5000lumens video lights vs Strobes

  • Lights are essential for u/w photography...
    I was wondering of which setup is good??
    2 x 5000lumes video light (continous lights)
    Or
    2 x strobes??(only flash via optical optics when taking pix)

    Which we can use for both video and photography as well?

  • 2x strobe with 2x 5000lum lights would be best for both Photography and Videography.... but could be very $$$$.

    I use 2x strobe and 1x 2400lum for my DSLR setup... since I take photo more than video (most would do mainly one or the other)... I save weight by taking only what I need...

    Of cos...we know how expensive it can be... hehheh...
    But will taking photos with 2 x vidz lights be a lil similar with using strobes?? (Compact camera G series or Tg4)

    Ans... NO.

    In a pinch... yes, you can use even divetorch to light up a subject for photograph... but IMHO, its not ideal...

    Something to read...
