  1. Hi all,

     

    My Bluefin monitor seems to be playing up.

     

    When plugging everything in, the monitor shows a pink colour and I can't work out why.

     

    I've attached a photo to show the colour, it is strange as some of the cameras icons are visible. I've tried my spare camera tray and have ruled out the cable as it occurs when using both.

     

    I'm using a Bluefin HC7 and a Sony hdr-hc7e video camera.

     

    Any help greatly appreciated.

     

    (I've submitted a query to Light & Motion three days ago and haven't heard anything yet)

     


  2. I once paid over £250 to insure my UW vid camera, travelled and dived all over the world on a 9 month trip with no incidents. On my way back home in LAX stopping from Fiji the bag the housing was in broke causing video housing and camera to fall out onto concrete- smash!

     

     

    on my return to UK I phoned insurance company and they wouldn't give me any money as I had not had the video camera serviced i.e. had any paperwork to say the setup wasn't broken when I got the insurance out.

     

     

    This was an expensive lesson to always read the small print!

  6. I have had some different experiences with L&M i delt with jim and trish in the past and had numerous things serviced and changed to a very high standard. I do however think that L&M do not stock old parts in an attempt to force you to buy their newer gear which is annoying. I bought a remote pro monitor from the US (I am in the UK and it was cheaper for me to buy it from the states) I had changed one in the past to PAL from NTSC at a small cost. I tried to get this done but they no longer stock any of parts. Also I wanted a base plate for a mako housing which i had lost, they no longer had this item in stock rendering the housing useless as i can't mount a video camera in the housing. for people who have stuck with L&M you would think they would keep parts or have the ability to make new ones!

     

    anyone want to buy a L&M remote pro monitor complete??


  7. hi i have a light & motion pro remote monitor, my problem is that i need a PAL monitor now i have changed my set-up, the remote monitor i have is NTSC, does anyone have a monitor pro/compact that is PAL or a monitor which is autoswitching (i think this is what the newer ones were) Light and motion have helpfully told me that i cannot get this one changed as they have run out of parts!?

     

    thanks for any help!

  8. I'm sure there are lots of people on here from the states so would have done a lot of diving in Hawaii, I'm from the Uk, i've spent 6 weeks in hawaii from july last year. I've also dived in Fiji, the fijian reefs are a lot more colourful but everyplace has its own unique element to it and i enjoyed some of the dives i did on the big island- did the manta dive and twilight dive. there are some interesting lava tubes on the north shore of oahu. good thing is in july the sea state is generally flat and so excellent for diving. compared to fiji there are so many turtles, i dived and snorkelled off kauai at the beach where the napali trail starts and saw about 25 turtles on one dive, amazing. also captain cook bay on big island is a place we went and saw lots of spinner dolphins which was fun. hope you manage to get some good dives in- once your out of honululu which is like any other large city it is a lovely place.


  9. The bricks for the SC-100 really didn't have much of a burn time. You might want to just go with the lights and pods meant for the Bluefin/HC-1

    Steve B)

     

     

    i wasn't going to use the small nuggets which were on the sc100 i was going to use the other style pods where i get 45 mins burn time or longer on my HID's and considering i can fit two batteries in each pod it gives me a superior burn time than the new pods. i just need a way of fitting them to the housing and wanted to see what the bluefin weight tray looked like.


  10. Hi guys and girls, I've just got a new Bluefin HC1. I used to use a sc100 mako and vx1000.

     

    basically i want to be able to use HIDs with the old style battery pods (the ones which take two batteries). I have an adaptor for these pods to put on a sc100 housing. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the weight tray light & motion looks like as i can't find any pictures of one and i'd like to see if i can use the weight tray to fix my battery pods with current adaptor to the bluefin housing.

     

    this would save me buying a new set of pods and many batteries when i already have a perfectly good set!

     

    i've attached two pics so you can see what i mean as i feel my explanation might be confusing!

     

    thanks for any advice....
