Now my son miles is going to help us demo
which is like a four by four
Kino Flo on steroids.
Bring this baby in.
Pop it on.
There we go.
We have the standard four by four that we've all known
but the beauty of it
is we have absolute dim-ability
as well as the ballast being engineered
inside the head.
Usually you had to have a head extension and the ballast went down on the ground
these are full DMX capabilities on these so we can put it into a dimmer board and
control them perfectly to whatever level you would like and this is where the
digital sensor comes in. That just that third of a stop
you would have to turn off a bulb to lose that.
But now you can keep the softness of the full all four lights but you can dim
it down to get that same huge source but just dimming it ever so slightly so it
works with the digital sensor. When we were doing film my God you'd blow these
things out no problem you could overexpose really nicely but with these
digital cameras the clip factor happens. It doesn't roll off as
wonderful as film does so you need this ability to slightly dim and this is
where this light really comes into being.
Now the standard four foot four bank had an egg crate that went on there. Kind of
the ones that you've seen in uh like if you went into office spaces where they
had the egg crates put up in the ceiling.
Well they've now embraced the honeycomb revolution.
Miles, grab me a honeycomb.
So we have that complete control.
Now you see me. Now you don't.
And that's exactly what the light does. It easily velcros right in here.
Did you get that? Nicely done Miles. And this controls the light
So let's see that light control. Alright Larry kill the key
Alright. Bring this in. Bring it all the way up on the dimmer.
So now Miles has that nice soft source on this side and then when i go back
I don't have any light on me.
Now without it
If I just drop this down. I'm pretty much lit. Right here, right?
But this is the beauty of this honeycomb because we can do that now that right there.
Ok and now I'm not lit back here but Miles is lit.
So now let's take that one step further
let's say we don't have to worry about the light control but we want to make it
Take the honeycomb off.
And now we bring in the diffuser.
is like a little more tent action
this goes right on to the light.
Can you reach it over there little man?
Alright. And now you've taken the fluorescent and you've used a grid cloth
fabric that doesn't make noise it's a silent grid cloth and it's able to
soften that already very soft Kino Flo light even more.
