Luna 4 V Video Light Review by Kathy Mendes

I was so happy when the Luna 4 lights arrived! [...] They seemed to be fairly neutral to slightly negative as far as weight underwater. The lights were really easy to use, even when wearing thick 5 mm gloves! The lock pulls down easily and then the collar twists to set the lights at Low or High power. The light was even and the beam was nice and wide for good coverage without falling off on the edges and leaving a circle of green in my video. And they were so powerful! The Luna 4’s lit up the kelp forest bringing out the beautiful pinks and purples of the coralline algae encrusting the rocks.

Review of the LUNA 4 V, 2012 model, by Steve Douglas

The barrel of the Keldan Luna 4 is made of the same anodized aluminum that the Luna 8 is made of and both the look and quality of build remain intact. [...] Unlike many underwater video lights, the Luna 4 can be used outside of the water which then increases its spread to 110°. I love that the Keldan is also a self contained light so that you do not have additional cables or battery pods to lug around. When I first turned on the light, the Keldan Luna 4 V amazed me at just how much beautifully clean light this produced. [...] The build quality is excellent and feels sturdier than any other light from any other manufacturer of underwater video lights I have seen.

Review of the LUNA 8 LA-V CRI, 2012 model, by Trevor Fulks

First thing I noticed upon hitting the bottom and firing up the lights: these lights are extremely bright. I knew intuitively that 4500 lumen per light was a lot of light, but I have to confess I harbored a little doubt as to whether it would be "enough" given that there are lights out there in this price range which are rated up to 6000 lumen. My doubts were unfounded. I immediately cranked both lights up to full blast and was amazed a the huge area of the surface of the wreck which was illuminated. I was so taken by the view that I left the lights on high and totally blew out the first few minutes of footage.

Review of the LUNA 8 LA-V CRI, 2011 model, by Steve Douglas

At the apex of current underwater light technology arrives the Swiss made Keldan Luna 8 LA-V-CRI underwater video light which I had the pleasure of trying out on a recent trip to Kona, Hawaii.
For underwater work, capturing the colors that disappear the deeper you go without proper lighting, the Keldan Luna 8 LA-V CRI lights are a shooter's dream light.

Review of the LUNA 8 LA-V Video Light, 2010 model, by Eric Cheng

Subjectively, I remember the quality of light as being absolutely beautiful -- the Keldan Luna LA-V LED video lights are smoothest, most even lights I have used. A gentle gradient at the edge of the beam transitions scenes from brilliant light to darkness, but it was so smooth that I can't really call it an "edge." There was absolutely nothing harsh about the light.

Video Light Review, by Thomas Christ, Tauchen Magazine

Trotz ihrer geringen Abmessungen (6 mal 27 Zentimeter) punktet die LUNA 8 WA-V mit jeder Menge Licht. (Translated via Google Translate: "Despite their small size (6 to 27 centimeters) scores the LUNA 8 WA-V with a lot of light.")
