  1. So I'm looking to purchase some high power video lights for filming underwater but wanted to get feedback from people that may have used these in the field. or just any advice in general on this subject. I am fairly new to the lighting world underwater, and I have checkout many brands and there are a lot of options. My first thought was going with Light and Motion and get two Sola 2100 lights they run about $600 a pop have a spot and flood feature (which coming from the commercial and film world I like that option) and they are small. But as I shopped around I started noticing there are much brighter lights that pack more of a punch and I would rather spend the money now and get a light that offers more lumens than I can use for many application. Give or take 1600 lumens is roughly equivalent to a 100w incandescent bulb in terms of light output. I would want a light bright enough to give me some fill on even say a shark in mid day to bring back color and depending on your settings you can play around with your background a little more in terms of exposure. But the big question based on my experience with my Nikonos SB105 strobes and a small 600 lumen video light ( which didnt light anything during the day) Is there a Led video light that can provide roughly the same amount as a basic flash during the day like the Nikonos SB105. I looked at the following units. -Sola 4000 it gives 4000 lumens blue light, has3 output options and 80 degree beam and the battery last for 50mins at high out but for 2 its is a crazy $3000 dollars -I torch Video Pro 7 offer 5000 lumens 120 degree angel beam, last 1 hour at full output, has 5 output modes and has 2 levels of red light which im not sure what that is for. cost $800 each -Fisheye Fix led Aquavolt 5000 which is 5000 Lumens, 120 degree beam, dims, last 75min high power cost $1200 each but is now dis continued Long story short I am not sure where to look or start now, and I have read that even though it says it offer 4000 or 5000 lumens sometimes they are less. So let the chat begin what lights do you guys use? why have they worked best for you? Thanks for all the help and feedback in advance I am excited to learn some new stuff about lighting.
  2. I am including a set of flip up/down (optional but included) fluorescence filters for those that want to give that variety of diving a try. There is a slight variation to the 2 filters and change be accomplished, underwater quickly for variety if desired. Also included is a warming filter. VL-5800P Li ion Rechargeable Battery High Power LED Video Light The Bigblue VL-5800P LED Aluminum Video Light System delivers a stunning 5,800 lumens light output through 10 pieces of XML LED, and an 120 degree perfectly even light spot. The 6500K white light reflects the true vibrant colors of the surrounding while diving. The light built-in 6 pieces Red LED to enhance focusing performance. 4 levels of brightness, Red color and SOS controlled by a reliable push button with battery indicator. The 18650 rechargeable Li-ion battery pack comes with a smart charger enabling you to charge the battery in a few hours. The 4 steps power adjustment lets you choose between four output levels - IV at 100%, III at 50% , III at 25% or I at 10% extending the burn time and reducing reflections at close range. Replaceable 18650 Li ion rechargeable battery pack. VL-5800P ( come with ball joint and plate with glove for handheld purpose) Presently, I have their YS attachment(optional) connected and included. The ball mounts have never been removed from bag. I am selling 2 separate set ups. I am including caps to protect lens during travel. Both in very good condition with original packaging. $265 each Thank you for your consideration.
