Re: Reception Lighting Alternative

The lights worked great at the wedding I had this past weekend. They were definitely a must given the lighting situation at the ceremony and reception.

Small, easy to carry and setup, no cables anywhere and 1 off brand 550 Sony type battery will get me thru an entire evening. If they break, I'm not really worried about it. For the money I'll buy 6 new ones a year.
Don, although I have two high capacity sony batteries I would still like to get a couple of 550's. Is there a trusted source to purcahse these from?

Re: Reception Lighting Alternative

I got my "550s" from Amazon - Blue Nook seems to be a real good vendor for Wasabi batteries. Cheap, good delivery and the batteries work just fine. I've got 4 of the 550s and a couple of the 970s and they've been flawless. Lots of actual run time.

Re: Reception Lighting Alternative

I know Im a little late to this discussion, but just want to share what Ive found on ebay:

KY010 160p LED Video Light for 550D 600D D7000 D5100 Camera DV Camcorder+Remote | eBay

I know is a cheap-chinese-put-your-adjective-here, but for $45 is a nice alternative to put on stands.

Cheers!
