Jem has a little bit of a scoop here. I’m very interested in what he terms LED 2.0. I’ve held off on LED based studio lights for 2 main reasons: low output and low Colour Rendering Indexes. Jem’s scoop is so fresh that Kino doesn’t really have any information posted on their own site about their new Celeb 200 LED light (such as price, output, weight, measured CRI) but it looks promising.
Lots of other companies have been encroaching on Kino Flo’s traditional territory of soft, cool light by using cheap LED panels. I was wondering when they were going to return fire and get back in the game. Looks like it will be soon.
