Ikelite DS-161 - How does it work for video?

01 December 2013 - 05:44 PM

I'm new to video.  But I'm upgrading my 60D to the 70D, and would like to try shooting some video along with stills.  The DS161 has lighting for both.  But how well does the video lighting actually perform? I see it has a 45 degree span for video, which isn't much; so I would expect to have 2 lights.  It also weights 2.5 lbs, which is a lot to travel with.  Is it enough light?  Are you limited to distance, lens width, or color temperature?  Any feedback would be helpful.  Thanks.
