3 Best LED Video Lights for Video and Cinematography in 2022

If there’s one more important thing to make video with a good 4k camera and crystal clear audio these days, it’s LED video lights. But with hundreds of video lights claiming to be best for you, how can you possibly find the right one?

We also offer several video lights, from camera-mounted portable LED lights to LED panel lights to LED spotlights, designed to help you cover all the basics when it comes to high-end video production.

First, take a look at the important things to consider when buying lights to take your production quality to the next level.


things to consider

1. Beam angle

How much area are you hoping to cover with this light? Are you looking to illuminate the whole scene or create more of a spotlight effect? These are the important things to think about when deciding on the appropriate beam angle for your new video light. Wider beam angles will produce light that covers a wide area, while lower-degree beam angles will create a more concentrated stream of light.

2. Light output


The lights you see behind the scenes on professional movie sets are likely to have a very high light output, but they are also sure to cost a pretty penny and generate a lot of heat. If you are filming in a home studio or relatively confined space, there is no need for lights with very high lux to create the illusion of a professional set. Below we have used lux at 1 meter as a measurement of brightness, where a higher value means brighter light and higher output. It is also worth looking into how compatible your home outlets are with different light outputs to prevent safety risks.

3. Color temperature

It is crucial to have the ambiance of your content in mind when deciding on a light, as that will help you decide on the right color temperature. Lights in the lower ranges of color temperatures are going to give off a warm, orange hue, while lights on the higher end of the spectrum will produce a sharper, blue hue. Color temperature is what determines the color of your lighting and usually ranges from about 2700K – 6500K.

4. Noise

Noise is a critical component when buying lights for video content. Nothing is less professional than distractions in the background of your videos. It is thus advisable to steer clear of larger lights that make use of cooling fans. In the case of lights, bigger is not always better.

5. Color Rendering Index (CRI)

CRI is going to be the determining factor in the quality of your lighting setup. You want to look for a cinematography light with a CRI of 90-97 in order to rest assured that your light will produce the same quality as advertised in the product images. This is the specification to look out for to avoid an “Expectation vs. Reality” scenario.


6. Portability
