Hey, im looking to do some videos, under little light, can anyone recommend me a solid on camera continuous light? Reliable and preferably wont break the bank. What are all of you that do videos in clubs using?

I don't do club videos but I bought some fotodiox 144 leds and I love them. they are the exact same light as the 144 ikan but for way less money I bought the all 5600k instead of the variable temp (new version) but they are fairly cheap on amazon. For the price I think they are great I am sure there are better higher quality leds but for the money this is a great buy

5600k

I'm guessing the OP already bought a light, and maybe wore it out by now.

The thread is two years old. :)

Install an IR illuminator to your camera . It will help you get a clear video even in complete darkness.

I have the Litepanels on camera light and its expensive but nice and reliable over many years. I've also used the Newer-160 which seemed great for the price(maybe 40 bucks).

I use an Opteka branded one from Amazon, I paid around 60 for it. You can probably find one for around 30-40 now. The build quality might not be the best on the cheaper ones.
