Kino LED (Kino Flo Select LED)


Kino Flo Select LEDs were two of the most exciting new lighting fixtures at IBC. Frieder must have bitten his lip when he first showed them to me and I said, “Oh, wow–Kino LEDs.” Because they look like the very familiar classic Kino Flo fixtures, but have smooth, soft Celeb-like LED illumination instead of fluorescent tubes.

There will be two models: Select 30 (40.5 inches long, 12 lb) and Select 20 (26.5 inches long, 10 lb). Both are a mere 3 inches deep and 13″ high. A nice thing is you can put them in the trunk of most cars, which you can’t always do with a 4′ 2-bank or 4-bank fluorescent (48″ wide +).

The selects have continuous dimming, variable color from 2700K to 6500K, and Green/Magenta control. I think it covers the equivalent of full plus or minus green gel.

So…the Select 30 is about 1/2 the weight of a Kino Flo Celeb 401, with the mounting, built-in protective barn doors and shape that gaffers and DPs know and love.

More specs and details to come.

    Can you help me understand how these differ and pros/cons vs their Celeb 201 and 401?
