I like Diva lights. They are light, soft, colour temperature agile, dimmable and produce very little heat. They are even reasonably inexpensive. Depending on your definition of inexpensive. And Kino-Flo blazed the way and helped push for the development of broadcast capable bulbs. But when you get right down to it, Divas are a little more than bulb clips with high frequency ballasts, and both of those, as well as the bulbs, are commodity parts these days. Once something edges into being a commodity, it’s only a matter of time before imitators start assembling those parts for less money.
So it is with Flolights. They make a product very similar to a Diva, for much less dinero. I ordered four of their 6 bulb units to light the seamless cyclorama in my workplace. I can run all four off of a single circuit with Edison plugs. I’ve had them for over a year. I’ve yet to replace a bulb (they’re not being used day-to-day), and they’re doing what I bought them for: covering a large area with lots of soft light. I don’t cart them around in the field, but the reviewer above has. Check out his views….
