Thanks Takey. The Comer 1800 does make a big difference on the skin tone. Some thing to consider.

Comer is 4500K which gives a good balance in between. I found out this 4500K color temp makes skin tone pops out nicely. Other 5600K lights has to put gel to lower the color temp, and at the same time, decreae the light output.

I have these posts with some videos you can see it yourself.

Why would you use the Litepanel Micro indoors without the supplied filter to convert it to 3200K?

I did. I use the 1/4 CTO filter to shoot. otherwise the light is too "blue" to be used indoor. I can't use the diffuse filter or the full orange gel for obvious reason: the light output decreases dramatically if I use those 2 filters.

Has anyone had any experience with using the Comer 1800 where you've got sun light spilling in? Say in a daylight situation where you're next to a window? The 4500K seem like it might make it difficult in these situations.

Thanks,
Garrett

Garret, I find that the 4500k of the light is rather flattering when mixed with outdoor lighting. As it's a bit warmer in color temp, especially on skin tones. It's not really a huge difference that I can see, but does give a nice separation to the image.

I find that the 4500k is a nice middle ground when mixing outdoor and indoor lighting, and I even like the look of it indoors under tungsten lighting without the color correcting filter applied. Personal preference I guess.

Thanks Michael,

Do you have any screen grabs showing this? I'm considering the Comer 1800 for roving interview shots. For the sit down have a full light kit but that doesn't do me much good when we're on the go. I'm going to be doing a series of interviews soon that will require me to be walking with the subjects inside a warehouse that has several windows.

Thanks,
Garrett
