We have photographed a lot with it in the last few weeks, filmed a lot with it and we have grown a little fond of it because it is a device that is unbelievable a lot of performance combined , explains photographer Martin Krolop.
And the light that is at stake is thatEF Panel 400 from Jinbei. One Surface light with the full power of whole 400 watts , with which Martin Krolop from thePhotographer duo Krolop & Gerst is working.
Can be used immediately and with indirect lighting
„It is a immediately usable device , explains Krolop enthusiastically. He is also satisfied with the panel because, above all, you can work very well with it indirectly. We shine against ceilings, we shine into the ceilings and into the V-Flats. Because we have an almost unbelievably wasteful amount of light..“
According to Krolop, a big plus is that that Light absolutely flicker-free is what he has tested in different productions, as he explains. The photographer also sees this as a very big plus.
Krolop: That's just incredibly brightl“
Then he takes a close look at the lux number in the video, which particularly impressed him. We just have 3,000 lux at five meters . It's just incredibly bright. We use light in our productions when it comes to getting as much brightness as possible over a short distance. Slowmo camera recordings, which often need a lot of brightness, are made with us, or product recordings because you don't need an additional light shaper. Also the easy transportation is a plus point for Krolop. Simply close the barndoors and you can immediately carry the light anywhere.
Furthermore, the possibility of V-mount attachment a big plus because you can also use the light on the move.
Another important point for Krolop is that the panel does not change its brightness when switching from warm to cold light, which is often the case with other permanent lights.
