"Thanks for doing that comparison of the pinspots, Nick! I have just ordered a couple of the 3W variety in warm white. They all seem to come direct from China, so it might be September before I get them!!"

"About those cameras - I'm not so keen on the micro 4/3 format, So at first I didn't even look at the Olympus specs.  Prejudiced maybe.  Looking now, I see something called "anti-flicker shooting capabilities" which is…"

"Those spots I ordered have arrived.  The $20 3 watt LED "warm white" looks ok, I can definitely use it for backlighting puppets.  It has an identical plastic housing to the purplish one I bought earlier, where the back section…"

"James, Camera shop guy is sort-of wrong, at least about the Canon cameras.  Exporting video from Dragonframe is mainly for a preview version, not your final high quality film. For animation, for the final product, I get the full still photo…"

"Here is the purplish "white" pinspot with and without the CTO lighting gel to try to correct it.  I tried yellow, and the light come out green.  With a rose pink colour, it come out more purple.  The 1/2 Colour Temperature…"

"Here is the 3 watt LED pinspot, and the size and shape light it throws onto the set.  I also show the light from my old 6 volt 12 watt halogen pinspot. It has a single clear LED, a very thick lens which is almost a hemisphere, and another lens…"

"Hans, I'll let you know what it is like.  It should arrive between 24 June and 20 July. I think most LEDs are naturally blueish, and the Neewer panel light looks like all the warm white LEDs have yellow on them to change the colour.…"
