On-camera light & lavalier...any recommendations?
on Aug 6, 2007 at 5:47:05 am

Hey all.

I just got my GL2 and I'm looking for a quality (but fairly cheap) on-camera light.

Any recommendations?


Also, while I'm at it, any recommendations for a cheap lavalier mic?


Thanks in advance.


Mike

I recently bought a Sima Universal LED camera light (SL-10L) from best buy for $30. It's not the best thing you could use, I sometimes have to use tracing paper to diffuse the light, but for what you'll pay for it, it's totally worth it. It uses an internal rechargable battery, which is nice since it doesn't draw power away from your camera battery. As for Lavs, I don't have a recommendation for a cheap wireless but I got one from Circuit City by Audio Technica, model number ATR35s. It cost me about $30, and it connects via mini plug (which is nice in case you don't have the XLR adapter), and it is a condeser mic powered by an LR44 button battery. The sound quality is very nice, and comes with a 20ft cable.

First, thanks for the input.

I'm looking for something a little more high end than a $30 light and $30 lav though. I don't think something in that price range would be quality enough for what I need it for.

I'm totally lost in this arena as I come from the still photography world and videography is new to me.


Thanks,

Mike
