  1. I just got my new FA6500 v2 housing which comes with a vacuum safety system (awesome Fantasea!). I was using the original Fantasea FA6500 for about 2.5 years. I wanted to service my old one and also get a vacuum system, but it was cheap enough to just buy another one (and have a backup housing). I rely on the LEG trigger because Sony A6500/A6300 has no manual internal flash control and the recycle time is pants. Using the internal flash to trigger the strobes is ok if you take 30 pics on a dive, but useless for those situations when you're in a feeding frenzy of activity and need to take lots of shots in a short period of time to get a good one. I read that Fantasea are bringing out the FA-3 LED trigger which is compatible with the new housing, so far it is not available yet in Australia. Besides, I was bummed but the idea of having to spend another $300 for an item I already own that is now useless to me. At first it appears to fit, but when testing I noticed that the addition of the vaccum system inside the housing (when closed) is pushing against the LED trigger and moving the camera slightly forwards in the housing, which meant that some of the controls weren't working. Fortunately I had a spare FA-2 trigger that was giving me problems to experiment with. Fantasea had kindly send me a replacement a year or two ago because I think I just got one with a factory defect. I decided to try modifying the LED casing to make it fit. First I removed the electrics and sanded down the back, removing about 1mm of the plastic. This didn't work. So using blue-tak, I worked out where the vacuum valve was pushing against the trigger's casing. (Should have done this step first!) Turns out it is just above the on/off switch on the trigger. So using a carpet knife and sandpaper, I removed some more of the casing. After testing, I covered the hole with electrical tape to provide a barrier to dust and reseal it. Works perfectly now. FYI, you don't have to remove the electrics for this procedure, just remove the top cover.
  2. Looking for some possible advice. Ive got a fairly new (Feb 2018) housing with the fitted vacuum and leak detector. This worked perfectly for a few months but now i've got an issue. Basically, when i turn on the housing i get a blue flashing LED then it goes to constant red and stays there. According to the manual this is low battery but ive now tried 4 x 2450 batteries with the same result so the chances of a bad batch are likely remote. If i fiddle with it enough (remove, reinsert battery, turn it on/off, push, squeeze etc) for a few minutes then usually i can get it to behave itself and it works, shows vacuum and stays working normally until i next turn it off. Im confident there is no loss of vacuum or moisture (contacts are clean on the detector probe). The red comes in before even fitting the back. Any idea what i can do to troubleshoot or attempt to fix this issue as obviously having a known vacuum and working leak detection would be nice.
  3. For sale: Two Light & Motion Sola 2500 video lights. Both are in excellent condition mechanically and cosmetically. They come complete with ball mounts, chargers, manuals, and cases. Please note: These are the original Sola 2500 lights, with 90 degree flood beams. They are not the current model that also has a spot beam. Price is $260 each, or both for $500.
  4. 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
  5. We are not having shortage of super high-power LED lights, 10'000, even 20'000 lumens paired with wide coverage is available to the average videographer. However, who packs really high quality, warm LED-s in their video lights? The 4k era is not just about pixel-count, also about color. Representing the colors of the reef right, one needs the right light source. Reference on land: Soraa and their GaN LED-s. Anyone packing these for underwater use? Especially in warm (4500-5000K) version?