  3. Recently purchased these off this forum and unfortunately they were misrepresented as I believed them to be the newest CRI model. If I shot mostly warm water the Flux would be just fine and would do an excellent job filling out the shadows. They 2.5 years old and now have 6 dives on them. I did a check on the batteries and they are still in excellent condition and the lights are in excellent condition too. I paid $2400 USD + $100 shipping for the lights two weeks ago and would be looking to get $2175 for these lights as I would prefer the CRI model for cold water. You can generally pick up a pair of these new or used for around $1350 - $1600 each. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I have validated all the specs with Backscatter where they were originally purchased. Looking for a quicker sale as I am heading on an extended trip on Alaska coast at the end of month and would like to get CRI versions for that trip. I will accept Paypal Only. Package comes with: - 2X Keldan Luna 8 Lights - 2X Keldan Luna 8 Batteries - 2X Keldan Luna 8 Ball Clamps - 2X Keldan Luna 8 Chargers I took them for a test dive and you can find the cold water footage here. The wide angle shots are these lights with auto white balance so they do render a very beautiful even beam and colour. The close up of the shrimp is focus light only and a test shot only. -
  4. I have two Sola 1200 video lights for sale. In excellent condition, with ULCS ball mounts. They work perfectly. 3 power settings in both wide and spot mode. A/C charging cables, padded bags included for both lights; one is boxed. $300/each, $550 for both. US shipping only, via UPS. Contact Russell: rascal66 at earthlink dot net
  5. Light and Motion Stingray Plus Camera and housing, plus 2 that's right, 2 Sony HDR XR-200 cameras, Light and Motion all aluminum housing, arms and lights, to include 4 fish eye lights (2 1000lm and 2 500lm) 3 additional replacement handles, 4 o-ring kits, 2 sets of handle batteries, 2 chargers with extended battery, battery is good for 4 dives, carrying suitcase with dividers, optional go pro or utility top mount (quick connect) and all manuals. Used less than 100 dives. Asking $800 for all included obo, plus shipping. I live in a VA if interested in pick up. I accept all major credit cards as well. I'm looking at upgrading but otherwise an awesome camera set up. All you see here is included, suitcase is a great way to customize, it's light and secure. I can send sample video upon request and can be reached at dbuky1@gmail.com if you prefer. Great for the diver that wants to get into videography with all manual control capabilities. $3500 plus invested in to this whole set up, but I need to get rid as I want to upgrade to a much much larger system. ​HDR storage is 250 gig! I spent 3 weeks in Micronesia and didn't even fill the driver. Sony compresses the files well and allows for mass storage. There is also the option to add a memory card for additional storage. ​Great housing with only one port to seal. It is double sealed O rings and leaves the worry of flooding on the surface. All aluminum housing and infared controls make for ease of operation. Built in flip down red filter and you're in business. Please let me know if you have any questions, all serious offers will be considered. Thanks
  6. Hi there, I purchased this Sidewinder 360 Package a few years ago and only used it a couple of times. I took a look at it today and I realized that the scratch guard on the glass for the panning camera has never been removed! I upgraded the monitor and the umbilical in my package when I purchased it so it comes with the full 300' of umbilical and a 10.4" LCD "photo frame" monitor. The battery has lost it's charge in the past few years but the charger is fine and you can pick up a new 12V SLA battery for ~$20 online. It also can be sued with the included "cigarette lighter" adapters so the battery isn't really necessary. The case is a heavy duty roller Pelican and is airtight with a relief valve, waterproof, floats, and has four handles including an extendable handle when you want to roll it behind you. The camera itself is awesome and you can toggle between bottom-looking and panning whenever you wish. Both camera's have their own LED lights, the panning camera has more but both are really powerful. If you want to investigate what is on the bottom or swimming over it before you get wet this is the system for you! I paid $2099 US, I'm asking $1250 plus shipping costs but I will take any reasonable offer. Thanks for looking and here is what SeaViewDiving has to say about the non-upgraded Sidewinder 360 Explorer Pack, the upgrades were custom requests direct from SplashCam at the time: The Explorer Package is a complete underwater viewing system, which includes a 7 inch LCD monitor, rechargeable battery and a Pelican case. Camera Head Camera Control Unit 100, 200 & 290 ft. Umbilical Cable Cigarette Lighter Power Adapter AC/DC Power Adapter 6ft Male to Male Video Patch Cable Drift Stabilizer Fin Cable Clamp 7" Color LCD Monitor w/ Sunshade 12V 7.5AH Rechargeable Battery w/ Charger Pelican Brand Case
  7. I'm not getting on very well using arms with clamps for video. They drive me a bit mad. So I'm considering "bendy arm" solutions again. I've used Locline arms in the past but it creaked so loudly, disturbing both marine life and my fellow divers. I've also made DIY light arms out of plastic Gorillapod, but all the joints gradually went floppy. Has anyone used strong, chunky Locline that doesn't creak or flop? If so, exactly what was the spec and where did you get it? Any other clever solutions for bendy light arms? (I'm using Keldan Luna 4X now but might change to something smaller and lighter for macro)
  8. Selling my two Aquavolt 7000 lights because I need canister-style lights, instead. I'm the original owner and purchased these new about a year ago. I've used them on about 20 dives and kept the batteries well-maintained. Each light comes with all original parts: case, manual, battery, charger, etc. There are some light scratches around the edges, which are pretty hard to avoid when you have to hand your camera to someone as you climb back aboard a busy boat, but overall they're in excellent condition. I've had no problems with them at all. They retail for $1999. I'm selling for $1500 each or $2800 for both, plus shipping. Here are two examples of me using them for macro and wide angle in dark water.
