Ditto on Doug Jensen's lighting tutorial. I have been using a Litepanels Sola 3 Fresnel as a single light in a pinch. Wonderful creation, and it works nicely on outside interviews.

Tutorials pay for themselves very very very quickly.

For what it's worth, my "go to" backpack lighting kit includes a RIFA 55, a Prolight, a few CTB gels and diffusion, three collapsible reversible 5-color reflectors, a few stands, clamps and things, and two dimmers. I've pretty much used the same kit for five years, through several iterations of camera (PD150, HV30, HVX, Z1U, AF100/GH2). I don't light significantly different for the newer more sensitive cameras than I do the notoriously light-hungry HVX.

While the GH and AF CAN get exposure with half (or none) of the lighting, they still need lighting to make the image look GOOD.
