LED TUBES…A LOT OF BANG FOR THE BUCK!

LED Tubes are a fairly new to the film and video lighting market. They are extremely popular because they are lightweight, highly versatile and priced right…in other words, you get “a lot of bang for your buck.”

Several manufacturers make them. However, the most popular LED tubes we sell are produced by Quasar Science. All of the Quasar products are popular. They include: Quasar T8 Q-LED tubes (tungsten or daylight), Quasar Q-LED T12 Cross Fade (tungsten/daylight bicolor lamps), Quasar Rainbow RGBX lamps with full-color creativity and control from 2000K-6000K, plus the Quasar Q-LED Bicolor Battery Operated LiOn tubes.

Coming soon is the Quasar XMD Digital Super Cross Fade Tube, a wireless fully-integrated wireless version of the original Q-LED Cross Fade. We are currently taking preorders for this product. No shipping date has been determined; however, they are forecasted to begin shipping sometime winter, 2019.

quasar-science-qled-r-rainbow-led-lamp-with-rgbx-4ft-2The Quasar Q-LED T8 lamps are an amazing value for the price. The product is dimmable and available in either daylight or tungsten, in either a 30W 4’ tube for $75 or 15W 2’ tube for $45! The lamps are ballasted, flicker free and outperform halogen, plasma or HMI sources.

The Quasar Q-LED X T12 Cross Fade lamps are a bicolor adjustable LED lamp available in 1’, 2’, 4’ or 6’ models. Product is also dimmable, flicker free and self-ballasted, and is a variable color replacement for the T12 2’ or 4’ fluorescent lamps. You’ll save a lot of money on replacement lamps as each lamp has an average run time of 25,000 hours. Lamps operate as a single tube or can be ganged together to create a large light source by purchasing the optional Modern Studio Fluorescent Lamp Holder, Quasar Plate Quad 2 or 4 Tube Holder, or one of the Kino Flo Q-LED housing systems.

The Quasar Rainbow RGBX lamps give you unlimited options in terms of color, temperature and control as they can be controlled wirelessly. Product also includes a number of built-in lighting effect options, making the Rainbow an extremely creative and versatile product.

Don’t have access to power? The Quasar Q-LED Bicolor Battery Operated LiON tubes, in 7”, 12” or 24” lengths, are a great choice. Just press the button to switch from 3000K to 5600K soft light. With magnetic feet, product can be mounted on location, in studio or on an equipment cart. Fully rechargeable battery runs 4 hours with a full charge.

Filmandvideolighting.com–The Store The Pro’s Can Count On

When it comes to online sales, BarnDoor Lighting Outfitters is getting great "customer accolades" !

Barn Door Staff

Our customers tell us that BarnDoor Lighting Outfitters aka http://www.filmandvideolighting.com, is the web store they can count on for great products, great service and great prices. That's music to our ears, and we appreciate their feedback!

When customers buy their gear and supplies from our web store: http://www.filmandvideolighting.com, we're most often told their experience is "great", "fast" and "easy" to use!  We agree, but we don't take their comments for granted.  We are continuously researching the latest technology and making improvements to our sales site to improve their shopping experience. There is always room for improvement, and we continually strive to do just that.

Customers also tell us they we are "the lighting experts", offer a "great product selection", and "great prices". We agree! BarnDoor Lighitng Outfitters is owned and operated by an experienced gaffer, and has been selling on the web since 1995. BarnDoor Lighting offers a wide selection of quality products at different price points from the industry's leading manufacturers. When it comes to our "great prices", we sell our manufacturer's products as competitively as possible, to pass along the best value to our customers.

The folks at BarnDoor Lighting Outfitters love new technology; however, any new technology added to our site must support our primary goal of providing our customers with "personalized" customer service.  If not, we won't add it.  For example, we don't currently offer live inventory.  The reason–we want to maintain our ability to be nimble and flexible–to ship merchandise from our own warehouse, or that of our manufacturers' if it means getting the product to our customer faster or at a lower shipping cost. Live inventory would inhibit our ability to do that and take the "personalized" decision making away from our customer service staff.  Also, if customers see zero or limited inventory for a particular item, they might decide not to order the item or not realize that we can ship the product overnight because our manufacturer has it in stock, or that the stock is arriving in our warehouse that afternoon. 

But don't take our word for it, here are some of the online comments our customers have left for us. 

"Great website, great service and great prices"

"Best equipment, price and quality options online"

"Tony says, "They'rrreee Grreaattt!"  (we love this one)

"Great site! Very easy to navigate and even better prices"

While BarnDoor Lighting Outfitters is definitely 5-Star, we aren't perfect and neither is current web technology or internet communications.  If there is ever a customer concern, we will do our very best to fix it.  We also take pride in responding to our customers concerns.  Not a BarnDoor Lighting customer?  We would love you to be!  Give us a try. We have a terrific customer rewards program, featured on our website.

Keeping Your Lighting & Grip Gear In Top Condition Can Really Pay Off

If you're like most production professionals, you've made a significant investment buying quality lighting and grip equipment for location, studio, stage, TV, product marketing, communications, special events or for your rental business, etc.  While the gear we sell from all of the top manufacturers, including:  Arri, American, Kino Flo, Mole-Richardson, to name a few, is of the highest quality and considered "work horses" in the industry, even the best gear sometimes needs replacement parts.  Instead of putting the stand or light fixture on the side lines and not benefiting from your investment, you can purchase replacement parts to get your gear back into production, on the road, or on the truck. 

Barn Door Lighting stocks a wide variety of replacement parts for lighting fixtures and stands, including: Knobs, screws, accessory holders, latches, sockets, lenses, lamp holders and much more.  Not sure what you need, give us a call, and we'll help you find the parts you need to get your gear working like new. 

If you don't see a part you need on our website, just give us a call.

With Barn Door You Get More!

The Easiest Gels To Use With LED Lights!

We've all encountered the problem when trying to use standard lighting gel / filters with LED lighting fixtures…how to adhere them? 

Paper tape…yea that will work, but it's time consuming.  Or you might think about using clothes pins? Nope that won't work as most LED light fixtures don't have Barn Doors. The typical gel frame? That's no good…LED lights don't have them either.  However, many LED lights do have an accessory holder that is very handy if you have one or more of the filters that are sold by the LED manufacturers, such as Lite Panels, but they are pricey and the choices are limited. 

Another excellent, reusable and affordable option is to purchase the semi-rigid gel filters that are made for use with LED's — Lee Zircon or Rosco Opti-Flecs

 

Lee-zircon-filters

 

 

Rosco-opti-flecs-led-lighting-gel-filters-semi-rigid-1.jpg

Both brands are terrific and much more cost effective. They both offer a variety of diffusion, minus green and CTO / amber for balancing LED color.  Custom colors can be ordered as well. These gels last 200X longer because they resist fading (which is common with standard gels), and are they very durable due to their thickness…more than double the thickness of standard gels.  Most importantly, they aren't flimsy and can be easily handled and stored, then reused making your job much easier.

Be ready for your next production…learn more about Lee Zircon and Rosco Opti-Flecs
