Hi folks,

... I'm thinking of buying the dedolight 400hmi and want to know people's experience of them. They look very versatile as the beam can be well flooded and be spotted to a high degree. I'm curious as to how well the col.temp holds up under dimming and lamp-life etc. Do they run a similar 'blue' to an Arri?

Interested to hear your thoughts...

Yes, I have used them. Very good lights with the unsurpassed Dedolight projection - very smooth source that is evenly illuminated and can change size. It's also quite short and will fit into tight locations.

Very focusable - low profile - nice output - can be run @ 575w as well. Must use Dedo proprietary bulbs.
It's a lot lighter in weight than say the Arri 575 HMI Fresnel - maybe not quite as durable.
I've owned mine about 3 months with no issues whatsoever.
There's an expensive projector type accessory that can be used to project a tight beam - over $1,000-
that would be a nice addition. I'm a happy owner.
