The ikan IB1000 Dual Color LED Studio Light is a cool-running, dimmable (100 - 10%) LED light that uses very little power and can be operated on AC power or on DC power with optional 12 - 16V pro batteries with separate purchase of a V17PBK-A/S mount system that quickly attaches to the back of the IB1000's back. Adaptability is a key characteristic of the design of the IB 1000. Instead of having you choose between a daylight or tungsten balanced light or deal with cumbersome gel filters, ikan includes 3200K and 5600K LEDs in the same panel. Respond to the prevailing color temperature by setting the IB1000 to either setting or any temperature between them. ikan makes it easy with a large, highly visible touch screen that offers full function control of the output. If your IB1000 is out of reach, ikan has that covered too with the inclusion of a wireless remote control. The IB1000 is rated at 3,103 lux at 3.0' or the equivalent of 500W of tungsten output at 5,600K. The integrated barndoors ensure that the light goes only where you want it to. A stand mount, power cord and a multi-voltage AC adapter are also included.

      Comments about ikan IB1000 Dual Color LED Studio Light:

      We use a pair of these lights for work for an infinite white backdrop. They are bright enough to blow the highlights to give us the proper look. They don't use a lot of power and are cool to the touch. Other than the high price tag I would recommend these lights.

      Note one of our lights died the first month. We got a replacement since then and things have been working out. A few things I don't like about the light is the touchscreen. It's a bit wonky and takes some time to change the color temperature or brightness level. Also, I never use the remote that came with it. It has the tendency to control all of the lights opposed to a single light at a time.

            We been using these only for about a month on stills & video shoots, all I can saw is fantastic! I've used in the past lightpanels, westscott & rotolight - these are simply the best. No flicker when shooting video using sony fs700 at 30fps, 60fps, 120fps & 240fps - even when the lights are dim down.

                Because of a job's impossibly short timeline, I had two of these lights - and a 500-watt model - shipped directly to the location where I was scheduled to shoot. I arrived a day after they did, unboxed everything, set up my lighting, dialed in the illumination and color temperature and captured the footage I needed. I then shipped the whole works home, where I finally read the owner's manuals. These units offer great plug and play performance - and beautiful light. Plus super sturdy construction. I'll be buying more.

                  Comments about ikan IB1000 Dual Color LED Studio Light:

                  This is the first LED panel we have used in the field. Recently brought with us on a doc in Haiti, it solved a few challenges and has come through. Generally, like with many similar LED panels, their weight, cool operation, and ability to turn off then move immediately is great. There are some slimmer and lighter ones for sure, but at a higher price. We loved the ability to both dim and mix color temp with a remote control. Seems like a silly little add on, but not when you're a "lean mean" production crew of one or two.I should add, that the light was brighter than we thought...a nice surprise.My high rating has most to do with the customer service at Ikan. We had plugged the light into an incompatible power source using their battery tap cable, and the light fried. (this is my theory, although when I asked them, they said the battery was within the allowable range.) At any rate, they replaced the light without question and did so in a hurry as we were leaving that week. I couldn't be happier with their attention to us. Classy operation. Earned a fifth star.

                    I picked up this light for interviews. I love it! It's great being able to change both the light temp and the intensity using the remote...and never having to step away from the viewfinder.

                    I recently shot a spot with a spokesperson where I had to battle both daylight and tungsten lighting...and the ikan made it so much easier to find a balance that the camera was able to lock in on...

                      lightweight, sturdy design, powerful, mobile. The battery mount is not very stable. The light color is slightly magenta. Correction with green 1/4-CT necessary.

                        We've only used these lights a few times, but so far we couldn't be happier with them. We especially like that with the Anton Bauer adapter we can power these lights from batteries instead of running power cables to them. That makes lighting in the field a LOT easier. The fact that these lights are dimmable and have variable color temp is fantastic, and they are much brighter than we expected.
