Necessary accessories for making a film

  1. Nov 11, 2013 #1
    So far I have the camera and the external microphone, but I realized that I'm probably going to need some light. I want to get some handheld light source that can provide white light (not the ugly yellow light a lot of bulbs produce). Any ideas on some keywords I could search for on Ebay or Google to help me find what I'm looking for? All I need is a bulb that produces white light, a socket that I can plug it into that is attached to a wire and I'm free to move the light where ever I want. Any ideas on how I could find this? Thanks.

    You can cover your ugly yellow lights with white filters.It's not difficult to make a stand using wood either.

    Light bounced off of white surfaces looks best on film, IMO.
