LED complement to Kino Flo Diva

Remember: there are no stupid questions....

I've been using a Kino Flo Diva to light interviews, but I sometimes need to light both sides, interviewer and interviewee. I've been using tungsten sources inside Chimeras, but for daylight situations, I would like to buy something in LED World that would be somewhat similar to the Diva.

Suggestions are welcome. First thought was Quasar Science-modified Kino's, but I'd like to go cheaper. Has anyone had luck with the Dracast 1000, with either a soft box or barndoor-mounted diffusion?

Not specifically, but I do like their products. Picked up one of their small LED panels when they were closing them out a few years back.

Here's a quick & dirty test by a friend of mine of one of their fresnel units:

A fraction of the cost of the ARRI L-7. Might give you more flexibilty. More punch that a panel; a harder fresnel when you need it; bounce it or go through a frame when you need to go softer. Nice dim range. Pretty even thoughout the spot/flood range. Very quiet.

The Diva equivs in the LED world are the Kino Celebs. Pretty nice but they're not cheap of course.

Hi Bob,

do you know these LED panels - - made by VELVETLight?
They are pretty awesome: different sizes, battery supplied, waterproof, ...
Perhaps you can find one that fits your needs.

They are available through several companies in the States:

Kind regards,
