took the gamble and bought those China light and haven't had a problem for 3 years. Am I missing something with L&M? From what I read, sometimes the lumen rating of the China brand is not 1:1 to those like in L&M, but it shouldn't be off more than 25%.



I'm tempted to save and invest in a Keldan light, but then I keep asking myself what my existing cheap light can't do and fulfill my need? Once in a while I get caught up by the idea that the "brand is the industry standard".....

I has a similar situation with LM, but did not think it was bad service, not great, but not bad.  I have a sola 1200 for 23 months.  They honored the warranty and said they would replace the internals of the unit, but the circuit board was back ordered and will be ready in 6 weeks.  I said I am going a way and need it on the 6th week, they said they would put me first on the list to be repaired, but no guarantee.  They told me this after I shipped the light.  I was not happy that I sent the light in with plenty of time to be repaired and returned in time for my trip.  If I knew there would have been any issue, i would have repaired the light when i get home, dealt with my lights issue and would have not sent it in for repair.  The light was returned 2 days prior to my trip.  So all was settled, but I was nervous and prepared to borrow a friends lights.


If I need to buy a new light in the future, i will not buy a non replaceable battery light.
