Hey I just wanted to start a conversation about the new Arri SkyPanels and see what everyone thinks about them. Feel free to point out things to improve on, things it does well, etc.

I just bought one of the S60-C fixtures and have been finding lots of ways to use it. A lot of DPs I work with have been digging it too. For me the selling factor is control. Very quick and easy color and intensity tuning, and an extremely wide range of adjustments at that. I try to have DMX control of everything too so this unit fits in perfectly to my Luminair workflow.

There are a few small things I don't like: color can be skippy when you're doing through hues. The intensity knob is weirdly sensitive sometimes and very unresponsive other times. Unpredictable. Also I tried controlling my fixture via RJ45 instead of DMX recently and I got no data. Not sure why it didn't work.

Let er rip!
