Sola 3800 Pro Video Light
The Light and Motion Sola 3800 Pro Video Light is a compact and powerful video light with a floodlight beam. 110° beam means all of the light is evenly distributed over the entire scene with no hot spot in the centre and the light gently fades around the edges for subtle lighting.
Who's the 3800 For?
The 3800 is a powerful video light for photographers and videographers who want to bring light and colour back to their pictures at depth. Flexible mounting options mean that you can mount the light on a range of mountings and power indicators on both sides of the body mean you know what the light is set to wherever it's mounted.
The Sola Range also allows for Various Mounting Options.
- 3800 lumen flood output certified to the FL-1 Standard
- Regulated output ensures light does not dim in use; custom firmware keeps lumens consistent
- 110º flood beam (measured underwater) designed for wide-angle video
- Custom optics produce a clean beam void of distracting hot spots
- Innovative dome port diffuses beam and provides gentle light fall-off at edges for enhanced video
- Coloured Status LED dashboard is found on the side of light to be easily seen when using housing arms
- Factory sealed body ensures flood-free performance and long-term reliability
- Full recharge in 1 hr 45 min with exclusive FC (Fast Charge) technology
- Travel-friendly design with minimal weight or bulk approved for carry-on and check-in luggage
- Includes Ball mount, optional Loc-Line, and YS available

|Battery Level Indicator|
?Some torches come fitted with a battery level indicator so you know how much power you have left. Most are a colour coded light that gives you a rough idea of how much power you have left but some will estimate your remaining time in minutes.Close.
?Torches require a power source and either have a built in rechargeable battery, removable rechargeable battery or a standard size disposable battery.Close.
|Built in, Rechargeable, Li-Ion|
?Narrow beams are great for cutting through low visibility, helping a diver to see further without creating backscatter from the light reflecting off particles in the water. Narrow beams are able to penetrate further and are ideal for looking in openings or under rocks Wide angle beams are best for good visibility and spread the light over a larger area. A larger lit area means that the torch does not have to be continuous moved and are particularly effective on night divesClose.
?Advances in bulb technology has created a number of different options for light source, each with their own advantages and disadvantage but most today are LEDs. LED - unlike ordinary incandescent bulbs, Light Emitting Diodes don't have a filament that will burn out, and they don't get especially hot. They are illuminated solely by the movement of electrons in a semiconductor material. An LED is a lot more efficient than a filament bulb and also a lot more durable than both filament and HID bulbs.Close.
?If measured, the buoyancy of the torch is how positive or negatively buoyant the torch is in water. Usually measured in fresh water, knowing the buoyancy of your torch can help with your overall buoyancy and weighting so you can be better neutrally buoyant when diving. Measured in GramsClose.
|Max Burn Time (mins)|
?The length of time that the torch will provide light at 100% powerClose.
|Max Depth (m)|
?The maximum depth that the torch has been rated to by the manufacturerClose.
|Max Output (lumens)|
?The maximum brightness of light the torch can produce at its highest setting.Close.
?There are a number of different switch types available. Push buttons require the diver to depress a button to activate the torch and change power settings. Many use a magnet on the outside of the body so that no part goes through the body itself but some still do with seals to prevent water ingress. Twist ends, collars and heads are very common. The diver simply twists the bottom cap or head unit to complete or break the circuit. Twist caps usually have a double o-ring to protect the battery and electronics from damage. The disadvantage of a twist cap is that if the diver was to unscrew the cap too much, there is a risk that the torch could flood. The O-Rings also wear with use so prolonged use can result in flooding. Kinetic torches are controlled by motion and are the most water tight solution.Close.
?Torches are usually either a polymer or anodised aluminium for corrosion resistance. Plastic parts are cheaper but more fragile to damage.Close.
?Whether the entire torch (including batteries) is held in the hand or whether the light unit is connected via an umbilical cable to a seperate battery unit for extra capacity and burntime. Photo / Video Lights have an even beam that floods the scene with light with no hard edges or hotspots so it doesn't look odd or stand out in your pictures. Ultra Violet Lights use a specific wavelength of blue light, not usually Ultra Violet, that excite certain parts of animals that cause them to glow and fluoresce showing unusual patterns that the naked eye cannot seeClose.
?Whether the torch offers multiple power levels other than the standard on and off.Close.
