On-camera light for use outdoors at night
on Jul 22, 2011 at 3:58:03 pm

I'm looking for an on-camera light for use outdoors at night for my HMC-150. I have seen many suggestions/threads for lights, but I'm not sure which ones would be good for nightime lighting. I'm not even sure what makes a light good for nighttimes lighting, but i figured someone here might have an idea.....

If you want something very affordable, you should take a look at the LED lights from CoolLCD.com. They are light, bright, modular, can use rechargeable battery packs, and low cost.

Have a look at the Lowel Blender 3000-5000K http://www.lowel.com/blender But it's still LED and that's just not super for TV production because of the Color Rendering Index

Checkout Alzo Video's on-camera lights. We have the 790L. It's flexible, dimmable, comes with various filters and the price is very competitive. And it works off-camera, too. It's handy when you need to hide a light in a car or on a set.

I think I've decided on the Comer 1800 light. I do have a question about color temperature with on-camera LED lights. The Comer does 4500 and 3200 but other lights have a greater range of temepratures. That said, I'm not sure I need that range. I'm thinking long term here and maybe I would need the range that something like the Ikan Multi-K gives.


Any thought on this matter would be appreciated!

Do you know the CRI on that sungun.. DON'T buy a sungun under CRI 80.

I never use LED light under CRI 85.

Indeed check on CRI, smaller cheaper LEDs tend to spike sharply on the green channel inherently... you can always gel to color correct it, but you will drop the light output a bit.
