Sola 800 Photo Light

LIMITED QUANTITY AVAILABLE

Possibly the best focus light ever made

Product Overview:

The Sola 800 photo light from Light & Motion is the latest upgrade to the revolutionary SOLA lights.  Simply better and 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 sea-life.

Here is a quote from Bluewater Owner Scott Gietler: "The Sola photo 800 is one of the best focus lights that I"ve ever used. It is small, and ultra-easy to turn on, turn off and change power. The strength and beam angle are perfect for macro photography. You can not go wrong with this light."

** Please note: no mount is included with the Sola 800 Photo light, please select your mounting option from the drop down above. Thank you*

sola 800 photo light for underwater photography

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.
