    Pretty good find. That ambulance must have lived a pampered life or been from a department with very low call volume. My GF is a paramedic and their ambulances are almost at deaths door themselves...

    Thanks for the heads up. I don't have any of their tubes, but I have eight of the their AX3's and four AX5's. Their system is amazing. Best wireless lights/controls I've ever used.

    Honestly, it's probably quicker, easier and you'll get better results just trying to match them by eye on a good monitor. Do your LED's have +/- green adjustability, too?

    Yeah, some “newer” cams have pretty loud fans to keep them cool. Most of the time, it’s not a big deal, but sometimes you’re in the right situation and it’s audible. About a month ago I was on a...