  6. Hello! I am looking for a new focus light, and I was curious if any of you had any info about the new lights on the market. I had initially planned on getting a sola, but with some of the new options out there, I am wondering if my money would be better spent elsewhere. I do like the idea of a wide beam light, since I would like to shoot some limited video using the light as well. Anyway, here are the lights I have been looking at, along with links to the manufacturers page... Sola Photo 1200 $699 http://www.lightandmotion.com/underwater/sola1200p.html 1200 lumens, 70 minutes on full power, nonswappable batteries, has spot and flood beam, built in red light This is tried and true, but I wish it had replaceable batteries so I could swap them out after a few dives rather than having to recharge. Fix Neo 2000 Dx $749 http://www.fisheye-jp.com/english/products/light/fe_neo/index.html Light has removable batteries, digital readout of minutes of light remaining at any given power level, 100% variable output level, beam about 100 degrees, 60 min run time at 2000 lumens, available flip filter adapter to change color temp of light and switch to red, light is pretty blue, spare batteries are available but expensive (but not as much as RGBlue) I really like the techy feel of the fix neo, and although it's not really needed, I do like the LCD saying "you have x minutes of light remaining." Replacement batteries are available, too, but they are also expensive - just not quite as expensive as the RGBlue. The color temp of this light looks very blue-white, which may or may not matter that much. I do like the clip on flip adapter for the red or warmer light filters RGBlue System01 $750 http://www.rgblue.jp/en/products/system01/ high CRI light with natural light color, single plane light emission to eliminate "multi-shadow effect," 100 degree beam, up to 2200 lumens (1-100% power adjustable), replaceable batteries (expensive!), only 35 minutes burn time at full power, but 50 minutes at 1800 lumens, can use a condenser to have 60 degree beam, or attach a red light filter for red I really like the shadow control and natural light appearance of the RGBlue, but I am concerned about the abysmal battery life - though I understand the reason for the low battery life, and might be willing to accept it. Of course, replacement batteries are painfully expensive. i-Torch Video Pro6 $599 http://www.itorch.ca/i-torch-video-pro6.html Light has 2400 lumens, runs on removable 36250 li-ion batteries (much cheaper to keep spares on hand!), 60 minute burn time on full, has built in white/red/UV LEDs, 3 levels of white, 2 levels red, 1 level UV, 120 degree beam angle, color indicator of remaining battery life on switch This is a lot cheaper, but it lacks the 1-100% adjustable light level (which I like, in theory - my prior lights never had this feature). I don't really know anything about i-Torch as a brand. I like the cheap replaceable batteries. I like the red and UV light being built in! FIT 2400 LED WSR (White/Spot/Red) $420 http://www.fun-in.com.tw/oc/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=1696 (not the manufacturer link - couldn't find this one) http://www.fun-in.com.tw/share/documents/fit/UwP73_FIT_LED2400.pdf (review at UWP mag) most wallet friendly! 2400 lumens, 120 degree flood or 15 degree spot, red and white lights built in - can run both at same time to adjust color temp, 60 minutes burn time on full, uses cheap replaceable batteries, battery life indicator on switch or FIT 2400 UV version $600 http://www.fun-in.com.tw/oc/index.php?route=product/product&path=95_30_199&product_id=1689 essentially the same as the WSR above, except it can do white, red, purple, and UV light - not sure if it still has a spot mode or not, 2400 White / 200 Red / 6W Purple / 10W UV Seems to be very similar to the i-Torch as far as advantages - multiple light sources in 1 body, with cheap user replaceable batteries. The UV version of the FIT seems like a good comparison to the i-Torch So...any thoughts on these lights from you guys? I am somewhat leaning towards the i-Torch or the FIT lights, since they have cheap replaceable batteries, and they are cheaper overall than the Sola, Fix, or RGBlue. That said, each of the more expensive lights have some good things going for them, too. Please help!
  7. Two mangrove light sets, 2 lights, 2 chargers and 2 spare batteries (one spare battery doesn't work but can be rebuilt for half the price of a new spare battery) The lights are intended as video lights primarily but also comes with a handle so they can be used as handheld dive lights. $700 plus actual shipping for the lot. (only shipping in the US) They are very powerful at 4320 lumens. They are LEDs so there is no bulb to burn out. Info from the website: Mangrove´s new line of LED lights are an industry breakthrough. The VC-4L6 specially designed for underwater video and photo is supplied with one Solid-State LED module array emitting a staggering 4320 lumens each! Featuring two output levels, the 40W light can dim from high to medium power output levels allowing you to dim lighting for a quick exposure adjustment. The VC-4L6 offers daylight color temperature, a 16:9 illumination pattern (approx. 110° reflected beam angle) and output about the same as a 130 W halogen light. All of this in a self contained package with relatively low heat generation, low power consumption, and amazingly long burn time make the VC-4L6 the ideal small high performance video light system. Technical details: Battery pack rated 3900 mAh Burn time is 65 min @ 100% and 5:00 hrs. @ 60% Recharging time is 5 hours + 40 min. Light Source: 6x Slim type LED array Power consumption: 6 x 6.5W Luminous Flux (Lumen): 4320 lm Beam angle: 120x130º Colour temperature: 5000º Kelvin Colour rendering index (CRI): 95 Output levels: 100-60%. Optional hand grip available for use as a normal diving light. Charging time: 5:40 h Depth rated to 200m/660 feet Dimensions: Diameter: 77/60 mm Length: 233 mm Weight: 1228g (land) / 480g (water)
  8. I have a pair of Light & Motion Sola 4000 LED lights for sale. I have used these lights on both Aquatica DSLR and Amphibico video housings. I used it on an Aquatica 5DII and D800 housing and on the Amphibico Rouge housing. One light is a little over a year old but only has about 75 dives on it. The other is a year older. You can see the difference in the Aluminum anodize, but both work identically. Both hold a good charge, I have rarely run them completely down on a typical macro dive. I also am including 4 chargers though only two are in the photo. I also have the covers and bags for the lights. They each have an Ultralight ball attached. Retail was just under $3000. Will sell the lot for $1500 including ground shipping anywhere in the US. PayPal OK. The lights are located in the US and ready for shipping.
