Dedolight Bi-Colour Felloni TURBO

LED light sources are still relatively new in our business and as the market becomes saturated with fixtures, choosing a reliable system can be a bit overwhelming.

I work daily in news environments with sometimes very tight deadlines. A lot of my work is broadcast live, so it’s important for me to have lights that deliver full spectrum colour reproduction straight out of the fixture; no time to grade.

My go-to lights for sometime has been the Dedolight High Bright Felloni.
They have been around for a few years now and the bi-colour version has become tremendously popular with mobile crews.

FELL-1

New in the Dedo line-up is the TURBO Felloni.

The Turbo Felloni is amazingly, 5 times brighter than the original high-bright Felloni; believe me, it’s super bright. With an impressive TLCI of 95 there’s need for green/magenta correction that many other LED panels still require.

In the photo below, I’m using just one Turbo Felloni to light an interview shot against a window on a sunny day. In the second photo another crew have to use two generic LED panels to achieve an acceptable exposure; but still it wasn’t as bright as my one Turbo Felloni.

FELL-COMP

Using the Turbo un-diffused outdoors in daylight releases it’s full potential.
It’s incredibly bright and makes skin tone really pop on a flat dull day; absolutely perfect.

Pictured below is a journalist during a live stand-up. The sun is on the right of frame, look how well the Turbo Felloni fills the left side of her face in full daylight.

FELL--LOB

On overcast days the colour temperature of the sky is very high and faces tend to have a slight blue cast; people don’t look healthy. Adding a good quality light source like the TURBO Felloni on days like this make colours rich again and bring back good-looking flesh tones. People are genuinely saying to me, they look so much better when I use the new Felloni Turbo.

Powering options:

Twin vlock Felloni

The above Twin V-Lock battery adaptor is great for long running times on outside broadcasts, etc.  One of the newer breeds ‘high wattage’ V-Lock 12 volt batteries will do for more general shooting. The Turbo can also be powered from the on-board DC adaptor (supplied).

The older high bright Felloni was good, but the new Felloni TURBO is truly amazing; it’s a must have light!
