Hi Forum,

 

Has anyone used LED strips, other than LITEGEAR, that don't flicker and are relatively bright? 

 

Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I am based in the UK.

 

 

Regards.

They're all fairly bright and none of them flicker unless you use PWM drivers. Most of the dimmers and colour-mixing drivers use PWM, so I built linear dimmers.

 

Finding stuff that doesn't look odd colours on camera can be a bit of a chore.

At the end of the day I've found the lite-gear stuff the most reasonable to use on set in a price/performance/hassle evaluation.
