Sola 800 photo light
The Sola 800 photo light from Light & Motion is the latest upgrade to the revolutionary SOLA lights. Simply better Still half the size of the competition, it produces more light than any focus light in its price range. Its wide flood doubles as a general video light for the new classes of camera with video capability and the red light lets you sneak up on the sealife.

Mating mandarin fish, taken with the Sola "red" light. The red light did not scare the otherwise shy mandarin fish, and actually allowed my Nikon 105mm lens to lock focus fairly quickly, even though it was after dark. Amazing! Photo by Scott Gietler
This very shy Scythe Butterfly fish was deep in a small cave. From a distance with my 105mm lens and Sola 800 red light, I was able to get a shot I was very happy with.
This Zebra Goby is extremely shy, and only lurks in very dark out of the way places. I switched from red light to white light to maximize my focus speed - since the red on red did not produce the best contrast, and the white light did not seem to affect the fish. This allowed my Nikon 105mm lens to focus as quickly and accurately as possible.
Still want to focus extremely fast but don't want to pay for the red light? Check out the Sola 500 photo light.
