Small light for Sony Z7 camera
on Sep 3, 2009 at 5:06:46 pm

Hello
I'd like some advise please!
I have just bought a Sony Z7 video camera and i'd like to buy a small, inexpensive light to put on the camera (I work in Africa and often need to lighten dark faces). I'm a one-woman band so a big lighting kit is out of the question.
I've been advised to get an LED light - but have no idea which one.
Does anyone know of an inexpensive but good quality light to use from time to time please?
Thank you, Anna

Anna, go to BHPhotovideo and search for on-camera LED. Set the order, from low to high. And work your way through. Check user reviews for your best candidates. Note battery use, amount of light, daylight-tungsten conversions. If you want "cheap" you will end up with a not very useful unit, I fear.

Check the thread below ("Cheap on-camera light"), which will give info on some alternatives.
