A cinematographer's take on the LED takeover. Found this video through a Tom Scott newsletter.

Collector of all kinds of lamps, gear, and fixtures.
My favorite lighting technologies at the moment are incandescent and mercury vapor, and my favorite Big 3 lighting brand of the late 20th century is GTE Sylvania.

About that Westinghouse Lifeguard disease, I think I've caught it. Thanks Eric! 8)

This is really cool movie! Impressed by in-depth technical knowledge of the author. But a cinematigrapher *has* to know everything about light!

Hope neon is not endangered in USA. Here in Astana almost all outdoor neon signs are gone now, except the letters at the entrance of Khan-Shatyr mall. Still some real neon tubes inside here and there. Some pockets of HPS streetlights remain too.
