Dracast LED1000 Pro overview

  • 1Description

At 5.5 lb the LED1000 Pro Daylight LED Light with V-Mount Battery Plate from Dracast is an ideal choice for the studio or location work where color accuracy, control and flicker-free output are of major importance. The LED1000's daylight balanced output is well suited to outdoor work or for color matching HMI fixtures, while its high CRI of 95 renders colors with precision and fidelity. Dimming from 100-0% is conveniently done with a back-panel knob that adjusts the output with negligible color shift. The low electrical draw of just 60W means a timely return on your investment.

The durable anodized aluminum frame is supported by an sturdy, U-shaped yoke with locking knobs on each side and a standard 5/8" receiver. This LED1000 can be used worldwide thanks to its included 100-240 VAC power adapter. You can also use the onboard V-mount battery plate with 14.8V batteries when mains power is unavailable. Accessories include optional 4-way barndoors for contouring and control of the LED1000's 45-degree beam angle. A carrying case is included.

    Dracast LED1000 Pro reviews

    LED1000 Pro Daylight LED Light with V-Mount Battery Plate is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 55.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from What to do? I don't know if I am too picky or what. I bought 2 panels, and there is a noticeable color shift. The power output is also somewhat different. Maybe in some cases the color shift will not matter that much. But I know I will def have problems if I am lighting a white background with both of them at the same time. Its really frustrating because I already made return once and I feel I need to make another return again! Other stuff like the mounting yoke cap keeps on falling off and I ended up taping it with gaffer tape. And the zipper of the carrying case snappedafter first time use. The translucent protector is so poorly design it just keeps on slides off. I understand its good price, but I certainly didn't expect that I will need to struggle with these issues. Its a battle!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It I purchased this LED1000 light for use with both still photography and motion video. The two big selling points were light quality (including CRI rating and output) and built in battery power options. I've been using it indoors for the past two weeks and love it. Originally I did not get the barn doors, but I 100% need to order a set, plus some type of softbox or similar to help diffuse the light when needed. Overall the quality of construction and light output are very impressive. For video this is my first off camera light panel and I would only want to buy more of this product when needing more light panels.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality and Convenience My endless search for the perfect panel is finally over! This product offers everything a professional videographer could want in a lighting component. The impact of the light output is amazing and has really enhanced the overall quality of my finished product. The panel has a variety of options to adjust in any lighting condition, and the panel temperature does not overheat when more output is needed. Transport of the panel is very easy as it is lightweight and efficient. My favorite feature is the battery pack which has allowed me to include it at any location for any shoot without having to transport cords or find an electrical outlet. I recommend this product to other professionals looking for an upgrade.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great LED Lights These are really the best LED's I've used. They're extremely well built and put out a lot of light. I have a 1000 and 500. I use the 1000 as my key, a bounce for my fill and a 500 for my backlight. Most other LEDs out there don't really pack too much of a punch, but these do. They claim to be a 1000w tungsten equivalent and they are. Just compare the photometrics to any other LED out there. It's not even close. They've been great to bring to location work and not have to worry about flipping a breaker. Also, the color on these lights is really great, perfect balance. I definitely recommend these lights. The best part, you can even run a thick diffusion on them and still have plenty of light to work with and bounce

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy Dracast over other brands I've purchased for my indie production company and personal use 3 Dracast LED fixtures: LED 500s and 1000. I was in a crunch for a 1 day shoot and needed an additional 1000 equivelant LED for 4 point lighting. My Dracast balanced interior lighting giving me throw and filtered color control always to the limits of scene looks. And subject highlights make for great contrasts. Another important quality. When the LED fixture would get knocked and fall over (trust me that rarely occurs), it continues and continued to WORK!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and Lightweight I've had two Dracast LED1000's for a little over a year and they are superb lights. Wanting the latest and greatest, I purchased a couple of these brand new models. I consider the newer model an upgrade from the previous generation. First thing you'll notice is the frame housing. It's cosmetically pretty in blue and it feels denser. The housing is constructed very well and doesn't dent easily compared to other LED lights. The panel throws an almost perfectly pure white light that shoots a long way. It doesn't get hot, it's easy to use, dimmable, and applying filters is a snap.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Quality, Awesome Customer Service I purchased these LED panels to improve the quality of my video interviews, short films, and still photography. I do not regret my decision to purchase one bit. Dracast LEDs are lightweight but durable, have spot-on color accuracy, and are bright. I highly recommend having a pair of LEDs in your arsenal. These lights are very cool and allow my interview subjects to sit for long periods of time without sweat dripping down their faces.In my experience, Dracast has great customer service. They are always enthusiastic over the phone and are willing to help with any buying decisions. I will definitely be a repeat customer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I have owned a lot of lights in 25 years and even Litepanels. For an upcoming series we need two panels and these were my choice after a week plus of hunting around. They arrived and from the first moment I was hooked. Bright, that is an understatement for this 1x1. Easy of use, simple. Build quality, excellent. Packing, which is important, excellent job at the factory. Barn doors, well ok, I don't know why buy they came with it. Diffuser slot is easy to use and they are so cool after hours you never have to worry. Stands with the kit were ok, but a bonus in my eyes. Should you buy these, YES. If you are looking for a 1x1 light with a hight CRI, which you do want, these are a no brainer. Price is excellent for quality and performance. I will be back for more.
