Kino Flo 4' Bank or Arri 150W, 350W, 650W kit?
I've been following no film school for almost three years now. I am currently enrolled in community college. Now, I don't want to get into the logistics of me buying vs renting. That's not really what my question is referring too.
I shoot a lot of low-budget music videos (typically 500-1,000) and am getting more and more cooperate work. So, on that note. I was wondering what the members of NFS think is the "better" choice. What I'm really looking for is maybe someone who has had experience with these lights, someone who can offer some piece of mind. I'm leaning more towards the Kino Flo because it's just so practical for low budget shoots. Espically for times where I have a small or even no crew, being able to set up a light without having to worry about burning flesh while setting it up seems incredible.
I've worked with the Kino before, and have loved it. I do plan to grab the both no matter what. But am looking into which one to buy now.
I'm not concerned about not be able to pay off either of the lights in a reasonable amount of time. I'm certain that no matter which light I get it, I will be able to pay it off in 1-2 months.
I currently own an LED light kit, and simply want to upgrade my lighting gear. while I have the opportunity too.
Thank you in advance to anyone who replies.
