Underwater ImagingCheck Out The New IVP Twin Light Mount

Check Out The New IVP Twin Light Mount


There’s a new underwater camera mount being unveiled this week on the Indiegogo crowdfunding site that has a simple purpose: to increase the quality of your underwater still or video camera by adding adjustable lights that pinpoint the camera’s focal area.

The IVP Twin Light Mount is compact (allowing the diver to get into hard-to-reach places), strong and durable, and can be tucked into the BCD if both hands are needed.

The lights on the mount would bring back the red spectrum and add richer and more vibrant colors to photos and video.

Alan Gillett of IVP (Inspired Video Productions), a videographer and an avid scuba diver from the United Kingdom, is the one behind this concept. He says:

“It’s taken over a year to get the design right, but it has actually been other divers that persuaded me to take the idea to market, and the only viable way I could think of doing so, was through crowdfunding on Indiegogo.”

Gillett is offering the IVP Twin Light Mount for £15/$19/17 Euros on indiegogo.com. Combine it with two 30-meter underwater lights and a waterproof telescopic selfie stick from Amazon, eBay or other online retailers, and you can have an underwater photography and filming kit for your camera or action camera for less than £65.00/$86/74 Euros.

That makes this a pretty cost-effective solution for underwater photography and filming on the market today.

Gillett is hoping that the diving community will see the benefits of the light mount and help him reach his £17,000/US$21,640/19,309 Euro funding goal.

For his first stretch goal, Gillett says:

“If we reach our £17,000 funding goal, 5 percent of all net profits of all the pledges will be donated to help towards Sharks in Peril, Marine Debris and Coral conservation.”
