A Comparison of Dedolight to Lowel and Arri Lights

Have you ever experienced the awesomeness of a Dedolight in real life? If not, this might be the video that finally gets you to drive out to your local dealer and try one!

Mitch Gross at Abel Cine Tech put together this terrific short demo showing the difference between Lowel, Arri, and Dedotec light heads of similar wattage. Mitch explains what to look for when sizing up a lamp; beyond brightness, it’s also important to consider the light’s evenness, precision, falloff, and other considerations that don’t always show up on spec sheets (but will impact your day-to-day usage tremendously.)

Gelly Roll: Store, Protect, and Organize Lighting Gels

Gelly Roll protects your expensive lighting gels and comes in two sizes: 20x24 inch and 10x12 inch (for Lowel lights)

Take Better Care of Your Expensive Lighting Gels

Gels aren’t particularly durable. Gelly Roll is a clever way to keep them protected from dust and accidental damage. Your gels slip easily into a secure pouch which then rolls around a rigid center tube. Built-in elastic straps then secure the whole package for easy storage or transportation. And what’s really cool is that you can take the cap off the end of the tube and store your clips — convenience and no wasted space!

Depending on what formats of gels you use, Gelly Roll comes in two sizes: industry-standard 20×24 inch, or the 10×12 inch size often used with Lowel lights and other still photography systems. And to keep yourself organized, mix and match from any of four colors: red, blue, orange, or gray.
