A number of you were asking about filming those cheap LED christmas lights I posted yesterday. I haven’t seen any problems with them on video but I thought I’d shoot this quick demo at 24p and 30p so you can get an idea of what they look like on film. As you can see from the video, there isn’t any flickering or any other noticeable problems with these lights at either 30p or 24p.

Because these lights were pretty close to the camera, they were a bit overexposed in the video and the green color doesn’t stand out very well. If you move them to the background and increase the foreground lighting a bit, you get very nice looking bokeh and the green stands out. A set of these in red that are shaped like a heart could be a great edition to a Valentine’s Day photo or video shoot.
