Filming at night

Recommended Posts

Yo guys, just getting back into filming again. Is the standard for lighting up spots at night still the generator and the work lights or has something better/different come along that people are doing?

A lot of people like using studio led panels. I've used these quite a bit. Two can definitely light up a spot, although there definitely not the brightest. 

 I can't speak for high end studio led panels, I'm sure there great though

As for personal preference, I like the older halogen studio lights. I use Lowel Tota's. There substantially brighter than the led panels i had,  much better build quality as well.

Thank you man, really dig the LED idea but is a set of 300s strong enough to light up a stairset or handrail?

+1 for led panels

 

though, my buddy’s still all use Honda generators and some flood lights. Not always the best option due to noise and what not but works great for the most part
