Best way to cut down Kino 4x4 Light
Posted 01 March 2011 - 08:14 AM
What is your favorite way of cutting these things down?
Of course the easy way would be to turn off bulbs but I would prefer not to turn any bulbs off because it shrinks the size of the light source.
Floziers might be an option because they come in singles and doubles and if I need to cut it down by two stops then I can just put two double floziers on there. This might be a good option, but if I want a more harsher less diffused light then I will need to think of something else.
ND gels? Fabric scrims?
I hear ND gels are not so good because they get a color shift over time. But the color shift is mostly due to high temperature correct? And kinos don't get too hot, so ND gels might be a good option.
Also fabric scrims are a little too small for the 4ft 4 bank kinos.

Otherwise ND filter's would work fine - they could fade over time, but I imagine that might take a while to do so. I've never really had call to use ND's on Kinos that much generally options to switch off tubes/dimming and position give enough control for most applications.
I've only had to resort to ND's either where the tubes are being used as praticals and I don't want then to clip. Or in cars/night ext's working at low light levels.
