Ideal for location shooters, Dracast Bi-Color 3-Light Interview Kit with Gold Mount Battery Plates and Stands is comprised of 2 LED500 Pro Bi-Color lights, each with a multi-voltage power adapter, soft case, an 8.7' light stand, Gold mount battery plate and battery. A dual charger is included for the batteries. An LED160A Bi-Color light is also included with a power supply, built-in Sony NP-F series battery plate, battery, charger and soft case. And, this kit has two filter frames and two filter packs for use with the LED500 lights.

The Bi-Color LED160A employs 160 LEDs, with a CRI rating of 95, providing 3200-5600K output with precise, accurate color rendering and a beam spread of 45 degrees. It features an aluminum chassis for strength and durability but weighs only 1/2 pound. A built-in dimmer controls light output from 0 to 100% without flicker at any frame rate. A separate knob controls the color temperature balance of the LEDs. The light runs on AC via an adapter or on NPF-type camera batteries that mount to its built-in battery plate.

At just 4.0 lb the LED500 Pro Bi-Color LED Light 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 0-100% with negligible color shift. The LED500 outputs the hot light equivalent of 500W but you won't have to be concerned about the talent's comfort - the panel runs barely warm to the touch. And 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 a 100-240 VAC adapter or by optional 12 VDC batteries.

Bi-Color 3-Light Interview Kit with Gold Mount Battery Plates is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend for the traveling interviewer I use this set up primarily for interviews for a blog I have. I appreciate that this product is easy to transport, since I now bring it to every interview I do. The kit is very easy to set up, which is fantastic as I usually have very little time or help before each interview starts. The LED light do not get too hot, even though the light emits amazing light, with perfect color accuracy that last the whole interview, typically 30-45 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable and perfect for taking on the go I started a Youtube channel about 5 years ago for the fun of it, only recording videos from my bedroom window via natural sunlight. This was a great affordable option until my channel started to grow and I needed to invest in high quality equipment that would produce great lighting for my videos. The biggest cons I saw on lighting systems were the constant flickering or dip in color, as well as the color temperature giving off a magenta tint, resulting in poor image quality. I knew if I invested in a kit that it had to have great color accuracy, making the lighting as close to natural sunlight as possible (to keep consistency with my previous videos). I knew this kit would be ideal for me due to the fact that I can easily transport it to and from location, set it up on my own and that it has a dimming control where I can control the intensity of the light for my videos. I am happy to report that all of the features that come with this interview kit have provided my film crew phenomenal lighting with no issues. High quality lighting for a budget friendly price. I will definitely be purchasing a back up kit for on the road only.
