Looking for some great LED lights

Hello everyone!

I have been thinking of moving to all LED lights. I mostly do weddings, live events, products, and interview type videos.

I have a few small fotodiox LED lights which I love but need some more powerful lights.

I also want to be able to diffuse them and have a softer light when possible.

Any good suggestions out there?

Thanks!

I'm a big fan of the Litepanels Astra lights. 4x brighter than the original 1x1 models and at a lower price too. Plenty of output so you can diffuse it and still have plenty of illumination when it reaches the subject. Lightweight and easy to pack.

I'll second the Litepanels Astras and also add to Doug's comments; not only lower price vs 1st gen 1x1s and 4x brighter but much better color rendering.

I have got a few blog posts about them and showing them in use: Search Results for “astra lite” – Learning to See .
