On my most recent trip, my main focus was not on shooting video – it was being there for my dive buddy – a brand new diver. So, I did several dives without a camera and didn’t have my camera on the very best dive of the trip. But I still managed to get a few cool shots.
My first impression when seeing the Kraken 10,000 lumen Solar Flare Max underwater video light was how nicely crafted they are. The light is incredibly durable with metal construction and a strong glass dome for the LED lights that spreads the light underwater. It also comes with a neoprene cover for the dome and nice soft carrying case – similar to a camera bag. I was on a “roughing it” type live-aboard with no accommodations for camera gear. So having such large and heavy lights along was challenging. But the Solar Flare lights provided such beautiful illumination that it was worth the struggles.
