LED Lighting Guide – Fiilex

As we’ve seen a shift in the professional photographic industry from primarily still image creation to full motion, we’ve adjusted our rental inventory to keep pace with the demand. LEDs are the hottest, well coolest, new wave in lighting products because of their small size, cool operating temps, incredible power output, adjustability and flicker-free light output.

Recently we’ve added a variety of the LED lighting equipment to our inventory from top manufactures like Dracast, Fiilex and KinoFlo. Read on for an in-depth look at our LED product lineup.

Fiilex Lineup

DiCon Fiberoptics, manufacturer of the Fiilex brand of lights, conquers the most challenging issues facing LED lights for still and motion photography.

Accurate Tuneable Color

Control of the color temperature facilitates unlimited lighting applications.
Using the Dense Matrix LED, the P360 has the ability to smoothly tune the spectrum of light, producing any color temperature of white light with high CRI.

Dense Matrix LEDDense Matrix LED

The Dense Matrix LED, allows for more LEDs closer together on a single array. This allows for all the chips to emit through a single lens, making for an effective point source light, that creates a single shadow. The array consists of multichannel LED’s which gives the ability to color tune the light.

Sound is an important area of consideration for our engineers to meet the difficult standards of motion picture. We have come up with a superior solution to dampen the acoustics.
