LED lightbars

Mainly involved with smaller scale production video here.

A few weeks ago I was reading an Indi-movie mag and they mentioned several low cost floor based lighting boxes that someone had kludged together. basically a box, several bulbs, and a sheet of opaque white plastic.

This caused me to wonder if anyone knew of an LED floor light that can do white light (not bluewhite) that is already packaged

Would love a battery operated item as I'd like to just toss them down on the floor/ground around the subject. I have googled a bunch of LED lighting places but everything is either not quite right or a build it yourself site. (less than ideal but I suppose I could go all hammer and nails)

Thoughts?

I haven't used them (they are not out yet), but Richard at Coollights has some long-awaited LED fixtures coming out in a couple of weeks that are available in either 3200K or 5600K models, spot or flood. Can run off of AC or 12v DC, such as an AB brick battery. Cheap, too.

The last time I talked to him I believe he said he was shooting for roughly the same punch as a 600w tungsten instrument.

Hi all:

Here is a link to my first user report with Richard's new Coolights LED 600s. They are pretty impressive.

Charles,

I've been using one of the LED from Prompter People with reasonable results. Also,iW Blast TR - by Phillips is being used in some studios. I believe it is adjustable from 3200k to 6000k.

A light weight variable Kelvin instrument is of great interest to me. Hopefully we will see many versions at this years NAB.

As soon as I get more info, I will share it.

Cheers,

Jim

I use the TL-50 by Torchled which works very well. I put it on a mini tripod so I could put it anywhere on the floor. Its great cause of the 1/4 20 threads you can mount it anywhere, with a clamp, on top of camera etc. I bought it off amazon after I saw it in a review. It is Made well and has really bright output better than what I have used in the past. The battery that comes with the unit lasted me over 3 hours, and the accessories that come with it serve justice as well. Neat LED product.
