LEDs are here to stay. Not only they provide even colored light, but they are super energy efficient and they never burn out. Let's see what' affordable alternatives of LED lightning are available for your digital cameras today.
Want to see what a big difference using a LED lighting accessory can offer while using it with a digital camera or video cam? Check out this piece over at DSLR News Shooter illustrating the lighting effect one can achieve with two cheap generic LED lights, as shown by the still and video work of photojournalist, Dr D J Clark.
The Blender These are great for photo or even vide making. It's really great that you can quickly mix twin arrays of high CRI LED's for great and natural looking frames, that will look filled and even. You can mix and match the color temperature for the perfect effect.
LEDs by Manfrotto These new line of LED lights provides a singular light source for both video and stills, including HD capable DSLR's and camcorders. The ability to provide continuos light while also working as a high powered flash is a plus. The series ranges from the super economy model of the Pocket Series, to the complex capability of the professionally oriented Maxima.
Flashpoint 160 FPVL 160 These are great for onboard camcorder lighting on a budget. We like that the light source is dimmable and the base is shoe mountable. You can run the light source for 2.5 hours continuously on a fresh set of batteries. It comes with a LED battery status indicator and fluorescent, amber and diffuser panels for great effects.
