    I sell complete Gopro sets for a lot less the 800.00USD

    The Blackmoly III lights gives you best light to weight ratio.

    I got them together with the Big Blue Go Pro tray, the tray isn't going to win any awards for looks or ergonomics but for the price its a great package.

    The 1800 Lumen Black Molly lights are pretty impressive too, there's also an in-between set of 2800 Lumen video lights but they are a lot closer in price to the 5800 set than the 1800 so I'd suggest either going big (and over budget!) for the 5800 set or getting the pair of 1800 and tray but staying well below your $800 budget
    Hi Karl,

    Thanks for all the info.

    Lights: http://www.leisurepro.com/p-bblal100...beam-led-light

    I dunno if this set up will work for go pro, but it's cheap and it's worked really well for me!

    Good luck.

Light holder holds a 1" diameter light. I also have a three hole clamp. I have multiples of everything but the tray. I will pay shipping within CONUS. I can also knock off a few bucks for buying multiple items.

    Best regards,
    I don't use their tray setup because I built my own for use with a scooter mount. I use their 3500 lights with the GoPro to document cave exploration only. I have several friends that use their tray and lights combo and are very satisfied.

    Hi Chett,
    The VL 1500p is only one light. Are you talking about VL15,000P?
    BigBlue doesn't have a 1500 video light no more.

    The smallest video light is the 1100XWP then you have the Black Molly line of video lights.

    VL3500P Tri-color, VTL 3100 Video and spot(changeable)
    VL 5800 Tri-color, VTL 5500 Video and spot.(changeable)


    You have so many options you have to decide how bright a light you need :)

    For me I use the VL 3500 tri-color with floating arms and a Go-pro tray. IMHO the best set up for anything you want to film with a gopro.

    regards Garry
