  1. I am currently writing my dissertation, assessing the quality of light produced by established diffusion and bounce materials in comparison to LED fixtures compatible with new diffusion solutions, such as those with variable electronically diffused panels. In order to support my secondary research, I have created a series of questions to gain insight from industry professionals and specialists on the future of lighting and diffusion. If you feel you can answer all or any of the following questions and are and industry professional or specialist, I would appreciate it greatly! Q1. Wha
  2. Hey gents, So I tested the Forza 500 up against my Profoto 1200w HMI today, and figured some of you might be interested in the results. Long-story short? I was sadly underwhelmed by the output of the Forza. Colour-wise the Forza was very impressive. Effectively equivalent to the HMI bulb according to my spectrometer. And the beam from the LED is remarkably even too (evidently a COB has significant advantages over an open-faced point-source light in this regard) Output-wise however, there's clearly still no replacement for displacement. At 800 ISO and somewhere around 4-5 me
  3. Hello, I just got an order of Litemats Spectrum 1 and 2. I also got a single gold mount battery plate to PL4 to power those litemats on Battery. My question is: How would you power such a light off a gold mount battery? What would be the minimum requirements of that battery to be able to turn on the light? I know it is possible since the accessory is sold by Litegear themselves in order to power the Litemat 1 and 2 Spectrum via a single Gold-mount battery... I'm asking since I tried using a 160WH 14.8v and the light won't turn on. (I would use those batteries to successfully power the Lit
  4. Hi, We are two technicians working in the film industry in France (a grip guy and a gaffer) and we just discovered this very interesting forum. We particularly noticed that gaffers and cinematographers were asking questions about light output and what aperture is obtained at a certain distance. It happens that with the help of two IT engineers we developed an iOS app responding to this question about 2 years ago. First and for all, we’re not going to post messages everywhere on this forum to sell our app nor are we going to pollute your threads to gain in visibility. We just think s
  5. Perfect conditions! Regular import with box and genuine Sekonic pouch. Asking price is €850 If you don't have an EU or UK VIES enabled VAT ID I have to apply local VAT.
  6. I’m shooting with V3 500T 7219 this weekend and I haven’t been able to find a good source of information regarding using LED fixtures (Lite Mat Plus 1 S2, Hive Wasp-100C, Quasar Q-LED) on film. According to the Kodak via the Vision 3 brochure it states “If the kind of lamp is unknown, a KODAK WRATTEN2 Color Compensating Filter CC30R + CC20Y can be used with an exposure index (EI) of 250. Light Source Exposure Index “ which seems like a safer bet, however I was going to mix in a few Tungsten fixtures for hard light. Has anyone worked with these LED lamps and V3 500
  7. Hello, Was wondering if any of you ever used a Skypanel S60 with an Anton bauer Cine VCLX block battery? I know battery voltage of Cine VCLX has max 28v (3pin XLR) which reduces light output from S60. My question is mainly regarding cabling in order to power the Skypanel on this type of battery. Arri don't seem to have/sell a cable or adapter from Battery input on the head 23-36V DC (4 pin XLR) to 28V (3 pin XLR) output on the Cine VCLX. Do you, in that case, DIY the cable? In which case, what recommendations do you have for AWG of cabling, max length and/or other useful informatio
  8. Hello everyone, My name is Tayyib Mahmood and I am a film student from Birmingham City University (UK). I am in my final year and currently writing a dissertation on LED and Tungsten Lighting. Now the question I have is for all DoPs, directors, gaffers etc. I would like to hold a Skype interview or even email to document your opinions about LED and Tungsten lighting. Is Tungsten lighting becoming finite and are LED lights taking over the film industry? Is there a reason why Tungsten lighting is the predominant force in the film industry today? What issues do filmmakers have with LED regar
  9. Good day film folks. Recently B&H had a special where they advertised a sale on the new Litepanels Gemini 2x1 bicolor LED soft panel. This is Litepanels answer to the popular but expensive Arri Skypanel. You can check out the comparisons online and I decided it would be a good choice for a more affordable price. I went for the US plug option which has a manufacturer product code 940-1301. B&H currently sells this item for $4,512.50. On their special which appears to have had ended, they sold the product for $3,194.85. Thats a huge savings. So I jumped on the chance and boug
  10. Hey everyone, This is my first real post on this forum so bare with me. I've come here for a few years when I have questions but have always found the answers without needing to make an account. Anyways... Like some of you guys, I bought into the hype around the Aputure 300d about a year ago. I own and operate a lighting rental company here in Phoenix and the promise that this LED could potentially replace some of the smaller HMI's we generally use was enticing. Not long after using the fixture for the first time, a huge design fault became apparent, as I'm sure it became apparent to a lot of
  11. I have two identical sets of the Digital Sputnik DS3 Modules w/ Snapgrid(softbox) and 1 - DS1 Module. I'm in the middle of the a personal project and finances are tight, I need to sell off some of my equipment. These are amazing lights and I sad to see them go. I have two identical set ups listed below and selling them for the same price. I might be willing to sell pieces but would prefer to sell them as a kit. These lights are in great shape and I only used them on one shoot, other then that they've been sitting in my garage collecting dust. The kit includes Digital Sputnik D
  12. Anyone know of a decent CRI, mid priced bi-color LED mat (or smallish LED fixture) say around 24" X 24" that has diffusion options? Light Gear's LiteMat looks awesome but it's a little pricey around $1,300. Came TV LED's a little too cheap... I'm looking for something in the middle. I already have two 31 Kino LEDS, but I'm looking for something super portable to VLog with. Thanks for any suggestions!!!!
