are these even made? im trying to find halogen lights (on a tripod preferably)that are battery operated to use for urban. It would be so much more convenient than a generator. id be willing to pay a very very pretty penny for one, if anyone knows where i can get one, thatd be great.
some biking companies make battery operated halogens for 24 hour races and shit like that. they're pretty small, but have a shitload of light. checkout www.niterider.com i think thats the website at least
I really don't think they are made... and if they are, most likely quite low power or very short charge times. If you search hard you *might* be able to find some sort of video production light that runs off a battery of some sort...
Another idea would be to do some research into a power adapter and find something that would let you plug the lights into a car battery through the adapter... not really sure if it's safe or really that feasable, but it's an idea.
Hey man Ive worked a lot with lighting for parties we organised in abandoned railway tunnels. Generators are by far the easiest way about it. You dont need to go super big like 3500Watts, you can get 250W halogens that do a decent job. 4-6 of these and your looking good, nicer spread of light than less 1000W lights. Obviously if you can transport a bigger generator then the more power the better. We've got a 6.5KW one, its on wheels but weighs so much. It is possible to get a transformer for a car battery though. Theyre really cheap and work well. The kind of thing that lets you use normal plugs in your car outlet normally comes with attatchments to let you plug it straight to a car battery. We use it for a portable audio system sometimes. Gives you a lot of power, just means putting it back in the car to charge it up again. Not sure how many lights you could get hoked up to it though.
that would actually be dope, if you just have the area somewhat lit but not super bright and mount one of those biking lights on to camera as a spot light type of thing. i think that'd look pretty tubular
