Dracast LED1000 Plus Reviews

LED1000 Plus Series Daylight LED Light is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 82.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost, but not quite I bought 3 of these lights after seeing them at NAB and was impressed by the build and the specs. Upon use and tested I do not really like them. The color varies from unit to unit. One of our units is green and one is magenta. The work I do requires very color accurate lights which these are not. They are also nearly impossible to put gets on as there is nowhere to clamp to. You can put them in the plastic gel frame thing but that requires a very precise cut gel. I do continue to use them as they are our brightest battery powered light but they are not my first choice in light. They are quite powerful and I rarely use them at full unless I am outside. I really doubt they are the 95 cri advertised.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I own one and it's a good light with modifiers Light is good and colors it reproduces are true. Well made fixture. I purchased before they added the barn doors, stand and honeycomb grate into the package. The light it produces needs diffusion to soften the shadows and once diffused, it can be tough to control where it goes, true with any LED panel. The battery is about a pound heavier because of the charger mechanism that's built in, but I've been testing it running at full power and it lasted almost 2 hrs. I give it 4 stars because of little things like the dimmer seems to start at 10% rather than from 0-100%, the teeth on the tilt rosettes have to be fully released before you can adjust the tilt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful size, weight, and power! Let me start out by saying that I am a small woman. At under 5 feet tall, I needed portable lighting that was truly portable for ME. Dracast's LED1000 Plus Series Daylight LED Light is perfect at just 5.5 lbs and with measurements of 12 by 12 I can take this lighting panel anywhere (and it has gone to many shoots with me out in the field). In addition, this light works hard for such a small item! The light output is bright and crisp despite using very little power (60w), and can make a huge difference when shooting in most indoor locations. This model is a higher-end item and the price tag is reflective of that, but you're getting what you pay for so it's well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Lighting I am a professional wedding and children photographer and I purchased this Daylight LED for my wedding photos and daylight shots. The digital display for adjusting output really lets you dial in your perfect setting for the greats picture quality you can give to your clients. Light in weight and easy to store, this LED panel puts off 5600k of pristine white light. Comes with a built-in DMX input for studio settings, v-mount, and gold mount battery plates for versatile usage capabilities. Highly recommend the Dracast daylight panel for any photographer looking to increase their light quality, will be purchasing more for my business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fully satisfied A friend of mine had one of these and I was really impressed with the portable, flexible lighting aspects. It's a good fill light for dim situations and can be hand held to avoid flat frontal lighting. The color adjustment is nice to either match or contrast existing light sources. This model has the lithium battery, car charger and adapters for every situation which I find far superior to buying batteries over and over. I also like the mounts for either your flash boot or light stand. This item works as well if not better than the name branded ones. I would recommend the on camera video light for those who like to go out at night and get interesting video.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Color Accuracy & Solid Build Dracast's LED1000 PLUS Daylight is the best LED light I've ever tested because its so color accurate and build solidly. As a cinematographer I have a practical understanding of light and light sources. Its important to know that LEDs aren't a full spectrum light source like sunlight. And they can have difficulty reproducing certain key wavelengths of light, leaving gaps in the visible spectrum. In fact, most LEDs today do a poor job of reproducing red (R9), which is important for good skin tone. This is okay if you're just lighting backgrounds, but not so good if you're lighting people. The common CRI measurement fails to tell the whole picture because it assumes a full spectrum source. CRI averages readings from only 8 samples, that is R1-R8. However, the colors which are most important for skin tones, R9, R13, and R15, are omitted in the calculation. Using a Sekonic C-700 Spectrometer, I was able to meter the light from 5' at 100%. The display temp of 5600K metered at 5787K, which is acceptable. The measured output was 2750 lux and there was zero indication of a green or magenta color shift (CCi). Most notable was the CRI rating (Ra) of 96.2, and R9=94.6, R13=97.3, and R15=94.1. Those are outstanding numbers for an LED panel and the best Ive seen yet. The beam spread appears to be about 45 and is controllable with the barn doors or grid. Its very intense and youll want to shoot this through diffusion or bounce it when lighting people but the package is easy to handle and very portable. The panels are built solidly with a nice blue aluminum frame, sturdy yoke, a useful display for color temp and intensity, xlr power, assignable dmx, and interchangeable battery plate. This panel cant be beat at any price and is perfect if you need a lightweight, battery-powered light source for lighting people and need great skin tones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid product! I've been needing a powerful LED light for when I do my YouTube videos. My old one broke and it didn't give enough light in the room. I did research and finally I found this one, the perfect fit. This LED light last longer than my old one. I like that I can use it outdoors because I've always wanted to record outdoors at times. Since my room is upstairs, I don't have any problem carrying this LED light, it is really light to carry. Another thing I like is it doesn't overheat. So no more burning myself, no more overheated room, and no more smoke coming out from it. I definitely recommend this product to my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't live without it! I own a small video production company, and was looking for an LED light that was easy to carry, cool to the touch-even when on for an extended period of time, and was color accurate. I came across this Dracast LED 1000 Plus series light, and I really liked the specs, so I made the purchase. I've been using it for a couple months, and it works fantastically. The color is great, and puts out a lot of throw. It's really light as well, which makes it a breeze to move around and adjust. I also love that this light came with a built-in DMX input for studio settings, and a V-mount and Gold Mount battery plates. This makes it easy to use wherever I need to be. Very satisfied with this purchase!
