I really needed a light to help me brighten up my sets in specific locations when I am taking pictures, and since I change locations when shooting I needed something that could be easily set up and moved when needed. This light will compliment the other lights I already own and will help boost any dark areas in a set.
Here's how I modified this hot shoe LED array to work with a 1/4" threaded connection, the same connection found on the underside of almost all cameras, and on tripod mounts. Making this LED array powerful and portable.
Step 1: Unbox and cut hot shoe
The hot shoe clip for this LED array is made of molded plastic and is part of the housing. I was able to use a rotary tool to cleanly remove the hot shoe tab and leave a reasonably smooth, level surface.
