Given that the Einstein can already keep a constant color temperature across the entire range of flash output, would it be possible to make the constant color it's maintaining variable? In other words, could you add a feature so that you could set the color temperature to, say, 4500K, and it would keep it there regardless of the flash output, like it's currently doing at 5600K?
I understand that this would require extra development and wouldn't happen anytime soon, but if most of the color temperature correction is based off of firmware, it seems maybe it would at least be a possibility. If it was, what kind of color temperature range would it be able to reproduce?
This could potentially decrease or eliminate the need for gels (or domes with color correction built in) and I could see it as another big selling point in addition to everything you've already got going.
I would if I could but I can't (neither can Broncolor). The Full Power flash duration is established by the flashtube design, I could design a flashtube to produce 4500°K, but it would have a really long duration and then couldn't be made to produce 5600° at anything but very low power via IGBT.
A lot of what Bron publishes sounds like magic, but isn't. Yes, they can adjust color and duration, but only on the same basis as Einstein does . . . you cannot set it to produce 4500°K at full power, nor can you make it do 1/8000 or anything other than the specified 1/85 sec and native color temperature at full power. This is pure physics.
