    Default Camera light advice.

    Having just got my first 'pro' camera, JVC - DV5001e, I now want some a light.
    Can anyone reccomend what i should go for - money is a consideration.

    Are LED lights really all they are cracked up to be?

    Can most NP1 batteries run a cmaera light up to 50w regardless of batter chemisrty?

    Advice appreciated from a bloke with a new camera who feels like he is at the bottom of a steep learning curve..

    The only led light I have ever seen in use was made by sony I believe it was an info-lithium. If you go that route it'll around $500-700 (USD) I'm not a big fan of on camara lights. I've seen better results with those 8" portable spot lights and bounce it with a board ex... but to each his own....Is your new cam NTSC?

    Yes - odd. The camera is PAL. The reaon i want a on cam light is that i want to do more vox pops and that bit of fill, even head on, gives a better effect. I do most of my stuff for no monetary gain so it's usually me and a friend, getting another to hold a light would be difficult.
