Hudson Spider – Unique Foldable LED Inside a Softbox

Developed by DoP Tim Hudson, the Hudson Spider is a soft bi-colour beauty light for cinematographers.

The Hudson Spider has LEDs designed by Light Gear, promising a high-quality light output across the 2600K to 6500K bi-colour range. It has been designed to hold a 3-foot diffuser providing a soft yet powerful light source, with a 400 watt output that can be used relatively close to the actors.

For portability, the unit folds down neatly, with the LED light brackets folding in and out between storage, transportation and setup. It is also compatible with existing Light Gear controllers, convenient for those that own or rent a controller regularly.

The power supply unit for the light is rather large for the 400 watt output, however a 200 watt power supply will become available that can take standard V-Lock and Anton Bauer batteries for a more portable solution.

In regards to pricing, a complete kit will be available for around $6000.00, which also includes a reflector, 1/2 grid diffuser, 1/4 grid diffuser and a ‘magic cloth’ for a very soft light source. The estimated availability time is in October, but this is not confirmed.

For a large, soft and bright light source, will you consider using the Hudson Spider for your next shoot? Let us know in the comments.

Wow That Price is crazy considering all the alternatives. Kind of a gimmicky design too

Amazing Light but very very overpriced it remembers me Canon Cinema Line C300 C300 II. I prefer to get two Cineo HSX or 6 Aputure 300D for the same money.
