Westcott Ice Light (Daylight)

This is an excellent light-saber style fixture with great output and good battery life. It will run around 2-3 hours on a charge, depending on the output. Dimmable and easy to control, comes with screw mounts on both ends for placing on a simple stand. I find these to be very useful as a fill when shooting outdoors, or even key light when I'm doing a quick interview indoors where I cannot bring or set up a lot of light fixtures. Truly one of the most useful tools in a lighting kit, and fits in a backpack!

Funnily enough, we didn't end up using this kit for our shoot as we didn't end up needing it, but I would definitely rent from Roberto -- he was super accommodating for drop off and pickup times, and all the equipment was in great condition.
