Can the DS1 be powered via XLR cable?

Can the DS1 be powered via XLR cable?
Asked by: Darin
Hi Darin, The DS1 light fixture needs to be connected to the power supply via dedicated light module cables. There are several cable lengths available ranging from 2.5' to 65' to allow maximum flexibility in positioning the components. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=Digital%20Sputnik%20DS%20Light%20Module%20Cable&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ma

Is there a good case to fit 3x Digital Sputnik DS1?
Asked by: Philipp
Hello Philipp! We do not have a special case for 3x DS1 units. What would be recommended is the DS3+ system, which is 3 light heads plus a PSU, but with the downside of not being able to be battery powered. The other option is to purchase a DS1 dual system, which comes with a hard case, plus an additional individual DS1, which comes with a cut-out foam that can be transferred to a standard hard case bought separately. It would, of course, mean two cases for your set, but it is the advisable way.

question

Can you use this as a key light for Youtube beauty videos?
Asked by: Jesse
Yes you can when diffused or bounced, but I'd say it's a fairly overkill lamp for this use having the ability to make many colours. It's also fairly large.
