Can you be more specific. I can't tell if you are looking for a camera light to illuminate lens marks, an eyelight, a fresnel or a fill light and if your looking for a fill light in what context.

I think you're looking for a ringlight that encircles the lens and provides some on-axis fill of the talent. While I don't own one personally, litepanels and kinoflo both make them. http://www.litepanel...ite_cinema.html http://kinoflo.com/1...Kamio/Kamio.htm Otherwise, we sometimes make our own (for locked off cameras) using foamcore and bare kino tubes, which allows you to arrange it in any shape you like. Obviously, that requires the ballasts and all to be tethered to distribution. Also, we've rigged 2" tubes with http://www.filmtools.../kinoclamp.html kino clamps and some 3/8s rod or a noga arm to the camera, which still requires AC power.

Also see this thread http://www.cinematog...=0 for a great discussion of camera mounted ringlights.
