    Most powerful HID torch in mass production

    A dive buddy and I were having a bit of a discussion last weekend. He reckoned there are 100W+ HIDs in general use out there for video lights etc whereas I reckon these are actually lower-powered lights with an equivalent rating to a 100W+ Halogen. So, my question is, what is the most powerful HID (not LED or Halogen) in general production (I am sure there will be quite powerful options available if you are getting them custom made at a major premium)?

    The most powerful HID I've been able to dig up is the Greenforce HID 250 which is in reality a 35W HID or more relevantly 2000 lumens. I believe Salvo may have made something similar and this will continue with Leviathan. Anything brighter available out there in HID?

    Have a look at this bad boy, 15,000 lumens should light up your life.

    Salvo also "made" a 200w HMI. I seen it in action when visiting Rasmus Lauritsen from Nortechdiving.dk, the cannister is huge and the light intensity is massive!





    But since Salvo is no-more, it will be hard to get

    HID200 ( its actual a 50W HID bulb )

    or

    Halcyon 200W HMI ( actual 200W bulb with floodlight-reflector for video application like the Salvo and SS above)

    metalsub hid 200 with a 13ah battery , you can select either 28w or 50w on the switch which is nice & it is not as focussed as the Salvo so you don't "burn out" the centre of the spot . You can also buy a cheap replacement bulb with a higher temperature giving you the whiter light .

    Take a look at this cave video to see the bad boy in operation.

    Just thought I would look at the video. Great footage. Am I just the only one impressed with the divers effortless bouyancy control?
