  • 2ikan IB508-v2 Bi-Color LED Light
  • 3ikan CP-STND Compact Light Stand (6.25')
  • 4ikan Ikan Compact Stand Bag (Black)

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 they fold flat across the panel to form a protective shell.

LED flickers, broken mount

By Dave
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2020-04-01

Not very impressed. Love that the intensity and color can be changed, but it appears to be cheaply made. One of the LED panels flickers. All three light stand mounts came apart so that the panel head falls off the mount. Very difficult to keep the panel mounted on the light stand, very flimsy.

Great Lights, Awful Fixtures

By Caelin

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.

Great for on the go!

Really convenient light kit for on the go shooting!

No problem has been insurmountable with these lights.

I started a new job a year ago, after working exclusively with 1x1 and 2x1 LED panels. I was skeptical about these half-x-1 panels, but they've gotten the job done every time. The first time I bought them, some of them had manufacturing defects. Ikan replaced them for free, twice! And this was after months of use. And not only that, the second set of replacement lights had new QC passed stickers on them, seeming to indicate that Ikan listened to my problems and fixed them permanent from the inside. Never had a defect since. As for luminosity, I've used 2 of these kits (6 lights total) to even light a small (8'x8') green screen for the past year. 1 light for each corner of the screen, a key and a fill for the subject (chest-up framing), and the results have been beautiful. I've taken a kit with me to remote jobs and filmed dozens of glamorous, triangular-lit talking-head shots. For my job, this kit is perfect.

Really Good Stuff - Easy to set up and use - sturdy mounts

Only issue - came with two carry bags, no instructions on assembly - one bag is very weird and not useful.

So I haven't used these lights too much since I received them, but I am very impressed. They are bright, clean, and very well constructed. The case that comes with them is really perfect for anyone who shoots in different locations, and the battery powered functionality is flawless.

Not very bright

This kit is nice, but the limited brightness of these lights require our team to have to use additional lights. Not very practical for our shoots.

Great. but the case is useless

By David

The lights themselves are fantastic. The case does not hold shape at all and the lights get damaged and the accessories sit n a puddle underneath the dividers. They need a hard case for them, then.  all recommend.

question

What is the wattage power at full power on individual unit?
Asked by: Edwin A.
Ikan rates these units in LUX rather than watts. At 100% power and 5600 K, the light puts out 2186 LUX at 3 feet from the subject.

question

I'm looking to replace my old 1000 watt tungsten lights. I use them to produce videos for doctors , physical therapists..typically a physical exam video with 2 or 3 people in an area probably 10ft x 10 ftWould these lights be comparable for this application?..
Asked by: Mike
Mike,Yes these are great lights for locations and espically locations that may have limited space and or power. They do a great job and have a good quality of light and the fact you can easliy balance 3200k to 5600k is fantastic. they will not give you the same amount of light output as your current 1k fixtures but get the job done in most shooting situations. I have used them a bunch for on location interviews and Doc style shooting.Shaun

When these lights are plugged into power, will they automatically turn back on? I'm looking for lights that when I turn on the switch they are plugged into, they will AUTOMATICALLY TURN ON without having to press a button on the light fixtures themselves. Also, does the fixture maintain it's last settings? Thank you!

I bought these but can't get the adapters to work on stands so they can be angled. The gold screw in top of adapter is 3/8 and doesn't fit in bottom of led panels

question

Does anyone have any experience using these lights in the studio or on location for STILL photography...not video? If so, can you tell me your opinion re light intensity and fall-off as the lights move farther from the subject. I admit that I can't really picture a lux or a footcandle so if you have examples of, say, 10 feet from your subject you're shooting at f5.6 at a shutter speed of x in a location with minimal ambient light? Thank you:)
Asked by: Sayre
I would like to answer the question but we need a bit more information. The IB508-v2 at 10 feet is 197Lux/18FC. We get a 6.3 EV when we convert from 197LUX. For more in depth answer, stop by our website and leave a message about this, I can connect you directly with our product manager over lights, who will be able to provide you with many more details and information! Hope to hear from you soon!

question

2 of the 3 cheap plastic adapters that allow the lights to tilt have broke. Where can I get replacements?
Asked by: Paul B.
If they are under warranty, and they broke due to premature wear and not from an accident, you can contact [email protected] for a warranty replacement of the mounts. Otherwise, as a replacement, you will want to LM-102 adapter: <a href= https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1244434-REG/ikan_lm_102_light_stand_adaptor_with.html target= _blank >https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1244434-REG/ikan_lm_102_light_stand_adaptor_with.html</a>
