Using non pro LED lights with HD Camcorder
on Jan 25, 2010 at 7:41:11 am

I'm thinking of buying the Canon Legria HFS 100 and buying the new expensive LED bulbs from Home Depot for a run and gun garage rig.

Will there be a synch issue between the lights and the camera?
If so, should I get a synch box of some sort?

Maybe just wishful thinking and I should just pop for a more expensive LED light for video.
Help/Thoughts?

Thanks,
Sherwood

I don't know of any sync issues but I have found that the less expensive consumer led systems tend to give off a color that isn't as appealing on the skin. I would at least recommend getting something brighter than you'd normally want so that you can dumb it down with Gel and diffusion to get what you want out of it. Buy one and do some tests but keep the receipt in case your not satisfied.
