Hi all. I'm shooting a short soon and the production designer wants to use LED Linestra bulbs. I'm always worried about LEDs pulsing on camera. We're shooting with an Alexa at 23.98, 180 shutter. Has anyone shot these bulbs on Alexa? Please let me know if you had any problems. Trying to find time to test but prep is super tight. Thanks!

 

Best,

Can you get a flicker meter and test before the shoot? Find out who the manufacturer is and what the CRI of that bulb is. It can add greenish spike to your images, also an incomplete color spectrum. Check this out:
