LUX vs Lumen

Posted on

When purchasing a dive light, many customers have heard the term lumen used to describe or rate the light output. What is a lumen? Is a lumen the best way to qualify light output?

Halcyon has put out a great 3 minute video which illustrates the differences between lux and lumen. It also has some great cave diving footage. Enjoy
