2:16 – ‘We’ve lost 2/3rds of a stop just by going with this fresnel. They Baby baby is a very hot light…’, Both images (Baby Baby and 407) have text that say ‘T5.6 7/10’, I’m guessing that’s a text flub. Not nitpicking, just making sure I’m not confused about what’s being communicated!

      @ryanfreng Hi Ryan, yes so sorry, the Baby Baby is hotter by one stop than the 407 Baby. I will see if I can go in there and change that. Thank you so much for catching this.

what is the CRI ?

    • Nagham Osman    26 days ago

      @ali A color Rendering Index (CRI) is a quantitative measure of the ability of a light source to reveal the colors of various objects faithfully in comparison with an ideal or natural light source.

      @ali High CRI brings out true color. Two light sources might have the same watts but have different CRI.
