In Topic: FS: Fisheye FIX LED 750DX Focusing Light

06 August 2012 - 06:37 PM

I might be interested.

Online documentation for anything from Fisheye is sketchy, but this model is probably worse because they count it is discontinued. One thing I haven't been able to determine about these fisheye lights is whether they have the ability to turn off when a strobe fires. I'm looking for a focus light that can do double duty as a video light, but the beam spread of this light doesn't seem wide enough to prevent a hotspot when taking a photo. I am curious what the light can do, and how you were able to use it. Did you use it for photo, video, or both?

Well, I can tell you that it is a nice focusing light. It has never flooded and I only used it a few times, all in fresh water (cave diver). I would not recommend it as a video light due to it's narrow coverage but I am sure you could use it with a diffuser or maybe use two video lights to widen the coverage..

Also, this light will not turn off when the strobe fires. It did not make a difference when I used it as a modeling light.

I had no issues, other than size, with this light. I am now using a Solas light, lighter to travel with and compact.

Dive safe,

Hi, I would like to buy a Focus Light (f.e.: Fisheye, light and motion...)
Anything for sale?

Thanks

I have a very lightly used (a couple of weekends in freshwater only) Fisheye 750DX

Depending on where you purchased, they may be able to repair.
Last time, I sent mine to Backscatter, though I actually purchased the light in Singapore.. I believe Reef Photo also repair.
I sent one to Fisheye in Japan the first time, but the postage is outrageous. They replaced all the internals, but missed a bad o-ring under the switch, and it flooded again.
Both times, everything covered by warranty.

Good light, but Intovas are more affordable and, I believe, less prone to failure.

Thank you, looks like the light is going to Backscatter...

I'll take a peek at the Intovas, the Sola 1200 we borrowed was really NICE, just short burn time..

Dive safe,
