The Dedo lights have been referred to as the most innovative lightning system ever developed for motion picture and television. They are rugged, dimmable, can be dropped without destroying the lamp, and have been designed with an internal focussing system – allowing for a strong clean beam without stray light.
The Dedo lighting system offers tremendous versatility in that these lights are compact, built for travel and rugged treatment, and provides the user with many options on how these can be configured. There are more affordable lights on the market, however like most things in life you get what you pay for, and with the Dedo system you get a lot for your money.
