In Topic: High CRI video lights for macro work

09 February 2016 - 07:20 AM

 

The FIX NEO 1000 is cheaper and have more light in the spot mode 600 vs 500 lumens... Color temp is rated the same. Could be better. They are only listed for 369 euro a piece.

 

 

Undecided between the FIX NEO 1500 vs 1000... The higher flood lumen is tempting for wide angle work, but will there be a signifigant difference in the spot mode for 500 vs 600 lumens... They also seems to have totally different led emitters in spot mode...

Well, Ultra HD Blu-ray seems to feature HDR etc on several of the first releases. The Samsung player looks to hit the retail space first.

You shutter should be 1/50 for 25 fps video.

 

The camera let me do 1/25. :)

I decided to do a quick dry run.

 

Gh3 + Olympus 60 macro.

 

shutter at 1/25 (25 fps video)

 

f stop started at f16 and ended at f8.

 

lighting was a scubapro nova 700 (rated at 700 lumens and its a narrow tight spot)

 

I also tried to light the scene with a 100 degree video lamp, but that was a waste like you guys allready have stated.

 

sorry for the shake, it was bad tripod not suided or the weight of the camera, and autofocus was running continously.

 

still I found it interessting that the narrow beam was up for the job.

1. Its been stated that for macro work 1000lm (or below is plenty) for a narrow beamed light.
2. There doesn't exist low powered (<2000lm) lights with high CRI

3. The lights you mentioned have a 'warm' mid morning temp to them, where as higher quality lights have a more direct sunlight (5400k) temp

4. A beam angle of 30' is a suggested max for macro

4. Recommended the FIX Neo 1500 DX SWR (6000k temp)

 

I think there is a lot to take away from this thread! :)

 

The FIX NEO 1000 is cheaper and have more light in the spot mode 600 vs 500 lumens... Color temp is rated the same. Could be better. They are only listed for 369 euro a piece.

 

But still sceptical that 600 lumen spot is enough for a high f setting on my GH4...
