LED light and video

->> Hello, I've been working with video and the Mark II for the last couple years and have used window light and reflectors as my main light source when shooting any sitdown interviews, or camera set to AWB when shooting indoors such as churches, or halls with slight colour corrections in FC if needed. I've been pleased with the results.

Lately though, I've been interested in stepping up the variety of light even more for any lighting situations that will come up on future jobs.

I'd like to get real nice portable light for under a grand. I've looked at the ARRI LED kits and they look real nice, but a little pricey.

->> Second the Coollights. I have a couple of the "Divas" and an LED panel. They are incredible lights.

I also have four of these and love them as well.

Good luck.

->> Cool lights are pretty sweet, I just have one right now but looking to pick up a second. I also use a little Lowel Blender and Litepanel Micro.

This is a pretty cool little kit to diffuse and control the LED light.

Couple others Jem Schofield from recommended at one his workshops I attended
