Newsshooter.com technical editor Matt Allard talks to Tricia Maas of Cineo about their latest remote phosphor lights. She explains how the technology works and how it differs from a regular LED panel light.
They also discuss the new Maverick panel for on-the-go shooters – a dc powered weatherproofed soft light with the equivalent output of a traditional 1K. Colour Rendering Index (CRI) is claimed to be over 95, which should make for much more accurate colour reproduction.
Also very interesting for news and documentary shooters is the Matchstix line of small light sticks that can be easily placed in the most awkward of locations. These run on 11.5 to 16V DC power and can be dimmed using Litedimmers from Litegear.
