Introducing dedolight, by Dr. Ivan B. Tonklemousse:
A lighting kit is for life, not just for Christmas, so when you're selecting your kit of lights I suggest that rather than buying the cheapest available you consider investing in dedolight, the Emmy Award winning lighting fixture created by German DOP Dedo Weigert.
Why? Well, the compact dedolight lamp head is probably the most versatile hard lighting fixture available at any price, since it can take a range of lamps from 12v/50w to 24v/150w, has a 20:1 flood:spot ratio, can be battery or AC adaptor powered, is incredibly robust, has low running costs and can be used with a wide range of complimentary accessories ranging from barn-doors to gobo projection systems!
What I love about a dedolight is that it can be hidden or mounted virtually anywhere, is easily dimmed and has a wide range of beam control, filtration and gobo options, enabling you to accurately paint with light.
This is particularly important because with today's CCD and CMOS based camcorders offering high light sensitivity, cameramen rarely have to light for illumination. The experienced cameraman now lights for effect, adding interest and depth to the scene.
In my freelance lighting cameraman days, dedolight was the reserve of the experienced lighting gaffer, however a kit is now available from us at a very affordable price and today, given a reasonable budget for a documentary lighting kit my first investment would definitely be for a dedolight kit - I'd want at least 4 heads, a gobo projector, plenty of accessories and I'd undoubtedly opt for a couple of Kino-Flo Diva 400's too.
