Hi,

I thought people on this board would be intersted in this little video. It's covers some cave we dived in florida, but of more interst here are the lights used.

Primaries are mostly MR11 XM-L tripples, running at 2400ma, with 1-2 glipses of an XPG triple.

Video lights are the handheld DIY ones that I made, 9 * XMLs @ 6600ma (no optic).

nice video!


Which optic is used for the XM-L tripple

We were using the 9.5 degree ledlil optic, which is wider than that in reality though.

Best examples are at the following times 0:28, 2:19 and 2:24 (left).

Excellent video. Almost makes me think I could do it... NOT!

Lighting works very well. Not National Geographic, but it seems more intimate, more personal. Great job!

Yes, buddies are awesome. Can't underestimate how critical they are.
