I did a quick glance through some of the forums but I dont see this question answered.
I got my new 7D Aquatica housing last year and for a bunch of reasons, havent gotten around to using it until this past week - which is also why I have been away from WP for a very long time (friendly advice: if you want to dive, dont run a dive center!).
Now, most of my underwater shooting is stills and that wont change. I have 2 Inon Z240 strobes that have lasted me a few years and are going strong. However, several times I see stuff I want to get as a video - either for putting on our dive center's website, for compiling into a DVD that we can sell to our customers or just for my own personal use.
So I'd like to get 1 or 2 video lights to affix to the housing - if 1 light, then on top, where the focus light would go. If 2 lights, then via a tray that attaches to the bottom of the housing. This going to be used with a Tok 10-17 fisheye lens.
If I am shooting something, I'd like to get good results. And if it goes well, I may get a dedicated video housing in the future.
So 2 questions:
1/ 1 or 2 lights? I dont think a single light will give enough coverage for a 10-17, correct?
2/ Recommendations - dont want top of the line, dont want junk. Would like to keep it at around $1000 or so, if that is realistic.
