I have been experimenting with the slow speed 16mm film Kodachrome 40T. --Of course I need all the wattage I can get for lighting, but I am shooting in a tight urban area so parking a generator on the street is impossible.
I was interested in the possiblility of using a 240v dryer plug to power a 2.5K HMI
Could I use this 3000 Watt Step Down Transformer (see link)? I have access to 60amp bates 3-prong to edison plug adapters (which I would plug into the trasformer), we usually use them to power 2K lights. Would this work for 2.5K?
Thanks so much in advance! I love this forum
I just read in the Feb. 2006 issue of American Cinematographer about the new Arri Ceramic lights. A 250w fixture is equivalent to a 1K! Maybe there could be future ceramic lights that are 1000W but put out equivalent to 4K -- from a house plug!
