      I'd avoid using CFL lights, even the professional ones like Kino Flo have visible green spike, their TLCI values are mediocre. Here's an amazing database of good quality LED lights: http://indiecinemaacademy.com/complete-led-color-database-cri-tlci-cqs-tm30-15/

      True. All of my LEDs are daylight balanced, and I have some 5500k CFL bulbs for those handheld worklights and some 5x45w 5500k CFL softboxes which I rarely use these days. I'm about to do some tests with 4000k CTS gels. CTO is too orange for my liking with the 5D.

      CMOS sensors love daylight balanced source, almost all digital cameras have a native sensor white balance of 5000K-5500K, they have the best colour/SNR performance under daylight. At NAB/Cinegear Pro/IBC, a lot of DOPs are saying that the future of cinema lighting will be daylight balanced LED.

      The upside to tungstens is they're cheap. The downsides: they're power hungry, hot, and a bit fragile. You have to be weary of single phase power loads, something I've never had to think about with LEDs. When you factor in the cost of bulbs, LEDs work out cheaper over the life of the fixture. LEDs are also a lot easier to work with on location running off v-mounts instead of generators. @Liam The first lights I ever bought were a few $10 handheld work lights from a hardware store and an assortment of daylight and tungsten CFL globes up to 24w. I also bought a 2x 500w tungsten worklight for about $50. The standard bulbs are too warm, but you can buy 2700k bulbs for them. Ikea have some cheap fixtures and high CRI LED bulbs; you can use them as practicals too.

      Thanks Andy! Those are all wayy better deals for that level than I'd been finding
