    Diving Gulf of Mexico c. 130 ft, need light for GP but not sure where to start.
    I'm no pro and not sure how far i'll get into the GP world
    Any suggestions for a place to start for a light that'll mount well with GP?

    Anyone know much about Fenix SD11?

    You might also take a look at our modular GP Tray system. With lights and arms and a solid tray, you will be able to get good color and clarity at depth.

    You should avoid using a normal dive light as a video light because the beam is too focused and you will not get the necessary coverage and the illuminated area will be over-exposed - relative to the remainder of the scene. These lights are wide angle with good coverage and no rings or hot spots.

    I struggled with this decision as well. Establish a cost range and then go from there. Also decide what type of battery you want to power the light. My first lights were all 18650 then I started changing over to 26650 Lithium lights. I have used the BigBlue BLACK MOLLY 3 AL2600XWP on several dives and I'm very impressed this light.
