    I have owned a sola 1200 dive light since 2011 and have very much enjoyed the light. I have recently purchased a hero 3 and was planning on purchasing a second sola so I can start with underwater photography/videography. When searching through L&M website & products I noticed that they had separate sola 1200s for diving: dive light, photography, videography. What is the difference? Would your recommendations be to get another of the exact light I have? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hello NYCDiveGuy,
    The Sola 1200 Dive light will work great with the GoPro Hero3. It is functionally the same as the 1200 Video light, so with the correct mount and tray, it will work perfectly to take video with. A second Video 1200 or Dive 1200 would add fill light to your rig, improving the overall quality of the video you get.

    Love our twin 1200's but the 2000's new pricing makes those soooo tempting!!!
