Recently I decided to update the lighting in my home office to make it more suitable for editing photos and videos. Before, my office was illuminated with overhead lights and table lamps using “warm white” LED bulbs. As much as I like the look of these bulbs (for they resemble old incandescents), they add far too much yellow and orange to the ambient light of my workspace. I considered replacing all the bulbs, but then my office would look like a hospital. I tried editing in the dark, but then my eyes burned out. Seeking an alternate solution, I came across the MediaLight Eclipse, a bias lighting system specially made for film editors, photographers, and anyone doing sensitive color work on their displays.
Does it work? Did it improve my setup? Check out the video above where I unbox, install, and test it out.
