    Arri vs Dedolight

    What do you guys use for continuous light sources? I've been using Arri's for awhile now and wouldn't mind trying the Dedolight 150w and 300w lights if they are suitable for interior work. I haven't had the time to rent them yet, so any information would help!

    Thanks,

    Andrew

    I don't have the Dedolights ($$$$) ... but have hired a photographer who did use them to shoot food ads for me. Fantastic lights with almost infinite possibilities as far as continuous lights are concerned. They run cool, so they seem to be a good choice for perishables.

    That's great news to hear about the heat reduction in the Dedo lamps. Did you notice a difference in the quality of light comparing it to a "normal" fresnel, such as an Arri?

    Thank you,

    Andrew

    Well to be truthful, I've not experienced the Arri lights ... at least not that I know of .... I've art directed like a thousand shoots, so I probably did, but never paid attention to the brand of continuous lighting except the Dedo's. I love the little Dedo generator boxes and all the endless light modifying accessories. This photographer I shoot with swears by them.
