Hey DVi,

I tried the LP Micro and it didn't work out... I'm using an XL2 and I'm still trying to find an on camera lighting solution.

If you have a solution (versatile indoor/ outdoor) your happy with please share it with me.

Thanks,
Mike

I hacked (i.e., DIY) my own LED onboard camera lights (and battery pack) seen in this video: YouTube - My big rig camera... and my scalloped guitar... and my workout routine

The lights are 600 lumens which is a tad too bright for close-up interviews, but go well with everything else, including outdoor fill-light.
