Budget-level video mic and light?
1

Suddenly my wife has the opportunity to become a content creator. She will be producing short 1-5 minute instructional videos. She'll be seated and needs lighting directly on her face with no side shadows, along with clear sound from her speaking. 
I'll be using my Z5 and just-purchased-it's-still-in-the-box 14-30 to shoot the videos. They will be shot in 1080/30 with basic editing in either iMovie or Lumafusion on my iPad. I need to purchase a mic and a video light. At the start I'm looking at the best value for our low budget. For a mic I'm looking at the Rode Video Micro, and for a light I see some cheap lcd panel lights on Amazon. Opinions on these or other suggestions? Tia
