The Dracast S-Series Plus LED Lights are ideal for production setups that are constantly on the move thanks to its slim and ultraportable form factor. The S-Series Plus come in three different sizes, and in daylight or bicolor variants. These panels have been upgraded to include grouping and linking features using Radio Frequency technology (RF) to communicate between units so that multiple lights can be controlled wirelessly with just one fixture. Adjustments to the dimmer and color temperature will control multiple fixtures up to 100' feet away.

From the Dracast Team
The Draco Broadcast team is committed to provide the proper LED lighting for any budget and application. As long as you continue creating content, we’ll be here to provide support and excellent products.
At Dracast, people call us everyday asking the question “Should I get Daylight or Bicolor?” Well, it depends; what do you value more: Output or Versatility?
The difference between the two options is the type of LEDs. Daylight models are loaded with 5600 Kelvin color temperature LEDs, where Bicolors have half 5600K and half 3200K. Daylights will give you maximum output, whereas the Bicolors allow you to seamlessly choose color temperatures between 5600K and 3200K.
Both are great options. So which do you choose? Freedom to easily adjust the color temperature or maximum output? Let’s get more in depth with each option, starting with Daylight.
Reasons to Get a Daylight Panel
More often than not, our customers require more lighting than they originally think. Too many times people call needing more fill light for their green screen, or their key light wasn’t enough. Daylights help reduce the chance of this happening because they provide the maximum output.
Reasons to get a Bicolor
Say you are working out in the field or shooting at sundown; time becomes an even bigger issue than it already is. Popping in a filter is not hard, but every second counts. That time spent juggling filters can be spent shooting. Dialing in different color temperatures on the fly is extremely helpful, especially when you are out in the field and operating under a firm deadline.
So What Does Dracast Recommend?
Do you shoot products in the studio far away from other ambient lighting? Then maybe Daylight is for you. Are you a broadcast journalist filming in several locations at different times of the day? Then maybe go with Bicolor. Whoever you are, choose the type of lighting that is going to get you the shots you need.
So we come back to the same question: Bicolor or Daylight?
Well, we have got to ask…what’s more important to you?
