    Looks like is made by Dracast and is at a substantial discount at B&H while supply last. I'm wondering if this is an obsolete model or what else? Anyone have any experience with this unit?

    All the reviews are extremely recent so I'm guessing this is a new product.
    The discount is huge.
    Very tempting.
    I like the smaller size too.

    But it lists the power at 32W, while my Aputure 672s goes up to 45W.
    I was thinking this Dracast might be more powerful because of the 1024 LEDs, but I already know that the number of bulbs has little to do with output power.
    So, until I can actually use one, I'm not inclined to go after one of these over the Aputure.

    Ticks a lot of the boxes, but no mention of light output, only the 32W draw. Good luck, Vic!

    Cool.
    I'd certainly dig hearing your take on them.

    I own two of the bi-color ones - they are good lights and color is accurate except 5600k is closer to 5200k. Against my Dracast LED1000 lights, the bi-color is about 3/4 as bright.

    I'm a huge fan of this - obviously a different form factor - but can be used with "EZ OPEN" Fotodiox Softboxes or other light modifiers like Bowens Fresnel... More flexibility from one light source. "White" is the Daylight one... "Yellow" is the Tungsten one.

    I just picked up one of these from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FPDMXZ2...words=1344+led in a pinch on a recent shoot and I was surprised by the punch (1000w equivalent) in such a small form factor. Good solid build, but doesn't take batteries...

    Yeah, I think it's like 82-83 but not seeing any color spikes on my scopes. IMO 80 is lowest CRI for photgraphic uses and at <$200 it packs a lot of light... Oh and CT pretty accurate at 5400K
