Best LED Lighting (Reasonably Priced)?
Hey all, I've got about $1500 to spend on an LED light kit. Prefer daylight balanced (I'll gel to tungsten when needed), battery power available, good output, high CRI...all that good stuff. I want to be able to attach modifiers to it as well. I've been looking at monolights with umbrella mounts (that way I have hard light OR soft light options and usually good output) but they all seem to either be made of plastic, low CRI, loud fan noise, or some other problem. What do you guys like?
I haven't tossed out the idea of an LS1 yet either, but I don't know. I'd like to use it to handle spotlight for dances at weddings but also interviews, which is why the monolight seems like a better fit. Thoughts?
