The ikan ID500-v2 LED Studio Light with Touch Screen Dimming continues in the tradition of its predecessor, the ID500 by offering the equivalent of 300W of tungsten power at 5,600K in a slim 5.8 lb package. The big difference is that the ID500-v2 does away with old-school knobs in favor of an LCD touch screen with smooth dimming control from 0-100% in 100 steps. For units mounted overhead or in other hard to reach places, the ID500-v2 comes with an RF remote control that regulates power on/off, dimming and power output.

The ID500-v2 has built-in barndoors, a convenient integrated handle and a multi-voltage power supply for world-wide use. Optional adapter plates for V-Mount or Anton Bauer batteries are available.

LED Source
The LEDs in each panel have the tungsten equivalent of 300W while drawing only 36W. The lamps last many thousands of hours making them virtually maintenance-free
Power Options
If you need Anton Bauer or Sony V-Mount power options, ikan has you covered with the PBK-A-X or PBK-S-X professional battery mount system. This simple device mounts directly to back of the ID500-v2 via the included VESA mount receiver slots.
LCD Touch Screen
The LCD touch screen panel on the rear makes it simple to dim the lights in increments from 0-100%. No more guessing with old school analog rotary knobs

        Use this as interview light and it gets the job done, stays cool for hours on end. Seems smaller then the older version but overall happy with this product

        Get the "older" model, much better

        By Jorge

        from Jersey City, NJ

        Comments about ikan ID500-v2 LED Studio Light with Touch Screen Dimming:

        Unlike the ID500, this is a downgrade of that model, pay a bit more and get the "older" model, it is much better. Fortunately B&H carries both. This version 2 of the classic ID500 does not even have color temp control, and the remote control is a joke.

          My initial impression was a very sturdy product surprisingly heavy for a LED light.
          It did arrive with a loose screw in the unit, however it is working fine.
          Definitely an upgrade from my cheap plastic small LED lights

            This is a great system with everything you need to set up and transport a powerful consumer-grade light kit. The only problem is the remote control units. They have the look and feel of a cereal box toy. It's hard to understand why ikan would make sucha a great system and supply it with such flimsy remote control units. Kind of like garnishing a steak and lobster dinner with dog biscuits.

                I bought this primary to take photos and videos of the night critters that come to our patio. The eyes of these critters reflect the light so using an on-camera flash made their eyes bright white. The ID500 solved this problem and its variable out-put controlled by a remote made it possible to dim the light until I was ready to use it. The light covered enough area to video the critters moving around.

                  Comments about ikan ID500-v2 LED Studio Light with Touch Screen Dimming:

                  I bought 3 of these units to make up a 3 light kit and replace my 160 LED lights which weren't adequate in larger spaces.

                  The build quality is perfectly decent and better than I expected. The lights attach securely to the stands and are really easy to use. The barndoors, switches and reflectors are all decent quality and engineered properly.

                  I can't see a color difference between the 3 lights so they all seem to be of the same quality and color temp.

                  These lights are particularly effective over short distances (up to 2 or 3 metres) but as you'd expect with LED lights they fall off pretty quick after that.

                  I knew that would be the case and these lights perform at least as good as I'd hoped - possibly better.

                  They are silent, no noises, buzzes or whistles.

                  I'm very happy and would recommend these to anyone looking for a professional lighting solution when they can't afford the big name brands.
