Showing some of the latest lights for mobile video makers. These new LED light panels have come down in price and are now being manufactured by this company. Comparable light panels run from $800+, while this company manufactures them for around $200.00 and up. Great deal and great lights to shoot and travel with. Fast setup, fast break down. Love ‘em.
The 126 LED Video/Photo light is available on Ebay for around $56 US (price is less now, this was back in 2010). I purchased from Ebay seller “yespainting”. It took approx. 2 weeks to have the Light delivered to the US East Coast. Light puts out 650 lumens according to the manufacturer. I use the light with my Canon 7D for video and photos and it works great.Also, since the light uses LED’s, it does not get hot. Highly recommended!
I used a Zoom H4 recorder with an Audio Technica Lav mic for the audio in this video, then sync’d using Sony Vegas Pro 9.
This light is a knockoff of the Lite Panels Micro.

The basics of setting up Nikon’s Wireless “Creative Lighting System” using a Nikon D90 and an SB800. With some examples of off-camera flash photos with and without the orbis™ ring flash. The pop-up flash on the D70, D70S, D80, D90, D200, D300 and D700 can all be used to fire Nikon flashes wirelessly, check your manual for details. All of these have a similar setup screen that you’ll see in this video, except the D70 and D80. There’s a Nikon online help topic to find out more here:http://support.nikontech.com/app/answ… Thanks to Anita, the model, from issis.co.nz for her help.
Behind the scenes video of a photoshoot with female model Amber.
This shows the use of one strobe and a large semi-bare light source. In this case, a White Lightning X3200 shot through a 48″ octabank with the front diffuser removed.
I talk about White Lightning and compare the brand with Pro foto.
I talk about the difference in price as well as what to expect.
orbis™ ring flash episode 003 – kickbox shoot
The orbis™ ring flash, available at www.orbisflash.com, in action at a photo shoot of a kickboxer. Includes the advanced tip of using the orbis™ as a small softbox for directional lighting effects at close range.
Look out for episode 004 on orbis™ ring flash techniques, coming soon.
A while back I interviewed Italian fashion photographer Massimo Zanigni, after I’d spotted him posting some very polished, beautifully shadowless photography to the orbis™ ring flash flickr group. It turns out he’s a pro photographer who scored an assignment for a big Italian fashion label, Magilla, shooting none-other than gorgeous Italian celebrity Rafaella Fico. You can read the interview we did here.
The other day, excited to be using his new orbis™ arm, Massimo emailed me to let me know about three behind-the-scenes videos from the Magilla campaign. I thought you’d be interested to see them, so without further ado you’ll find them below. If you’ve ever wanted to know what it’s like to shoot a beautiful model in a stunning Venetial palace with an orbis™, you’ve come to the right place. Bravo Massimo !
This tutoria video teaches you the basics about how to use the flash/speedlight and its exterior controls (tilt / pan for bounce) and interior controls (flash modes) and a lot of demonstration animations. It is written in PLAIN english to help people to understand what a flash have to offer. Yes, you still need to read the user’s manual for detailed instructions and references. Enjoy!

Note: Sorry for the errors in the video about panning, 22.5º is actually 45º, 45º is actually 90º, and 90º is actually 180º.

The basics of using an off camera cord; why you’d want to and how simple they are to connect, with some examples of off-camera cord photos with and without the orbis™ ring flash. Be sure not to miss using the orbis(tm) as a small softbox featured at the end, for directional light that isn’t harsh. Thanks to Anita, the model, from issis.co.nz for her help. Next video, setting up Nikon’s CLS system !
