If you find yourself in a location with little room and need to add light to the scene, Blind Spot has two options to consider. The Scorpion 2 and Tile lighting fixtures are extremely small and can run off a single Sony NP-F compatible battery.

Scorpion V2

The Scorpion V2, which we covered back in February, builds upon its predecessor with an increased power output (from a smaller unit) and higher TLCI of 94, which should make for more flattering skintones.
