Dracast 2000D overview

  • 1Description

Another addition to Dracast's extensive line of LED panels, the all metal, 20 x 15 x 2.0" LED2000 Kala Daylight LED Panel provides a color temperature of 5600K with a high CRI of 96, indicating accurate and faithful rendition of color. Light intensity is variable from 0-100% and can be controlled remotely via onboard DMX, or with the added enhancement of wireless IR control that can make adjustments at distances up to 100'. Labeled "IRR", this function not only works with Kala lights but also with Silq series lights or multiple lights that includes both series.

Offering directional control, the Kala has a medium-spot beam angle of 45°. The panel is ready for worldwide use thanks to the included multi-voltage power adapter, but Dracast has also provided a V-mount plate for optional batteries when in situations where mains power is unavailable. A soft diffusion panel is also included to take to edge off of the LEDs' output.

    Dracast 2000D reviews

    LED2000 Kala Daylight LED Panel is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quite good output for the price but quality control issues As with the other reviews, I found this light to be good value for the output but has some quality control issues. I purchased the 3 light kit and one out of the 3 lights arrived with a dead screen and loose handles. All 3 lights have poorly designed T screws on the yolk base which have the screw thread the wrong way round so that when you try to tighten them to a spigot the t handle just rotates against the internal bolt and unscrews itself. Its a shame that these issues dampen my enthusiasm for the product as I would consider purchasing more but as I'm in Australia I don't have the money or time to ship back to the US for repair.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from value with caveats I'm a big fan of Dracast daylight LED panels. �I use them for docs and corporate work and like the solid metal construction, compact design that packs well, overall value and light quality/color/output. �I was stunned to see the Kala line of panels' low price point compared to the Plus line of panels which I previously bought and found to be a good value already. �The Kala 1x2 is a great size (packs perfectly into a Pelican 1650 case!), even more compact than the Plus line, and matches the Plus (daylight) lamps quite closely. �The Kala has ethernet DMX which is compatible with the Plus line, and matches the light output of the 1x2 Plus for about half the cost! �That said, there are some design shortcomings in the Kala: �the barn doors aren't as nice, and don't allow gels to be slid into the fixture as with the Plus panels. No honeycomb grid is available for the Kala (a great accessory on the Plus line). There is a plastic diffuser included with the light which is held in place with 2 thumb screws; on my unit one of the two screws broke off when trying to remove it, because there was something amiss in the machining or matching of the screw to the threads in the light. �So there are some quality control issues perhaps.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bright light, needs a second tensioner? I have only used this on two shoots thus far, but have also spent time with a color balance test getting it in line with my other LED lights. First, this puppy is bright and that is a wonderful thing. Easily a stop brighter than the Dracast Pro 1000 as you might expect. I really like that diffuser and barn doors are included in the price but, also as expected on the "value" priced light, there are a couple cheap things, namely the lack of a second tightening handle on the horizontal axis and also a bit of glue missing on the handle/screw that attached the yoke to the stand. A bit of epoxy clay fixed the latter and I am waiting to see if the former is an issue. Rather than using paired teeth to hold those horizontal tensioners in place (though the paired teeth are there small as they may be) Dracast chose to put a rubber washer between them. This means you actually have to loosen the fitting more to get easy rotation, and I also had to snug up the bolt on the other side a tick, but thus far, I haven't had the light slip from an angle it has been set to. The IR remote, or whatever it really is, only works if you set one light manually - you can set others to dim automatically at the same rate. More of a master/slave relationship than a remote. Oh - one great thing - the diffuser has zero color.
