The latest lamphead from The Arri Group – the M18, designed for still and moving image capture – delivers a powerful 1800W of continuous, daylight-balanced illumination, yet is compact enough to take on location work. For this video, he used the Nikon D3s. "The power and spread of the M18 provided an ideal lighting for my model to move freely across the studio on a standard sized Colorama background (see the video below).
Elinchrom’s Scanlite Kit, made up of three heads, is touted as an affordable all-in-one solution for both photographic and video lighting. I tested a configuration that comprises a 300W, 650W and a 1000W head, a few spare bulbs, three 16cm reflectors and a case with a padded foam interior for all three heads to fit in, priced under £820. It also includes three stands and a handy bag that can be carried over a shoulder. Roscoe shot the following video at ISO 1000 "to attain the desired aperture and shutter speed setting of f/8 at 1/250s, while the model was positioned between 1.5 and 2.5m from the three lampheads."
