Wish List: LED Lights

12/23/2014Link10

In the following video, Mia McCormick, from KelbyOne, explores several portable LED lighting options that can help you improve the quality of your videos. She looks at popular on-camera lights from Vidpro, Genaray, and Switronix, noting the number of LEDs, color temperature, brightness, and power options for each model. Also mentioned is the Litepanels Croma, which offers a softer light for close-ups and interviews, and the smartphone-controllable, pocket-sized KICK from Rift Labs, with adjustable full color control and lighting effects. Moving away from traditional on-camera models, McCormick rounds out the video with a look at the FLEX LED from Westcott, a pliable 10x10" mat that can be mounted virtually anywhere. We hope you enjoy the video, and invite you to view the wide selection of other instructional and informative videos at BandH.com.

How will this help my business?  Sometimes when I'm shooting video indoors, I need some help with the lighting!  Right now I supply the light with an old Bescor LED (12x8) LED lights.  Tell me how any change will increase the my lighting experience?  Thanks, Bob Martino

 

 

 

 

Better quality light can help one achieve better quality video.  That being said, it’s impossible to compare lights not knowing what model Bescor you have.  If you are looking to upgrade, higher quality lights will be less likely to have color shift as the age, are less likely to flicker, and might have more features along with more output.  I would suggest sending us an email letting us know what Bescor light you are using, what if any limitations you have found with it, and what you are shooting video of.  We would then be better able to compare some lights with the one you currently have, and make some suggestions that would suit your needs.

The Switronix TorchLED would be perfect if it came with (or offered as a separate accessory) a set of barn doors.
