    Default LED Panel lighting

    I have always struggled with taking photos and videos mainly getting the lighting right and getting reflections from the shiny finish..and now it looks like my problems have come to an end with this latest toy..it was delivered a couple of hours ago and my first experiments with it are very favourable...Ill try and do a video with it next week and see if it improves the quality.

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    I use six of those in my photo booth Ken. I like them because they are more compact than the regular light boxes. When it comes to good photography you can never have enough light.

    I agree Chuck...the better the lighting the more you can see as well I've just been fitting and gluing a neck to the body wich takes a bit of careful masking and scraping away the finish, and i had the light panel on using it as a bench top light mounted up above my head it worked great far better than my usual daylight bulb angle poise desk lamp ... so I think i'll now get another one to fit over my other bench or lathe .

    That’s a gorgeous uke - it will make it’s future owner very happy.

    Sorry to go off topic, but what is going on with that two piece bridge?

    two piece saddle ..is so that the Uke can be used with low G tuning or Re-entrant tuning ..you just put the small saddle in the correct slot.

    I also use those same Neewer LED panels. Much cooler running and smaller than my old 8-bulb video lights and great for small jobs in tight quarters. I do miss the softboxes as these panels lose too much light if you add diffusion. Yeah, that is a great looking 'ukulele!

    Thanks for the mention of the panel lamp, Tim. I immediately ordered one, plus a tripod, which is needed in order to use it. In fact, in my opinion, it should be supplied with one. It does give an even, adjustable light.
