Gopro - recommended video light arm length?

26 April 2015 - 01:56 AM

Hi. I'm currently in process of purchasing gopro 4 rig. From your guys experience what is the recommended length of arms with video light.i like the look/ ease of the locline system. I see they do 6" and 12". Am mainly purchasing for my upcoming trip to Galapagos and want a good set up.i usually shoot stills so this is kinda new and any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Do you aim video light straight or is it best to angle like strobes so the light catches the subject at the edges of the beam. Is it the same process as strobes?

also anyone have reviews/ different options on following

backscatter tray and handle system?
locline flex arms?
FIT 2400 WSR Video lights?
flip 3.1 filters?

Many Thanks in advance.

US custom charges to UK?

15 May 2014 - 08:26 AM

Hey. Does anyone know the duty charges for buying items from USA and having them shipped to UK? I want an item from reef photo which is considerably cheaper than my local photography place but am worried once tax, duty shipping etc is inc would it be worth just buying it from Uk?

what are peoples experiences with this. The item is a Zen 25mm extension ring from Oly PT-EPxx housings to accommodate the oly 60mm macro lens in the Zen 45mm flat port.

Many thanks.

Extension ring for Zen 45mm panny/Leica flat port?

08 May 2014 - 09:59 AM

Hi. I currently own a Zen 45mm flat port for my pt-ep05l housing. I have the chance of buying a cheap 60mm oly macro lens. But it obviously doesn't fit.

I see reef photo website has a Zen 25mm extension ring which fits with the Zen 45mm flat port to
accommodate the 60mm but that is the only place I can see if for sale. Seems strange. Has anyone purchased this item in the UK. It doesn't appear on the Zen website either.

Many thanks.
