How do you assess the power output of a video light?

08 November 2012 - 02:46 PM

I'm looking to buy a pair of UW lights to go with my Gopro Hero 2.

I keep seeing lights measured in Lumens and LUX.

Is that the same?

I know that more is better but what power do I "need" for the light to be useful?

I saw a cheap light that I thought might get me started with 640LUX output. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/400280134437

Is that a useful starter light or is it just a toy to waste money on?

Thanks in advance for any advice you can give. :-)
