The Magilight was an Indiegogo project for a light stick for light painting. The Magilight not only produces swirls of colored light, but via an SD card, can actually "paint" BMP images that you produce on your computer. Many images are also included with the unit and more are available through the Magilight Facebook Page. Jim and Fred take the Magiilight out for a trial run and we want to thank our volunteer model, Scarlett Dawn (www.modelsociety.com) and Jason Hahn for allowing us to use his new Cypress Creek Studio for many of our test images. You may purchase your own Magilight for $299 ($100 off) at https://www.fotorgear.com and also on Amazon at https://goo.gl/aFsVV6 also for $299.
Hope to see you in Rapid City end of September!
