  1. https://www.amazon.com/CRJ-2-Pin-Female-Adapter-2-Pack/dp/B083CRN5L6/ref=sr_1_17?dchild=1&keywords=crj+3+pin&qid=1623176603&sr=8-17 You'll have to learn by experience but DIY is an expensive hobby This "looks" like the right connector, but looks can be deceiving as many connectors look similar but are different sizes. This should work for 3 and 4 pin fans.
  2. Just did a quick recording test. At 6ft away using C300D II as baseline, hyper cardiod mic pointed directly at front of fan. Gain to my voice set at -12dB (standing next to light). In post raised levels by 30dB and used Audition's average RMS reading for the scanned selections and noted the difference. Also tested at 1ft. Of course the closer in you are, the larger the difference will be. 6ft /1ft FS300 Stock ~ +12dB/13.6dB 6ft/1ft FS300 Noctua 1300rpm ~ + 1.2dB/3.6dB So in real life, with your light anywhere from 3-9ft away, with the mic pointed away from it and much clos
  3. You can do whatever you want for the connection, there's many ways to do it. You don't have to solder if you don't want to. If you don't already have supplies there's actually a cable you can buy on Amazon, crj 2 pin to 3 pin adapter for $8usd. Which you're paying for the convenience. Obviously only works with 3 pin fans.
  4. Fan came today. Non scientific testing since I can't get access to the temperature sensor (without more tools). Fan replaced with Noctua NF-P12 Redux 1300 Temperature delta: apprx +2 degrees C, fan noise comparable to Aputure C300D II, different characteristic. May be slightly louder, but much quieter than stock, negligible temperature increase. Lowering fan speed to around 1000rpm (guessing, using no name fan reducer) temperature delta up to 9C, a little bit less noise, not really worth it. Lowering fan speed to around 750rpm, temperature delta up to 19C, runs almost sile
  5. Pick any fan you want But why would you pick that fan? It's loud...
  6. Stock fan I searched online, couldn't find anything for the specific model. I'm guessing it's a 2000rpm fan? I am still waiting for the 1300rpm Noctua to come in next week. I tried a Noctua 1700rpm and that is also too loud, it's quieter than stock but still way too loud. The design of the light also doesn't seem to have any sound design at all, the heat sink adds a lot of woosh and turbulence, so there's only so much you can do (much like all the other cheap COBs). I will do a heat delta test, I'm willing to let it run a bit hotter as I'm in a cooler climate.
  7. With the capture card: Welcome to broken usb and hdmi ports, please enjoy your stay.
  8. Wanted: a partner that loves me as much as Panasonic loves DFD.
  9. Not sure, couldn't find the specs of the stock fan on Google. I ordered the grey 1300rpm noctua and will see how that goes, might have to bump up to 1700. The light doesn't display temperature so I'll have to figure out where to measure it, I'm assuming the metal part near the sensor should work.
  10. Thread on DVX also has all the details. http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?370135-Nanlux-Evoke-1200-LED-Spot-Light
  11. Just got mine in the mail. Ran it for an hour and have already disassembled it Fan swap is relatively easy, I might make a video on it when more parts come in, I tried a Noctua 120mm 7 or 900 rpm and it doesn't push enough air. EZ to damage the male JST connector on the board though - more cosmetic than anything else. It's louder than my computer!
  12. Someone should compare the cheapies to the expensive units It's literally a piece of glass and a shroud, so if the glass is the same... Should get same results. I don't mind paying more for better quality, but for teleprompters it's hard for me to justify over $500, what else am I getting... I just "hacked" my cheap tmp500 into a poor man's eye direct, those are crazy prices!
  13. What is your budget? Free option: telepropmter app that uses your ipad, phone, or webcam. For teleprompters there are many designs that fit different sized display devices. Some only fit certain dimensions, so if you decide to use a larger screen one day you won't be able to use them anymore. This is dependent on the size of the beam splitter glass and the layout of the screen holder. There are many cheap designs that work perfectly well with a phone as the screen for under $60USD on AE. Also the ones that clip onto the top of a laptop to use with the webcam. For larger s
  14. I think he means audio, I could be wrong. That would be cool.
  15. GH5 selling for $800USD where I'm around... and they hardly sell too.
