  • Hello All UW Photo Veterans,

    1 simple, quick question.
    UW light for still photos, 1500 lumens enough?

    Thanks!

  • Depends on how far is your subject. I have used less than 500 lumens for closer subjects before and they are ok.

  • Yes, agree. It really depends on how far, the angle you are taking and whether you are taking upwards (facing surface) or downwards (to the seabed). If macro, i only use 860lumens which i think is more than enough.
