The PV52T video light features 4 color modes including blue LEDs for fluorescence photography and videography. The primary white flood is 5000 lumens with a beam angle of 110 degrees.
These lights are quite powerful given their size and battery life. User replaceable on the fly without needing to recharge like other lights on the market. Dual O-ring sealed giving you extra protection underwater.
The PV52T is a great fill light, or primary given your budget and needs. Double them up and fill a frame greater than any standard dive light.

All Video and Photo lights from Scubalamp feature stepless dimming; hold the switch, and it will dim in increments of 10% until you reach your desired illumination. Press button again, and it will go back to a preset high or low mode.
The body is made from machined aluminum and solid glass front protects the LED from damage. Double O-ring sealed and user replaceable battery.
NOTE REGARDING LIGHT CIRCUITS and RATED OUTPUT:
All Scubalamp lights use constant current (continuous output) drivers; unlike other brands that use a variable output with 'Big' claims. What this means is that you will achieve full rated brightness until the battery reaches around 30%. Following, the light will dim to preserve the remaining battery life.
A light that does NOT use a constant current output driver will begin to dim almost immediately. It will continue to dim as the battery is depleted and the voltage drops. This means that a light rated at 2000 lumens, will only be around 1500 (or so) within the first few minutes. Buyer beware of large output claims for the rated batteries. This is one of the main reasons why we recommend our lights in addition to the durability and quality.
