Kino Flo 488-K5-S/6P reviews

4' Kino 800ma 525 Green SFC Colored Lamp (6 Lamps) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Tool in the Right Situation!! Just as the Kino-Flo website warns, this is a fantastic way to get a clean key as long as your talent is not standing on a cyc wall for a full length composite. You will get great saturation with the tradeoff being you will have A LOT of spill. If you have the space to move the talent away from your green screen then these are a must buy. Otherwise just light with Tungsten (K32) Also, I only needed 2 bulbs in my 4ft 4 bank to get the saturation I needed (so I had 2 green bulbs and 2 K32's in the 4 bank) If you order 6 of these you should be plenty equipped for basic Green Screen shoots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes a Green Screen Pop I used these with two Kino-Flo Tegra banks, and a Lastolite 10x12' Green Muslin background. The green lamps made the green screen pop. With a consumer Sony camera (ie not a good camera for chroma-key), I was able to key the video in Sony Vegas, selecting Pure Green Screen, and with NO changes to the low threshold values. The high threshold had to be brought down slightly. Lights were set 7' from the screen. I moved as far as 10-12' from the screen. An issue I had was with green light reflecting off walls and items on the sides of my studio. To reduce that I had to move further from the screen. A better hair light would help with the key as well. If you have a pro camcorder, these lights may not be necessary. I would not use these lights if you have limited space in the studio. The coated tubes are a nice feature. They feel more durable. None of 12 I received were defective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very solid Personally I would never buy a kino tube without the protective layer. Loght quality is excellent for it's use.
