There is a TV series consisting of three parts called Water Colors and produced by Liquid Motion Film for National Geographic, about underwater communication through colors, the third part of which is titled A Touch of Fluorescence, which contains some unheard-of and stunning footage of underwater fluorescence (even in the deep sea!). The series can be ordered directly from the producers; the three DVDs (3x50 min.) cost € 45 in total plus € 9 shipping (UK to NL), as of autumn 2012 - a real bargain, since the whole series is simply amazing!

See this video interview of Dr. Anya Salih from the University of Western Sydney, by the American Museum of Natural History, which gives an excellent insight into the medical applications and importance of underwater fluorescence.

See Steffen Beyer's Fluolinks web page for the most comprehensive collection of information and links about fluorescence diving on the Internet, in particular with information about how to build your own gear and where to find other vendors of or suppliers for fluorescence diving gear as well as operators who offer fluorescence dives, and lots of photos and videos.

In particular, see his section about products for a comparison of other vendors and products.

Please note that we provide you with this link because we do not shy away from comparison with other manufacturers. We are confident that our equipment performs better and has a better "bang for the buck" ratio. Contrary to most other vendors we experiment a lot and test our own gear extensively in order to fine-tune it for optimal results. We do this out of passion for underwater fluorescence and for fun, never mind the costs. This would simply be too expensive for other manufacturers to do.