  13. Hi Everyone. I am new to this website. My name is Tayyib Mahmood and I am a film student at Birmingham City University. I am writing a dissertation on a comparative analysis between LED and Tungsten Lighting and I need of a few interviewees. This can be done over video call (Skype). I am in need of anyone with industry experience who would like to give me their opinion on Tungsten and LED lighting and which would be dominant within the upcoming years. Thank you, Tayyib
  14. I'm still pretty new to lighting. Recently I was able to try some kino flos for a few days and I was really happy the images I was able to get. I have saved up enough to buy a gaffer set, and I really would like to own a good set of lights so that I can just spend a lot of time practicing and testing things out to learn for myself. My question though, is this not a great investment considering how LED technology is coming along? Are there LED lights out now that I could get instead that have a similar look/output without having to deal with replacing bulbs etc. Or is there something be
  15. We are trying to light a barn in a remote location at night. Even at over 100 feet, the generator is too loud to allow us do noise-reduction on the dialogue. All our lights are LEDs. The main 3 lights we want to use are the Aputure 300D (300w), and 2 Aputure Lightstorms (120w each). We are thinking about trying to hook together a couple of deep-cycle batteries with an inverter. The numbers say that we should be able to power all 3 lights for a few hours. But I thought we should ask the pros before making the purchase. I hate ADR!!! Rick
  16. Hi everyone, I'm a long time reader and a first time poster and student. I'll be shooting a shooting a short film in about two months from now which calls for "a bar lit with neon signs". Think of the Bud Light and Heineken signs many bars have as reference. Obviously we won't be able to use any brand signs because of legal issues but I've been thinking of several alternative ways to achieve the same mood. Also real neon signs are expensive and a serious safety hazard. Also keep in mind that the bar will be filled with fog similar to heavy tobacco smoke you see in many movies.
  17. Hey, I used these LIFX A60 LED bulbs last week with good results - https://uk.lifx.com/collections/featured-products/products/lifx - Has anyone had experience using them for high speed shooting, and do they have flicker issues? We're looking to shoot 120FPS Cheers, Greg
  18. Hey guys and girls I have an upcoming shoot where I need to light a few different office scenes in a way that looks modern, clean and uniform. The location we have has a good all around ambience that sits at approximately 4900-5800K throughout the day (this warmth comes from a large building across the road that bounces a lot of light into the space. Two space lights, balanced to daylight and sent through an overhead 8x8 butterfly with full silk, will light the boardroom scene, and for other scenes there will be a lot of practicals that will provide the motivation for areas where the
  19. Hi all - I've got a big block battery which I was hoping to use to power some portable 1x1 LED panels for location shoots with no mains power. Problem is, the battery has a 3-pin XLR output and the panels I'm looking at have a 4-pin XLR input. I have 2 queries: 1. Can I use some kind of 3-pin XLR to 4-pin XLR adapter / cable to connect the battery and the LED panel? I've seen a few around online but not sure if they're suitable for taking battery power (see Dedolight DEA423 3-pin to 4-pin XLR). I'm also a bit wary about pin polarity etc going from 3-pins to 4-pins... Not sure if th
  20. So this week I am going to make my first DIY flexi LED panel. Going to get the YUJI BC series LED's. Will mix 2700K with 6500K, with a cross dimmer. I am shooting a short film on Saturday, in a relatively tight location, and the director wants relatively free camera and actor movement at times. I am thinking this will be good to quickly tape the panel overhead / on a wall, with lots of diff, for some side/overhead tungsten, but not have any stands in the way (we don't have a gaffer either, so I will feel more comfortable with this. How do people use flexi LED panels, or just the L
  21. Does someone used some of these lights? http://www.litegear.com/ What are your thougths about them? You have the lite mat's and the lite tile... or know where can I find a review about them?
  22. Hi, i'm currently in my second year of Uni and for my dissertation my question is "Will LEDs Lights be able to replace every type of light used in film production? " If anybody who has knowledge of different types of lights could help? By doing this questionnaire I'd really appreciate it thank you. :) https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd75cWHDKLyzAQ4gygI19yFEOWUUhkpW1tTUJZZWWP9uVXvmA
  23. What do I need to Connect Tube lights like in the photo here? I'm a complete newbie to them and want to be able to make my own designs.
  24. Hello Everyone, My name is Vicken Joulfayan, and I am a new member here! I am a graduate student at the New York Film Academy in the Masters in Filmmaking program but my focus is primarily on cinematography. I am the DP for seven master thesis film projects, two of which are scheduled to be shot in the next several weeks, and am in need of advice for lighting. Although I have researched a lot and have a general idea of how to light each project, I need your advice in deciding which exact equipment to rent. The projects have budgets but they are minimal. I've embedded links to the first tw
  25. If you've ever wanted to build your own Kino type lights, you know that one of the most difficult challenges is finding the right hardware for mounting the fixture to stands or other industry standard hardware. I'm including a link for some components that I have available that can solve that problem. This hardware can be used to build a fluorescent, LED or other lighting fixture that needs a detachable swivel mount, and the mating plate that is permanently attached to the fixture. Please follow this link and see if this is what you've been looking for to build your own lights.
