Hello All,

 

As some of you know I have a website devoted to lighting which I update with info about some of the newer lighting tools that I've either used on set or seen at conventions.  There's some cool new stuff out there - including the gplex, a palm sized dmx controller unit that works off your smart phone from Gantom.  I also got to play with the new Lowel Pro power LED lights and the new Ushio Pro-Panel LED 2x2 softlight.  Too much to post here so just visit my webpage if you're interested.  Happy holidays!

Some sort of glitch with the URL, I think, David.

 

I had a chance to play with the Lowel LEDs back in March and I thought they were OK, although a bit expensive for the fairly low power level.

I agree. The output isn't high, but most LED spot/flood units, unless you're going to go for Mole and Arri, really don't have a lot of throw. What worked for me was how subtle they were. They blended in and didn't look too artificial, allow the images to lot "unlit", which was want the producer wanted. The kit isn't cheap, but no LEDs that are really usable are yet. The many knock-offs of Arri and Mole lights out of Asia have very poor color rendering and are off on their Kelvin temps. The Pro-Panel isn't cheap either, but its around the price of a celeb, but bigger which gives it more output and a better wrap.  Right now I'm still using tungsten lights and kinoflos.

 

I think this link will work better.
