On-camera lights are one of the easiest ways to get extra lighting while filming video. There's no need to set up separate standing lights, and you don't have to worry as much about the lighting outdoors or the room in which you're shooting. Most will attach directly to the most popular cameras and use LED lights for a bright, white light. Most have a dimmer option, so you can adjust the brightness of the light. Many also come with at least a couple different filters, so you can adjust the color temperature, as well. Pay attention to batteries--some come with rechargeable batteries, while others only come with battery adapters, and you have to provide your own batteries.
