    It appears that they're using complimentary colors which would just cancel one another out, so then possibly the diffusion effect has only to do with the diffusion features of whatever material they're using. I'm not sure I like the colored highlights it creates, as on the wine glass. I'm leaning towards gimmick with this.

    Could do something like that by putting gels on a mirror and bouncing.

    I think the wine glass looks good.

    I dislike the squares one can see from a good condition softbox.

    Luckily my softboxes are all crushed out of shape, rust stained and muddy.. perfect!

    I think the take away here .. consider breaking your sources for the right shoot when a more naturalistic look is required.

    For example a crumpled net curtain with a few stains over a softbox will 'break it' up a bit.

    THe first few shots were a great sci fi effect that one would only bring in under a specific instruction from the director.. rent not buy.

    Gimmick in an overcrowded marketplace. Pass.
    It's a business first and a creative outlet second.

    A gimmick as in drawing attention in a sea of products but still works?

    I just don't see a whole lot with it that can't be acomplished by other means and the things it can do that can't be easily
    achieved by other means look gimmicky to me. The colored highlights particularly.

    It reminds me of all of the special effects that I have on my RGBWW lights, I have used those effects ONCE in the past two and a half years. I used the fire setting on
    my Luxli Cello for the scene we were shooting with two talent sitting in front of a huge fireplace. It was cool but generally all of those lighting effects are a gimmick
    that I would never consider as a factor in which lights to buy. I honestly feel that way about RGB lights in general, they can do some cool stuff but a lot of it is so
    "effects" looking so as to be not very usable most of the time by most shooters.

    If you dig it though, get one. Dedo makes excellent stuff, you'd never go wrong buying a Dedo product, but I'm sure these are not cheap either?

    It makes sense, since real ambient light is going to have reflections from multiple objects and foliage. I thought the difference was not subtle at all and looked great.

    Some of it really did look like a warming filter to me, though, and a warming filter would impact black and white images as well, so that part wasn't convincing to me. They should have showed differences in vectorscopes.

    Yeah they should have compared the wine glass without the material to show more obvious lighting reflections, which might be least preferred overall.

    I like what it does to the the RGB street lighting at 04:20 as well.

    A Julio Macat ASC endorsement can't be taken lightly and VASTLY different to a youtube reviewer (salesperson) churning out their weekly videos.

    I'm not about to buy a set but curious about the tech.
