Dracast LED1000 Pro overview

  • 1Description

At 5.5 lb lb the LED1000 Pro Bi-Color LED Light with V-Mount Battery Plate from Dracast is an ideal choice for location work, interviews and small sets where color accuracy, control and flicker-free output are of major importance. Variable color temperature from 3200-5600K or anywhere in between means that you can quickly match the prevailing ambient or artificial light balance with a simple twist of a knob while others are still applying filters. Dimming is equally convenient via another knob that adjusts the light intensity from 100-0% with negligible color shift. The low electrical draw of just 60W means a timely return on your investment.

The durable aluminum frame is supported by a sturdy, U-shaped yoke with locking knobs on each side and a standard 5/8" receiver. The LED1000 can be used worldwide, powered by the included 100-240 VAC adapter or by optional V-Mount 14.8V batteries. Accessories include optional 4-way barndoors for contouring and control of the LED1000's 45 degree beam angle. A carry case is included.

    Dracast LED1000 Pro reviews

    LED1000 Pro Bi-Color LED Light with V-Mount Battery Plate is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best LED Light!! I do photography professionally out of my home. I have a nice studio filled with everything I need. However, the room would get really hot and uncomfortable after a short while with the lights I was using. I decided to give this a try because I heard such good things about it. I am very impressed! This is exactly what I needed! The light is light weight so I can move it with ease and it stays cool so I can adjust it while its on without worrying about getting burned. The color is beautiful and puts out a lot of throw. My studio stays cool and my sessions can last longer. I love this light and highly recommend it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unexpectedly great LED I purchased a few of these LED 1000's to light a studio for webcast. Traditional hot lights weren't going to cut it for our configuration because of the heat in a relatively small space. I'm pleasantly surprised by just how much punch these hot lights put out. They are as powerful as Arri hot lights, without the added toll on heat and energy. Having a few of these Bi-Colors on hand is great since you can have a nice soft blending of color temperatures. Overall, a great LED light that packs a really good punch for what you pay for. They're easy to transport too, when you're on the go, and are well made, in general.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Light for Work-On-the-Go! I do media work locally and overseas, so travel is a major part of my job. That said, I needed an LED panel that was easy to carry around, cool to the touch, bright, color-accurate and puts out a lot of throw. I took the advice of a friend who does a lot of freelance work and looked into the Dracast LED1000 Pro. It's lightweight, beautifully bright and can toggle and blend color temperatures. Best of all, when I submit the invoice to my boss, he delightfully told me that we came in under budget! Awesome product and it's always a pleasure to do business with the folks at B&Hwho help me out when I don't know all the right names for what I need!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal Color! This product helps bring your pictures to the next level! As soon as you get it, you'll realize how useful it is to finally be able to use an LED light that has such consistent color temperature. There's absolutely no lingering green or magenta color spikes. No matter how long you use it, whether it is 30 minutes to 2 hours, there's absolutely no dip in color or even any flickering! It's also a bi-color model, so I can change the temperature at any time between 3200-5600k very easily. I'm extremely impressed with this, and I've been recommending it to all of my photography contacts and I hope you will decide to buy it too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just plug and play. Awesome product. I had two of these lights shipped straight on location for the first day of my shoot. They're ridiculously easy to set up, minutes after unpacking them from the box. The panel produces a constantly bright light, which is slightly blue-ish but doesn't give off any harsh or discolored tones. Some LED lights I have used can be punchy but eventually start flickering or dimming down. Not so with these lights. An hour or two later, it is still producing clean light in any setting. I'll be buying some more soon. These lights are well built, not bulky, compact, and perform effortlessly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fruitfull device I was prescribed by a companion and he suggested me to try this out. Thereafter i simply used this as a test and i was inspired. The best one i have ever used. This device is perfect in various fields like area work, meetings and many more where shading control and gleam free yield are of great significance. Darkening is controlled in a very easy way through a knob that alters the light force with immaterial shading movement. Not only this, the low power consumption of only 60W is profitable for your venture. This device contains almost all the features which a professional needs & it is also very adorable to use and travel,easy to operate in other word its perfect for every photographer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Good as It Gets This Dracast LED1000 has everything one could ever want out of a 1x1. The light is as bright and accurate as advertised. Few LED's can emulate this quality and even fewer have as good of a throw as this LED1000 does. You would think there would be a performance tradeoff in squeezing more power and brightness out of the light at the expense of energy efficiency. However, this light still manages to be cool to the touch, cool on the subjects, and cool to operate. I've used this light, as well as other Dracast LED's, in documentary shoots which require a fair share of studio and location filming. Through extensive use and travel, this Bi-Color is a reliable workhorse panel. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High performance at a good price I have tried all manner of LED lights from the cheaper ones to Hollywood production panels and these Dracast ones provide the best value. They produce so much soft light output to the point that it exceeds the high-end models. The light is well put together and sturdy, with an all-aluminum frame that does not get hot. It's easy to dial in the color temp and beam intensity with the dual on-board controls. Buying one with a V-Mount battery adapter makes it easy to use in studio or on the road. This is a top-notch light and a supreme value, especially for a mid-size budget.
