Hi fellow DVX Users!
I just posted up a new video about compiling a lighting kit with professional lights, but on a budget. The lights I have in the video, as well as the ones I didn't show in the video all cost under $50 each (most of them were closer to $20), and I've used the lights on professional shoots including the latest feature film that I produced.
If you want to check out the video you can see it on our host website Media Monstrous or on YouTube.
I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Awesome dude, good stuff. Just as I was getting ready to come here and ask "But alex, where do I find bulbs for these?!" bam, you answer it in the video.

Nice video, well done!
It's important to note the colour temperature and G/M shift of these lights as they may vary between units.
btw, you are cute :-P hahaLove everything about film.

Oh man, thanks!
I need to get some 1k's and bigger fixtures, and this looks perfect.
These definitely seem more common in LA craigslist and such, but they're definitely around.
Thanks again dude, this rules.
I might need help finding the bulbs, but should order some first.

Awesome! I'm glad you found the video to be useful! Thanks for all your comments!

These are perfect, in my opinion, for someone graduating to bigger fixtures. They do make 2K fresnels, and I've even seen a 4 bank 4K...almost like a molefay but open faced...that can run on house power because it had 4 independent power plugs.
As for finding bulbs, the lights themselves usually have bulb information printed on them somewhere - and you can take that information and google it to find different options for replacement bulbs near you or online.

Awesome! I have a few of those Multi-Beam fixtures, and I use them all the time. One of the tips I have planned for the future is making barn doors for light fixtures and I was going to use the Multi-Beams for that. The other one I haven't seen before, but it seems cool! Almost like Mole Nooklite - and the Multi-Beams are similar to the Mickey-Mole fixtures.
I hope you get some good use out of them!

I've moved this from Cinematography to Lighting. However, I've left the links as expiring re-directs for three days. I hope you get some views and responses! Might sticky this, too.
This is a question many people on DVXuser are searching for. So please let's not have the conversation end with this one suggestion of colortrans...
Let's talk about other affordable lighting solutions!

these use halogen bulbs correct?
besides the cost, would fluorescents be a better choice due to heat?
