How to make a Super Bright LED Light Panel for Video for about $70

Here’s a DIY instructable from DIY Perks on how to build a 100W LED Panel:

Here’s how to make a super-bright LED light panel. It’s equivalent to a 1000w incandescent light bulb, and it’s super useful for video work as it has a daylight colour temperature and doesn’t use PWM for dimming. There are 900 individual LEDs in this panel, which is why it’s so bright.

Here’s a list of parts:
