small portable off camera lighting

Hey guys,
I have a 35mm adapter on my Canon HV30 and therefor when shooting it needs to be a well lit environment.
I do wedding videos, but most of the times at the preparation of the bride, she is mostly in quite dark rooms and because of that I get a lot of grain in my footage.
Now I'm looking for some portable lighting with a dimmer that I can use.
What do you suggest ? Litepanel MicroPro, Comer 1800, ... ?
Any advice would be helpful. Thanks.

I think it's hard to beat the Comer for it's combo of price, performance and portability.

The Comer 1800 would be a great light to be used. If you want it off camera, it can be mounted on any light stand with or without any umbrella adapter. Otherwise, the Comer 900 will be a great small portable light to be mounted no top of the camera.
