News camera operators are constantly on the move, chasing down stories in many different conditions. Sometimes, they need to work in low-light situations, making it difficult to capture clear footage. Adding lighting to the vehicle is a great way to address this challenge. In this article, we’ll take a behind-the-scenes look at a truck work lights install we completed for a CBS cameraman and showcase some photos of the truck on the job.
Truck Work Lights Install: Build Overview
Floodlighting installations on news camera trucks and other work vehicles are becoming increasingly popular. These lights allow camera operators to capture clear footage even in the darkest conditions and offer usable lighting around the truck, making loading and unloading equipment easier.
This installation included several high-powered work lights mounted on a 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD Z71. We added four Load Lights to the truck’s shell and a Rectangular Task Light inside the hatch. These truck work lights will come in handy for loading and moving the camera equipment and for anyone working around the vehicle at night or in low-light situations.
Once the installation was complete, the cameraman tested the new lights on a night shoot in the snow. The difference was immediately noticeable. The truck work lights illuminated the scene and the area around the truck. The behind-the-scenes photos of the truck on the job showcase the importance of effective lighting in the field.
