    I'm interested to hear how it works out. If the reviews are good I may have to pick one up for "nudi season".

    Looking forward to the reviews with the TG6. Currently I use two Big Blue VL 4200P video lights.

    My mini arrived yesterday. Pulled it out of the packaging last night and am charging up the batteries. Looks very nicely built. More to come.

    After figuring out how to turn it on (pro tip- when they say quick presses, they mean really quick presses), everything hooked up and fired correctly. Hoping for a weather window this week to get out. Temperatures are dropping up here in Maine which makes it hard for me to motivate myself to go out. 2 weeks and I will be in the Bahamas on Blackbeard’s so it will get a solid workout then. Good luck with yours. Keep me in the loop.

    Mine is here and working fine (but I wonder what kind of engineer decided that 5 button pushes were a good idea to turn it on and then another 5 to turn it off). I have tested it against the Kraken LED 3000 in strobe mode and against an Inon S2000. It looks to be about a stop or a little more less power than the S2000 and about a stop and a half brighter (at 5) than the Kraken.
    Cheers

    Bill, I agree. I actually thought I had a defective unit until I realized that 3 seconds really meant 2 seconds.... Not the most elegant solution, but none the less, it seems well built. Very good to hear about the comparison with the Kraken and the S2000. Thanks for the feedback.
