I am looking to shoot a wedding scene in a music video and would like to light it so that the characters have that glassy eyed ring effect you would achieve using a ring flash on a still camera. I understand that you just need to find a continuous ring flash for a video camera. my only problem is that i aim to be shooting on the Canon 5D so i cant get the typical shoe horn accessories. does anyone know a continuous, self powered light set up thats cheap and can achieve this look and would work effectively with the 5D?

I believe it attachs to typical rods so you'll have to figure something out at a rental house

I don't know if someone makes a clip on ring light

Look at the Kamio from Kino Flo

http://www.kinoflo.c...Kamio/Kamio.htm

Excellent light, and it can clip right onto the lens (among other options). Very nice light quality. It hooks up like the Mini Flo fixtures. There is a baby 12v ballast, which can hook to a battery or an AC adapter. Like all Kinos, you can swap the lamp from tungsten to daylight.

Basic kit is like $850 plus lots of rental houses have them available.
