    But that's due to the fact that the source is not directional rather than because it's fluorescent light, right? I mean, a hard tungsten source will fall of just as quickly when softened to the same degree.

    I'm answering this in the hope that someone will correct me if I'm wrong. Kino's have the ballast built in (as do all fluorescent fixtures). My understanding is that one of the biggest strengths of kino branded lights is the quality of their ballasts. Certainly you don't need an additional ballast to use kino's with regular 110/240v, but I can't speak to using them with a generator although I would think it is no different in that situation.
