Dracast LED1000 Plus Bi-Color Reviews

Solid working set of lights, some metal work is not great.

By Amber
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2020-12-22

The light quality is pretty good and the temps and brightness are consistent from light to light. This includes when using batteries. Not a five star because the filter frames were all bent and a little too thin to fit the plastic filters. It was really difficult to get them together and each one had issues to varying degrees. For the price, you'd expect these to be a step above the cheap ones, but in that particular piece, they're terrible. The case is ok. It's literally just the plastic, no foam or anything else, so be prepared to do a little DIY work if you plan on shipping these with confidence after they've been unboxed.

Light weight and Powerful`

By Brent

This is a great light with the softbox attachment.  Very light weight and very powerful.  It has a great wrapping quality about it. When using a battery with it the draw has a consistent feel throughout the entire battery life.  My only complaint with this light is that it needs to come with either the barn doors or the soft box.   Softbox is definitely needed unless you like the look of the harsh led light.

Awesome and Versatile Light

Super easy to use. A full charged v mount will last a good bit of time. If you are looking for a ton of light I would advise going for the daylight balanced. The bicolor are about half the output at most color temperatures.

Do Not Purchase This Light.

By Michael
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2017-09-06

I purchased three of these lights. In the six months that I have owned them, each light has malfunctioned and required repairs by the manufacturer. My issues with these lights have ranged from non-responsive intensity and color temp controls to failing hardware and dead LED bulbs. I no longer feel confident enough in these lights to bring them in the field. These lights have failed during interviews and in front of my clients. When I purchased these lights, the were selling for $1,044.66. So, I've spent over $3,000.00 on lights that I can't use. B&H's solution to this problem was to offer me a $40.00 gift card. Do not purchase this light.

It lasted a year...

Bought two of these 5/2019...one of them has now crapped out 7/2020. I've put up with a lot from Dracast in the name of inexpensive lighting instruments, but for this LED panel to stop working with the small amount of hours it has on it is unacceptable.

Fragile and inaccurate control knobs

By Joe
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2019-10-23

I liked this light at first, but I quickly realized how fragile the control knobs are. There is no way to safely store the light in the case that it comes in because the terribly fragile knobs jut out. I've sent this light to be repaired several times because of that. Also, it's very difficult to hone in on any desired color temperature or brightness because the knobs aren't very accurate.

Good but not bright enough

By Jonathan
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2019-09-16

I do a lot of one man shoots with my Fs5ii. I bought this to be a key light for interviews, but in bright environments this light doesn't add much (I did buy the bi-color version). I even added soft box via Chimera 1x1 and bought separate diffusion screen to soften the light, so now I have that set up. I am going to try and use as a backlight or fill light, and I just bought an Apurture 120Dii to use as a key light. This light is good and sturdy and easy to move and setup, it just isn't bright enough.

Very little light output

By Greg

Very disappointed. The Astra 6x will break on you, but if you don't mind sending it in for repairs you will get twice the output.

question

What's the weatherproof-ness like in outdoor ENG applications? Able to withstand heavy rain or even a light-drizzle?
Asked by: Geoffrey
I believe it can't withstand even a light drizzle. The keys are not covered at all. Try the Arri L5-C or L7-C (not the same light since they are fresnels but with a diffusion it can work it out). Great lights and can withstand rain! Although they are doubling the price of Dracast panels..
