Suggestions for Inexpensive Cold Video Lighting
Posted 21 November 2012 - 11:58
Does anyone out there have ideas about cold lighting for a video shoot. I am not up to date with LED lighting. Are there inexpensive, but somewhat strong, LED lights? Or can we build our own units?
What kinds of lighting for video are out there that are not hot?
The same goes for homemade light boxes, diffusers, reflectors, etc.
All suggestions are welcome!

Fotodiox makes the "Fancier" line and is very affordable. The have some 500 and 1000 LED panels going for $179 and $269 respectively. The 1000 LED panel allegedly has the same output as a 1000W tungsten.
Obviously other manufacturers have options that cost several thousands of dollars.

Unfortunately, many of the items are out of stock. The new LED fixtures are in hight demand...
These may be relatively cool and affordable fluorescent lightings:

The 5600 kelvin seems to be accurate. I like the fact that you can combine several panels to make a big one.
Its also possible to use Rechargeable Sony batteries instead of the AA`s.
Took it outside one night and its like carrying a car headlight in your hand:-)
Just ordered one extra......US $40,- including shipping is cheap.
