Arri's Awesome L-Series LED Fresnels

Working in TV, I’m a big, big fan of Arri lighting.  The instruments produce great light and are well built.  I use them whenever I can.  


Arri continues that tradition with its new L-Series, a LED fresnel. 


The usually spot-flood focus is still available.  The L-series fixtures also behave like a fresnel should behave, producing a lovely beam of light.  The low power draw means location shooting just got a lot easier.  On-board adjustments really make stand-alone operation a breeze.  There’s a knob to adjust the dimmer (no more rolls of ND), a knob to adjust color temperature (no more rolls of CTO and CTB), and a knob for +/- green (further saving rolls of gel and headache).  


There are three types  - a tunable daylight and tungsten fixture, as well as a RGBW model.  Each have their applications.


The fixtures can also be controlled via DMX and run through a console, a more preferable option in a studio environment.  


LED fixtures have come a long way recently, and the L-Series proves that trend.
