Why RGB? The Advantages of Lightpro DF-811 RGB LED panel

Here at Dragon Image, we are always looking for the latest and greatest lighting technology that will improve the quality of your work tenfold. In recent years, the possibilities that RGB lighting has created for filmmakers and photographers is always evolving, and of them, one RGB light rules them all - the Lightpro DF-811 and DF-812. Here are 5 reasons why you should make the switch to RGB today!

The great thing about the Lightpro RGB is its readily available range of creative presets and effects. You are able to access effects like police lights, lightning and candlelight, all at the push of a button. Having these presets at your fingertips opens up the creative possibilities for your filmmaking, giving you greater production value with less effort. You can change the speed and brightness of these effects, giving you even greater control in that regard. There are also multiple other presets that can be purchased to add to your collection, such as strobe, TV flicker, paparazzi flash and party lights, however they are not initially included.

In addition to these creative presets, you also have complete RGB and HSI control, allowing you to mix and match all colours on the spectrum to get the exact colour you need. There are even built-in Rosco and Lee gel filters, so you can apply those directly to the light if you’re used to using gels or would like a specific gel look.

Despite being an RGB light, you’re still able to use it as a standard bi-colour LED. Unlike a lot of our other bi-colour LEDs with colour temperature ranges of 3200 - 5600K, this light has a colour temperature range of 2800-10000K, giving you a full range between warm tungsten to an almost blue-white light. You can even add magenta and green tint, giving you more flexibility if you’re working with different light sources, such as fluorescent or natural light. Additionally, its extremely high CRI and TLCI ratings of 95+ caps it off as an extremely powerful light with a large range of high-quality features and creative possibilities


Another great feature for this light is its compatibility with DMX, making it perfect for use as a studio light or stage light. With the right connector cable and DMX controller, this feature makes studio lighting a breeze, and will give you a multitude of creative options. Please contact your local Dragon Image if you would like to know more about how to install DMX into your studio or stage space.

In addition to DMX, you can also connect up to 16 of the same light through Bluetooth on the smartphone app that has been designed for this light. This will be covered later on, but it is definitely something to consider if you don’t have a large studio space or means for DMX but you want to be able to control multiple lights at once.

Much like a lot of our lights, the DF-811 has both AC and V-Lock compatibility, giving you flexibility to use this light both in a studio and out on location. Being a 200W light, it doesn’t require a large V-Lock battery to get it running, and it can actually be powered by our Lightpro Nano One V-Lock’s, with a power draw of only 50Wh! 

Finally, another great feature of the DF-811 which I mentioned earlier is its compatibility with the DeSal Sik smartphone app. Through a bluetooth connection, you are able to control every feature of the light through your phone, and as mentioned above, you are also able to connect up to 16 of the same light all at once. The app makes an already extremely powerful light even more user friendly. What more could you want?

So there you have it, just 5 reasons why you need to make the switch to the DF-811 if you are interested in RGB lighting. Lightpro have outdone themselves in constructing an RGB LED light with such powerful specs without compromising cost.
