Video lights for 7D housing

28 October 2010 - 08:10 AM

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.

TIA,
Vandit

FS: Aquatica A20 housing

13 August 2010 - 03:35 AM

I am selling my Aquatica A20 housing for the Canon 20D. I will include 2 Canon 20D bodies with it. The housing has been freshly serviced by Scubacam in Singapore and new strobe posts installed.

Reason for sale - have upgraded to the 7D housing.

This is for the housing only. No ports. I can toss in a few TLC arms if you want.

Please email me at vkalia at diveindia dot com if interested.

Thanks,
Vandit
