Dracast S-Series Plus Daylight LED500 Panel with V-Mount Battery Plate

Featuring a slim and lightweight design, the S-Series Plus Daylight LED500 Panel with V-Mount Battery Plate 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.

The panel maintains a CRI of 96 indicating a precise rendering of color. The panel is 100-0% dimmable with negligible color shift.

Only used it couple time since receiving, but everything worked great. My shooting usually takes place in smaller spaces to it's nice to have a 3 light kit that fits into a case about 1/2 the size. The controls are straight forward and simple to use.

Using 2 LED500 For Outdoor Fill-in lights

An update to my previous review post showing how I use a pair of Draycast LED500 light panels for outdoor fill-in work.

Long-term B&H customer, first time reviewer. These lights are too good to pass up. I have three of these Dracasts that Ive picked up on special and theyre just great. Smooth dimmer and good output for the size. No green or pink tint and the build quality is solid. Hope this review is helpful!

Portable and powerful for the price

I bought three of these (two DL one dual temp) and plan to get a couple more daylight balanced. I actually think they are an unsung bargain and prefer them over the Aputure Tri-8 in terms of construction and value for money. They put out about 5000 lux/3ft compared to Aputure's 6000 lux/3ft (= 24000 lux/0.5m). This is excellent value for under $200. In addition, they are all metal construction with a proper 5/8" metal mounting yolk that the Aputure lacks. Mine also had barn doors included. I put two of these together (10000 lux total output and still $1000 below the Aputure) on a double-headed light stand for daylight fill at 3-4 feet for outdoor interviews. Yes, it works, which why I plan to get a second pair. They are also very light and portable. I love the option of the low-cost NP-F batteries. Two NP-F550 give me around two hours at full power. No issues of any kind so far - they seem a quality product. Highly recommended if portability and decent quality is a priority.

low output, power supply failed...twice

I have a Dracast LED 500 light that's OK (low output, but decent build quality), so I thought I'd add this light for use as a fill light. It does work for that...when its working. The power supply stopped working after a couple weeks (only used ONCE) but it was replaced by Dracast without much fuss. I moved on to better lights, so this sat on the shelf for a couple months until I tried it again recently, only to find that the replacement power supply also failed. BTW, in both failures, the light will operate using the V-mount battery and a 3rd party power supply that I have. So, I can use it with a 3rd party power supply, but suffice to say I can not recommend this light.

For the price they are charging these are nice little lights

I got 2 of these on a B&H Deal Zone special and decided to also buy the batteries (2 per light) and battery charger. I don't shoot video, only do photography and I got these for a quick and easy light source for simple product shots. They work great for that but I also tried them for some simple portraits. The lights can be a bit harsh if too close to the subject even though they have a milky plex material in front of the LED's. I got a couple of collapsible scrims that I can put in front of the lights that diffuse it more and it is quite nice. The nice things with these lights for head and shoulder portraits is you will get nice big irises in you subject's eyes which you won't get with flash. One other thing I got for each light was an adjustable mount that allows me to lean the light forward slightly. Otherwise it is hard to aim the light down of you have the barn doors on as they hit the support frame. Leaning the frame forward a bit makes it easier to aim down. The build over all is good, nice anodized aluminum and the plastic parts on the back for the power area seems of good quality

Great light for a reasonable price

As someone in the early stages of making videos its hard to acquire everything yu wish you had all at once.  So good functional items like this light are welcome.  Bright light with plenty of adjustment at a price that doesnt break the bank.

Do the lights in this kit with the barn doors support Dracast's gel CTO filters? Or do I also need to buy the filter frame?
Asked by: Eric
They are not compatible with the Dracast CTO inserts we have. You can use Rosco gel and tape it to the barndoors https://bhpho.to/2KR1yMz.

question

I bought these lights (daylight) with NP-F battery plates. Its seems that both battery slots need to have a battery installed to operate in battery mode. Is this the case with the updated lights?
Asked by: Matthew S.
Yes. You will need two NPF batteries to run the light. // Also, if there are any other technical or product related questions, feel free to contact us directly at any time at [email protected]

question

Does the receiver work with a remote.
Asked by: Logan B.
There is no remote control for these lights. You can control two or more lights by using one light as a master light, and slaving all of the other lights to that one light. In other words, you can control the lights remotely, but not with an actual remote control. // Also, if there are any other technical or product related questions, feel free to contact us directly at any time at [email protected]
