Hard to say when we don't know which lights you have in the first place.
Punchy LED lights will still come at a high price. Lupo has made a LED fresnel light that has the output of a 2k tungsten light (roughly): Lupo Light 2000
Rayzr 7 is a bit more punchy than Lupo and has better color rendition than the Lupo in the pure red (92 vs 65.3)
Then there's the Aputure lights... I find them interesting. I think I'll have to go borrow one so I can see what they can do. Currently they have a 120T and 120D and they can operate on batteries.
But soon they will release a 300D and T lamp which has a good deal of light out put.
To get anything remotely like a small HMI in terms of output you have to fork out big bucks to ARRI.
If I had the money for it, I would definitely get the ARRI 10L-C and some Skypanels.
But I guess the Aputures will do for now ;)
I would hands down go for the lights with the best color rendition compared to price. You can't fix color spikes in post.
Agreed... you could really just buy some par cans and blast them through some muslin or gridcloth / silk. They are cheap as help and as color accurate as any tungsten.
Heat issues ofc.
Which is spring 2018...
There's a lot of 4:2:0s in that data rate line up... the best data rates wont be available till sometime in spring 2018 and even then some of them, including high frame rates will sit below the FS7 II...
Not convinced till real world examples show up.
Probably because if they had to make it bigger, which they would have to to make it an EF lens, it would be more expensive to produce and therefore cost more for the end user, landing the lens in a price range which would make it harder to sell due to other options.
I just bought both of them and I have zero regrets :)
Parfocal zooms without breathing at T2.9 and build in macro at that price tag.... whats not to like??!
From what I've read and found out... if you are going to use it in the field, you need a power bank for it... something like the Anchor.
The AA option is crippled, unless you wanna make the unit big and bulky with the 8xAA option or Sony L option, the 4xAA option will give you very little power, compared to say the MixPre-D..... I spoke with a retailer and he firmly believed that SD are beginning to cut corners to maintain a market placement, and the MixPre-3's power consumption is one of those cuts.
I bought the MixPre-3 mainly to use stationary with my computer to feed a TLM into it, I'm NOT at all convinced I'm going to use it in the field with fx. my 5D4......
Out of the box, the Mix-Pre 3 is ready to work with any computer with the accompanying cable.
But it's one of those things I hate with manufacturers today.... they line up several poweroptions and then ships their unis with one option, calling it "service" or an "option" to get the others, instead of just including them.... clever non-customer friendly marketing.
Manufacturers of light are doing the same thing.
