On April 16, Profoto introduced two new HMI lights to our line of continuous lights sources: ProDaylight 200 Air & ProDaylight 400 Air. We wrote a short post about it yesterday, and if you want to know all there is to know about it, you should definitely check out our new webpage dedicated to the subject.

Today, we present the first video and the first batch of images we have seen shot by someone who does not work at Profoto, using the ProDaylight 400 Air. The man behind the camera is Gordon Andersson – freelance photographer and professional blogger in Stockholm, Sweden.

The video was filmed with the Nikon D800, 45mm PC-E, f/2.8, 1/50s and iso 200. The images was shot with the same camera, but instead of using the lens, Gordon decided to shoot through his large format camera, f/5,6-8, 1/30s and iso 800. (See video below.) The result speaks for itself.

Also, the fact Gordon’s video is like a moving portrait is a beautiful demonstration of how the ProDaylight units blurs the line between still and moving images. Thanks for for sharing, Gordon!

    I was hoping to see something that Trevor and Faye Yerbury might be using (they love using a cine light with frensel screen). instead I am shown a large format camera and a couple of younger Beatle look-alikes????
    so what does this new light look like? How does one aim it without a handle of stand fitting?
    Do the numbers 200, 400 and 800 refer to the wattage output?
    Are these new lights hot or cool in operation?
    Are the bulbs owner/purchaser replaceable?
    Can I use them for portrait with a reasonable depth of field or do they require apertures of around F1.8 down to F1.4 at a distance of say one metre?
    If you send me a pair of these new lights I’ll make you a video film to be proud of and put it on YouTube, plus I’ll put fifty superb images on Facebook of exactly what they can do – no messing!
    I’ll even do this for nowt, assuming the lights are up to the task And I can keep them afterwards.

    Earlier this year, Stockholm-based photographer Gordon Andersson created a series of moving (literally moving) portraits with the help of our continuous light source ProDaylight 400 Air. In case you missed them, the videos are still available here. [...]
