Watch: Lighting Tech Gets Insane and Affordable at NAB 2017

Soon, you're only going to need one light to film an entire production.

We pumped out 85 videos for you this year at NAB 2017. As a reader, this might've been a little overwhelming. To make things easier for you to digest, we're breaking our content down by category.

Last year, we noted that, in terms of technology, lighting products may have made the greatest leap out of any of the major gear divisions at NAB. Our coverage this year suggests a continuation of that trend. Some of the most awe-inspiring gadgets we saw at NAB 2017 were definitely lights—including one that is virtually indestructible, another about the size of a soda can, and an LED that can replicate any hue on the color wheel without the use of a single gel.  

Below is a list of all our lighting videos from NAB or, alternatively, just click play on the playlist up top and let it ride.

No Film School's complete coverage of NAB 2017 is brought to you by My RØDE Reel, Vimeo 360, and Blackmagic Design.

Awesome, thanks for putting this together. It would amazing if you could take it just one step further and include the pricing when available. I LOVE checking out all the new tech but sometimes it's nice to come back down to earth and view the gear that's actually within my budget. Thanks again for covering NAB as I was there but working the entire time and never really got to explore the floor.... :(

I can't wait to get my hands on the COB 300d and the Mini 20d.
