Ronni, why not try a Norwegian ikelite dealer?


Mainly because i like buying used if possible.. (and if i don't need it asap)

Got four(!) new ones for 13$ inc shipping!

Thanks Torstein! Got them today, looks mint, great deal! Merry Christmas :)

I have done tripod-mount long exposure painting with light in a cave but there's not really much information to share. 30 sec exposure and paint away. :-)
You want to be methodical about your painting - wide beam light. Consider having a preset focus because it's a pain to focus the camera in the dark.

Yeah not all shure about pre focus or not.... guess it comes down to what the main subject will be. Thanks

Ok thanks..
I have done lot's of layering/blend mode and stuff like that so i know my way around that,and agree, multible exposures are better than very long ones.

I see endless possibles playing around with this, but can't revile to much before i tryed some of it out ;)

I got only one archon video light at the moment, so I'll try to make the most of it for now. . Not doing any big reef or wreck stuff just yet anyways.

Guess i might have to play around with some light painting in air before i take it underwater.

Have a regular alu tripod modified for hanging some weights i made up for it, will be pretty sturdy it looks like. Weights hanging low on it, and housing a few xxx grams positive to reduce a "bouncing effect".

Looking into making a tiny housing for my cordless remote aswell, not ahure how well it will work underwater tho (?)

it's not the best noise regarding camera i got, but oh well. I'll make it work.
