Best resource for lighting equipment
Posted 14 August 2006 - 09:31 AM
I read a lot of the posts here and regularly buys AC magazines, etc. I come across a lot of names of light equipment i'm not so familiar with(ex. Lekos, Dinos, etc). I am from Manila, Philippines and maybe we don't come across some of the newer equipments available. What is the best site or resource material i can get so i'll can see what these equipments look like and what they do. thanks!

Congratulations on your ongoing search for education. Here are some manufacturer's web sites that have quite complete information about a large variety of lighting instruments:
"Leko" is one brand name often used generically to describe ellipsoidal spots. There are several dozen types of ellipsoidals from a variety of manufacturers. A very popular one comes from the "Source 4" lineup made by ETC.
The "Dino" light is a recent addition to the film set. It is an array of 1Kw PAR 64 bulbs like that shown here:
The Dino is similar to a long-time standard fixture on the set, the FAY light (named after the bulb used in the array.)
Hope that helps.
