Sponsored Trip to Roatán with Single Divers!
We recently just got back from a trip with SingleDivers.com, where Bigblue was the primary sponsor for a group of dozens of divers heading out to explore the beautiful island of Roatán. SingleDivers.com organized and executed a flawless trip! Bigblue was represented by Tim, our President, who brought tons of lights for everyone to use and experiment with. Sign up for SingleDivers' mailing list to keep up to date on great travel deals for divers.
DEMA Show Prep
It is that time of year again and we are feverishly preparing for the annual DEMA show. This year it is in Orlando, FL which is about 90 minutes from our home office. Due to the massive success and growth of Bigblue Dive Lights over the last year, we have upgraded our booth to a 10x30 and we have added some fancy new displays. It is at the DEMA show each year that we introduce our new product line. We are super excited to have some new lights with additional features, along with some of our favorites and best-sellers carrying over for 2018. If you are a dive professional or dive shop owner, we look forward to seeing you the week of Nov 1 - 4 in booth 435. Be sure to check out our sister company, Darkwater Vision in the booth next door. See you all soon!
Understanding Bigblue Product Names
Recently a customer asked us for some guidance with our part numbers. He asked what the AL, CF, VL, VTL, TL represents and also the NP, WP, XWP at the end of our products. Here is a brief description of how our lights are named. The AL is one of our first light prefixes and it stands for Aluminum Light. Today, all of our lights are anodized aluminum. The CF means Changeable Focus which will have an adjustable beam. The TL means Technical Light which will have a more concentrated narrow beam. The VL means Video Light which will have a wide beam. The VTL means Video Technical Light which will have both a wide beam for video AND a narrow concentrated technical beam. The numbers on our lights directly correlate to the lumen output. The P at the end refers to Push button power system. NP means Narrow beam with a push button. WP means Wide beam with a push button. XWP means eXtra Wide Beam with a push button. Ex. The VL3500P is a Video Light with 3500 lumens and a Push button power switch. We hope this helps explain our part naming system. If you still need help or have other questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 727-442-2300. We are open M-F 9-5 EST.

Another Satisfied Customer
Noah Perdue 5 stars Fantastic customer service, first of all. I called twice while putting my order together to get some newbie questions answered and the people here are SO NICE. Also, I asked one of the super friendly representatives if I would receive my package by a certain day, so she pulls up my order, asks if I'm Noah, then says she'll have it sent out today! Great experience, can't wait to receive my order, expect to be just as stoked about the products!
2016 Light Line Is Here!
We hope you all are as excited as we are when you see the new 2016 light line! As a general rule, most of our lights have been given a boost of brightness and battery life. The prices have either maintained or in some cases have decreased! We have also added a few new items such as head lights that can be used above and below water, an extended camera tray to accommodate larger housings, and several lights with a tri color feature. Whether you are new to diving or a seasoned professional, we have the lights to fit your needs!
Review From The Dominican Republic Speleological Society
Dominican Republic Speleological Society (DRSS) Your welcome, we use BigBlue lights on all our shoots, hands down the best video lights availble, extremely versatile with the dim controls, lights all give off a great beam spread that looks great for all video and pics. These lights are extremely rugged and reliable and super compact. In the Abaco shoot we used 2 VL2800 on the camera and divers each had a VL5800, that's it no strobes just those lights and it worked perfectly.
