Now I'm a bit concerned about the lights. We have decided not to go for a generator. To heavy to transport and too much noise and hazzle. We will have a campfire to place people around. I've built small Kino like cam lamps. I have tubes that are 3200K. Also have ones that are 5600K incase of strong overhead sun at daytime.
Now I was thinking at nighttime to either
a - use paraffin lamps
b - use 12v Kino tubes I'll build and placing them around. They'll be powered by a Anton Bauer batt belt, or something like that
I will do some testing on the lux cap of the paraffin lamps. We'll be shooting on SDX900 and DVX100a. Canon lenses, J11 and J17. (HD) Gaining a bit might be an option. But no more than 9db I hope.
Do any of you have a better idea to how to get some extra lights in? No HMI pocket Pars, wrong colour and too expensive. to rent I'm afraid.
I also thought a bit about trying out SureFire torches. Putting them in some kind of small diffusion box and placing them around. Have you tested these torches?
Thanks for any info on the subject.
