  • It is good brand and I am sure that CRI will be according to specs. At least first time (with time all fluos and leds degrade).

  • I plan to build some myself. Would you kind sharing your ideas and take some photos? That would be awesome!

  • from my experience the original KinoFlo fluorescent are rather even 6000k than 5600K. HMI is colder as well. Take care if you mix them with other bulbs.

    I actually built the DYI Kino flows about 2 1/2 years ago strictly for lighting green screen. Anyways here are a couple of videos for you. I have two 6 bank lights shown in the videos, and also the same exact two 4 bank lights. My setup is different from both of these videos as I wanted to use it on a regular light stand in a vertical position as well as a using it on my C stands in horizontal position. When I have some time I will take some pictures and post them.

    Here are some pictures that I took showing the 4 Bank setup. The 6 Bank is setup the same way in terms of hardware so the hardware is exactly the same. I don't have barn doors and painted the 4 Banks white on the inside so that it is easier on the eyes. The 6 Bank is only for the backdrop so I didn't paint it white but may do so at a later time.