  9. Two ikelite strobes, used less than a handful of times and only once in salt water. Had these with my Ikelite housing, which I also recently sold. These lights are amazing. I paid >$2500 new for these. Asking $1600 for the pair. They come with one dual cable, one single cable, both arms (as shown in the photos), and 2 battery chargers. Buyer will pay shipping and insurance (cost will depend on location).
  10. UK Lighting Package. $95 2 HID Light Cannon 100 bodies. One has a wrist lanyard, the other has a heavy duty brass post clip. Both lights/ heads/ bulbs functional. Optional diffusers included for photography/ videography lighting. Manual included. 1 C8 Xenon body. Functioning bulb in head. 2 replacement bulbs in unopened packages. 2 extra reflectors. 3 spring plates. These go in the light if you are using 8 C cell batteries to power each light. 2 UK rechargeable battery CHARGERS. Note, this package does not include batteries, rechargeable or otherwise. You will need to supply your own batteries, either 8 C cells each or the UK rechargeable battery pack. Versatile dive light package allowing photography/ videography, day and night diving, interchangeable parts. The HID bulbs themselves retail for over $80 apiece, so this whole package, three complete lights, is a steal at $95. Buyer please be willing to cover shipping/ insurance. Please contact me at the555@mindspring.com with questions. Thank you for your interest.
  11. This Amphibico Phenom electronic housing is designed for the Sony Z1U & FX1 HDV camcorders. It has a plexiglass dome port that is in good shape. The HID lights are adjustable between 35 & 50 watts and the battery pack comes with two functional lithium Ion batteries. I don't know if Amphibico is still supporting this kit anymore with o-rings and screws, etc. The removeable diffuser on one of the lights is cracked, but it doesn't effect the light. The housing has some paint chipping on the belly and on the sides. I used this kit for a couple of wildlife documentaries, but it has been a couple of years since it has been in the water. Both the housing and the lights come with Pelican cases. I am asking $950 for the whole kit or best offer. Shipping costs are separate. Feel free to contact me if you'd like to ask questions or would like to take a tour of it via Skype. It is located in Portland, Oregon, and I'd prefer to ship within the United States. Thanks! Rob

  14. I really want new lamps for my DSLR based video rig (Panasonic GH3 in Nauticam housing) but fint it difficult to find a good Product to invest in. My current video lights are the Patima Redshark PL-2700W (2700 lumens). I really want something in the 5-10 000 lumen range, preferably LED based and no external cannister. The L&M Sola 4000 and FIX Aquabolt 7000 is perhaps closest to my vision, but the Sola 4000 might not have enough output and my main concern about the Aquabolt 7000 is the inconsistent color temperature which seems to change a lot with the output power. On the cheaper high output side you have the Archon 100W LED light, but this "chinese" light seem to get mixed reviews. Also the output seems to not be the 10 000 lumens stated. Also not possible to dim the light in an incremental fashion. My light budget is arround 3000-3500 USD total. Any suggestions or recomendations for products to look into?
  15. These lights make L&M's LED lights look like toys. The lights have been used for a total burning time of not more than 40 hours and are in full working condition. Only the black color on the anodized aluminum shaft is fading a bit. I have 6 used units for sale. This light sells online for USD 800 - 950 per piece. I prefer to sell it in pairs, therefore I'm offering it for USD 1100 a pair. Each light includes 1 Battery, 1 Charger. I also do have used, but in good condition spare batteries which I'm selling for USD 60 each. All the items are in Malaysia and actual courier service costs and any customs taxes from your country will be on you. Please be aware that the shipping weight for two sets will be around 4,5 kg. Unless requested I won't ship the cheap aluminum box that came originally with the lights as they would add another 1kg per box. Any questions and inquiries please email directly to editor@treasure-images.com. Thank you.

  19. Hello everyone, Anybody know witch is the best underwater lightning equipments at this time ? I shoot with a phenom FXZ1 and looking for great lights ! Thanks
  20. For those shooting video with a DSLR, I have a question: When shooting wide angle with lights, should I be doing a manual white balance? Or leaving on Auto WB? I have 2 sola 4000's In the past I have always just used available light, and manually white balanced off of a slate or the sand. If I am using a magic filter, I am assuming, that I would not ever want to use lights. Thanks in advance, Dustin
