    Most cost effective wat to get a LED panel setup ?

    Was looking at this:
    http://www.avedia.com.au/3x-700-led-...&category_id=0

    Has anyone seen anything cheaper? Or have a trusted source?

    I have no DIY skills for that type of thing.

    Lets clarify here, are you looking for cheapest, or cost effective? if you want cheaper, get on ebay

    Have you considered if they are even the best option for your application? You will always get the most bang (light) for your buck with strobes.

    If you actually need continuous light then that's another matter, but do you need continuous light?

    Yes i have researched, into the lighting options, as i am currently a photography student i have full strobe studio access.

    I like the effect leds have and how durable and portable the 500 less sizes can be.

    You should borrow or rent a light similar to the one you want to buy. It's better then spending the money and then finding it doesn't do what you thought it would.
