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 padded soft 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 Soft Case is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good but ... The lights are great. Bright, easy color control. But some of the hardware is a bit shoddy. For instance, the mount that fits onto the light stand is fastened to the yoke with two machine screws that worked loose and fell out the first time the lights were used. I replaced and used Loctite on them. We'll see. If you want to use the barn doors and aim the light downward you need a swivel adapter for the light stand mount. Dracast 360-Degree Swivel Mount B&H # DRSM360 MFR # DR-SM-360 $24.50 each. Finally, one of the tightening knobs on the light stand was mis-threaded. B&H replaced but that never should have left the factory that way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and Affordable These little lights are compact and bright enough for my needs (video production, photoshoots). I travel for work so these lights are the perfect size and weight (I can pack them into my carry on). I bought one battery since I plan to shoot exteriors with no AC power available and this has made things even more convenient and mobile. I would definitely buy these again and recommend them to anyone who needs sufficiently powerful lights with the portability factor as a huge perk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good buy I'm pretty pleased with these lights.� Color quality is nice. Controls are easy.� Build quality is solid, though I did have to tighten a few screws that were loose on the mount. The side barn doors can't be opened more than 90-degrees if you're angling the light down at all.� I'd suggest using or investing in a swivel mount to fix that.� Soft case is handy.� Enough room to throw in an extension cord and some other accessories.�� The stands are a bit flimsy, but about the same degree as any included light kit stand.� I'm glad to have them as a backup.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as described This kit does not include the 3 dls spring cushioned light stands as the description states. Tried to get this taken care of through customer service, worst ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an amazing bang for your buck This was my 1st set of lights I've owned and they do such a great job. Whether I am shooting a formal interview or lighting a scene for a music video these lights do the job. My budget for lights wasn't too high, so the quality I get from these for the price they're listed as is incomparable. the stand are metal, not plastic. very sound. If you are looking for a solid first set of lights I suggest looking into these.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I guess you get what you pay for The lights themselves seem great. Bicolor, batter and direct power. Came with both Vmount and BP mount battery plates. But one of the brackets to screw the light to the tripod head came stripped. And one of the tripods was obviously used with scrapes and scuffs and doesn't even match the other tripods. It wasn't packed in plastic like the other tripods. I'm beginning to think that I got a returned item that they just shipped right back out the door. Not impressed with Dracast doing this and/or B&H.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall: Impressed I use these lights to film YouTube videos, Coding Tutorials, and my Training Courses for my online business. PROS: - Lights are durable, and built of quality material - They look slick - Produce a ton of light - User experience and settings are great - Barn doors are a nice bonus - Comes with individual cases for the lights, the stands, plus there's a semi-hard large case to store everything CONS: - The stands, like the other reviews say, are pretty lightweight. I wouldn't let my kids or pets near the stands while they're extended -- they'd for sure fall over if they were bumped. They work, but could be much sturdier! - If not using the batteries, the cords can be a little cumbersome, but not a big deal. Just keep your cords away from your feet so you don't trip and knock the light over. - On one of my lights, the tightening device seemed to be faulty, as it wouldn't properly tighten the light to the stand, so I have to use an Allen Key to tighten it (see image on the right of the protruding screw where an Allen Key can be inserted vs. the image on the left with the proper functioning screw). - On of my stands, the nib at the top that the light clamps down onto was slightly crooked (as if it were not properly screwed on the threads), so one of my lights sits a degree or two crooked, but it still works. Overall, I'm impressed at the quality and results, and I'm happy about my purchase!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid Lights, Weak Stand These lights made by Dracast have got to be some of the best value lights on the market. I was able to immediatley�increase both the quality and mobility of my video work. The bi-color means less output for each color individually, but I didnt�see this bothering me much in terms of color quality. What I did find a major let down was the quality of the stands. I bought this kit on black friday for the value, but easily should have bought just the lights.� The stands are light, not sturdy, super loose, rickety and noisy even after every�nut is tightened. They do not give me confidence in slightly windy situations and usually have a PA stand near them in case. Not sure if there are other compatible stands but do not go with these if you worry about keeping your investment safe. Since this was a kit, I would give the lights, cases and everything else but the stands a 4/5 but the stands themselves get a 1/5 stars bringing the overall rating to a 3/5.
