Dracast LED500 overview

  • 1Description

This LED500 S-Series Bi-Color 3-Light Kit with V-Mount Battery Plates from Dracast offers image makers a capable 3-point light solution that can be used in the studio or on the road. The kit features three S-Series Bi-Color LED500 panels equipped with V-mount battery plates, each coming with a diffuser, a power adapter, and an individual soft case for each light. Complementing the panels are three 7.2' stands for support and a hard kit case that can safely transport all the included gear.

  • LED500 Silver Series Bi-Color LED Light with V-Mount Battery Plate

    Featuring a slimmer and lighter design at just 2.0 lb, the LED500 Silver Series Bi-Color LED Light from Dracast 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 100-0% with negligible color shift. 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 the included 100-240 VAC adapter in the studio, or by V-Mount batteries in the field. Four-way barndoors for contouring and control of the LED500's 45-degree beam angle are included. For protection during transport and storage, a carry case is included.

Dracast LED500 reviews

LED500 S-Series Bi-Color 3-Light Kit with V-Mount Battery Plates and Hard Case is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lights are great The lights are bright and totally meet the needs of my film studio. The diffusers fit nicely on the lights. Be careful you don't throw out the diffusers. They look like they are just plastic. I have two complaints. The light tripods are not very good. Two of them are already not working properly. I've only had the lights about a month. When I extended one of them the section just came out. On another one the bottom section will not extend fully. The power input on one light doesn't feel secure. I pushed it in, but didn't get the secure click with the other two lights. I will probably need to eventually get new tripods for the lights.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice lights, terrible packaging I ordered this item because it seems to have good value. Other reviewers had good things to say. The way they were shipped is another story. The hard case is super nice, with a pull out handle and wheels like a travel suitcase. No padding or foam on the inside. Everything was shipped on the inside of the hard case in black nylon zipper bags. The problem is with everything inside there is still extra space. There was no packing to take up the extra space so during shipping items were banging around and resulted in damage to 2 of the 3 lights. B&H was good on issuing a rma but that means at least 2 weeks with out lights. 1 week to ship back and another week to receive the replacements. Super inconvenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Lights and Fantastic company These lights are great, and the included hard shell case is also very nice. I was impressed with the quality of the latches. They also include carrying cases for the lights and the tripods. I used some of the packaging foam (from the lights) as inserts in the light cases to add an extra layer of protection. I also used some of the packaging foam blocks as spacers in the large case to prevent the lights and tripods from moving around while in transit. Dracast is a great company and their one year warranty top notch. I definitely plan on buying future products from this company and I would highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Value! I bought these on sale, and had to wait a bit because they were back ordered. I admit, I was a bit skeptical about what I would really get. The deal just seemed too good to be true. It wasn't! I have used the kit a number of times now and it has performed flawlessly. The included hard case has extra room and I've added an additional stand, a small on-camera light, gels, C-47s, a foldable reflector, and an extra stand. The quality of the light is great....no green tint that can plague lower quality LED lights. This is not a kit to light a large set, especially when the diffusers are in place. It does a perfect job lighting a scene for a talking head, or heads (which is exactly what I bought it for). The light is soft enough with the diffusers that I don't feel a need to purchase any soft boxes for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Deal On A Great Lighting Kit We do commercial photography and corporate video production. I'm familiar with Dracast because of renting Dracast lights locally. When I saw this deal on B&H, I knew it was time to purchase some Dracast (own another brand already) lights rather than rent. Our team loves this light set. The case is so big that it has room for the other brand of lights that we own. Honestly, a second setup of these Dracast lights would likely fit in the case. The stands are compact and work well. Personally, I like stands a little more sturdy, but I love that these stands fit in the case and can remain with the lights. Each head has its own carrying case. These do not come with batteries. I'm very tempted to buy another set at this price point which is far less than I have seen at one of the B&H competitor websites. Oh, it's up to you, but I did get the 3 year Square Trade deal which was $108. We travel with these lights and I like the extra security of knowing that I might be able to get a replacement should something happen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these lights and what a deal! If you're looking for durability, high CRI rating and BI-Colour, this kit is for you. I used these lights while filming an EPK on a film set last week and I loved them so much I had to see how much these things were selling for.. I was presently surprised when I came across this awesome deal at B&H. Way too good to pass up. A couple things to note: The lights in the above picture shows that it has a black backing to the lights. Not the case. They have the Metallic blue colour just like the single lights you can purchase. They do also include a diffusion filter, which it does not state in the writeup. Light stands and case are excellent quality. Light stands have their own individual bags for each. Definitely you get a lot for your money here. Oh and the case is awesome. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Lights! BUT an open box.. really B&H?!? The lights are great I can't say I have a problem with them out the gate, the lighting case is robust and strong with additional room for other lighting gear, I was surprised by this. But, the glaring hole is that upon opening them you could clearly tell that they had been used and returned previously. There's a few surface scratches on the panels and the outer case, finger prints all over every light, there's something rattling around one of the panels and one of the tripods, minor snags in the tripod bags, one of the stands is pretty difficult to open from the base, some of the packing foam had already been ripped and the thank you card came smashed and dirt, ha. They arrived just a few days ahead of my next scheduled shoot, so as the lights were working I jumped right into using the lights, which so far so good, everything is operating correctly, but man do I feel cheated for sure. I just got off the phone with customer service and I have to send photos as evidence of the condition from their arrival and prove my case, before they will proceed with any discount, which I can understand, but WHY SEND OUT AN OPEN BOX IN THE FIRST PLACE AS NEW! It's extremely frustrating now I'm having to go about cleaning up their bad practices. For the record I've never had a problem with B&H before, but I'm sure feeling salty and unsure about my future purchases with them now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes I would buy this product again and would recommend it. I was really pleased with the product. We just did three interviews and the lights were more than efficient. I too was skeptical about the price, getting lights with bi color, stands, a case, individual bags, mat box on each light and v mount set up. What more could you ask for. This is a really good deal, if you are using the lights for documentaries, interviews, or smaller productions. They would also be great for a big production for fill lights or placement lights.
