Why Continuous Lights Are Right for Photography

Why Continuous Lights Are Right for Photography

Continuous lights  — Arri M18 , Kinoflo fluorescents, Litegear LiteMat 1×1 LED’s, Litepanel 1×1 Astras Bicolor LED Panel, and the K5600 Joker Bug HMI series — are staples of the motion picture and video industry and they’ve solidly entered into the still photography rental world. Continuous lighting systems are more powerful, smaller and consume less power than previous versions of motion picture tungsten lights. Present day still-photographer-friendly continuous lights also include daylight and tungsten fluorescents that are cool to the touch and create little heat. Moving Picture Rental stocks all of these as well as an extensive line of photo equipment rental at our Miami and Fort Lauderdale locations. Benefits of using continuous lights The first benefit is that you’re able to see exactly how light falls on your subject in real time. The ability to quickly make exposure changes on your camera and move lights while observing what the light is doing is an efficient way to work. When you use continuous light sources, as opposed to working with strobes, you’ll never unintentionally blind your subject as you angle the light to that perfect spot. Nowadays, many continuous lights are dimmable. Dim or increase the light’s output while you’re looking through the camera to reduce or increase the aperture and change your depth of field.  And thanks to the fact that fluorescent and LED technology has come so far in such a short time, power consumption on many continuous light sources is minimal. Starting with the small gear: LiteGear Light Mats.  They are super portable, dimmable, and give you Kelvin temperatures between 3200K and 6000K.  They can be battery powered or plug them into the wall. The entire LiteGear LED light family is super flexible, containing a variety of LED panels and LED strips, as well as small LED squares that can be cut to size for product shots, eye lights, and even under counter lights for architectural photography. LiteGear products are fast, flexible and portable. You can even power the LED strips and small LED squares off 9volt batteries.  These are new to photo equipment rental houses like ours. And now for the continuous light big guns: Need a punchy daylight source? The Arri M18 Lights are revolutionary. Throw a medium chimera directly onto the light or bounce off foam core or bead board and you’ll be able to light a large number of people or products with soft light. The Arri M18 plugs into a 20 AMP household AC plug and outputs just 1 F-stop less than conventional 4K HMIs. Shooting in an older home? We’ll rent you a 1200 watt HMI bulb that draws only 15 AMPs.

Benefits of Renting ARRI Lighting Systems

Benefits of Renting ARRI Lighting Systems

As a production company, cameras and lighting are a must – but when you travel offset to shoot your production, packing a 20 pound light is not ideal. ARRI lights are the most desired lighting systems for any production set, and the latest ARRI M-Series is exactly what every Producer and Director of Photography is looking for. The ARRI M8 is equipped with ARRIMAX Technology and its patented, open face design makes ARRI surpass the competition. M8 lights can be focused between 15° and 65°, allowing for an ideal light field with crisp shadows. Its faceted reflect light output produces 800W and has a temperature tolerance of 6000K. The M8’s cross cooling allows for safe operation at 90° for that perfect shot. The ARRI M8 was designed for mobility, but even as the smallest ARRI light, its 17.2 lb. weights make traveling difficult.
