Let There Be Light II

Went out on the stormy, dark, heaving seas and jumped in the water last night.  Usually when I’m rolling around at night in the rain on a boat abandoning ship is the last thing on my mind.  Obviously for night diving, a good light is key and I can’t help but sing the praises of Keldan dive lights again.  I took one video light last night and it transformed a dark and scary world into a warm halo of undersea amazingness.  The diffuser cap that Keldan uses is genius and, besides being strangely gratifying to hold, it casts a nice even flood without hotspots or dim areas.  The light is color-balanced perfectly and took the guess work out of trying to get good colors.  One of the best things about this light is the super-accurate battery level indicator.  I alwasys knew exactly how much light I had left.  I’ve owned this particular light for two years and have charged and discharged it countless times.  It still reads perfectly and the quality of light does not change as the battery wears down.  It also shows you the battery level while you’re charging it which is handy when you’re in a hurry.  The only problem with the light in fact was that it’s balanced so closely to natural daylight that it attracted all sorts of small organisms (the other 4 lights did not) which interfered a little with the filming.  Small price to pay to be able to capture the night-time activities of this little Burr Fish.  Cool.
