MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM THE PERTH SCUBA CREW!!!Merry Christmas from Perth Scuba

What a busy year its been… not just for us, but for just about everyone you talk to! So much to do – and of course so many dives to do also! With Christmas here, its time to take out the time to spend with the ones who mean the most to you and to kick back and enjoy some hard earned time off. We will be taking a couple of days break over Christmas Day and Boxing Day and then we’ll be back into it from there on for all of your diving requirements. We look forward to seeing you all soon.

The Perth Scuba Crew would like to wish everyone a safe and Merry Christmas and if we don’t see you before… a Happy New Year!!

LIGHT & MOTION SOLA LIGHTS ARE HERE!!!

PERTH SCUBA NOW CARRIES THE FULL RANGE OF LIGHT & MOTION SOLA DIVE, PHOTO AND VIDEO LIGHTS.

Light & Motion Sola Photo 600

This week we introduce the LIGHT & MOTION SOLA 600 PHOTO

Sola Photo 600; its the lightest, brightest and one of the smallest focus lights available. The bank of red LEDs adds stealth for catching shy critters and fish – keeping  that Seahorse looking straight down your lens!

Specifications:

  • LUMENS   High- 670 Med- 335 Low- 165 Red: 225
  • RUN – TIME   High- 80 Min Med- 160 Low- 320 Red: 200
  • CHARGE TIME   150 Minutes
  • SIZE & WEIGHT   57mm x 101mm & 283 gr. w/ Ball Mount

Sola photo lights have a factory sealed body so you never need to worry about flooding. A magnetic coupled tap switch instantly flips between red and white mode or increments power levels. Three indicator lights behind the bezel report the power and battery charge status.

Multi-voltage charger interchangeable blades and external wet connection gold plated charge pins for long life. Built-in lithium-ion battery is charged through external charge ports with gold plated receivers for years of use. You never need to remove the battery and charging is easy and fast on beach or boat.

These dive lights are so small yet so bright – here’s a quick comparison: A 24W HID Brightstar Darkbuster is 550 Lumens (brightness of the torch) and gives you about 80 minutes at full charge, a Sola 600 Photo gives you 670 Lumens for 80 minutes at full brightness… That’s pretty special in my opinion and absolutely PERFECT for those of us trying to keep our dive gear weight down! The Sola 600 Photo is a fantastic piece of equipment for any photographer and at $695 it’s a brilliant investment that will save you the frustration of a camera that won’t focus or a critter that swims away!

Stay tuned next week as we introduce the Sola Dive and Sola Video lights – or better yet, come in and check them out yourself at Perth Scuba! For more details click here

Perth Scuba has its very own banked Nitrox at 32%, so you can come in and fill your cylinder in only a minute – PLUS your cylinder doesn’t need to be O2 Cleaned!!!
