Edge Mini Wasp v. 2 FIT 2400 or i-Torch Pro 6

Recommended Posts

I'm looking into a video light that I can use with my GoPro and also integrate into my Aquatica 7D rig. I've narrowed it down to the Mini Wasp v. 2x FIT 2400 (or i-Torch Pro 6, but for now I'm thinking of these as basically interchangeable).

 

Link to the Wasp info, since it seems this is the lesser known option: http://www.edgedivetech.com/miniwasp.html

 

I'm leaning towards the Wasp based on my needs. Here are the pros and cons I've considered.

 

In favor of Mini Wasp:

- fully adjustable knob for 1-100% (this is a big one for me, the ability to leave a light "off" at 1% then crank it up quickly with one twist to film means using it all day on one charge is much more realistic; I don't see myself fiddling with multiple button pushes on both lights every time I want to start recording with the FIT/iTorch, so realistically I'm recharging all the time between dives)

- slightly less expensive

- super-high build quality

- more even spread (or so I'm told)

- seems easier to integrate into my DSLR setup with strobes (e.g., centered over the housing, as opposed to having a video light and strobe on each arm)

- OLED display give battery life percentage

 

In favor of 2x FIT/iTorch

- higher lumen output (although the wider spread means the difference isn't as drastic, and I'm told the intensity drops off towards the edge more in these)

- smaller and lighter

- dual use as spot light (FIT)

 

Am I missing anything? Thoughts on which of these best suits my needs? Thanks in advance!

I just received 2 of the Mini-Wasps. Needed lights that would perform well below 100m, so these seem perfect. Haven't tried them underwater yet, but they are very bright and even.

How do you plan on mounting two of them? It seems like they are really designed to be used singly (since they have two ball mounts).

I'll post a pic soon. Initially planning to shoulder mount them to my rebreather for deep dives.
