In Topic: Arri Skypanel frequency setting

20 February 2019 - 08:33 PM

As described in the manual:

 

Frequency Selection
This feature allows fine-tuning of the frequency of the SkyPanel’s light output to adjust for slight flicker or roll bars that might occur when shooting at uncommon frame rates or shutter angles. Pick from 10 different frequencies that could reduce or eliminate small amounts of these image anomalies, while maintaining full control over intensity and color tuneability.

Your first image looks like a plastic knockoff of the Kant-Twist clamp.  What does it do that any of the existing grip gear doesn't?


In Topic: Aluminium C-stand column?

Use the casting and pins from a shabby looking used C-stand, substitute aluminum tubing from a metals supplier for the steel tubing.

In Topic: Diffusion frame sizes and uses + fabric sizes

Thank you David and Adrian!   I'll check in with the Rag Place, pick up a 6x6 frame and go from there. 

 

Try Highlight Film Works, local manufacturer of rags, appleboxes, etc., in Yonkers, NY area. Email is easiest: Phgrip01@aol.com   He'll make any size flag or rag you want, with any fabric he has available.  His 4x4 Ultrabounce floppies are great, better build quality than others.  He does re-covers and repairs as well.

Wow somebody has a very stilted viewpoint of the state of lighting today. Since Kino has the bulbs manufactured to their specs, I'd think that they wouldn't want to cause a riot by suddenly making every Kino head obsolete.

A 1x1 Bi-color Astra Lightpanel is still neraly $1000, a Celebrity 250 $2800.
