Portable lights for shooting video at a hospital
on Jan 31, 2017 at 3:01:56 am

I want to shoot some video with a Sony 4K FDR-AX-100 in a delivery room as a baby is born, and in the recovery room. I have no idea what the lighting will be like in either location, so I want to attach a light to a Vello bracket to the camera.

I'm also going to be bringing a DSLR so space is going to be limited. The two lights that I am thinking of bringing are:

The genaray LED-7100T is taller but not as wide as the other light

and it has a temperature range of 3200K-5600K

The genaray LED-7500T is wider and not as tall as the other light
https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/884130-REG/genaray_led_7500t_320_lam...
and it has a temperature range of 2800K - 6500K

1. Any general advice for assisting with what I am trying to do?
2. Which of the two lights would be better?
3. Any suggestions for adding diffusion? Just taping some type of diffusion material to the lights?

Thanks in advance.

I realize my question was a bit specific with regards to the equipment. Generally, what is the best way to diffuse these types of lights when attached to a camera in a run-and-gun type scenario? What is the best way to approach setting the color temperature? What do you base it on?

Thanks.

You match the colour temp to the lights in the room.

I wouldn't bother with an on-camera light though, personally. I'd expect a delivery room to be well lit. Even if it isn't, I'd rather have a bit of extra noise than ugly on-camera light.
