This is a usefull quick fix and I'm sure works well, however if you shine a little too much light on your photocell you will blow the LED. (is it recording now?)
The use of photocells to relay tally is not at all a new idea, for example many Teleprompters use a similar circuit to turn on the prompter's own tally lamp from the camera without hardwiring.
To do this properly you need a little bit of a circuit to drive the LED from the Photocall correctly. - I suspect that Peter's tally lights use this circuit.
Depending on the circuit used you can even have it adjustable for sensetivity too (Peter, are yours adjustable? - Future option maybe?)
On a side note, Peters lights are of very high quality and I'm sure that you can't beat them for durabilty either. :-)

and then you
still can t be bothered to make my own tally light though.... anyway the wires would pull, i would order the wrong leds and it would nt work...... so in the mean time... Peter has seen more of these broken, means if i buy one off him and it will be strong!
Howard, on your new hummingbird / mk-v / knightrider-superslick monitor, there are a load of tally lights accross the top. How does one feed a signal into this creature? if you dont have the new jbox with lights ablaze.

I never said I invented this idea. In fact, on many occasions I've mentioned where I was told about this. Additionally, many years ago, Jerry Holway wrote out a detailed description of a Tally Light in a matchbox.
Better, neater, smaller than the one in the link provided.
