    • Aputure: the Blackmagic of lighting
      I'm not sure it is more powerful than the 60w Chinese fresnel. Sure it draws more power, but there's other factors besides power draw that contribute to illuminance. We'll know for sure as soon as it arrives. There's a 100w version of that Chinese fresnel with a 24v input; if the 60w is close to the brightness of the Pixapro, I'm thinking of getting one and powering it with a 24v LiPo ebike battery. Works out a lot cheaper than v-mounts and should power the light for a few hours. Sending it back is a hassle but it's just not that great as a hard light (which is what I really need it for), with a fresnel lens it's hard but the beam is very narrow. With the reflector it casts wonky shadows. I think that might be due to change from a rough to a smooth reflector surface on the rim of the reflector.
    • Aputure: the Blackmagic of lighting
      1 hour @ full power, 2,5 hours @ 50%. Not bad, given that 30 to 40% (with softbox, grid and double diffusion on) is the sweet spot when I shoot 800 iso with the BMMCC + Speedbooster. And if I need extra power, for exteriors mainly,  I can get up to  3 hours... I was tempted to do the same thing, but I do think the extra power can be handy. And I must say that I'm pleased to avoid customs (in Spain it's a nightmare) and all the hassle/cost of sending it back to UK.

      Erik Naso found that when he switched to faster memory cards, many of the heating issues were improved.    
    • What are the best taking lenses for the Iscorama 36?
      The one I end up using most frequently is the Nikon 35-70mm f2.8 push pull zoom.  That might be too wide for full frame, however.
    • 1DX ii rated at 13.5 stops
      Really I could care less about the numbers. My 1DX Mkii blows my Sony A7Rii out of the water... period. In every respect it's in another league. Anyone that doubts this just needs to do a back to back test of both cameras. And if you haven't done a side by side comparison, don't bother chiming in,  you simply cannot appreciate the difference until you see them both head to head.
