    Dracast LED160 reviews

    LED160 5600K Daylight On-Camera Light (Plastic, Black) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value! This light usually costs around $$(I think), but B&H currently has it for $*(when I bought it). It's only made of plastic and I would prefer something other than a shoe mount. One problem with the shoe mount is that it's kind of loose in the body. It clamps securely, as any shoe mount should, it's just wiggles a bit where it meets the housing of the light. However, none of that really detracts from the quality of the product. I'm not using this on my camera, but rather on a stand. I don't think the minor wiggling would effect it even if it was mounted on the top of my camera. The dimmer switch is great, and it's also nice that it has a battery level check too. The light is fantastic and I think, at $80 or less, this is a really good deal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value on the market I love my LED 160 it goes everywhere with me and produces Great Light. The Dracast LED160 gives you more light than other similar lights on the market and the battery can last more than 3 hrs. The CRI is 95 on my light. It is really a great deal and I highly recommend it to all the location photographers and videographers out there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Light I use the light mainly for film/video productions. The LED160 provides high quality light with no noticeable added coloration such as green or magenta as well as no visible color shift over time. The light is evenly distributed and dimmable. It seems to have very high output for its size. In addition, I like that it has standard shoe mounts on the top and sides to easily add additional camera accessories such as mics. Its also great that is takes commonly found and reasonably priced Sony batteries and includes a battery meter. Overall a fantastic light for any one looking for a good quality light. I would like to have seen the option to magnetically attach CTO, diffusion, mini barn doors, and/or a screen protector. Overall it fit all my main needs which was to have a high quality, high output, evenly distributed, and dimmable light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Little Lights! I shoot video instruction courses for my wife's company's website (---------). After white-balancing problems with cheaper lighting, I sprung for Dracast LEDs and am very satisfied. I started with three 160s which were adequate for most talent lighting, but quickly added two 500s (all daylight 5600K) to deliver true white backgrounds. Since I bought the lights separated by several months, I was concerned that the light color might vary slightly, but that was not the case. The lights are all within 50 degrees Kelvin of each other so I can mix and match the 160s and 500s as needed. Colors are very true!! Infinite adjustment with dimming on both 160s and 500s. LED160s are very light (tho not fragile) so you can stack two on your hot shoe for impromptu use with stills or handheld video work. I mostly use them on stands. Excellent product and value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST HAVE IN YOUR COLLECTION I am a professional wedding and portrait photographer that just loves this new LED light by Dracast! My husband owns a film company and uses it often on his commercial and marketing videos! Easy to use on all our cameras and creates beautiful natural light! Can't imagine my collection without it.

Dont be fooled by the cheap immitators * Buy the dracast ligth from B&H and you will be glad that you did.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good light Works great. Dimmer works great, no flicker. Opening for their diffusion card too small...and thus not compatible...didn't see that coming as all my Dracast equipment has always been excellent. Rated poor design because of incompatible size of diffusion slot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adds just enough I was really surprised with the power of this light. I found it to be a great addition to my lighting collection. However, I wish it came with a AC power hook up (the sony batteries do work great).
