Re: Color right Lumenator Pro

Well happy to report I finally got my Lumenator Pro (ULTRA!) in the mail Friday.

Naturally I ripped it open and read the instructions. FIRST THING...

well maybe not.. but there were a lot of bags to shred open..

the instructions amounted to a URL to a video that you can't get to on their website without knowing the URL.. It was more or less adequate to get things up and running..
a

It is like a big ping pong paddle.. with a small ball head to mount on a light stand (removable) and a velcro strap to strap it to a speed light as a bounce reflector.. The ball head also has a hot shoe flash mount (not electrical) to mount it directly to the camera. Lots of flexibility to mount it however you need it..

there is a dial on the back and a sheet of velcro that you attach to the battery to plug it in to power. An on/off switch to control power. and a POT to control brightness. Feels beefy in my hand, not worried about it breaking when I look at it crossly or if someone knocks the stand over that it's on..

I haven't done much with it yet, but I can foresee me having someone I am doing a head/shoulder shot hold it to light their face..

I am going to an orchid show last sunday of this month. this piece of kit is going with me for that. I'm going to go buy an assortment of flowers and see how it works for that.

It took them TEN weeks to get it to me. I emailed them tuesday of this week and said hey what's the deal your site says 3-4, your emails say 4-5.. and it's 10.. within an hour of me sending that I got a notice from endicina that a package had been posted for me. I can't imagine it was a coincidence that I complained and an hour later it woulda happened without me complaining..

If I like this as much as I think I am going to, a future purchase will happen via amazon instead of direct from the seller..
