    Dracast LED160 reviews

    LED160 3200-5600K Variable Color On-Camera Light (Aluminum, Blue) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 63.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well built light.. I am a freelance broadcast cameraman. Most of my work is in news and sports. I have been gradually moving from the hot tungsten lights over to LED. I have several different brands of LEDs, but this is my first Dracast light. I am so impressed with this light. It is so well built and sturdy, compared to so many lights out there. I will mainly use this light on camera and also as a backlight for standups. The fact that it is variable color tempurature makes it a perfect light for on camera work, where you need just a little light on the faces during handheld interviews. I would definately recommend this light. I have found nothing negative about it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice light on sale Solid housing with tight smooth rear knobs. No flickering. A large NP Battery fits snug and secure. Wish it had a slide-in diffuser panel but probably can make one. Not as bright as some of my LED lights but for the price, I'll take it! This one will stay in camera bag since it's light and compact. Thanks BH for the daily specials and quick shipping. Giving it a 4 star because I cannot find a factory diffuser panel in BH's site or Dracast's website and was hoping it be brighter. You'd think they would offer one somewhere.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hooked on Dracast's high CRI This is the most ideal on-camera light I have ever worked with. It will also make a great hair light. It is VERY bright for it's small size. I have attached a picture of it at full brightness in a darkened room so you can get a practical idea of the lux throw. You can purchase a diffusion filter directly from Dracast for this light (recommended - no need for filter frame). As you can see, it can be powered using Sony L series batteries. You can also power the light using a D-Tap cable and external battery for days of use (I am using a V-Mount adapter plus Sony NP-F970's). Dracast is awesome, not just their products but their service. I have been in touch with them, having several questions and concerns over the last week, and they are lightning fast in response time and I am 110% satisfied with their proposed solutions. I not only purchased this light, but the 500LED and 1000LED Bi-color models. Hot lights and gels, good riddance!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light lust I couldn't decide btwn this and the generay 350 i think it is. Double the price for a dracast. I used it last night in a wedding for the trial run. It performed great. Love the light that this emits and its great to be able to match the light in the hall and shoot. I bought a sheet of diffusion paper from B&H for $ and cut the size I needed and it worked great. Weddings i think maybe we dont need diffusion so much for on camera but I'll use it for other scenarios. heres the paper I used >search (ROE216S)Also theres nothing like holding a piece of equipment that feels like it can take a drop.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have my doubts about these reviews! Whenever I read a review about Dracast products here I get a feeling that most or some of them are not genuine. I have been looking at Dracast lights of different kind and would like to add them to my lights arsenal but I am getting increasingly concerned about the reviews here. I never had this feeling about any other brand or product line. Is it just me? For instance there are 7 reviews here and only one of them is a verified buyer but the way they talk about CRI and build and such... I dunno, I don't feel like trusting this brand anymore. May be I am reading too much into this. I gave five stars because I didnt want to give less just in case I am just bonkers :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright Light This light has everything you can ask for for an on camera tool. While weighing a 1/2 pound, it is solidly built, and it is BRIGHT. Equivalent to a 160W light when at full capacity and the middle color temp. Bright then any other on camera light I have worked with. However, the CRI is beautiful so the light is clean. Be sure to pick up a diffusion panel from Dracast - you'll need it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, high quality light This light feels very solid -- no plasticky feel here. I expect the aluminum housing will be very good at dissipating heat during operation. The knob adjustments for color temperature and light intensity work smoothly and provide fairly fine adjustment for each. The light is very bright at full intensity (and even below full intensity). As someone else has suggested, I have purchased diffusion filter material to soften the output somewhat and will cut it to fit. There are slots cut in the aluminum housing that should allow me to cut small tabs on the diffusion material to be able to (essentially) clip it to the light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great LED light Small. light weight and sturdy construction. Wish it came in black with aluminum housing. Has thebattery tester to show how much power it has. It's nice and bright, with dimmer and temperature controls, plus 1-4" top socket. Comes with power cord for outlet powering of light. The case is nice, though not very protective, and comes with shoulder strap. Fits right on top my dslr with the supplied ball socket shoe mount. If only barn doors could be attached, then it would be perfect.
