LED video light colour balance test

Here’s a quick test I did on the new LED video lights.

The video runs for about 10 minutes and demonstrates the colour output of the lights themselves plus that of the colour correction filters. I found the plastic CTO filter to be all but useless but the lights to be very good. They offer a good amount of light output and a pretty good daylight balance with a slight tendency to green. The “minus green” (pink) filter they provide cancels out most of this green tint though so I use it at all times, adding other gels over the top to colour the output.

DIY Video Slider project. Part One.

This is part one of my DIY Video Slider project.

The key features and needs for this slider are as follows:

  • To allow the camera to me moved cleanly and easily along a linear path.
  • Travel distance to be around 0.8m for the first design but to be easily adaptable to longer or shorter lengths as required.
  • Easy design with minimal parts.
  • Simple or zero set-up.
  • Low cost.
  • Easy to reproduce¬†with minimal machine tools required.
  • Easy to obtain parts.

The slider will consist of two parallel rails held together by end-pieces. Everything will be made from aluminium which will be held together using standard steel bolts.

Each end-piece consists of a block of 6060 Aluminium approximately 25mm x 19mm x 100mm in size. These blocks have two 16mm holes drilled into them with 60mm centre-centre measurement.

The two end-pieces may be mounted onto similar end-pieces to increase the overall height and to allow add-ons such as motors, pulleys, controllers, legs and more.

The slider trolley will consist of a set of SBR-16UU linear-bearings. The design may use 2 or 4 of these depending on the required weight handling and smoothness required.

 

Raw Materials:

That’s it for part one as I’m still waiting for some key components to arrive.
