Dedo Weigert Film GmbH, owner of the DEDOLIGHT trademark.

Dedo Weigert Film GmbH is an internationally renowned and award-winning maker of lighting equipment for film, TV and still photography.

Dedo Weigert Film GmbH was founded in 1965 as a film production and camera rental company by Director of Photography Dedo Weigert of Munich, Germany. Today, it is known as the maker and distributor of the much renowned DEDOLIGHT® lighting systems for film, television and still photography.

The first DEDOLIGHT was built in 1984 with the original concept evolving out of Dedo Weigert’s experience as a Director of Photography since 1963. The first DEDOLIGHT product, although initially built in only one version and size, soon became the single best selling lighting instrument for professional motion picture, television, still photography, and architectural uses worldwide.

By 1990, DEDOLIGHT and its revolutionary optical principle of the dual lens concept had so successfully established itself as a well known standard in the international film community that it earned the Technical Achievement Award from the Oscar Committee of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. In just a few years, DEDOLIGHT had established itself as a significant creative contributor to a long list of motion pictures by top Hollywood professionals.

Today, DEDOLIGHT continues to build upon its long list of credits in film, television and still photography and continues to build upon its extensive range of luminaires and system accessories. The unique control capabilities of DEDOLIGHT, along with its low projected heat and minimal current draw, also make DEDOLIGHT the ideal choice to light the world's finest galleries, museums, and architectural sites.

Dedotec GmbH is Dedo Weigert Film GmbH’s sister company. Based in Munich, it is known for its technical know-how. Dedotec is responsible for technical development, for prototypes, production and service for many of the DEDOLIGHT precision lighting instruments and other optical, electronic and optoelectronic devices.
