Test: Lishuai LED 100WB-56, Leica 12mm f/1.4, Rode VideoMic Pro

For my first video with studio lighting, I’m using the Lishuai LED 100WB-56, a 100 watt daylight balanced fixture, along with a Godox softbox. Kelvin temperature was set manually in camera and Panasonic’s Image App was used to focus and start recording. The video was uploaded straight to YouTube from the memory card. My studio apartment is pretty tiny, and the Leica 12mm f/1.4 allowed me to record up close with a mic mounted on the hotshoe, as well as being able to position the Lishuai as close as possible to my workspace. The fan on the unit does create some hum, but it’s drowned out by all the other noises in my apartment. The Rode mic was set to 0 dB and mic levels in the G85 to -6.
