I’m So Excited, I Just Can’t Hide It, I’m About To Use A Light & Motion Sola 600 Underwater Light And I Think I’ll Like It!

This past spring Light & Motion released their new Sola 600 compact imaging light. From compact cameras to DSLRs to video housings, the Sola 600 is the perfect companion for all of these underwater imaging platforms. The Sola packs a blinding 679 lumens of light for 75 minutes with a clean even beam pattern and also delivers 225 lumens of red light for close-up work at night.

I got my first glimpse of this remarkable feather weight light at the Tacoma Dive & Travel Show last May and was immediately impressed.  Though tiny in size,  the Sola 600 compact imaging light has already set a new standard for a powerful, easy-to-use light for both underwater photographers and videographers.  As a video light, the custom reflectors provide a remarkably even 75 degree beam. The magnetic bump switch takes a light tap to adjust white light levels or to switch to red light (the only compact imaging light that offers red light allowing you to focus without scaring your marine subjects). Pressure tested and factory sealed, the Sola never needs to be opened and recharges in 2.5 hours with exposed gold-plated plugs in the rear of the body. The light also features a charge status indicator to help the owner to manage the battery life across multiple dives.

I will be doing several product reviews on this amazing light once Light & Motion delivers one to me.  I can’t wait!
