Dracast LED500 Pro overview

  • 1Description

At 4 lb the LED500 Pro Daylight LED Light with Gold 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 Gold 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 Gold Mount Battery Plate is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bang for the Dollar I purchased a few of these Dracast LED 500 models: two daylight and one bi-color as a kind of custom kit. These lights are adequate in large spaces but really shine (literally and figuratively) in short, close-up distances. The color output on all of the Dracast lights are superb with nicely even, soft, and accurate light. The build quality on the lights is much better than expected. They look unique in that blue frame but when you knock on it, it's solid aluminum. The lights are well put together with no loose or flimsy parts. I'm very happy with these lights and if you're looking for a solid battery-powered lighting fixture that's not too expensive, look no further.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive starter light I grabbed a few of these LED 500s to film content for a YouTube channel at a local exhibition. Seeing how we would do some roaming along the show floor, we needed lights that were portable and effective enough. I'm glad to say that these lights performed better than expected. The light output is quite strong for an LED and very bright. The construction is better built than other LEDs and the light still manages to be easy to carry around. This is a good starter light, if you're unsure about converting to LED or new to filming with LED. I'm looking to buy a few more in the future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I purchased this light after a videographer friend of mine recommended it as it is lightweight and portable so I am able to take it with me to different photo shoots. I must say, I am pretty impressed. The color accuracy is spot on unlike my other LED panel I had before this. The lighting I get from this daylight is as close to natural sunlight as it gets. With it's consistent color temp and lightweight / portable features I must say this is the best light I have gotten my hands on to this day. Looking forward to purchasing another one as a back up for shoots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I couldn't ask for more As a wedding videographer I was in the market for a new light that was more portable and lightweight than my last. A colleague recommended this one mainly due to the color accuracy. It's very bright and provides more natural lighting for my client's big day. I've been really grateful for the solid recommendation because this is one impressive light. The color temperature is very consistent and I don't find the color spikes I used to get with my previous one. The fact that it's LED means it doesn't get hot and it is the lightest weight light I've ever used.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, terrific build quality It has been a few months since I bought a few of these LED500 models and so, I thought I'd share a review of them. These lights have served me very well on a few short film productions. They run at cool temperatures even at full brightness, they're diffused well, and they make our characters and locations look good too. Normally, you'll get some kind of green tint with LED lights and you'll have to edit them in post-production. These lights saved us some time in editing because of how pristine the light output was. This light is on the pricey side, seeing how you can buy 2 or 3 of these at the same price. For filmmaking, the price for the Dracast LED 500 is definitely worth it because of the features and time saved in production.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from White Light, No Heat I was looking for a relatively inexpensive, lightweight studio light that was great for taking video and still photos in a classroom, studio, and for location shooting. This light was everything I needed and then some. The light output is just about at a perfect 5600K on full blast and it is very bright. Even then, the light is cool to the touch while it's running, which is some accomplishment given that there are LED lights that run hot for all that extra power. The build is lightweight and copes well to occasional bumps in transport.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great LED Light I'm quite pleased by the natural lighting this light produces. It is the closest to daylight I've found. I'm impressed how long it can be used and doesn't get hot. I also appreciate how lightweight and portable this LED panel is since I'm constantly traveling to different locations for video shoots. I'm grateful it was recommended to me, and I'd happily recommend it to anyone else.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I was recommended this light for my setup as I'm an up and coming video director for indie movies. I can say without a doubt that this light works very well and is amazingly durable. It's lightweight and portable for my on the road set needs and the brightness provides a quality essence for shots that require an artistic yet related view. I recommend this wholeheartedly.
