Dracast LED500 Pro overview

  • 1Description

At just 4.0 lb the LED500 Pro Bi-Color LED Light from Dracast is an ideal choice for location work, interviews and small sets where color accuracy, control and flicker-free output are of major importance. Variable color temperature from 3200K-5600K or anywhere in between means that you can quickly match the prevailing ambient or artificial light balance with a simple twist of a knob while others are still applying filters. Dimming is equally convenient via another knob that adjusts the light intensity from 100-0% 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 oversized, U-shaped yoke with locking knobs on each side and a standard 5/8" receiver. The LED500 can be used worldwide, powered by the included 100-240 VAC adapter in the studio, or by Gold Mount batteries in the field. Four-way barndoors for contouring and control of the LED500's 45-degree beam angle are available separately. For protection during transport and storage, a carry case is included.

    Dracast LED500 Pro reviews

    LED500 Pro Bi-Color LED Light with Gold Mount Battery Plate is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality compact solution In the last year, I've phased out using fluorescent instruments Kinos, Lowel Rifas, etc. because they're just too problematic for traveling. I flew to China with three Rifas and the big flo tubes were a royal pain. I looked at many manufacturer's LED solutions, but the tradeoffs were build quality vs. price. These Dracast LED instruments are in the sweet spot. Super sturdy aluminum bodies, nice adjustment mechanisms, and best of all, high-CRI LEDs that produce a flattering light at tungsten to daylight color temps. I shoot tons of corporate execs in their environments. So being able to quickly dial in the color temperature without pulling out a jelly roll is fantastic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the Money I really love these lights! It's very portable and convenient to use, it does it jobs very well and is very bright. There's also a function to alter the light settings to find one that I'm comfortable with. One of the bonuses that I love about it is the fact that it doesn't really get hot like some LED lights! It doesn't heat up so it's safe to move and carry it around, unlike some that burns when you touch it by accident. My favourite part of the light is the fact that you can also toggle the colour settings, so you can blend them to create a nice ambience or whatever atmosphere. Very happy with it and it's definitely worth its price

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has become my all around go to. I love this little light. Small with a lot of punch and a solid design, both in durability that will stand up to the rigors of varied production and in it's thoughtful build and acceptance of accessories. This light has become such a standard on most every set up that my feature gaffers have it ready (often to hollywood) at all times. Fantastic at night as just the right fill against the big back lights I use and just as useful during the day on walking shots, the LED500 delivers great punch for its size and beautiful color fidelity. From documentary to narrative to commercial, this unit goes everywhere with me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gift! I bought this LED light as a gift to my boyfriend. He needed something portable and lightweight. When he received the product, he was really happy with it because the LED panel doesn't get hot or puts out a lot of light. What he liked the most was the color accuracy and how the lighting is similar to natural sunlight. There is no green/magenta to it which is very common with other LED lights. He uses the LED light for about 1.5 hours and there hasn't been any dip in color or flickering, which is great! My boyfriend was very satisfied with the gift and he is looking into other products from this site.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You're going to love it! Being a semi-professional videographer, I found this light to be easy to travel with, produce just the correct amount brightness, color accuracy and contain all the features I need to bring my project to life with superior professional quality. I love how the LED is cool to the touch allowing me to pack up and move on to the next project quickly for ease of busy days. It's a very powerful light and it's so convenient to mix color temperatures, this being a bi-color model. High quality, highly recommended product! Very pleased!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest lights I have ever set up! My boyfriend is an event and wedding videographer and I usually end up tagging along on his bigger events to help him out. It was never a fun experience having to carrying and set up all his equipment with him. But I found these lights and I convinced him to try them out. We both ended up loving these lights! They make the process so much easier for me and they give him all the light he needs. They are so easy to carry and I don't have to worry about burning myself anymore. I would highly recommend these lights to everyone!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good We paired this 500 with another Dracast LED 1000 and it is a very flexible light. We use this 500 as a backlight, background light, and kicker in conjunction with the 1000 for interview shooting in the field. It is very bright and the ability to dim and change color is agreeable with mixed lighting situations. The bi-color model saves us time from carrying and swapping in gels. Because this comes with a built-in Anton Bauer plate, we can use the same Anton Bauer batteries we use on our cameras for on-the-field operation.
