I recently picked up a 60-LED
light from DealExtreme. This inexpensive light has power settings, is extremely portable, and can be charged via usb. This LED array throws a lot of light and are perfect for photography as the bottom of the LED array has a hot-shoe clip that allows it to be conveniently placed in many SLR type cameras...unfortunately I don't have one of those cameras.
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.
