Melville, NY—Nikon’s new LD-1000 LED movie light, an optional lighting accessory for Nikon 1 and Coolpix cameras, is compact and lightweight yet features a built-in diffusion panel to enable natural, even exposure and smooth textures with soft light.
The LD-1000 LED’s built-in diffusion panel is designed to evenly diffuse 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 video. And, as the movie light emits light continuously, rather than momentarily as a camera flash does, the degree and effect of the light can be confirmed in the live view display as it strikes the subject while shooting.
In addition, the movie light can be separated from the camera bracket, allowing users to hand-hold the light 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 comes in black and white version for a suggested retail price of $99.95. nikonusa.com
