I’m constantly looking at gear porn, and searching for the best products to make my job(s) better.
This fresnel from Zylight, the F8, seems to be a badass option for video production, and even some photography. But I’m worried it’s not worth the $2400 pricetag.
This is certainly one I would want to tryout before purchase, but I’m not sure there’s a place I could find it.
About the light:
The F8′s advanced ultra bright LED module ensures excellent skin tones and rich, accurate color rendition. Continual focusing and an adjustable beam spread between 16-70 degrees allows for even coverage when shooting with wide-angle lenses or HD 16×9 format. Beam specifications are available for download on our support page. The F8 uses a high quality glass 8″ Fresnel lens and has an equivalent output of a traditional 650 watt instrument. Barn Doors, soft box and other accessories will be available soon.
