Hi All, Have been checking the forum for a little while.
Long time diver but still new to the dive light arena.
My first real project involved fiber optics and selective lighting techniques for uw photography about 2 years ago.
Lots of fun and experimentation on the lounge room floor with a rubber ducky. I got the setup underwater and enjoyed the results.
My second project was a hid to led canister light mod and inspired by another forum member.
I'd rather not embarrass the individual by name but the mod was something I had been thinking of for some time.
He wrote about it on a local dive forum and included so much info it was hard not to follow in his tracks.
Have been thinking about upgrading the cree's to the latest and greatest.
Went on a slightly different focus with the project which was more for an uw photography focus light rather than the
main torch. I used warmer leds and wide optics and have mounted the light head to the camera. While it still has some disadvantages including an umbilical, the burn time and light intensity is fantastic especially when compared to the costs and burn of off the shelf products.
My main reason for joining was to post a topic/question yesterday about a light I am interested in as an alternative to the canister light mentioned above.
