Hello Mr. Deakins & dear forum members,
hope you all started well into this new year.
In the past time, I started to study more and more about LED fixtures, after before being primarily fixated on “standard” fixtures like HMI, Tungsten etc., because I just know how they work.
And I was wondering: How do you guys test LED fixtures in the pre-production of a project? What characteristics do you find important, what are you looking for? I heard Greig Fraser talking a lot about true color rendition in your podcast. Well, how do you test that? Do you judge it by eye or do you have certain colorimeter tests you do? How do you decided for a fixture?
And what are your experiences concerning output of LED fixtures? What is important to look after in this part?
I am also asking because I know that you, Mr. Deakins, used a lot of LED fixtures especially for indoor scenes in Empire of Light, probably for the first time in this extent. And I was wondering, how you decided for certain fixtures, and against certain other popular choices as the Arri SkyPanel for example. And how you tested them.
I am thinking about actually using LEDs for my next project for the first time.
Thank you a lot, have a nice week!
