Thanks for your hard work. In your previous test, I enjoyed the test with a daylight light and a CTO. I wish you had done another one of those. My strategy has been to purchase the daylight led lights and apply a CTO. One reason for this is that I bought some Dracast Bicolor lights, and I find the knobs do not adjust the color smoothly. There seem to be sudden jumps in the color. This has been very frustrating, so I'm worried about getting another Bicolor light.
Can I ask a stupid question? A year ago, when I set up my studio, I didn't know what I was doing, and I bought couple fovitec/Studio Pro lights. I notice you didn't bother to review them. Is this because they are obviously inferior, and not even worth the bother to review?
Thanks for the article. I'm new to video production. When I was setting up, I bought a pair of Studio Pro S-1200D LED lights, for about $350 each. My studio also has some sunlight. I strongly suspected something was not right with the lights, but until I read this article, I couldn't verify my hunch. After reading this article, I did an experiment. I put my white card about eighteen inches from a Studio Pro light, and I custom white corrected my camera against that white card. Then I looked at the room through my camera, and saw an acute green tint. The tint was really bad. ( Remember, the rest of the room has some sunlight.) I was shocked. I guess I should have spent about $500 more on each light. Still trying to understand how a "green spike" causes a green tint after the camera is adjusted to the light.
