Hello, I was curious about the effects of putting a dimmer on a kino. Is it bad for the globe or the ballast? I don't mind burning globes and even though the ballast are rentals I don't think it's cool to burn them out. If it is bad for either can anyone give me some insight as to how bad? Will the globe only last for five minutes or just shorten it's life? Will the ballast immediately burn out? Any info is greatly appreciated!
EDIT: I want the flicker effect as I am shooting a broken down space ship.
