About the Sony HVL-LE1

Every camcorder user will run in to situations where the available light just isn't enough to make a good picture. With the lightweight, cool-running HVL-LE1 LED video light from Sony attached to your camcorder's mounting shoe, you'll see the difference in your shot immediately: colors will become more saturated, sharpness will increase, and noise will be substantially reduced.

An on-board battery-life indicator will help you gauge how much shooting time you have remaining, and you can use multiple battery power options to fire up the unit — "AA" batteries and a variety of Sony lithium ion rechargeables are supported.

The HVL-LE1 comes with a soft case, a diffuser to soften shadows, a 3200K color conversion filter for matching indoor incandescent lighting, barn doors for directing light, and two shoe adapters for easy mounting.

Features

Overview: The HVL-LE1 battery-operated LED video light illuminates your subject so you can capture your images or video in low light. It attaches to the accessory shoe of your Sony alpha-series camera or Sony camcorder. You can power the HVL-LE1 with four "AA" batteries or a Sony V-series or M-series rechargeable battery.

Power Requirements: The battery compartment can hold four "AA" sized alkaline or Ni-MH rechargeable batteries. In addition, the video light can be powered by one of the following the Sony InfoLithium batteries: V-series NP-FV50, NP-FV70, NP-FV100, or M-series NP-FM500H, NP-QM71D or NP-QM91D. The video light has a battery icon that glows orange when the charge of the inserted batteries is low.

Shoe Adapters: Two shoe adapters are included with the HVL-LE1. One fits the Auto-lock Accessory Shoe found on Sony alpha-series cameras. The other is for use with standard ISO shoe mounts found on most other brands of DSLR cameras. The HVL-LE1 also has a standard 1/4" tripod mount on the bottom if you wish to mount the video light on a tripod.

Filters: The HVL-LE1 comes with a light diffuser, which will reduce the glare from the light, as well as make the light softer. A color conversion filter is also included, which reduces the color temperature to about 3200K. The diffuser and color conversion filter slide into a slot in front of the video light's lens.

Brightness Control: If you don't want to use the video light at full output, you can adjust the brightness of the light between 100% (Max) to 10% (Min) using the rotary dial on the side of the light.