  9. Two led lights, 3500 lumen, one hour operating time at max power. 115° light beam. Stepless power control. Perfect condition. Few recharge cycles, battery still in full condition. 900€ both. Full album here: http://imgur.com/a/xfWT9
  10. 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?
  11. Light and Motion SunRay 2000 LED lights 2x light and motion LED lights 2x L&M battery pods 4x L&M batterys 2x L&M chargers This allows you to have a set on charge while you are diving the other set. They have 1" balls on them for attaching to an arm system All in good working order. Please respond to dtreid@gmail.com as I do not monitor the forums daily $995 plus shipping See review: http://www.kenstone.net/fcp_homepage/light_motion_sunray_douglas.html
  12. 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.

  13. Hi all, DISCLAIMER: I do not work for Fisheye nor I get these light for free nor I got some discount. It's a new product, I was one of the first to receive these lights and I wanted to share my opinion on them. I hope you will appreciate this mini review of my new lights Few weeks ago I finally received my brand new FIX Aquavolt3500 video lights from Fisheye Japan. They are self-contained led lights and as their name suggests they have a 3500 lumen output. The light beam covers 115° with an even flux without spots and they guarantee one hour of operating time at maximum power. For a complete data sheet just look at the manufacturer web site. http://www.fisheye-j...3500/index.html I’m not an unboxing lover but I think it is worth a photo showing the carefulness of the packaging. The light kit is composed of the light itself, a small charger with a peculiar base for the battery (I will be back on this shortly), a handle, a 3300mA Lithium battery with two caps, a spare o-ring kit and a tin can of silicone grease. My kit arrived with a Sea&Sea joint which I substituted with a ball joint for my Nauticam arms. I think that you can specify the joint type while ordering. The Aquavolt3500 is entirely built in aluminum alloy with a front mineral glass. The light body has a classic screw type opening with double o-ring. I shot a photo near a 1/2L Coca Cola bottle to give you an idea of their dimensions. Weigh in water is only 290gr. The back of the light has an LCD display which gives information on the power setting, residual battery life and its internal temperature: if the light reaches 68°C it shut down automatically. The user manual specifies that it cannot be used out of water. Near the display there is a knob with a central button. A finger pressure of a couple of seconds turns on the light at the maximum power. Following presses change the power at 80-50-30%. You turn off the light pressing the knob for three seconds. Power output can be regulated also rotating the knob with a 2% steps. This feature is aimed to macro photography. You can finely tune the exposure just rotating the knob. On the left of the knob there is an over-pressure valve and on top of the display something like a cap: user manual states that they can be remotely controlled. Maybe Fisheye has some special accessory for this feature. The custom Lithium battery is worth describing. Electrical contacts on both sides are circular shaped: you can insert the battery into the light or into the charger without paying attention at polarity or position. The battery charger has a custom base with 4 led indicating the ongoing charge (max 3 hours). Inserting the battery into the base without power supply you can check the remaining battery charge through the same 4 led. The battery itself has an extra electrical connection identical to the main charger allowing to be charged without using the base. Continue on next post...
