any problems with flicker or noise?
I like your setup, looks very neat,
how much were the parts?

That looks sweet!
Very good design. Is that a Matthews baby plate? What a great idea!
More pics! (If possible. I know you're busy, so it's greatly appreciated).
By the way, I found the GE bulbs that one of the production studios uses in place of the Kino Flos. I found it at a LAMPS PLUS in town. They're the GE F40SPX35 bulbs. They're T12 bulbs and they are rated at 3500 Kelvin with a CRI of 93 (I believe). The GE F40SPX30 is 3000 K, but I've heard the 3500K renders indoor lighting better. Am I making any sense or am I just rambling. ;D

Total cost was about $50US.
Thats an Avenger baby plate. Hands down, on ever item I have seen, Avenger makes better stuff than Matthews.
No Flicker and no noise.. due to the Electronic Ballast. The first identical light I made a few weeks ago I shot with for 12 hours and it worked fantastic.

Avenger baby plate. Sounds good. I'll look them up. Thanks!
By the way, do you put the light on a regular light stand? Which stand? Is it top heavy? Do you have a pic of the light mounted to the stand?

Jarred, that looks sweet! Quick questions. Did you line the reflector trough with foil? The trough looks like its supposed to have ends on it - did you leave them off on purpose? Why the tape?

tape is to knock down any reflections from other light sources.
There was no ends, thats the way it came.
And no foil, the white gloss does a pretty good job of bouncing by itself.

[quote author=Barry_Green link=board=lighting;num=1092848834;start=0#5 date=08/24/04 at 16:22:31]With a plate like that you'd have to use a stand with a rotating grip head. *Otherwise you couldn't tilt the light into position.[/quote]
if you didnt have a c stand, you can use a regular stand with a gobo/knuckle grip head. I use it on a Cstand with a gobo arm for the most flexibility.

Awesome Idea, I've thought about doing that before. How many degrees kelvin are those phillips bulbs? I'd like to know what the footcandles or lux is about 9 or 10 feet away.
I bet someone that has a machine shop could take those parts and make a large square soft light that's like ten bulbs accross.
Why are Kino's so goddam expensive?
