The strange thing is that my filter fell out at some point while I was shooting. It didn't fall out because I was opening the filter door. I didn't even see it fall out.

Don, thanks for the tips on fixing the filter door and battery compartment. I've seen you post those before and was really just expressing my dissatisfaction with the fact that I paid $300 for a light that immediately requires "do-it-yourself" fixing.

All things said, I still like the light and will be using it A LOT more than my Bescor.

This is probably the toughest area for wedding shooters. Many/most of the weddings I shoot have a lighting designer lighting the venue so placing a big ole' light anywhere would kill the atmosphere. Trouble is the LD's lights don't help be a bit, they are usually under tables lights or accent lights. I've been using a micro frezzi on with a dimmer. It's worked well, but I'm shooting with a XL1S, so that means I need to lug a battery belt when using my Frezzi which is a pain in the ass.

I saw a behind the scenes show on the making of The Real World. One of the Grips rigged this little battery operated Chinese Lantern that the could take into restaurants and bars and place on the table to light the faces of the characters. It's small enough to shoot around and gave off a nice soft light. If you're a Grip and are reading this, mass produce this little gem, thousands of wedding videographers will be in your debt.
