I need some advices on beam angles and i hope you'll light me up a little bit
I'll buy my first 2 LED Panels (relatively cheap Apurture Amaran 672) and basically i have 2 options (who cost the same price) :
- One model with less brightness, but with a beam angle of 75°
- The other one who can output almost 3x more brightness, but concentrated in a much smaller beam angle of 25°
I'll use these panels for a lot of different things : short movies, more serious corporate work, music video,...
So i wonder : By experience, what solution will be the most versatile for my needs? For me having more power that i can diffuse with softboxes, etc...seems a smarter choice, but the difference in beam angle is huge and i'm scared that 25° will be too narrow for bigger subject, even highly diffused !
I'll buy a third panel when i'll be able to afford it, but for now i'll begin with 2.
I'm in the learning process, sorry if some parts sounds "stupid" to you.
A big thank's !
