Malcoml MIlls with Cinemills LEDZ Superspot LED Lighting

Two weeks ago we published a blog called, “Cinemills LEDZ Getting Eight Superspots Ready for Tony Nako” In the photo, Malcolm Mills posing with the lights.

Cinemills LEDZ commitment to the advancement of LED technology is extended once more as we premiere the LEDZ SUPERSPOT, the brightest and most robust LED fixture that meets all of the standards and needs of the world’s most demanding gaffers and DPs.  The LEDZ SUPERSPOT is the first in a premiere line of sharp, powerful circular beam producers.  With a throw that easily exceeds 40 feet, the SUPERSPOT is comparable to current 575w HMI fixtures, including the 5500k color temperature whilst only drawing a single amp.

The LEDZ SUPERSPOT is extremely robust with an all aluminum housing and yoke system with junior mounting pin. It has a slim profile so can be used in a multiple of lighting setups utilizing minimal space. The fixture produces no sound and very minimal heat, making it studio friendly.  There are two built in dimmers on the fixture which allow for 100% – 0 output control with minimal color shift. The LEDZ SUPERSPOT comes complete with a switchable power supply unit 110v -240v AC, extension cable with on/off switch. There are additional accessories available including the LEDZ Speedframe, Chimera, filter frame, DMX capabilities and 12v battery options for mobile applications.

After completing the lighting units, the team was getting them ready to be shipped out to Tony Nako, Chief Lighting Technician for feature films. [See related link from Tony]

Creating Fun and Alternative Uses With the LEDZ Brute 3

Here are some recent fun pictures sent to us from one of our product users. Originally, the LEDZ Brute 3 was used on-board the DSLR, for video, as additional lighting to cover live event. The event was for L.A. Beard and Mustache Competition 2012, held at The Belasco Theater, in DTLA.

Creating an alternative use, the user switched from video to photography, and used the light to help manipulate the mood of the image. Requesting the subject to hold the light and shine it on to his or her face, created a sort-of-monster-lighting.
