Surely it has to be Oakeley? You can see the sheer scale of the place from looking at the excellent diagrams on this site.

It's Cwmorthin and I'm in it :D

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

heheh I'm not going to get famous for that, I was only in it for 2 seconds. I bravely volunteered Pred whist I quietly set up the blast.

Looking forward to seeing Roy in Episode 2 Smile

Pred and Cwmorthin were obviously the highlight, but that was an excellent hour of TV.

They seemed to manage to light the underground parts adequately, all too often they just wave a small torch around which might be good for dramatic effect but can be very annoying. They seemed to get a better balance of lighting than usual.

They are all over eBay, just put in Imolent DX80
About £240 on there various sellers.

Tip
Carry with battery body unscrewed, regardless of safety lock they can come on and set something on fire.

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?
