Abbott, near and dear to my heart and often…in my bank account, is the fact that I…get booked for a lot of video shoots and…a lot of photographers are seeing this happen these days.…They're doing behind the scenes videos.…They're doing corporate interviews.…You need this type of lighting to do that right?…>> Right. You can't use strobes to shoot video.…And all of these cameras now will shoot…video, they'll shoot stills, and there's that expectation when…you walk in to say a wedding or an event that you may need to provide both.…
So that's the beauty of some of these lights.…>> Yeah.…>> And they are different.…You can get some constant or continuous lights that are only…so bright and then, you can get ones that are ridiculously bright.…And that's where cost comes in. >> Yeah.…>> And brand.…And even the style, whether it's an LED or if it's a CFL.…>> Now,…another good point to consider that I think is sort of an added benefit.…A lot of the studio strobes can be cheated and…used as continuous lights for purposes of a video interview.…
