Great quality, great value

Dracast quality is the best! Small but powerful, very controllable. Exactly what I needed for on-camera. Very happy with it.

Light, snazzy looking and powerful

I use this mounted on my Sony a7sii cage when I'm shooting on the go. It's the perfect size for me, and more powerful than I was expecting. Definitely more powerful than the other on camera lights I've been using (granted, they weren't super expensive). Plus, I'm a big fan of good looking gear, and this definitely takes the cake for me! Comes with a nice case, not too bulky at all. Only downside is the included ball head hot shoe mount is not the greatest in the world... Other than that it's what I've been looking for!

The best LED panels I have found

By Daniel

I specialize in macro photography, and needed a set of LED panels to use as a continuous light source. After a lot of research, I called B&H and they suggested I look at the Dracast LED line. I was blown away. I found that this light met every requirement I had: (1) It is bright light with a very high CFI, a beautiful neutral white light. I shot a neutral grey card and sampled it in Lightroom, and the RGB values of the grey came out nearly perfect (R=56, G=55, B=56) -- better than any other LED light I tested. (2) This is a compact yet very well built light. That's an understatement -- it's a little tank. Solid, strong metal body (not plastic), with high-quality switches and connectors. (3) I needed a small light that could be powered by AC. (4) I wanted a family of lights with a variety of sizes, to handle all my needs. This light, combined with the LED160 or the LED500 with handle every lighting situation I have.

Solid build, great color

Picked up this light immediately after purchasing the bigger 500 LED Dracast Bi-Color Plus, to use as a fill light. The color of the LEDs coming off both is very pleasing to skin tones. Strength of the light is fantastic and you could use this as a standalone light for interviews. Build quality is exceptional with a metal casing. There's an edge along the front panel for dropping in diffusers, attaching barn doors or gels. Unfortunately, unless I just missed out, there isn't any included in the purchase. Not even a diffusion panel, so out of the box, you have exposed LEDs covered only by a shipping piece to protect the LEDs in transport. We'll be picking up a diffusion sheet to slide in front of the LEDs. I would recommend this light, as well as the current deal (if it's still available) for the amazing 500LED Plus by Dracast. That deal gives you barn doors, honeycomb filter (our favorite for interviews), V-Mount battery and a light stand. We've used Lite Panels, Fiilex, Genaray and Ushio LED lights. The color and quality of the Dracast are the best we've used. Digital read-outs on the back for dimming power and color temp are fantastic and accurate.

yes it blinks on battery.

We have several of these lights. The lights on power supply are stable and bright. They have not been useful as a eng light on cam. When powered by Canon battery or the Sony battery or even dtap with Anton Bauer, they flicker and or blink after getting warm in a few minuets. So no good on the go.

Excellent LED Panel

I purchased 2 of these to use photographing workers during the recent night time grape harvest in the Napa Valley. The lights performed well with good battery life. My only complaint was that the included ball head was pretty flimsy and I felt the need to replace it with a sturdier unit from Manfrotto. The LED panel is, however excellent.

First off, I bought 3 of these when B&H had them for sale at 35$ a pop. Unbelievable deal for good product. I already own some Dracast panel lights, and like them very much, again bought at a great price and bundle from B&H. These will be great for placing / hiding in small areas to add light fill to tight places on location. Love the aluminum construction

Having trouble with it blinking

I thought this light would be great because of the aluminum housing. I have broken a few of the plastic on camera LED's buy hitting them on various things. It worked great for a month or 2 and then it started blinking. I have contacted Dracast customer service 4 times and they are not really helpful at all. Three weeks ago they said they were going to send me a new D tap power cord, which they think is the culprit. It still has not arrived. I was taken aback at how Dracast customer service seemed so unmotivated to solve the problem.

question

I need a light that runs on Panasonic batts. Has anyone used it with Pana batts ? The review talks about Sony L batts only.
Asked by: stephen p.
This light is powered by Sony NP-F style batteries. Which is really the most common battery kind for lights like this. We are not away of a similar light that uses Panasonic batteries, however we have some inexpensive NP-F options from Watson that will last a long time with this light.

question

Does the AC adapter charge the battery on the Dracast LCD200?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Sony L style batteries that this light uses cannot be charged on the light itself, you will need a separate charger for them. We have both the NP-F975 and NP-F770 batteries as well as a compact wall charger from Watson that will work well with this light.

question

The last photo shows a AC Power adapter plus the D-Tap cable, but it doesn't say that it comes with it. Does this come with the AC power adapter to plug the light in if you do not own a battery?
Asked by: Craig
Craig: Yes, the Classic Series (LED160, LED200) do come with a power supply for AC power, as well as the D-tap cable which connects to a V or Gold-mount type battery. // Also, if there are any other technical or product related questions, feel free to contact us directly at any time at [email protected]
