HMI's on skintones
Posted 09 April 2012 - 10:57 AM
For some reason i find skintones look like green plastic when lit with HMI's.. because of this ive decided not to use HMI's anymore to light faces. But if you do, how do you handle it?

I agree with you too, btw, I never liked HMIs or Kinos/Floros on skin-tones; hence why I try to stay all tungsten unless there's a specific need for the aforementioned (day exts, or matching the look/feel of an office ect.)

same goes for kinoflo's yes, but then purple instead of green... hallelujah to tungsten!

However in the meantime I learned that even though the De Sistis were announced last year, apparently the pricepoint is not out till after NAB this year O_o
In regards to LEDs... since you can control the L7 in detail, wouldn't that solve the spike problem that most LED suffer from? From what I read it sounded like ARRI had a nice color rendition in those lamps. And who wouldn't want key lights that consume very little wattage

As for guy, yeah, it comes off as weird, but he's a smart guy and the information on his posts is available elsewhere. I believe there was a special on the LEDs in American Cinematographer at some point last year. someone else may know better, though.

Here's the comparison. To my eye it looks like the MoleLED is the clear winner.
Here's the article.
