Best On-Camera LED Light
on Jan 26, 2011 at 3:05:47 am

Hey guys!

I am now looking for an affordable LED light for my camera, because my camera's low light capability is not that good. I am currently looking at LitePanels Micro, Rotolight, Opteka VL-126 and the Cn-126.

Can anyone help me in making a decision? Which is the best one? I want a bright light with dimmers and the one that flickers the least.

If there are any other lights that I do not know, please feel free to suggest some.

Thanks everyone!!!

Also consider Flolight's Microbeam 128/256.

I have never used one but what i have read about it is impressive.

"The creative person wants to be a know-it-all. He wants to know about all kinds of things: ancient history, nineteenth-century mathematics, current manufacturing techniques, flower arranging, and hog futures. Because he never knows when these ideas might come together to form a new idea. It may happen six minutes later or six months, or six years down the road. But he has faith that it will happen." -- Carl Ally

as we learned in the other forum, you'll have to go with the most expensive option or it aint gonna work, man.

The Litepanel Micro is an excellent overall choice. Also check out this:

This baby has some punch. Works great as a dashboard light in a car scene as well.

I have the Micro Pro and the Flolight 256. Both work great but the 256 puts out more light and runs off camera batteries. The Micro Pro uses AA batteries so it is easier to use in the field. The 256 is also a little bigger.

Isn't "Best On-Camera Light" an oxymoron?
