Supersoftbox is our best selling video lighting item and is ideal for interview and waist up type YouTube videos. Any camera can be used like a DV Camera, DSLR or Camcorder and has 4 x 50w daylight balanced compact fluorescent bulbs giving the equivalent out put of 800w per head.
The equivalent output is to an incandescent bulb or normal household bulb, the industry standard is to multiply the wattage of the bulb by 4 to give the approx output. Beware companies who multiply by 5 or more to make you think the output is higher, always look for the wattage of the bulb.
Constant lighting is what anyone who shoots video wants and once you have mastered your set up this can be recreated every time it gives you greater consistency.
We have some great tips on how to create your videos and if you want a white background or if you want a chroma green set up then we have some instructional videos.
