  1. Hi just wondering if anyone knows these workings? The reflective characteristics of the material would be required I believe, plus the size of the bounce. What are the rough calculations to work out the distance from the ultrabounce to get a reading of 67lux? (t2 , 25p , iso800) Cheers Jon
  2. Great, thanks for this. Can chargers of a different brand to the battery damage the batteries? I’ve exclusively used the 4 way idx charger with my idx batteries, but bought a smaller hawkswood 2 way charger for its lightweight appeal. One of my batteries is no longer holding a charge. Just wondered if this is possibly related?
  3. Hi I have some v-lock battery which are starting to age. Is there a test which can be performed on them to find out their health? I'm a bit of a noobie to electronics... I have a multimeter which I know how to test their voltage, but thats not entirely helpful! Thanks in advance.
  4. Some of the Cine Reflect Lighting System panels give a linier bounced light, have you seen any materials which give this look? See attached image
  5. Ahh nice, looks a bit like silvered foamcore. I've also found quite a bit of "perspex mirror" and "Vinyl mirror rolls" which could be stuck on to foam core. I also might try applying a matt spray to achieve a different quality
  6. Ahh thanks JD, I wasn't famililar with Mylar looks really useful
  7. Hi Phil, thanks for the reply. Yeah it's not really to achieve a perfect throw as such, a bit of an inconstancy in the mirror would be fine. I need to create a moon glow onto a bed from a window in a cramped small room with no access to outside the window. I'm looking to boom the mirrored material to the window and bounce on a light (setup all inside the room). I’ve found some sticky back plastic mirror stuff on Ebay I’ll give a try
  8. Hi, just wondering if anyone had any tips and tricks / alternatives they used for budget reflected material? Generally I'll use in descending softness: unbleached muslin , polyboard , Ultrabounce , white foamcore , silver floor insulation board , Thermawrap Foil Wrap , lee 273 silver reflector etc I'm kinda looking for more materials to add a bit of a DIY "cine reflect lighting system" Does anyone use any light weight mirror like materials? Cheers
  9. Hi, I'm trying to work out a compared database of photometrics for bebee lights, wendy, maxi-brutes, 18k's etc etc. Is there a generic photometrics calculator / app / website, where you can key in the company supplied photometrics data of each light, then chose to see the reading at your desired distance? Thanks a lot
  10. Great , thanks a lot AJ I'll check these out 🙂
  11. Yeah that's a good channel! I watch that too. I've got all my gels marked up with his method 🤓
  12. Hi, I recently read "Film Lighting" by Kris Malkiewicz which I found very informative, especially the chapter on "lighting on location". David Mullen and other ASC DOP's and gaffers had a ton of tips and tricks to share. Just wondering if anyone had more recommendations along the same lines books wise? I liked the first hand accounts from DOP's and the practical lighting related tips. I do read ASC magazine which also is a great resource. Cheers Jon
  13. Hi, has anyone seen any collections/databases of gel combinations used by DP's for moonlight, sodium vapour, firelight, fluorescent etc etc, along with the camera kelvin settings? Their go to favourites, or particular looks used on films? Every so often there is mention of these in ASC magazine, which is interesting Cheers
