Neewer # 216 bulb LED studio lighting package ($279.99 CDN)


I am waiting to see if these lights will work better than my large Cowboy Studio lamps in my small office. The adapter allows you to use AC rather than the rechargeable batteries supplied.

The lighting is excellent – and the rechargeable batteries seem to last a good time. I also have the AC battery inserts for when the batteries fizzle out ($29.99 CDN each). If only I had a few more wall outlets!




I have also purchased a dual battery charger for these as only one charger was included – tough when one after the other needs charging and you only have a single charging station!

Neewer Dual-Channel LCD Display Battery Charger with 3 Plug(US Plug,EU Plug,Car Adapter) for Sony NP-F550/F570/F750/F770/F930/F950/F960/F970, NP-FM50/FM500H/QM71/QM91/QM71D/QM91D Camcorder Batteries ($49.99 CDN)

Lighting and Greenscreens

Category:Lighting,Screencasting Equipment

Canadian Studio  Lighting System ($269.00 CDN)



This is the lighting system I purchased from Amazon (sign up for Amazon Prime and save some $$ if you are doing a lot of purchases – some better deals, 2 day shipping for free and more!)

The instructions for setting up the lights and backdrop were terrible, but by trial and error I eventually figured out what goes with what.

You will need a few more clips than are supplied to hold the fabric taught ( Home Hardware works for me)

All in all – it is a very good setup for screencasting and I can recommend it for the price.

I have a light on the ceiling of my office and have changed to daylight bulbs so I don’t need the boom arm for my head lighting (seems to work , and saves a lot of room in my office as well).

I also find having my main and fill lighting lower so as to reduce the shine on my gray hair works a bit better.
