Regular flashlights are not that great when being used as a continuous lighting source for both photography and videography. This is where having an attachable panel of LED lights comes in handy. You can either attach it on top of your DSLR camera or on a stand to get continuous artificial light for long durations in the most optimum way. Also, they have brightness adjustment rotating dials, enabling you to have control over the intensity of the lights. If you have been in search of such a product for your next assignment, here are four such products that you can buy at Amazon. Note that these products have been selected based on their listed features.

Manfrotto Lumimuse 8

If you are looking for a tiny LED light for your DSLR camera, then the Manfrotto Lumimuse 8 should do the job for you. With dimensions of 8.6 x 2.8 x 5.9cm, it is one of the most compact systems of LED lights in the market. You can attach it to a holder or place it on top of your camera, as the situation demands. Do not go by its small size as it packs a punch with the eight LED lights it has. It comes with a four-stop dimming feature, which you can adjust using a button on the side. The product runs on a lithium-polymer battery that should give you around 60 minutes of light in one go, according to the brand. Thanks to the clip-on filter-holder, you can attach your CTO or diffusion filter to click pictures in different colour modes. Finally, it has a built-in Bluetooth connectivity option as well for iOS devices, so that you can operate it remotely via an app.

Osaka LED 308

Here is a bright LED light for your DSLR cameras from Osaka. It has 308 pieces of LED lights on a panel. The lights are bi-colour with colour temperatures ranging from 3200K–5600K and have a wide dimmable range of 1%–100%. Since you can easily change these settings with buttons, you have power over the light output coming out of the panel. Furthermore, it comes with a high Colour Rendering Index (CRI), which should result in pictures with high contrast. Also, it comes with a milk-white diffuser which you can use to soften the light when you want. It has a pocket-friendly design and weighs only 205g, making it a handy and portable camera accessory.

Powerpak LED-168

The Powerpak LED-168 is an LED light system for DSLR cameras that comes with a special wide layout design to give you a wider and brighter light output. It has four different extension slots on each side so that you can connect other similar light sources to it and get an even brighter light setting. It has two knobs at the back to control the intensity and the colour temperature of light emitted by the LEDs. It can run on six AA batteries or any one of the NP-F550, NP-FM55H or NP-FH60 batteries. Since it has a battery life indicator, you will know when to change the batteries. Overall, the LED lights should give you 50,000 hours of life, as per company claims. Also, this portable life system is compatible with most DSLR cameras of most leading brands.

Powerpak LED-260A

If you are looking for a LED light system with a large colour temperature range, then the Powerpak LED-260A should do the job for you.
