A Quick Look at the Dedolight DLED7 Turbo from NAB 2017

Our longtime friend Daniel Norton of the Adorama PRO department dropped in to check out the Dedolight DLED7 Turbo, one of the most popular light heads we showed at the booth this year. Click through to enjoy two minutes of unscripted television…

Dedolight DLED7 Turbo
As you can see, the 90 watt DLED7 Turbo is a beefed-up version of the well-received 40 watt DLED4 light head. A great deal more powerful than the DLED4, the DLED7 Turbo is nearly the same size but adds a heatsink, actively cooled by a whisper-quiet fan. So even though the Daylight version produces up to 38,000 lux @ 1m in spot mode (vs. 14,500 on the DLED4), the DLED7 Turbo is still well-suited to lighting scenes that call for minimal ambient noise. Like its predecessor, the DLED7 Turbo is available in Daylight, Tungsten, and Bicolor versions (the latter being continuously adjustable from 2700K–6500K.) And as is often the case, it’s compatible with many Dedolight Classic series accessories, so if you invested in those attachments many years ago, you’ll be glad to hear that they will still work with this light head. (Since Dedolight equipment has always been so durable and so meticulously constructed, there’s a good chance your accessories are still in great shape.)

To better appreciate the attention to detail, check out the precision with which this DLED7 Turbo can focus. It can literally reach pin-point accuracy—jump to 5:30 for proof! Imagine the possibilities this could open up for you in terms of lighting eyes, logos, or anything else that needs a bit more “punch.” (Unfortunately for those of you in the news business, you won’t be able to actually punch politicians in the face with it, no matter how much they deserve it.)

Another Dedolight hallmark is compact size relative to light output. This pre-configured kit comes in Bicolor or Daylight versions (designated KLT7-3-BI or KLT7-3-D, respectively). It contains lights, ballasts, stands, filters, gobos, a projection attachment… everything you need to set up a beautiful three-point light system for on-location interviews or similar setups. When it’s time to roll, all of this equipment packs neatly into a hard-shell rolling case that’s small enough to carry onto an airplane. (Can’t say how it’ll function as a shield if you happen to find yourself getting bumped from a United flight.)

Dedolight on YouTube, Featuring a Video Walkthrough of the DLH4

We’ve proudly offered Dedolight products for many years now, because we feel they produce some of the best gear in the industry. (They don’t give technical Oscars to just anyone, after all.) Many clever and dedicated people within their organization work hard every day to make precise, resilient, world-class lighting systems for film, photography, exhibition, architecture and other applications.

Now, for the visual learners among us, Munich-based Dedo Weigert Film has uploaded several videos to their YouTube channel. Please spend a few minutes looking over what they’ve done, and follow them for continuing updates.

Embedded below is a walkthrough of one of their most popular units, the DLH4. Enjoy!
