LED Video Light Panels (Large)
Large LED light panels have an advantage not only because they need less energy to offer the same amount of light (LEDs convert 90% of their energy into light, while tungsten only achieves between 10 and 20%, transforming the rest in heat). LEDs are also better when it comes to photographing people or sensitive materials—like food, for example—because you can place them closer to your subject without having to worry about the heat making it uncomfortable for the person being photographed, or reheating the dish being photographed.
LED Video Light Panels (Small)
These small LED light panels can be mounted on any standard hot shoe on most DSLR or digital video cameras, tripods and light stands equipped with a hot shoe mount or 1/4-inch thread. With a small light panel, you can see how much light is needed while your are putting the scene together and to adjust as necessary. This way, you can get an idea of what you need right away instead of having a lot of trial and error along the way.
