Good lighting is key in helping improve the production value of your videos, but getting pro level equipment is very pricey. Litepanels are the drool worthy LED lights that caught the eyes of ENG photographers and new media focused content producers like TWIT and Mahalo that turned to litepanels for low power consumption and low heat producing lighting.
Litepanels LP Micro Pro
Litepanels are the original and the the lights that the pros use, but they come at a price.
Sima SL-20LX Ultra Bright Video Light
These Sima lights are one of the most affordable options and what I personally recomend. I’ve seen several people use them and for under 30 bucks it worth a shot.
Switronix TL-50 30w Dimmerable DC Powered LED Light Fixture 5600k
The Switronix is a competetor to the Litepanels and is priced and aimed to pros. It’s a little pricey like the Litepanels, but has really good battery life and puts out a lot of light.
Flashpoint Shoe Mountable LED 70 Video Light with 4 Leaf Barndoor.
This is a larger LED light with adjustable barn doors for focusing the beam of light. Seems like a good bargin at 70 bucks, but I haven’t heard much from people that have used the light.
