This Nocturnal Lights SLX 800xi Video Light consists of 1 SLX 800xi Light Head. The light has three 3W (9W total) LED bulbs that provide 800 lumens of light . Twelve (12) alkaline AA batteries power the light for 16 hours of burn time, with a maximum output for 4.5 hours. The LED bulbs run at a cool temperature, so the light can be used above and below the surface.
The 12 AA battery configuration provides low weight and a compact size. The light comes standard with a removable lantern handle. The lantern handle has a 5/16" (8mm) hole that can be used to attach the included Hybrid Adapter Adapter. This adapter allows you to connect the light to both a 1" ball arm system, or arms that use a YS mount.
Lights are extremely important for your underwater imaging system. The ocean is one big, blue filter. As you descend, the reds and oranges quickly become muted shades of blue and gray. Shining a color-corrected light source on your subject will bring back your subjects' natural color. The SLX 800xi with its daylight-balanced 5500° K LED bulbs is the perfect light for this purpose.
The 60° internal diffusers are installed on the light, internal 12° reflectors, and the 90° adapters are included. The aluminum housing along with the double O-ring seal and shockproof LEDs makes the SLX 800xi extremely durable even under the most extreme conditions. You never have to worry about the light turning on in your dive bag because of the switch lock. All of these features make the Nocturnal Lights SLX 800xi a practical and convenient light for all your imaging applications.
