Title: 5 Reasons Why You Need to Convert to LED Lighting!


Main point of blog: To show the benefits of converting from halogen Tungsten globe /HMI/Fluorescent  etc to LED


Intro: What makes a good light? Is it the colour of the light? It’s output? The ability to be modified? Or simply that’s it easy to use? These are all questions that must be considered when buying lights for a particular shoot, and with the current industry constantly evolving with new technology, it is vital to stay ahead of the curve or fall behind. If you’re someone who has become adept at using halogen or tungsten globes, HMI’s or fluorescent lights, here are just a few reasons why you should consider converting to LED lighting!


Arguments:- flicker


  • High CRI/TLCI, more so than older lighting models

    • Spectrometer readings compare LED to fluro

    • Gives a much cleaner and nicer looking image

    • Refer to video by Rio comparing the Ultrasoft LED to standard LED, as well as the DMG Lumiere SL1 to Kino Flo (on google drive)


  • Lower power consumption, less overheating, battery power

    • Gives more flexibility both in the studio and on location 

    • Globes can blow easily and are hard to replace these days


  • More creative options - bi-colour, RGB, effects

    • Gives you full control over your lighting

    • Don’t need to compromise quality


  • More lightweight, transportable, easy to assemble

    • Great for regular use, on the go shooting

    • Less chance of breaking in transit, less issues with transport and set up in general


  • Great for photography as well as video

    • You’re able to use Bowens accessories such as softboxes, snoots, beauty dishes etc for both photo and video

    • Use Bowens mount lights such as Shark, DF-P120 to nail this point home

    • While not a direct substitute for flash lighting, it is a great option for those who do photography as well as video and don’t want to buy separate lights for both jobs

    • Refer to Godox vs Ultrasoft video on Google drive - What are the benefits of each and why one is better than the other in different situations
