Tony Reale‘s NextWaveDv has been a great resource for filmmakers. Their website has provided news and training articles for independent videographers and filmmakers for quite a while.
It’s a good thing when new companies come into existence and offer new products that challenge others price or functions. It’s even better when there’s a good person behind them and we hope NextLites will survive among the strong competition in video equipment that we’re seeing lately.
As for the products NextLites offer the whole range: LED, Fluorescent, Tungsten and HMI and their products look a lot like what we’re used to at a relatively normal pricepoint I would say, not cheap, not expensive either. These lights will have to earn their respect with time when users start to test and evaluate them, but I have a feeling they will live up to our expectations.
Although our great Reviews Section is a little broken at the moment due to a legal dispute (long story), we have a whole lighting section that is just waiting to be filled with information and new product pages by you. this would
be a good place to index reviews and opinions about the NextLites.

We started from the ground up to create a complete training series to help you learn the basics of how to shoot great video on a HDSLR. Whether you’re a photographer and new to video, or have been using video cameras for years and are new to DSLR cameras…at the end of our series, you will know the necessary workflow to begin shooting your own films.”
