I'm looking into flexible LED options at the moment. And was wondering if anyone has any recommendations?
My gaffer had a couple of NanGuang bi-colour flexible leds on a recent shoot, and they were very versatile, and they're very cheap. However we did run into a couple of issues that showed their cheap build quality, and the dimmer/battery plate doesn't have any kind of readout for the current colour temperature setting.
Build quality is a big deal for me, so I'd probably prefer something that's going to be solid.
I just had a look at the Fomex FL1200 today, it's a 2x1 120w unit with 97/98 TLCI and great output. And looks pretty well put together. It's almost 4x the cost of the NanGuang units though.
The rigging possibilities these things open up though are really exciting though, so I'd love to hear people's thoughts.
