Nanlite now has an indie-friendly lighting tube option available with the Nanlite PavoTube.
RGB Lighting Tubes have been everywhere in the last few years. You can’t watch a music video or an action movie without seeing them both in the frame and in the behind the scenes videos.
Well, a light tube gives a nice, soft source that is easy to build into a set, or hide near one, in a simple package.
