Softbank Series D Kits
Softbank Series D Kits are designed for use with modern digital video cameras. The total wattage has been reduced for these more light sensitive cameras with no loss of control or light quality. ARRI Fresnels with their wide flood to spot ratio are easy to control and the Video Pro XS Softbank is great for interviews and the ideal size for tight locations. Try using a piece of opal or frost in the filter frame on the Fresnel to completely fill the Softbank and reduce the light level.
Choosing an ARRI Lighting Kit
The best kit for your application depends on your production needs and artistic preferences. Ideally the kit should offer flexibility to work in many different situations. You'll want to consider fixture types, total wattage and the size and weight of the kit. If you need softer lighting you should look carefully at the kits containing Chimera Softbanks. The first step is to determine what light source best suits your needs.
