Hey everyone,

 

Has anyone ever used a scissor arc to create lightning strikes. Panalux rents one out and I was wondering just how it works and what the power requirements are as well as what the general effect would be in terms of duration and colour temperature of the flashes.

 

Thanks in advance.

Holy cow, that does not sound OSHA. I had no idea those were still available.

 

Sorry I can't advise, but I really want to see the final shot and get your review on using it.

 

Make sure the operator wears a welding mask (I would think shade 9 or so) and long sleeves--if it's anything like an arc welder, you can get a sun burn if you're close to the arc.

 

Are you sure you don't want an Eco Punch LED lamp? They have some great lightning chase programs built in--a pair set to different patterns looks especially convincing.
