    Comments about Lowel Dichroic Filter with Holder for Pro, i-Light:

    First off, I should mention, as others in the filter only reviews have, that this filter produces a light with a green hue. That being said, I found that when used for ENG type field work, where you are simply blasting away shadows or whatnot during harsh outdoor lighting interviews, it works very well. I used this mostly for indoor daylit scenes where I had bright windows, and a mix of indoor incadescent lighting, and found that using this filter and the ATW produced very good results. It looks greener to the eye than it will on the video.

    After only a few uses though, the filter fell out of the holder and shattered on my last shoot, while I was simply walking along, no jarring or shaking. I checked the holder, and the clip were still in their slots, firmly secure. Have no idea how it fell out, but the filter glass is cheap to replace.

    Dichroic filter did the trick

    By Kappy

    Pros

    • Attach Securely
    • Good Color Value
    • Simple to use

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • General Use
      • Indoors
      • Outdoors

      Comments about Lowel Dichroic Filter with Holder for Pro, i-Light:

      I'm in the field with my lighting kit a lot. Since I use daylight lighting most of the time, it became tedious to have to clip color gels onto the Prolight for every shoot. While the filters aren't cheap, once they're clipped on, there is no more set up. If I need 3200k for indoor, the filter swings out of the way.

      Best Uses

        Comments about Lowel Dichroic Filter with Holder for Pro, i-Light:

        I use this on my Lowel Omni Light, allowing me to use the hot-light in conjunction with my strobes. I use the omni to light backdrops, and Aliens Bees B800 strobes as my key and fill lights. The filter changes the omni to match the color temperature (or visually appears to) of the AB's. Well worth it!
