Picolite Fresnel & Spot projector question
« on: September 03, 2021, 11:05:02 am »

I am wondering if  anyone who is familiar with using the Broncolor Picolite/Mobilite with the Fresnel or Spot Projection accessories for Picolite is able give me any idea of roughly how big the spots are at distances of 1.0-1.5m (3-5ft) for

- a sharply focused spot from the Picolite spot projector without any aperture masks
- the bright central area of the Fresnel spot when its at its its narrowest angle

Thanks

Broncolor did two webinars on the Picolite. The last one was last night.

I only have two Fresnels. The range of flood spot is okay, although since it is such a small source it does not act as a large Fresnel such as a Flooter.

I recently bought a Godox SA 17 projector that comes with a 85mm lens. At 2 m the minimum spot is around .75m yet with an Iris you can narrow that. I use  the S2 Godox mount with a Picolite mounted in the center so that the projector mounts in the Bowens S mount.
Easy enough to do.
The efficiency of Godox projectors though is dismal so you have to push a lot of power through, obviously with the modeling light off.
