Dedo Weigert [dedoweigertfilm.de] is the inventor of the renowned Dedolight, and even getting him to talk about his own products is a veritable lighting masterclass, as he is so enthusiastic about helping people to get the best out of them. Although all his tips relate to his own lights, there is a lot of good advice in our video that can be applied to any lighting set up.
The classic Dedolight is one of the most useful lights in the business – we own two as part of our lighting kit. It is fairly small, can be used as a spot or flood, the lamps are cheap and last for ages, and the fixture is very tough (Dedo showed us one that had been run over by a German Police van and it was still working). It is also weatherproof – as anyone who has ever seen Jonathan Harrison [lightingmatters.tv/] dunk one in water during his seminars will testify. The Dedolight range has expanded considerably over the years, with a nice range of softlights and a neat new LED on-camera spot/flood light.
