Overview: The Nikon LD-1000 is an LED Movie light, designed
for use with Nikon 1 and Coolpix digital cameras. The LD-1000 outputs a steady
beam of light to provide additional
illumination for both still photos and movies. It can be handheld, or attached to
your camera via the included bracket. The LD-1000 weighs 4.6 ounces with
batteries, or 3 ounces, body only.
Included Bracket: The LED light has a 5-1/4" long metal bracket that
screws into the bottom of your camera via the tripod socket. You can adjust the
angle and position of the light depending upon the length of the camera's lens
(to prevent shadows caused by longer lenses). Without the bracket, the light can
be handheld to allow you to get creative with your lighting.
3-way Switch: The LD-1000 is controlled by a 3-way push button switch on the
back of the light. One press turns on the light at full strength, while a second
press reduces power by half. Pressing the switch a third time turns the light
Note: The light may automatically switch from full to half power
automatically to prevent overheating.
Light Output: The LED light outputs 130 lux at full power and 65 lux
at half power at 1 meter (3.3 feet). The light has a beam pattern of 55°
vertical and 72 horizontal°.

Lithium, or Ni-MH rechargeable batteries. No batteries are included with the LED
light. Estimated battery life is as follows:
- Alkaline: Approximately 30 minutes
- Lithium: Approximately 120 minutes
