i need a light for my vx that will light up a skater with not alot of exterior light sources. i dont like the way leds look and can't really drop the money for a frezzi kit. Does the bescor 50/100 look decent?

Moving this to lighting.
The problem I have with the bescor is that they're built so poorly, you can't tilt the head down more than horizontal, and they require huge batteries. The frezzi also requires huge batteries but is at least built well and you can tilt the light down so it's pointed at the skater's feet / board rather than their knees. At the same time, I don't like how the beam is so narrow from them.
What's your issue with LED's though?

That's not really so. Tungsten lights are orangy. LED's are usually pretty close to daylight balanced. Read this, take a look at the second set of images, and maybe you'll change your mind.

If anything, the LEDs are super blue, not orange... They don't throw as far as a frezzi and definitely do not look as good... The only reason people choose over the Bescor/Frezzi is the portability factor... The Bescor or Frezzi is a pain to pack around.

and i only let 2 kids film fisheye cause one used to film and the other is super atrsy and he knows what looks good. my filmer footy actually comes out pretty good.



koston is the osiris of es. he wont leave it, i betcha. es for life for koston, pretty sure.

I've found my LED light looks really decent when it's the main light source, but looks hideous when you're using it with worklights.

I'd say it puts out a blue/greenish tint

It uses VX batteries (you can find high capacity ones on eBay for like $20-$30) and is bright as hell.
