For twenty years I was perfectly content using basic portable studio lighting. Then I learned about Dedolights. At first the cost cooled my ardor but once I tried one out I kept buying more. I now have two complete sets, one stationed in Germany (since I do lots of photography in Europe) and another case full of Dedolights in whatever country in the Americas that I am currently working in.

Essential Extra Lights.

The lights come in two basic kinds, with built-in electrical adapter (very expensive) and powered by a power supply unit (more economical if you have several lights, since up to four can operate from the same power transformer). I found it helps to have at least one of the independent units if you have to carry just one, though I find Dedolights so useful I usually have five with me at all times.

I have found that Dedolights are worth their high cost. With Dedolights I can illuminate art objects in a manner that other photographers cannot achieve. Once, in Munich, I competed against a well known professional photographer. In the end I got the assignment (even though I ask a fee twice that of the other photographer) because my lighting did the job better. It was Dedolights that won me this contract, indeed I bought an entire suitcase full of additional Dedolights with the profits.

The features about the Dedolights that I like the most are the framing shutters, the iris and the essential projection attachment. Changing the bulbs is easy, but they hardly ever burn out. I have the 12-volt series. Recently Dedo Weigert has come out with the more powerful 24-volt system.

Coming soon: we will be showing specific studio setups where Dedolights are employed in real-life situations.
