2 pack video lights
This set of two will provide enough light to illuminate our subject when shooting outdoors.

Switti LED Video Light, 2-Pack

The pack contains two LED Video lights, two adjustable stands, two power adapters, two power cables, one wireless remote control, one carry bag, two white diffusers, and two yellow diffusers. This is a twin pack that comes with wireless remote control, which is a really handy feature. You can choose the DC adaptor or the NP-F battery (which is not included)

Pros

· Extremely bright lights even when using the battery power

· Use remote control or buttons on the back of the lights

· Sturdy tripods

· High-quality product

Cons

· No bag for the tripod

· Once again, I just cannot find much to criticize with this kit.

Light stand
Don’t risk a heavy light toppling over. Make sure you have a sturdy light stand like this one.
Neewer Heavy Duty Light Stand, 3-6.5 feet

You may already have lighting and are just looking for a stand to complement your existing kit. Obviously, the key thing you will be looking for in a stand is sturdiness and stability. The stand is suitable for reflectors, lights, softboxes, and umbrellas. It has a weight capacity of 17.5 lbs. (8 kg).

Pros

· Secure twist locks for locking stand

· Good extension gets quite high

· Fast adjustment of heights

· Very affordable

Cons

· There seems to be a quality control issue. Most people are very satisfied with the stand but occasionally one comes along that is so different in quality to the others.

· The biggest criticism is that while most users will find this unit to be more than capable of doing the job, some people find the sturdiness to be an issue
