    Any views on good, lower cost led video lighting would be appreciated.

    The LitePanel range looks good but not too cheap.. I suppose decent light output in both power and good colour range (CRI https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_rendering_index) , flexibility in terems of mains or battery, spot or flood, colour temperature, would all be welcome.

    Take a look at this thread from a few months ago. I use the F&V K4000 daylight panels and have been really happy with them. https://forums.creativecow.net/readpost/47/860701

    This was “pre NAB” so there are probably a lot of new options to consider, but my biggest complaint about NAB (and other shows) is that it seems like companies are more focused on showing/announcing products and less concerned with actually shipping them.

    One other note – I have been using these with Switronix SWXPL90S batteries and I can run these panels at full brightness for just over 3.5 hours. I picked up 3 of the batteries and they fit in the case that came with the F&B lights, along with some gels and 2 small clamp on flags. Makes for a killer little kit.
