| p.1 #2 · p.1 #2 · Fresnel Lights - Best for Interior photography? |
I'm not a photography lighting expert, just an amateur. But I have been doing drama lighting for 17 years now and I really like what I see with the new ETC Source 4 Fresnels. That being said, while ETC are the standard for theater and performance lighting, it seems like the Arri is the defacto standard for location video lighting. I've always wondered why; can anyone else shed some light on that? I believe it's because they are a bit smaller and lighter for similar output. I'd imagine the smaller lens would make the light slightly harsher, but I know that Arri's are used all over the place. It looks like Arri makes a 650 watt, 4.3" Fresnel that costs about the same as the ETC Source 4 Fresnel, which is a 750 watt, 7" instrument. Whatever you end up with, make sure you keep money in your budget for a set of barn doors to go with your fresnel.
