Equinox Features

  • Equinox's high output 2 x 30W LED system delivers 2 x 1,000 lumens and an 85 degree perfectly even light spot, making it a must for the best video shooting results.
  • Each light utilizes a unique single chip 1 x 30W LED; ultra compact and highly energy efficient, it guarantees a burn time of 50,000 hours, reducing the need for frequent replacement of the bulb.
  • The 6500K white light reflects the true vibrant colors of the surrounding while diving.
  • The 12V 2.3Ah rechargeable Ni-MH battery pack comes with a smart charger, featuring a Hi-Lo switch, enabling you to quick-charge the battery pack in an hour.
  • The Hi-Lo Power Output lets you choose between two output levels, Hi at 100% or Lo at 70%, extending the burn time and reducing reflections on objects at close range.
  • The Slider Magnetic Switch provides ease when switching between the Hi-Lo power output levels and is designed to be insulated from all internal parts, eliminating the risk of leakage.
  • The thermal protection system prevents the light from overheating by automatically cutting off its power in cases of prolonged use on land, or exposure to temperatures above 70°C. As soon as the light cools off, the power comes back on.

Top quality prtice - a market killer !!!


from france  -  Photo Enthusiast

am very happy with the BigBlue VL 2x30W LED Aluminum Video Light System. It shows perfection in all of the details. The products is very well finished, the quality of the aluminium (T6061=high grade, precision machined) is great, the lights also and even you can find some tape on staple for the spare parts… The two light heads deliver 1,000 lumens light output each (as per indicated in the doc), anyway I don't know how to measure it but I am sure that is the same for all the others products. With the 2 I have, I have 2000 lumens of perfectly spread beautiful white light. The LED light heads are so compact that you may found it even too "little", specially when compared to the cylindrical batteries but these are just normal. I have also ordered a set of lightweight arms with rotating balls all in the same quality of aluminium and these are just perfect. I have followed advices found in the forum 1x8" + 1x5" and this seems a very good and flexible combinaison... I am used to dive with a camera and I will have to be used to dive with camera, arms, lights and batteries… I think that nearly I won't need any weight everything will be in the camera lights and housing. Overall, the design and the manufacturing quality of this system is excellent! These lights offer beautiful, evenly spread white light. The manufacturer claims 6500K (I did not test this value specifically, but I believe it). I could see how white and evenly distributed the lights are during the swimming pool tests. To show this in u/w operation, I offer you test clips at vimeo 8511168 Just notice 2 points for this little intro : - I haven't used any filter and this is true that lighting is fully operational in a few meter range and therefore I need to use some color correction to have color natural but I must admit that the lights helped a lot for the color correction as I previously tried to shoot without lighting and when color is gone no more options to have them back (except if you are an artist or a pro of imaging!) - Oman water is really really green with lots of particles which of course reduce the quantity of light available due to distorsion… Last point,the support that I got from the manufacturer is just excellent : advices, send updated design parts for free!!! Well nothing compared to a certain brand of housing that I unfortunately use and that I won't recommend specially for Canon Cams HVxx!!!
