Flolight has that solution for those of us that can never fit the standard mold.
BUILD YOUR OWN VIDEO LIGHTING KIT
With over 800 possible permutations, our pre-configured kits can't possibly cover all scenarios, customers will want a mix of spot and flood versions in one kit. Previously if you wanted a permutation not shown you would have had to order lights individually, and would have missed out on the free stands offered with kit purchases. This new feature allows you to configure your kit the way you want it!
FREE LIGHT STANDS WITH ANY KIT ORDER CONSISTING OF THREE OR MORE LIGHTS
When purchasing any three lights as part of your Build A Kit, you get free 8' light stands. These stands retail for $60 each when purchased separately. In addition a light stand carry bag is also included which retails for $79. This means when you order a lighting kit from us you save a minimum of $199 dollars with just two lights, and if you order 4 lights your savings climb to $319.

Flolight has that solution for those of us that can never fit the standard mold.
The EyLight is the world's first professional camera light with an internal quick-swap rechargeable battery that delivers sustainable power to traditional tungsten and LED lamps in a compact “all-in-one design”. Built on the industry standard Frezzi Mini-Fill's form factor, it's ideal for handheld cameras that have no way to power a professional light. Finally, get the professional quality light you need and extra run time for your camera all without cables.
Also by Frezzi was the SkyLight designed to deliver an impressive amount of daylight-balanced light suitable for indoor/outdoor news gathering and field production. It's a highly portable LED fixture powered by standard broadcast batteries, DC or AC power.
The Skylight delivers equivalent light to a 650 Watt tungsten or 125W-150W HMI source while drawing only 75W of power. It's fully dimmable with selectable beam angles using quick change reflector technology.

Hoodman Corporation manufactures inspired digital camera tools. Glare Fighting LCD loupes, ratcheting variable angle viewers, the fastest, longest lasting CompactFlash memory cards and the worlds first steel plated, ruggedized SDHC memory card line for digital media production.
At NAB this year Hoodman’s simple new hood model (HBM1) for the Blackmagic Production Camera LCD screen greatly improves outdoor LCD viewing. The new HBM1 hood uses a pierceable bottom panel to facilitate glare free touch screen access. Mounting the HBM1 hood to the OEM visor takes only seconds and is done with the included adhesive Velcro mount kit. Rugged nylon plastic insert construction allows the HBM1 hood to fold flat for easy storage.
Hoodman also had their H line of SD cards which are a wise purchase for customers who require reliable memory cards, but do not require the fastest memory cards we make. The H line features “Chip on Board” internal construction, up to 60 MB/s transfer speeds and a lifetime warranty.
iKan Corp, a Houston based designer and manufacturer of digital video and DSLR gear used by independent filmmakers, videographers, and professional photographers will showcase nearly 100 new products in their NAB booth.

K5600 has brought a new fresnel fixture to the table in the form of the Alpha 200. It is a compact and lightweight fresnel instrument that follows the same design philosophy of the larger K5600 Alpha fixtures and accepts both Quart Metal Halide Lamps (HMI) and Ceramic Discharge lamps, allowing it to now project in both 3200K and 5600K color temperatures simply by changing lamps. It can be used with a drop-in lens with 10-60 degree focusing range or with clear Pyrex to give even 90 degree output that produces crisp and hard shadows like a typical open face fixture.
The new Joker 200 also has the option of accepting the same lamps as the Alpha 200. With the Evolution series of kits, you have five different choices, including one fixture, or two fixtures (one of each or two of the same). Each Evolution Kit will include a streamlined compact AC only power supply, kit stands, both 3200K and 5600K lamps, barndoors, and optical accessories for your chosen fixture. Packaged within a lightweight softcase, the Evolution Kit has everything necessary to create beautiful, color correct images regardless of location setting. Along with the ability to use either tungsten or HMI lamps, the Joker 200 has a reconfigured Evolution Beamer with specular parabolic reflector allowing for the punch and control of a Classic Joker at a less expensive price point.
Kino Flo Lighting Systems showed all of the popular fluorescent fixtures that made them famous, but front and center were their three new LED units: The Celeb 200 DMX LED, the Celeb 400 DMX LED, and the Celeb 400Q DMX LED. All three are variable color temperature, from 2700-5500K (CRI of 95+), with onboard dimming and color temperature adjustment as well as control via DMX.
For ease of use, the units have five presets for color temperature accessible from buttons on the back. These units provide the excellent, soft wrap lighting that Kino Flo is known for while offering the increased flexibility of an LED fixture. The units dim without color shift, and they also maintain their output as the color temperature is changed. The Celeb 200 is positioned as an LED replacement for the 2-tube Diva-Lite 201. The Celeb 400, which begins shipping in April, is similarly designed to replace 4-tube fixtures. The Celeb 400 was also named the Videomaker "Best Light of NAB 2014".
Finally, the Celeb 400W, which will be available in July takes the light level of the 400 but changes the form-factor to a 2' x 2' square LED panel for a more concentrated source that still feels soft.
Las Vegas offered the first opportunity for Libec to show ALLEX - their innovative new tripod and slider system for smaller cameras and SLR operators. Utilizing a slightly flattened 75mm half-ball, the tripod head can quickly move from multi-stage tripod to linear slider. The ALLEX S slider can be attached to a tripod via half-ball for quick leveling or on any flat surface with the included legs, which fold in for easy transportation.
