Love my Rifa 44 and 55.
I use them on lots of interview shoots.

Now that you have got some good lights the next thing you will need is a decent monitor so you can really what's going on: I've just bought a Marshall: it never stops does it!

Looking forward to that drink :-)

As promised. Some screen grabs from a shoot. In standard definition (it's what the customer wanted).
Rifa with 5500 bulbs on right of camera.
Cool Lights LED600 with colour correction gel on left.
It's a bit shiny but the make-up artist was on holiday ;-)

Very nice, how would you rate the output of the Flos vs. Tung? I have 2 88's that I'm thinking of converting for a particular place that I shoot a lot that has ton's of sunlight coming in, but also some very dark corners behind the subject that I would like to light better.

Jerry,

I have a RIFA88 that I've been using for about a year now. Here's a tip...

You can purchase 1 -> 2 socket adapters for the unit. Basically, these are designed for home use so that you can put 2 bulbs where one would normally go. I end up daisy chaining these in my Rifa88 with the FLO-3 fixture so that I can get 6 or 7 CFLs in there. The unit still stays cool, I still draw less power than I would with the tungsten, and the light output is obviosuly over double what I would get from just the 3 CFL lamps.

I've taken pictures of this, and I'll try to run them down.

[Edit]

Couldn't find the old one's so I just shot two quickies...

-P

I honestly don't know. The advantage of using the flos, to my mind, is being able to mix them with daylight. I haven't tried comparing them with tungsten in the dark.

The photometrics of both are available right on the Lowel Rifa page.
