Feed Back on FINN LIGHT:
On one cold weekend in January I went diving to Ojamo mine and I was so happy with the light. When I arrived to Ojamo, temperature was -20°C. I did two dives and it was proven again: Simpler things work better. I had Finnlight as well as two video lights with me. Both of the video lights started in surface but we had to swim to other end of the open water area under the ice before entering the mine and we were swimming in roughly 6 m depth whilst thermacline was in 20 m depth. Both videolights were inoperative when we entered the mine but FINNLIGHT was rocking like it was summer!!
On thing I like the lamp specifically is that is has nice defined angle of the beam but at the same time clear spot of bright light in the middle. This gives you good area of visibility but at the same time allows you to give good signals to your dive team with the bright spot in the middle. Absolutely good idea to use only one led and excellent reflector design!
