Cineo Matchbox—a Portable Ultra High Quality Light Source with Optional Battery + new Cineo Lightblade
It’s on sale, it’s discontinued, I have six of them—I adore the light quality. Three are installed in .
The one catch for battery usage is the overpriced $99 bracket which is needed to attach a Sony NPF battery—it ought to be included. But with that bracket, I can carry the Matchbox in the field, which I used for subtle fill light in this stitched image. Don’t forget batteries.
But I now have a new interest in a newer Cineo offering, more on that below.
Below, this image used the Cineo Matchbox for subtle fill light. The beauty of the Matchbox is in its field portability and battery powered operation and 1% to 100% continuously variable flicker-free light that nearly matches sunlight.
The new Cineo Lightblade
I wrote to Cineo asking for a demo unit of their new Cineo Lightblade. It looks like something I could really use for for my office and perhaps for my van—I always seem to have too little light when I want it. I have some hope of being able to evaluate one:
Let me talk to the powers that be on my side. Not sure if you heard the news, NBCUniversal acquired Cineo Lighting. Let me see what we can do as we have a lot of changes and process we are managing. I will follow up with you.
Hopefully the new process will sort itself out and get me a Lightblade to evaluate.
