single vs dual video lights?

30 June 2016 - 01:08 PM

The new generation of video lights are incredibly powerful and compact.  I now see lights that easily fit on a mirrorless housing that put out 12,000 lumens.  I do both photo and video on the same dive and am often switching back and forth.  I am in the market for new video lighting.


My question is this, what is the advantage versus disadvantage of dual versus a single video light?  Am I better off getting two 7000 lumen lights to go on my arms (dual clamped with my strobes) or one moderately larger 12000 light on the coldshoe mount of my housing?
