The LED Camera Light Shootout…

…that I wish I had gotten to first!


A guy named Frank Glencairn, whom I think is in England somewhere, has gone and done what we’ve all thought about:

A shootout between five inexpensive LED sunguns.

(OK, so maybe the term “inexpensive” doesn’t quite stretch to cover the Litepanels LP Micro, but I digress.)

The shootout is pretty well done, and even includes a video at the end. But you can look at the video right here:

Check it out, and a tip ‘o the hat to Frank!


Bruce A Johnson

A 1981 graduate of the Boston University College of Communication, Bruce A. Johnson got his first job in broadcast television at WFTV, an ABC affiliate in Orlando, FL. While there, he rose through the ranks from teleprompter operator to videographer, editor, producer and director of many different types of programming. It was in the early 1980’s that he bought his first computer – a Timex/Sinclair 1000 – a device he hated so much, he promptly exchanged it for an Atari 400. But the bug had bitten hard. In 1987, Johnson joined Wisconsin Public Television in Madison as a videographer/editor, and still works there to the present day. His responsibilities have grown, however, and now include research and presentations on the issues surrounding the digital television transition, new consumer technology and the use of public television spectrum in homeland security. He freelances through his company Painted Post MultiMedia, and has written extensively for magazines including DV and Studio Monthly.
