OrcaTorch D810V Video Light | Product Review
Posted by: Sink, Florida, Sink! Admin on August 16th, 2015

I was first attracted to the OrcaTorch D810V video dive light due to its price and specs. With its 950 lumens, 120°  beam and 190 minutes of use per charge, you can’t beat this light. And it’s only $119.95 on Amazon and Leisure Pro.


Packaging:
I like how the OrcaTorch D810V is delivered in a foam padded Polycarbonate plastic case which is great for keeping the accessories together. The case includes:

OrcaTorch D810V
26650 Battery
3 Extra O-Rings
Hand Holster
Wrist Strap
Battery Charger
Manual

Build Quality:
The OrcaTorch D810V is a solid, well-built video light made of aircraft-grade aluminum. The quality can be compared to Maglite. Measuring 5.75 inches long with a diameter of 1.33 inches, it has one brightness setting of 950 lumens. You turn the head of the light to turn the light on. To ensure the light does not leak, the unit come with 3 pre-installed lubed O-rings. It also comes with 3 extra O-rings for when you need to replace them.

Using The Light:
The OrcaTorch D810V comes with 2 ways to handle the light.
If you like holding the light in your hand, the adjustable wrist strap will keep the light attached to you at all times.

While EVERY dive light I’ve used came with a wrist strap, not every light comes with a hand holster. This is great if you like having your hands free when diving. It’s a comfortable fit and the light rests snug in the holster on top of your hand. The few times I didn’t have the OrcaTorch D810V on my camera rig, I used both accessories. I used the holster and had the strap around my wrist (can never be too safe).

How wide is the OrcaTorch D810V 120° beam?
Below is a photo I took in the house to show how wide the 120° beam is. The wall being illuminated is 20′ wide X 8′ high. The light is only 5’ from the wall!

A lot of Chinese dive light companies have a bad rap and I never truly knew why. Because of this notion, my primary dive light is currently an Underwater Kinetics SL4 eLED L1. Fortunately, the OrcaTorch D810V broke the stereotype for me. This high quality video dive light feels more durable than my UK. The UK light is a great light, but comparing them side-by-side, the OrcaTorch gets my vote on quality and price.
