Actually my good friend Pred is the main event, he does all the talking on screen whilst I hide in the background. I'm rather shy on screen.

BUT I do blow something up!!! Devil

Did the camera survive?!

What are they like quality wise? fairly robust or tacky rubbish?

I was hoping to make some more videos for Go Below at some point but they are always so hard to get it bright enough.

A really good camera can work excellently in low light but I don't really want to shell out a grand (plus) I don't have. A brighter light for my existing camera might be a cheaper way of getting good results.

Are they alright?


The model I have I believe to be the first and the charge socket has to have its plug inserted firmly and taped over to render the torch immersion waterproof.
I found out the hard way, but it dried out OK and worked perfectly after.
Apart from that it does what it says on the tin

Photos can be taken with the camera handheld on ordinary daylight settings, and they come out quite good. best are obviously along passages, chambers would have the light localised.
This is possibly its best potential, situations where its inconvenient or not enough time to set up a tripod.
