If you didn’t have the opportunity to see the prototype at last years February freeze, you missed out on a treat. At that time the LED market was really starting to explode; and now that it is in full swing, Lowel have released their mighty Blender.
It doesn’t make smoothies, but it will give a needed kick to your shoot. It’s a lightweight, LED, on/off camera sun gun that on top of being incredibly power efficient, is custom settable for a huge range of colour temperatures. It’s a great accessory to any shooter that finds themselves in the situation of natural / tungsten mixed light and can’t compensate with a white balance on camera.
There are two dials which allow you to blend tungsten and daylight to whatever level works for your shoot. From the sample images we have seen the results are fantastic.
To top it all off the wonderful folks at Lowel will be giving away a Lowel Blender at the February Freeze! Be sure to come by the Lowel booth and talk to Don. Mention the blog contest for an entry form to win the free Blender or print one out here!
When you come and visit the Lowel booth be sure to check out the Blender. It will be there to test out and play with, as well as the softcore lighting system! See you there!
February Freeze takes place February 9th 2010 from 11am to 7pm at Pinewood Toronto Studios MEGA stage, located at 255 Commissioners’ Street, Toronto ON.
