Hot Shoe Lighting

Hi All

I have a Sony Z1 what are the hot shoe mount lighting like? because the z1 is bad in low light.

Micro lite are they any good?

I am looking at the HVL series only trouble runs on batteries.

Any tips or advice which one to buy.

Ollie :)

LEDs are probably your best option because they are kinda cheap and they work well.

I bought a Microbeam 128 from Flo Light, and I am very pleased with it.

Cheaper than LitePanels or any competitor around, and it didn't let me down since I had it.

Just grab a few 3rd party camera battery and you are good to go for a few hours depending on the type of battery you bought.

That solution is good if you have limited money.. if you really have some extra bucks, you should also consider LitePanels that are 100% trustable (color temp. and build quality).
