Dracast LED500 Pro Overview

  • 1Description

At 4 lb the LED500 Pro Daylight LED Light with V-Mount Battery Plate from Dracast is an ideal choice for the studio or location work where color accuracy, control and flicker-free output are of major importance. The LED500's daylight balanced output is well suited for outdoor work or color matching HMI fixtures, while its high CRI of 95 renders colors with precision and fidelity. Dimming from 100-0% is conveniently done with a back-panel knob that adjusts the output with negligible color shift. The low electrical draw of just 30W means a timely return on your investment.

The durable anodized aluminum frame is supported by an sturdy, U-shaped yoke with locking knobs on each side and a standard 5/8" receiver. This LED500 can be used worldwide thanks to its included 100-240 VAC power adapter. You can also use the onboard V-Mount battery plate with 14.8 VDC batteries when mains power is unavailable. Accessories include optional 4-way barndoors for contouring and control of the LED500's 45-degree beam angle. A carrying case is included.

    Dracast LED500 Pro Reviews

    LED500 Pro Daylight LED Light with V-Mount Battery Plate is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Color temp not consistent I purchased one of these couple weeks ago and liked it, so I ordered another. Setting these up side by side, there is a noticeable color temp difference. The first one I received is slightly warmer than the other. I might consider returning one but I'm not sure which (or both) is actually the stated 5600K.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Light! I use the light mostly for interviews and this light has a great output and awesome color. I've used similar light from different brands and they always suffered from either a green or magenta cast. This light has a high CRI and a perfect color. Built like a tank with a mostly all metal design. Definitely recommend this light for anyone who is looking for a high quality, high CRI light at a reasonable price. Oh yeah, Dracast support is top notch!!!! Answering all my questions and emails super quick and friendly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from annoying pattern this light is great except, due to some fluke, there's often a eggcrate like pattern on whatever you are shooting. no amount of diffusion fixes it. if you are lighting and need the light in a specific spot and you happen to get that pattern, the light becomes very problematic.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light for small spaces Works well in tight spaces and low ceilings. One problem is that yoke doesn't clear back when v-mount battery is used. Not a big issue but does eliminate some mounting options. Most of the accessories are good quality. For the price point, a very useful light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inconsistent Color Temp But Great For The Price I own 3 daylight units. Each of them ranges from 5150-5350K. None are 5600K. All have the same slight green tint, which doesn't really have to be corrected (a 1/8th minus green was too magenta).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't get much better for price/size One 98wh battery kept this light at 100% for a couple of hours.? That is remarkable.?? Yes, it's not bi-color but for the price/size/etc this is a great tool.? Bright enough to put through light diffusion as a key.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice light Plenty bright. I use it as a fill. You should get the barn doors to tame some overspill. You're not getting a tight cut from the Barn doors as there are so many bulbs. Quality Product

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for your lighting needs! While I am by no means a professional photographer, I've had to pick up quite a few tricks of the trade over the years. From conducting interviews on the blogs I work for, taking pictures of items for @, and taking tons of shots of cakes and pastries for my wife's side business - I've needed to pickup quite a few new pieces of knowledge. One of the first things I learned was of course that lighting matters. It can be one of the most important pieces for a quality shot and with needing something I could use on the go that would give me just the right natural light that was bright for events I ended up being recommended the Dracast line from a friend who does do photography professionally. Not only is it light and easy to carry around (which I needed for interviews) but it is also cool to the touch so I don't have to worry about grabbing it to re-arrange positions or carrying it off and out of the way prior to putting it in it's carrying case. While I've primarily used this indoors I've also done a couple of night shots outdoors with it and it does an amazing job there as well. The quality of shots that I've taken has risen dramatically and can't stress how useful this can be for an easy to carry and use lighting solution!

    question

    Does the battery get charged from being on when the unit is using AC so then you can use it outdoors? I don't see any cable to hook to battery directly.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    No, the battery does not get charged that way, you would need a separate charger. I upgraded the batteries to B&H # DR95SI which can be charged w/o the dracast charger. alternatively you could get the dracast charger B&H# DRCH2V

    question

    I see the barndoors for this, but not the gels made to fit. Aren't there gels mad to fit right into the barndoors?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    I haven't come across gels specifically made for the Dracast Led500. B&H has a lot of gel packs, many are 12 by 12 which you can just cut in half and slide right into the barndoors. I went to a local photo store and bought gel sheets, very cheap, and just cut them to fit the frame. I also got an appropriate color gel to change the balance to tungsten.

    question

    What's the approx. Run time on a fully charged battery?
    Asked by: Gary G.
    Gary, It depends on the battery. One Watt-hour runs one Watt for one hour. At full power this light draws 30 Watts. If you dim it down at all it will draw less. A 150 Wh battery will run this light at full power for around five hours. If the light is dimmed down at all, it will run for longer. // Also, if there are any other technical or product related questions, feel free to contact us directly at any time at support@dracobroadcast.com.

    Any suggestions as far as which batteries to buy for this item without spending top dollar?
    Asked by: Sean
    Thank you Jim for that answer. I believe the Dracast V-mount and Gold-mount batteries are some of the less expensive battery options out there, and they have a very good reliability. // Also, if there are any other technical or product related questions, feel free to contact us directly at any time at support@dracobroadcast.com.
