light for pd150
 
hi

i am about to purchase a pd150 from b&h photo, and before i order it, i was wondering what type of light i should buy. i am interested in a mountable light for the top of the camera. i am not sure about the price range, so just fill me in on some decent ones (i dont need any hardcore pro lights). about the power source, i am not sure about that either. i am basically looking for a good all around light. let me know some good overall lights and what power source they run on. thanks in advance.

If I were to buy a camera mounted light it would have to have some form of bounce or diffusion. Photoflex, Chimera and Wescott have a run and gun mini softbox setup.

A small combo (120 or 12 volt) fixture would be the most versitile. Try B&H and just run through all of the options.

thanks for the input, i'm still looking around at some lights that B&H has, not sure which one yet. i'll let you guys know when i get down to the finals for my choice, then i can take some more input from you. thanks Bryan for narrowing it down for me
