Camera light with built-in stud

Kit Description:

This kit is used to make an LED light that can be mounted directly to any camera with a 1/4-20 tripod mount. (standard on practically every camera). It is especially useful to help illuminate the photographed area during video recording or to assist in focusing in dimly lit areas.
Please note: The resistor that is included with this kit is chosen to be used with 3 NiMh rechargeable batteries. Using alkaline batteries will result in higher voltage and higher current which may reduce the life span of the LEDs. For alkaline batteries a resistor value between 16 and 26 ohms is more appropriate. Contact us for special order.

Tools Required:

Power Drill, or powered screwdriver like this
