I am working on a Drama at the moment and using some fantastic new LED lights from H Preston Media called simply the CN-600HS, the best part is the ability to use Sony “V” lock batteries. These LED lights are amazing value for money at £399, they come with two filters, a remote dimmer control switch, a Sony V lock plate and a 12V 250V power converter.

The light above has a 3200K filter slid into place and being LED runs cold all day long, I had both lights running from 10am till 4pm and my 160W 12V battery had still 4 out of 5 LED power indicator lights showing. The CN-600HS lights are remarkable value for money and in case you are still not convinced they are well built…in fact better built than the LED lights I bought a year ago for twice the money and no “V” lock, remote or filters.

As standard the lights come with a clear diffuser the LED lights balanced for 5400K, a 3200K orange filter and a rose coloured filter for minus green filtering, this is useful for using your LED light with mixed lighting. I will give you an update tomorrow evening but so far I am more than delighted with my CN-600HS LED lights.

Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
