My Aputure 300D on batteries is a game changer!
All great advice!
Thanks for sharing!
I totally agree, you are getting old! (JJK, me too!) On the other end of the spectrum there are some true gems on YouTube like Simon Cade that seem to make up for the noise makers and click bait.
He is a little loose with his Kelvin numbers IMO. Also, a grip usually doesn't touch electrical over here in the US. They handle safety, the rigging, light shaping tools, and camera support. Electric is handled by the gaffer.
After using the 300d today for the first time on-set, I can fully vouch for the power and flexibility of this light. This thing has an INSANE amount of power! Super easy to move around and small. Setup is lighting fast! The fan in the AC ballast is a little loud, but that can be hid or you can use batteries and eliminate it all together. The fans on the light are beyond silent. I'm happy I have a tool that is truly an 800 watt HMI replacement (and I don't have to lug around that HUGE ballast anymore). Add in that I can pick up Bowen mount accessories for next to nothing and I think I'll be using this light until it doesn't want to work for me anymore.
MORE Foley secrets!!!! YAY!!!!! Thank you!!!
