Flexible/foldable LED film lights: Swit

Led lights are the dominating variants right from its introduction especially  in the consumer market and it extended in a way most of the street lights are replaced with LED bulbs mainly because it uses less power and outputs higher luminance.

Digital cinematography had opened up new doors for absolute low light performance with High sensitive sensor and its circuitry.

Cameras like RED Gemini, Sony a7s 2, Panasonic GH5S are exclusively made for filming with low light using higher Native ISO setting like 3200.

LED lights are really a boon to modern film making as it a powerful light source that allows to use even batteries to power the source, light unit became weightless.

But choosing right LED lights is the biggest concern for cinematographers/gaffers because most of the LED  lights has low CRI value which will not give perfect color rendering.
