Today we’re talking about some pretty redheads more specifically, LED Redheads I have one right here, and the other 2 are lighting my face. Welcome to Cinegraf Studio. I am Vladimir. Today we’re testing an LED entry level lighting kit that’s more then adequate for pros looking for a backup kit or they just don’t want to pay a premium price for having lights in their filmmaking kit. The issue with regular halogen lamps is that they get really HOT in a smaller space, the heat they produce can quickly become quite unbearable and if your talent is wearing makeup you’ll soon be dealing with a melting mess… A regular halogen Redhead is cheaper but long-term the costs rise due to burned out light-bulbs and the electricity bill. And it may happen that, right when you’re shooting your masterpiece, the light burns out. An Led Redhead offers you the luxury of shooting for extended periods of time without giving a second thought to these issues. Another thing to keep in mind is safety, traditional halogen bulbs have a way of EXPLODING Halogen lights should NOT be moved while they’re turned on. If you’ve had any mishaps with halogen lamps during your shoots please share them in the comment section below I’m curious to hear about them. The Redhead kit that I’m testing contains 3 lights It’s adequate for interviews, news reports, documentaries, to strategically light various set pieces, – and the novelty of these lights – – They don’t get hot – so you can use them in tighter spaces, for shooting your vlog for example. The light has 2 separate cables, one powers the daylight balanced leds, the other the tungsten ones. The power brick is fitted with an on/off switch and 2 dimmers, one for each led bank so you have control over the temperature and intensity of the light. These Redheads have 60 tungsten LEDs and 60 daylight balanced LEDs. Let’s see how these lights perform. The light is 1m away from the light meter I wanted to test the color rendering of these lights and how well they mix with other lights on a film set. You may observe how easily the light is controlled using the barn doors provided. In the second shot the light spills onto the background. I chose a light from Aputure because of it’s high color rendition index. Before the color correction you may observe a substantial difference, especially in the rendering of warm color tones orange, yellow and pink. Surprisingly, after the color correction the difference between the two becomes harder to notice, and we get a pleasant natural looking result. I’ll let you guys judge the final result. If you don’t need high color accuracy, these Somita Led Redheads are definitely a bargain. What do you think?
