In Topic: Gopro - recommended video light arm length?

Yeh the challenging conditions is the reason for the gopro really.

I was looking at the FIT 1200 as the two video lights but u have put me off now/saved me money one way or other. :). I was thinking of using X1 video light as a focus light on camera housing. Yeh have the 9-18mm with zen dome.

Just all this talk of strong currents I am thinking of shooting video with gopro mainly I think and just enjoying the diving.

Looking at decent tray/handle combo and set of flip 3.1 filters.

love the video.


When do you find it best to use dual video lights?


I guess using filter and a good post process is the way to go. just always thought lights were better than filter.

thanks interceptor. I am thinking the backscatter flip 3.1 filter with the magenta for the green water and one of the red filters. i get where your coming from with regards to the sharks not coming close. was thinking more iguana's, sea lions, turtles, rays etc. As its a once in a lifetime trip just want to cover all areas. :)


From what i have read not all dives are super strong currents. mainly Darwin and Wolf. So wouldn't think shooting a tiny GoPro with couple of lights on tray would be to strenuous? 


Did you shoot GoPro when you were in Galapagos. have you used dual video light with a GoPro set up??

Yeh two set ups. I don't wanna go down road with trying to shoot still and video. I wanna concentrate on one. If not it will be a mess. :).

For the price of a tray and handle etc. like one from backscstter it is just easier for the go pro to hav its own tray etc.

Yeh same concept as strobes then.

Why would u not use the light during the day? Is there a reason? Surely it can only benefit the subject lighting it with the video light or not?

I like to post process so will most prob be using the adobe premiere to do so. I just like to get the best quality/colour when shooting.

Appreciate you helping us out.
