Gobe 700 wide x2 + GoPro

07 August 2014 - 05:41 PM

I am eyeing a pair of Gobe 700 wides to go with my GoPro.  I like the Gobe because I can use it for more than just video lights...change the head and it is a great dive light..etc.  Is a pair of 700 lights going to be adequate for fairly close video with the wide angle GoPro?  Am I just going to get irritated that I dropped $700 on these lights and heads?  I'm just starting out so spending ~$1400 on a pair of Solas to go with a $400 camera doesn't seem worth it...but I could be convinced with a solid argument.  I only get to dive about 6-10 days per year because I live 7.5 hours from the ocean.  Thoughts, advice, insults...send them my way.  Thanks for all the help.

Spinner dolphins and color challenges

22 June 2014 - 02:00 PM

Hi all,

I am back in the water after a 5 year break from photography and the water. I took this in Kona, HI right near the harbor entrance.  I struggled a ton with the color...may just be the limits of light, depth, and GoPro.

Shore Diving in Kona

03 June 2014 - 07:59 PM

I'll be in Kona from June 9- June 17(last day I can dive).  I'm looking for shore dive buddies.  I know of a few spots from previous trips, but also have a few new ones I would like to try.  Wife is normally the buddy but she can't dive right now due to us trying to have a kid.  I have a porch pass to dive, but I don't ever dive solo.  

 

Please drop me a line if you are interested.

 

Thank you,

 

James
