    What are some very bright lights that dont generate a ton of heat suitable for video? Im worried that some random LED light on amazon wont be remotely bright enough. I need to record LCD screens on a product so the lights need to be very bright so I can balance the LCD exposure with the studio lights while using a blue light filter.

    don't buy some random led-lights - i've used a few (dedo, comer, lite-panel) - the best ones were the dedos - and i'm pretty sure they were also the most expensive ones.

    maybe you should look for some flourescent light-systems like "kino flo"

    Try CFL lighting. It can be very bright and not hot. It is about 1//5th the cost of LED lighting.

    This is informative:

    Basically it says to place the bulbs in the reflector.
