I have a run and gun night shoot with my nikon r10 fast approaching.

Does anyone ever use those vintage movie lights that slide into the top of S8
cameras? Are there any that run off battery? (cant really plug in)

Also how about a hot shoe LED light - how would that work if I needed to throw some
light on a subject and film super 8?

Thanks for any insight...

I use the Sunpak Readylite 20. very bright and easy to mount on a flash adaptor. Downside is the battery wears down fast. I purchased a seccond battery from B&H Photo so I have a spare charged up and ready to go. Sells for around $70.
