UNILUX 3000 STROBE LIGHT SYSTEM
For over 35 years, Unilux has been the name for Strobe Lighting in the film commercial business. Unilux lighting systems make it possible to shoot subjects in motion with incredible clarity. Each frame is a clear, sharp photograph.
Unilux lights are most effective for shooting things that pour, spritz, pop or splash. The lights flash for fractions of seconds, providing a cool atmosphere for shooting icy or perishable objects.
Unilux lights can synchronize with cameras like Arri, Panavision, Aaton, Photosonics 4ER and Mitchell. Some cameras may require modification to interface with Unilux lights. Unilux can provide technical assistance in modifying camera of your choice to operated with Unilux lighting.
The color temperature of the lights is 6000oK. Unilux strobe lights can be color corrected by using an 85 or 85-B gel, or the lab can be advised to color correct.
In the preview mode, Unilux lights flash at a consistent rate to appear to your eye as constant light. All exposure reading are taken while lights are in preview mode.
When the camera starts running, the lights flash in sync with the camera shutter, exposing each frame for 1/100,000 of a second. For rotating mirror reflex cameras, the lights flash at twice the rate of the camera speed--one flash for your eye and the other for the film-- so you can see what you're shooting.
Unilux lighting exposes each frame separately. So whether you're shooting at normal speed or high speed you can be sure that every splash, every crunch, every bubble is crystal clear.
This ensures a crisp, sharp picture at all camera speeds. Exposure time of each flash is 1/100,000 of a second.
