Hi allFor some reason I can't find (pink) flesh coloured plastalina anywhere except ebay which would cost me close to $50 per lb after shipping - which is ludicrous, considering I can buy a lb of…Continue

StopmoNick replied to Michael's discussion Question about LED bulbs.
"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…"

StopmoNick replied to Michael's discussion Question about LED bulbs.
"And finally, the Par16 with GU10 globes, both 50 watt halogen and 5 watt LED.  I use these a lot as my key light, with the pinspots being used for backlighting on specific puppets.   Like the pinspots, the LED seems to provide a more even…"

StopmoNick replied to Michael's discussion Question about LED bulbs.
"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…"

StopmoNick replied to Michael's discussion Question about LED bulbs.
"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…"

StopmoNick replied to Michael's discussion Question about LED bulbs.
"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.…"

Hans Jacob Wagner replied to Michael's discussion Question about LED bulbs.
"@stopmonick - I've been looking at these low-cost pin lights as well. And I wonder if it would be possible to build a focus on it, like on Dedolights. So it's nice to hear that you're going to pick one more. The light in your link…"

StopmoNick replied to Michael's discussion Question about LED bulbs.
"I have a couple of the slightly smaller Neewer panel lights, 480 LEDs, and they are useful for a softer wide light, but not really for picking out details.   I use the Par 16s with 50 watt halogen GU10 globes, tried a couple of LED replacements…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Michael's discussion Question about LED bulbs.
"Sure, a panel light is not a spotlight. I have also got some old type PAR 16 cans with barn doors, and have fitted some high quality GU10 LED bulbs to them. They are much more like a good spotlight. I have been using an IKEA flexible stem LED light,…"

Michael replied to Michael's discussion Question about LED bulbs.
"Hi Simon. Thanks for the reply. Actually, I have one LED panel light I found on craigslist. It's a 660 LED Neewer dimmable panel. It seems to work quite well as a fill light - no flicker. However, I don't see them being very functional…"
