Apart from the black powder-coated finish, the BabyLED head looks and performs the same as a legacy light allowing you to swap a standard light for a BabyLED or mix them. In fact there’s a retro-fit kit available to convert your old style light to an LED.
On-board local 100-10% dimming means you’ll probably be restricting your scrimming to half-scrims, saving you a lot of ladder climbing. Besides comfort, you’ll be saving on air-conditioning and head running costs in the studio. The BabyLED’s maximum draw is 0.75 – 1.5A as compared to the legacy light’s 1.7A – up to an 80% reduction in energy consumption. This means that you can run double the amount of LEDs as legacy lights without raising the temperature. Let’s also consider the cost and downtime of re-lamping. LEDs last about 50,000 hours and are virtually maintenance-free.
