Metz, the lighting expert, presents: mecalight L1000, the most powerful and innovative LED- video light we have ever built.
1000 Lux (@ 1m) / Bi-Color ( 2800 to 5700 K) / CRI 95 / splash-water protection (IP 44 at X-version) / power supply via Micro-USB / wireless- regulation via Bluetooth / and much more
Weight & dimensions
245 gr. weight and a convenient size of 15,4 x 10 x 4,6 cm: The currently most compact and lightest video light with 1000 Lux (@1 m).
Accessories (e.g. a microphone) can be attached to the Cold-Shoe quick and easy.
SMD-High performance LEDs
BiColor SMD-High performance-LEDs (2800 - 5700 Kelvin) guarantee a constant illumination of 1000 Lux.
Three 1/4 inch connection threads (left, right and on the bottom side of the device) help to attach the light, e.g. on a lighting triopd.
Contrasty OLED display and comfortable, intuitive operation with only three control elements.
The mecalight L1000 can be operated with a battery compartment P6 (6 AA NiMh batteries or alkaline manganese batteries), L-Type Li-Ion battery (NPF) or Micro-USB (eg. Powerbank).
Astonishingly bright. Surprisingly compact.
The video light with unique Metz lens concept:
The new developed Metz lens matrix reduces multiple shades to a minimum.
Metz video lights are flicker-free: No stripes, no flickers on the picture.
Precise color rendering for semi- as well as professional claims and best possible light.
Constantly high light output in the range of 2800 – 5700 Kelvin through intelligent energy control.
Metz Bi-Color lens concept
The new high performance SMD LED video lights mecalight L1000 BC and L1000 BC X operate with an unique lens concept: The special arrangement of the LEDs ensures an ideal color rendering without colour cast and substantially reduces multiple shadows.
An important quality feature for semi- and professional LED lighting, especially in film recordings is flicker-freedom as well as avoiding stroboscope effects. These image errors occur with LED video lights of poor quality, especially by high speed recordings or dimmed light.

Only selected premium LEDs with a color rendering index (CRI) of up to 95 are used in the Metz mecalight L1000. The higher the CRI value, the less unwanted color deviations occur in the image.

Constant light output
An intelligent light regulation controls the energy supply of the mecalight L1000. This allows the user to work with 1000 Lux of light at any color temperature. With other Bi-Color LED video lights, the warm and cold-white LEDs radiate only in the middle Kelvin range at the same time and reach the full indicated light output only in this state.
Perfect light supplemented through attractive features:
Up to seven Metz mecalights could be controlled parallel via smartphone.
The outdoor version mecalight L1000 BC X is protected against splash water and foreign substances.
Interface for external power sources (e.g. powerbanks) and firmware-updates.
Metz, the lighting expert, stands for highest quality standards and reliability.
Integrated Wireless function
The mecalight L1000 has an integrated Bluetooth module. With the Metz mecalight app for Android and iOS, up to seven lights can be connected and remotely controlled. In wireless mode, the coupled video lights can be grouped and the illuminance as well as the color temperature can be controlled continuously.
Protection against splash water and foreign substances
The L1000 BC X is certified according to protection class IP44. The outdoor version of the L1000 is thereby protected against the intrusion of foreign substances (> 1 mm) as well as against splash water (e.g. rain). Precondition for this protection is the power supply via battery compartment P6.
Battery compartment P6: strong, robust, smart
The battery compartment P6 was developed by Metz especially for the mecalight L1000 in Germany and protects the video light reliably against dust and splash water (protection class IP44). In addition, an intelligent temperature monitoring also protects the battery compartment from overheating.
USB interface for firmware updates and external power sources
The micro USB interface of the L1000 is used for firmware updates as well as for connecting an external power supply: Like this, videographers can simply use the charger of their smartphones or a powerbank as power source for the LED light. An external power supply with a special connector is not necessary.
The Metz mecalight MBL-01 diffuser lens (in scope of delivery of the mecalight L1000 BC X) provides remarkably soft and uniform light. In addition to the high-quality material, the optimum distance between the lens and the diffuser plate, which is created by a new mounting angle, is decisive. The distance can be adjusted by the user at any time and thus the hardness.

Made in Germany quality
Whether light output, handling or reliability: Metz flash units and video lights convince by first-class quality - many independent tests and awards prove this. Experienced employees and a consistent quality management are the reason for this.
