On Camera Lighting..

I know often debated on the forum..
I had purchased a Litepanels LPMICRO Micro LED on Camera Light.
I thought the light did ok at the house..but really didn't need it as it was well lite.
But once I got to a reception hall found it to not have the right amount of kick that I needed..So what do you think the best on camera light is for the XH-A1? I use to have the blue Frezzi light with my DVX..I thought it was good power..but often times just too bright..I know I can adjust the amount of light..but their wasn't a good sweet spot..
maybe it's something I am doing incorrectly..


any thoughts?

I use a Sachtler 75H Reporter and it is ok, it's good due to being dimmable and also you can focus the light.

I use the Frezzi micro model with a dimmer and the softbox. You may want the larger one. For outdoors, you can put a CTB gel inside the softbox instead of sacrificing the softness for the dichroic filter.
