ikan IB508-v2 overview

  • 1Description

The IB508-v2 Bi-Color LED 3-Light Studio Kit from ikan is a good choice for small studios or location photographers or videographers who need lighter weight and battery-powered options. The kit includes three IB508-v2s, each with batteries, charger, AC adapter, diffusion filter, 6.25' light stand, and a stand mount. A padded kit case is included to store and transport it all.

The 13 x 6.75" IB508-v2 Bi-Color LED panel has a variable color output of 3200 to 5600K. Since the IB508-v2 generates no heat, weighs 3.1 lb, and measures just 1" in thickness, it can easily meet the challenge of tight spaces while eliminating concern about damage, hazard, or talent discomfort.

While the 10-100% dimming and variable color remove the need for repositioning the light or adding filtration, ikan provides a diffusion filter to take the edge off of the crisp LEDs.

The IB508-v2 is powered by the included multi-voltage AC adapter for worldwide use or by the two provided Sony L-type batteries for use when mains power is unavailable on location. The light also comes with a charger and 5/8" stand mount. Its reflective 4-way barndoors not only allow you to contour the light output, but fold flat across the panel to form a protective shell.

ikan IB508-v2 reviews

IB508-v2 Bi-Color LED 3-Light Studio Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent set of LED lights. This is a fantastic versatile set of LED lights. Great quality build, good throw for the price. Expectedly there is multiple shadows produced when un-diffused however a little diffusion works well. The included frost diffusion is good but not enough to produce one consistent shadow on a even surface. I only wish they sold additional inserts like full diffusion or half diffusion as the magnetic insert is so simple to work with I would love to buy more. Still the barn doors have clips for your own gels and are a really nice quality. The removable intensifiers on the barn doors are also good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what we needed We're pretty run and gun style shooting. We've been running into lighting issues where our traditional lights just weren't an option. No power, no time for them to cool down ect. We haven't had the LEDs very long so I can't speak to durability. However, the ball head that comes in the pack will not last long. Stands are ok, nothing special. That's stuff that I can change or already have parts I can use instead. So far having the adjustable color temp and power has been amazing! Have batteries instead of power is awesome. And they're the same batteries we use for our Ninja Blade so that's a big plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits my needs perfectly! I'm a freelance videographer and do most of my work solo and so I needed a light kit that was easy to setup and came with a wide variety of options. I purchased this kit a month ago and have been very pleased with it so far. The fact that all three lights fit into the case and the lights are bi-color AND dimmable is a HUGE step above my previous kits. But I have to say the best thing about these lights is that they have the option to run on batteries...which are included! Overall I recommend this kit and have no complaints thus far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful , small and light wieght , good color temp & stands Amazing lights, very powerful. For indoor use for an interview ex you would only need to have the dial set at 60% of its strength . Love the you can set the color temperature , it is a bit blueish and cold on max but at 4000k the skin tones look great. The light stands are very small when packed up, but at full height they are very high almost 1.8 meters.. 2 lights with batteries and lights stands fit in a small camera bag. so nice not to have to drag around long extensions cords any more. The lights can run of wall power as well, but batteries last a long time. With 3 of these lights you have most lighting needs sorted. The bag is anise padded bag but for taking in on a plane i bought a big pelican case and slipped the whole bag in there..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Lights, Awful Fixtures Love having bright, bi-coloured lights. The battery is also excellent, it's been great not needing to plug them in for each shoot. The stands are a bit flimsy, I'd hesitate to use them in a very windy situation but for my filming needs (indoors, or non windy situations), they've been entirely sufficient. However the fixtures which connect the light to the tripod are brutal- There's no lock, so once you slide the lights in, you are relying purely on gravity to make sure they don't accidentally slide out. But even if that part of the process is working in your favour, there's another piece on the same fixture which can pop off should the angle be too much. That bit is also quite tricky to put back together. Not only is this dangerous for the lights themselves, but especially for cast and crew working nearby. If you buy this product, I would suggest immediately purchasing different fixtures which can be about 40CAD/ 30USD (as of 2017) per piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freedom! Best way to describe these lights. We shoot a lot on-location. Often it is a short session but we need good lighting, especially for green screen and interior scenes. These lights allow us to set up and take down very quickly without the hassle of looking for AC outlets and laying wires. We can even use them outdoors where we need a little fill or backlighting with no access to AC power. They allow us the Freedom to do it all. They're rugged, top-quality lights that are built to last. Great heavy-duty nylon cases as well. Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic lighting kit leaves nothing to be desired We are absolutely thrilled with this lighting kit for a number of reasons. The build quality is fantastic; the light stands are not the cheap variety, the barn doors are solid and the hinges will not bend like they have on other lights we own, the knobs and LCD on the lights seem to be well-designed, the bag is also well-made and contains removable velcro dividers. Everything is included, which is impressive: three magnetic diffusers, a full count of six batteries instead of just two or four, as well as three AC adapters when they could have included only one or two. Perhaps we most appreciate the light stand toppers which allow the lights to flex and angle (another kit we purchased a while ago required these to be purchased separately, but you guessed it - three of them are included in this kit). The bi-color capability of the lights is wonderful and the LCD readout ensures we have the correct color temperature and sufficient battery levels so there are no unexpected outages. We were initially concerned that purchasing bi-color lights might come with a caveat as far as brightness is concerned, since the middle color temperature value uses 50% of cool nodes and 50% of warm nodes. However, these lights are plenty bright, and on our first shoot with this kit we had our lights set between 40%-60% power with little to no ambient light. Having three lights in one bag along with a comprehensive set of accessories is a huge win for us, and as a bonus we had enough room left over in the bag to also include several other LED lights we already owned, making this bag the only thing we need to grab to have nearly every lighting need covered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Equipment great. Travel case okay. The lights and tripods were all safely and quickly shipped. Haven't had a chance to fully use them yet, but the everything worked properly when I set up a test. Batteries come charged which was nice. The lights can put off some heavy duty light! BUT... The reason for only the 4 Stars is because the big black square case that comes with isn't big enough to fit the tripods. The tripods get there own carrying case, which is fine, but having everything in one case would have been much better/easier. The Tripod case is also twice as long as the folded down tripods, which makes it kind of awkward, but I suppose it would be useful if you had extension poles or other such things (I do not). There are built-in separate pockets for each tripod within it. The square case also comes with 3 velcro dividers, but it would have been nice to have more than three, with some half-sized or corner pockets. I have it so each light has it's own tight spot, but since i don't have more dividers, everything else just gets thrown into the same large section. (See attached photo for clarification.)
