I'm looking for an on camera LED light for run and gun exterior interviews, (camera about 5-6 feet from subject), and/or as a quick eye light. I'm looking for opinions from users with experience with different brands. It will be used with an HDX900 using Dionic A-B batteries.
[Mark D'Agostino]"Hi Jason, Closer to $200, but could go to $400"
Mark, you should check out the Switronix TorchLED Bolt
I bought one a few months back and I love it. $300 bucks. I have used the Litepanels Micro a few times and, frankly, it's crap. No comparison as far as output. The TorchLED is way brighter, with a much longer throw, is dimmable and has daylight and tungsten colored LEDs, so you can pick your color temp or blend them as needed. It also comes with a D-tap cable for power.
