MC Contributor Will Crockett (DiscoverMirrorless.com) shares two of his favorite hybrid LED lights that work just as good for still as they do for video.
Will writes: Did you know that you can flash some LED lights for still photography? Yep, you sure can AND the flash pulse is 4 to 6 times brighter than the LED can glow continuously.
These are hybrid LED lights and are made to help us make the transition from shooting “still only” into shooting hybrid any time and anyplace we want to. They are easy to use, light, silent, easy on battery consumption and work great… with a few exceptions.
LED lighting goes with Hybrid Photography like Peanut Butter goes with Jelly – and the ability of these new LED lights to work both as a continuous light source OR flash will allow you to quickly move from photo to video shooting without having to swap out gear – and that means less stuff in your camera bag and less strain on your back!
