imposible to shoot ? really ? give me a 80 or 100:1 lens and some practice time. golf, polo, baseball, its skill.... and some reasonably high FPS. a mid range RED or F55 would do.
Wait until you see how expensive it is... And if never processed processed film before, the chemicals. Temps, mixing, processing times, disposal problems. For a while they sold mini E6 processing machines so the DIY crowd could get consisant results because doing it by hand was really tricky. Far more so than b&w which i have done. No thanks. You have no idea what you are missing. Kodachrome is a completely different process that's very complicated and tricky and can only be done on a machine processing system and even more nasty chemicals. It is gone forever. in case you forget film is environmentally nasty to process
There is one place this makes sense - a big light up on a condor where changing anything is a time eating process... Except this product cant take the heat of a typical hmi you'd be using in such a situation.... Not many leds good for space lighting. In a far more limited situation maybe a light mounted up on a grid where it could be hard to get at. Otherwise this is sort of a solution in search of a problem. $1200 buys 10 full rolls of diffusion which would go a lot further than one of these things - assuming thats something like a 4x4 in size.
total plagiarize...to think no one would figure out where it was stolen from.
that was meant as a satirical comment... and while _you_ can decide to re-classify lights, it pretty much flies against all industry norms. you remind me of this PA that called all light & C stands : tripods. He couldn't be educated to learn proper terms for things, was totally lax on safety, I got rid of him on 3rd shoot because he was just dangerous literally to be around and could never get the right thing asked for.
well if these are all spotlights, whats an actual spotlight called ? :(
