  1. #1 GROUP BUY - Digital Sputnik DS1 - Pt II 
    EDIT: We've unlocked the full 25% discount!

    Alright!

    I have hinted at this for a few months and it’s finally here! The much anticipated sequel to last year’s extremely successful DS1 group buy. I know that we weren’t able to accommodate everyone last year, due to limited supply so this is your opportunity to get in on an incredible deal and own a pair of some of the most versatile lights on the market.

    For those of you still unfamiliar with the DS1, here’s a short video from Ty Evans explaining how he uses them in his productions.



    I have a set of these lights myself and love how portable and dynamic they are. The DS1 is a 140w RGB-tunable fixture with built-in WIFI that connects directly to the DS DMX app so the user can adjust color, hue, saturation and intensity right from their phone. Each DS1 fixture comes with dual-mounted v-mount plates, which enables the user to run their light for extended periods of time. The DS1 can also be run off a generator or plugged directly into house power.

    The DS1 has a beam angle of 20 degrees and if it’s used without diffusion is considered a hard source, which I find very flexible. It’s easy to soften a light with diffusion but near impossible to make a soft light work as a hard source. The included holographic diffusion filters allow the user to alter the beam angle even further to 34 or 76 degrees.

    Director, DP and light guru Adrien Oneiga is a wizard with RGB lighting and has used the DS1 to great effect in his captivating underwater work. Set to release soon, his project Alchemie used a variety of DS lighting and he’s been kind enough to share some BTS pics with us.

    “What stands out to me about DS lights is the way they transmit a wide gamut of color so efficiently. This allows me to create interesting color combinations by blending the light in an atmospheric way. They do a fantastic job at creating mood.” - Adrien Oneiga



    Digital Sputnik lights aren’t just for owner/operators or small production houses. They were used extensively by Greig Frasier in Rogue One, Jess Hall in Ghost in the Shell and have a new fan in Dante Spinotti, who used them in Marvel’s Ant Man and the Wasp.

    I use my kit from last year’s group buy EVERY. SINGLE. GIG.

    SERIOUSLY.

    As an owner/op, it was a no brainer. Working on medium sized productions now, there are so many situations where having a light you can dial so effortlessly makes all the difference. It can blend with tungsten fixtures, HMIs, SkyPanels, practicals, whatever.

    I have lit so many corporate interviews with just this kit and an early bird Voyager. I lit a throwback 80s themed spot without gels nor a DMX board. Elon Musk wishes he invented this light. It’s just so damn good. Cost is only an issue in the absence of value, and these sons o bitches have seen so many rental days, they practically bought themselves.

    They are not the brightest lights in the world, nor the cheapest, but they’ll always be the tool you reach for first because they always come through for you.

    Get in on this.

    Wow I had no idea these were RGBW -- I always thought they were standard single color white and that there was an optional version that was RGB for more cash.

    GREAT value group buy, Travis, thanks again. Also that video with Workman is one of the best I've seen him in, love his channel.
