    Dracast SB-500 reviews

    Softbox for LED 500 Pro / Studio / Plus Series is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little LED package Got two of these units on a B & H Daily Deal...at that price, it was a no-brainer! They have performed well so far...hopefully I'll still be saying that a year or two from now. Not too worried...basic instrument is metal, not plastic, so expecting it to hold up well. Probably would have been a 5-star review, however, the softbox that comes with these units is a little suspect. It was branded in the sale description as a Chimera...but I had to send one back almost immediately because it ripped in half the first time I used it. Have several Chimeras...never had one rip. B & H was helpful and replaced immediately.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from just use gel this is not a chimera brand as shown in the pic, it is not a silk front...it is simply gel with velcro around it . barndoors with a piece of gel and a couple a c47s..quicker and cheaper!! Do not like it at all.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dracast lights are great, this soft box not so much I received this soft box as part of a package with my Dracast lights, light stands, and barn doors. The price of the package was great, but the soft boxes are the only weak part of the system. Very cheaply made and low quality. If you need a soft box to use with these lights, my advice is to look elsewhere.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes This is the second LED I added for studio use. This softbox diffuses and softens. I highly recommend it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from A bit lacking. I love the design of most Dracast products, but this one disappointed me. Difficult to set up and take down (making it really only suitable for use in the studio, not great for in the field). It also didn't slide into the light very smoothly, doesn't have a locking mechanism to keep it in the light, and is a bit small so it doesn't soften the light as much as I'd hope.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised... Diffuser is easy to mangle a bit. Works like it's supposed to... you stick the pins of the softbox into the frame, and then attach the diffuser, and you're good to go.� The diffuser itself is a little fragile, or easy to be blemished.� The material doesn't flex particularly well, so you can't really fold it for storage.� I had originally hoped to store this in the bag that the light came in, but it's just a bit too hard to cram it all in there.� I'm just leaving it all assembled and in a box to store it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does exactly what it's supposed to do, and does it well! Many softboxes are not well made, and are falling all over the place, and need constant adjustment because the hardware is poorly designed. This baby's hardware was built with lots of thought, build like a rock, and diffuses light beautifully.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not great A little difficult to mount. Diffuser is not a silk so it's to much better than putting on tough frost with barn doors, except you won't loose any C-47's
