Chronos User Discussion / Re: What Lights Do You Use?

I have Godox VL300 300w LED Lights with Neewer Fresnel 2X Lenses if I need them. They do get quite hot but give a lot of light, they not as hot as incandescent lights though, If they re all on 100% I have to wear eye protection.

You could maybe use a Arduino type device to control each section wired to a switching amplifier.  You would need to write a small piece of code to allow 2 push switches to control the PWM on each section via its associated Pin. It would be interesting to see if a 36v stepper driver would work as you can limit the current and they pulse really fast so you would limit flicker at high frame rates. I wouldn't be testing it with a 500 LED though lol.

I have used an Arduino to control LED strips using the controller in the image attached obviously you would need something that would switch a lot more current for bigger LEDS, It did work ok I had it set to send serial signals to control the brightness from my PC.

I will see what bits I have floating around and try to experiment to see if the stepper driver will work.

Carbide Insert Enmill, f/11 and 243, otherwise same settings as above. Sorry for all the Dirt on the Lens btw.

That looks great !

My first proper video from the new camera, I think its going to be a steep learning curve! I'm finding it challenging but interesting just going through lenses to see which works best for me.
