Lowel’s new Prime Power LED 800 continuous light is now shipping. It joins the Prime LED series with the 200 and 400 models, and offers nearly twice the output of the 400 model with 126-foot candles at 9-feet.
The Lowel Prime Power LED Model 800 retails for $3895; however, street price is currently $2784.95 here at B&H Photo.
The Flashpoint DG600 300w/s monolight is an Adorama exclusive from its in-house Flashpoint brand. Priced at $199.95, the light resides in the budget lighting category; however, it has one key feature that really sets it apart from other budget monolights – an LED modeling lamp. [click to continue…]
The Flaspoint 500C LED dimmable light is a rather compact and affordable LED solution from Adorama. The light features 500 individual LED bulbs – 250 of which are daylight balanced and 250 of which are tungsten balanced.
The two sets of LED bulbs are controlled by two independent dimmer knobs. As a result, you have a fully dimmable light and a variable color temperature light. Both are pretty cool features for a $200 video light. [click to continue…]

Switronix has introduced a new on-camera continuous light – the Torch LED Bolt. The new light offers 200w-equivalent of continuous light while drawing only 22w. It’s halogen light power in LED form. [click to continue…]
Check out this $56 Coleman LED lantern kit, which breaks down into 4 separate LED lights with rechargeable batteries.
Of course, Coleman designed this as a camping accessory; however, it looks like it could work well as a compact remote light setup for video. Obviously, it’s not for everyone, but if you are looking for a DIY light kit for your budget videos, this might fit the bill.
Check out the video below where the guys from Cameratown give it a go. [click to continue…]
