Den Lennie F-Stop Academy Rotolight TestDen Lennie of F-Stop Academy posted a video comparison involving a test between a Rotolight AnovaDedo Softbox, and Kino Flo Celeb.

And the Cinedeck looks interesting, although I can’t help but wonder if a SmallHD monitor and a separate external recorder won’t be a less expensive (and perhaps better-balanced) system going forward.
