Quality LED lighting vs Cheap LED lighting
Producer/Director Matt Davis compares some cheap LED lights with the full spectrum Felloni LED lights.
It is well-known in cinematography circles that not all LED lights are the same! Some have a green tinge; others flicker when dimmed or brightened; many fail to produce results which are pleasing to the eye.
The Felloni LED lights, distributed by dedolight, are regarded as top quality LED lights which produce first-class results. These can be dimmed without shifts in colour temperature and do not suffer from green spikes or weird effects which can cause havoc to skin tones.
The difference between the cheap LED lights and high-quality Fellonis is clear to see - as the saying goes: "you get what you pay for!"
