Consider why you want LEDs. The expensive ones are a whole lot brighter than the cheap panels, and even an expensive panel puts out less light than any shoe mount flash (using similar shutter speeds). If you're after softer light, and that's why you want a panel, consider adding a Lumiquest diffuser to the flash. This will easily soften the light as much as an LED panel, and you'll have all the power you need.

Also, any continuous light source will be more disturbing to critters than a flash will. Continuous lights are good for video, but for still image purposes, a flash has too many solid advantages.
