Everybody needs a good Nifty Fifty.

Okay, this isn't the biggest deal of the season or anything, but the Aputure Light Storm 120d is such a staple among indie cinematographers that we just had to include this. This light features both a CRI and TLCI or 96+, contains 324 luminous chips, provides 14,000 lux at 0.5m, and is relatively lightweight and compact.

You're not really breaking the bank when you're paying full price for this, but getting it for almost 50% off is a great deal. You can get an OctoPad XL now for $19.95.
