It's actually a white navigation light...
I thought about that too....but judging by the apparent size, and the way it's aimed, I chose the Logo Light instead of the Nav Light.
Usually on widebodies (I'm assuming this is an A-330, since the OP says it's RIO to CDG) there are two Nav Lights, each position, each color, for
dispatch redundancy. ALSO, the white Nav Lights aren't usually aimed towards the fuselage, but are designed to be seen mostly from the aft, and
about 140 degrees to the sides.
If the videographer was seated aft of the wing, the Logo Light would certainly be glaring, assuming it's mounted at the Wingtip, and not the
Horizontal Stabilizer tips, as on some models.
This is why I turn off the Logo Lights above 18,000 feet --- they aren't needed, and are distracting to passengers.
