Dimming Lights

Anton/Bauer has introduced a dimmer for use with the UL-2 light.
The entire Anton/Bauer light system is modular-- The UL-2 is a seperate base and Head module system. http://www.antonbauer.com/ultralight2.htm

If you want you can add a dimmer to the existing UL-2. The dimmer is based on the wedge system which allows the light to be moved forward (ovecoming any shadows from the lens hood or shotgun mic).
http://www.antonbauer.com/ultralight_dimmer.htm

Since the head module is removable-- you can add an HMI head module.
(The dimmer is not compatible with the HMI head-since the ballast in the HMI requires a constant voltage) The HMI head draws 28 watts of power and outputs 350 footcandles at 3'.

I use a paglight c6 on camera and if needed an arri ( 2X 650W and 3 X 300 W fresnels) setup if required off camera. I use a lot of diffusion, the paglight has a diffusion flip out cover to soften the light and with the arri's I use a softbox and gels as required. This seems to work well and I am very happy with the results.

We use a Frezzi 24w HMI sun gun and it kicks butt. Brightest 24 watts I've ever seen. I also has the mini soft box and gels with it but the kit was expensive, around $800.
