Compact and lightweight, it features a built-in diffusion panel, enabling natural, even exposure and smooth textures with soft light. For further versatility, the bracket can be removed from the movie light, giving the user free control over the angle of lighting.
The built-in diffusion panel evenly diffuses light for clear and consistent soft illumination. It also enables natural rendering of textures with minimal glare. The movie light can be used as an additional light source when capturing close proximity photography of still subjects like food, or as an additional light source for HD videos.
The degree and effect of the light can be confirmed in the live view display as it strikes the subject.
The movie light can be separated from the camera bracket, allowing users to adjust direction and height, as well as the distance of the light from the subject to achieve an optimal lighting angle regardless of the camera’s position.
The Nikon LD-1000 LED Movie Light is scheduled to be available in October at a manufacturers’ suggested retail price (MSRP) of $119.95. It is available in black and white.
