    CRI =95? Color spikes?
    Each separate fixed color temp strip needs only a power source. A dimmer is optional. Variable strips always need a controller so you can set the color temp. There are professional dimmers and controllers made for film/video work that will work great with these. I'm testing budget options to find one that's more affordable. I think I'll be able to get them for ~$50.

    CRI95, no color spike. Really beautiful light.

    Want me to add you to the list?

    I don't understand the boom/china ball set up: is the strip taped to the china ball on the outside?

    You wrap the light around something inside the lantern. One common option is to use a Lantern Lock lantern because it's got a 5/8" spud you can attach to most anything.

    I have been experimenting with several LED chips with a CRI of 90, 93, and 97. Unfortunately CRI in itself isn't that great since certain colors are more important for skin tones and such than others. That being said my CRI 97 chips are closest to tungsten from my tests so far. All of the LEDs I have tested are having trouble with purple colors. Have you run any color tests with these chips?

    I'll be posting the tests this week. I'm not typically a fan of LED lights because of the skin tone problems. I'm very satisfied with these strip lights though. I'm using them throughout the rest of my film.

    Is the plan to present power options/dimmers etc that work well with these?

    Would be helpful to know where to get the accys before joining the Group buy.

    Thanks

    if these are as good as you say and we can see some good tests I will take 2 variable strips and accessories when you have a list.

    thanks for organizing
