I have a question about recording a video via dSLR camera using macro lens. What I understand is that red filter and white balancing is needed for video recording with wide lens. However, for situations with macro lens where most of the light are from video white lights already, do we still need red filter to correct the white balance? Would the white light from light source suffice for the video recording?

Yes, you want to use either your red filter or your lights...but never both.
