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..

Does the Dracast LED 1000 Pro Daylight put out more foot candles when using the CTO correction for 3200K mode then the Bi-Color 1000 does when in 3200K mode?

According to the manufacturer, the LED 1000 Pro Daylight LED Light would have more output with a CTO filter attached to it than the LED 1000 Pro Bi-Color LED Light when set for 3200 Kelvin.
