Dracast LED500 overview

  • 1Description

Featuring a slim and lightweight design, the S-Series Plus Bi-Color LED500 Panel with NP-F Battery Plates 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. One of the light's enhancements is Multi-Light Control Capability whereby you can make color and dimming adjustments to a single master light and other lights in a group will follow suit. The panel also has both color and light intensity presets to make it easy to return to previously used settings. The low electrical draw of just 29W means a timely return on your investment.

The durable aluminum frame is supported by a sturdy, 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 or by optional NP-F batteries. A carry case is included.

    Dracast LED500 reviews

    S-Series Plus Bi-Color LED500 Panel with NP-F Battery Plates is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hey guys.... you're missing the socket! Recent reviews of this light complain of not being able to tilt down. Well I just can't stand to read about this complaint anymore! It's because the users have left the light in it's "factory default" mounting location. Notice there is another set of mounting sockets in the light's frame. Remove the thumb screws and re-install using this second mounting location. Your problem is solved! Look closely at the image of the light in the B&H product description. The yoke is mounted in this second set of screw sockets just where you need it. We purchased several of these (500 & 1000) new generation S-Series lights last November. After going to NAB, researching LED field lighting and renting many brands of lights over the years... I must say I'm very happy with our purchase of the DRACAST S-Series lights. I've been in this amazing business of location video production for almost 40yrs and wish I had been able to use these lights sooner!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent but problematic Pros It's a decent light. Useful because so portable and does an adequate job. I love the fact it is such an affordable bi-color and it has been incredibly versatile. Cons I bought 2 of these and with each one, the power supply broke within 2 years. I bought an extended warranty for one of them so was refunded but when I contacted Dracast, they only have a 1 year warranty. A company should stand by their product and cover the flaw. Instead, they offered me a $50 replacement but I decided to buy a 3rd party power supply because I would just guess the replacement would be faulty also.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It makes a good hair light on a fast lens... Pros: I think it it build pretty well. I don't think I have a problem with that. I use Sony np-f batteries already so its nice to have a light with that option. I like the bi-color aspect which makes it versatile and simple to use.� The power chord is nice and long. The brick is about 10 feet so it shouldn't float if you put the light high unless its more than 10 feet. Cons: The yoke isn't big enough for the light to swivel to point down. The barn doors hit it so it can't really fit that way.� The barn doors don't actually do a whole lot. Barn doors are created for spot lights and fresnels that have a smaller point light source. When you have an area light The light spills everywhere. The doors would need to be twice (or more) as long to function like traditional barn doors. And as the title says it is good for a hair light or a fast lens. It isn't that bright in my opinion. Although I did get it on a holiday Dealzone for $110 so for that price I would buy it again. I would like to see what its bigger brothers can do if they go on a great deal maybe I'll get another in the future. (or of Dracast wants to me review them ;) Hope that helps.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, excellent controls for great light variability I have two of the lights and find them easy to use and am delighted with the white balance and brightness controls. The lights come with an excellent, heavy duty carrying case. I have used them for portrait and art photography and am delighted with both applications.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impossible to tilt down Lights are compact, light and very useful for outdoor. But, when u want to change direction of lights tilt down the head, the barn-doors touched the handle. therefore, you have a limited angle for tilting! lastly if you use the light without barn-door for� more tilt, Lights handles doing a shadow on floor. in my opinion, it's have to need be developing

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and beautiful Gotta say this is probably the most beautiful light I've ever purchased. �Works beautifully, lightweight and compact. �Makes for a great backlight, the image doesn't show it but it comes with barn doors which certainly are a key point to ANY light used in video production.
