i posted this in the beginners section but i figure this are will have more exposure. Mods please feel free to delete my other post.


Hi I have been looking around for an UW video setup and i am in a bit of a conundrum.

I can go ahead and buy a cheap used system HI8 for $500-$700 (without lights & WA lens) using Top Dawg 1 to see if I like it but with this set-up since I will be doing mostly fresh water & deepish (150'); I can already see issues with lighting and WB. Filters wont work due to lack of light. If I decided to go ahead with this it would be for mostly playing around in the shallows with a fresh water filter to see if I like UW Video.

Another option is getting a used L&M Bluefin HC7 housing with the Sony HC7/compact external monitor with twin 50W HIDs as lighting. This has the standard port not the WA lens. I can pick this up for just over $4K. I can see this as a system i could use for a long time.

What have most people done when 1st getting into video?
