Dynalite RB1000 overview

  • 1Description

This is a DynaLite RB1000 Pencil Light. The RB1000 is ideal for location or studio use. It can bring creativity to your lighting, perhaps by hiding the light inside or just behind small objects. This 1000 Watt/Second flash head has an attached 4' (1.2 m) head cable. It has no modeling light. As the pioneer in compact studio and location lighting, DynaLite was the originator of the wide angle "built in reflector" design which offers ease of use with umbrellas. Every DynaLite flash tube is hand mounted in its user replaceable shock absorbing reflector assembly and tested for flash consistency, power output and color temperature accuracy.

This compact light source uses snap-on modules to attach reflectors, color gels, umbrellas and light stands. It can rotate 360°. A power supply for this flash head is required.

Compact Design
Gets into very small areas of your set, for accent lighting
Easily Replaceable Flashtube
No tools are required to replace this "plug & play" assembly
Removable Reflector
A snap-on 180° reflector comes standard. If desired, gels and diffusion can be attached to the reflector to change the light color and quality.
1/4 -20 Threaded Bottom
A Bogen Mini Ball is recommended to fix the RB1000 to a light stand to allow tilt and swivel.

Dynalite RB1000 reviews

RB1000 Pencil Light is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool Low Cost Addition to your Dynalite Kit This little tube is a great addition to a Dynalite kit. It's small and versatile with just a couple drawbacks. Can't say I use it all the time, but it really helps in certain situations. I'll use it as a bounce to raise overall ambient levels, wash a wall, or hide inside a fixture inside a scene. Can also be rigged into a softbox, umbrella, or bounce into silk in a pinch when you've run out of heads (not ideal, just in case of emergency). My most common use of this bare bulb is inside a retrofitted fresnel fixture. The removable reflector comes off and it illuminates 360 degrees inside the lamp housing exactly as the old tungsten bulbs. Obviously this requires some modifications of the spot, but it works amazingly well. This pencil light doesn't have a modeling light or a fan. On the downside, the unit is fragile and needs to be handled and store carefully. It is basically just a socket with a tube and a pyrex cover. It will also need some modifier or grip to attach to a stand, etc. My only reason for 4 versus 5 stars is for the lack of any means to attach this to existing standard stands or pins. That aside, it's small, light, and capable of handling 1000 watts. Comes in handy when you run out of standard heads and it costs less than half a standard Dynalite head.
