Included bulbs aren't bright enough for all video recording needs. Some build quality issues with the softboxes.
Back of the LED light contains a digital display to inform you of the brightness and color temperature settings in the scene. You can set the color temperature of the video light between 3200K and 5600K, giving this light kit all of the versatility you'll need.
More expensive than other options. Difficult to dial down the brightness level low enough for some scenes.

The right light on a video shoot not only illuminates your subject, but can also set the mood. One of the best ways you can improve your shoot is to buy a video lighting kit. If you are just starting out, you’re probably better off going with a less expensive starter kit. Any kit should be packed with equipment like stands, diffusers, reflectors, and maybe even a background screen. Search for stands that are adjustable, and for lights where you can change the brightness and color temperature. A durable yet lightweight kit helps if you’re going to be shooting in a variety of locations, as does an included tote bag for it all.
