For indoors, you'd be better off getting tungsten flood than a day-light flood simply because if you put a cto on the day-light version, you'll lose a full stop or so.

I have both and the tungsten flood is great for indoors and the day-light is great outdoors.....at least based on what I do, of course.

Marshall how long do the batteries last on your Vidled light for normal reception shooting?

Which I gather would be on all of the time becasue of low light.

The VidLED lights last about 2 hours max on full. It's not bad given that I have a bunch of the batteries.

Want to buy my VidLED's? :)

I'd get the Daylight version and use the Full CTO to gel down. Unless the mass majority of your shooting is indoors, it's better to get the daylight version as you will only lose 1 stop going down rather 2 stops going up.
Daylight version 1 stop to Tungsten.
Tungsten version 2 stops up to Daylight.

Litepanels Mini is now at version 2 - They're 25% BRIGHTER! The gel holders are better, the dimming is much smoother (doesn't feel so jumpy). There's also another rebate currently going on for even more of a discount. http://dvcreators.net/litepanels
