Budget Gear: Sun 6 LED Fresnels
The 6 Sun LED are a good budget alternative to some of the more expensive LED fresnel options on the market. The fresnel housing allows for a good amount of control over the directionality and beam angle of the light yet, with it being an LED, it is still pretty soft all the way through the fresnel with no hard spots like on traditional tungsten fresnels. To my eye, I would put the output at around the same as a 1,000W tungsten fresnel so you get a pretty good punch out of these guys with the added benefit of being dimmable without flicker or any color shift. I’ve used them as second unit lights for Kinos on a handful of commercials with good results.
