I used this video light with my Sony NEX-5N and the color and light balance was terrific. For snorkeling it was the perfect light for under a rock shelf or on a cloudy day. Long life rechargeable battery, never failed during a dive. This may also be used on its own as a hand torch if you should have the need of one. Highly recommended.

I recently purchased 2 x sola 1200 video lights for my DSLR setup. The lights are lightweight and compact which was great for travel. I used them for both video and also a focus light which worked very well. I also got the ball adaptor so they could be attached to my ultralight arms so i could remove my strobes and place the sola's on instead. Very easy to use underwater too.

I found i need to charge them probably after every 2 dives if i was using them for video. I found I needed to set them to full power for video, which makes me think that 3 x sola's may have been better.

The guys at Bluewater were very helpful with my order which arrived promptly to Australia during the Christmas rush hour.

thanks Bluewater!

This is a great light. I use it as a focus light on my dslr. It really helps my lens focus faster. I consider it a must in low viz, low light water to have a good focus light. It's so light and small I don't notice it. The charge lasts for 3 dives on low power which is all I need for a focus light. It also comes in handy as a dive light when I want to look under a ledge or into a cave. You can't go wrong with this light.

Excellent dual usage for video / diving light

Extremely compact, I use it either as video lamp or as main diving light.
I like it really a lot, and fully recommand.
The hand strap is not that useful in practice.
May be L&M should consider an intermediate between 1200 and 4000 lumen.
Perfect service from Blue Water. ( I ordered from Europe, picked up in US while on a trip).

I really like this light its built like a tank, I primarily needed a focus light, but the Blue Water Guys steered me to this direction. Now, its purposed is three-folds. A focus light; A dive-light and I use it for UW Video as well. I brought it to the philippines for 2 weeks of diving and it never failed. charging was quick and easy.
