Dracast Halo 180 overview

  • 1Description

Although the first thing that catches your eye is the LED180 Halo Daylight Ring Light's unique form, Dracast delivers performance features to back it up its looks. While most light fixtures have some directionality allowing selective lighting, the Halo is omnidirectional, bathing your subject in soft, flattering, near shadowless light that is very kind to skin tones. Dracast employs 252 surface-mounted LEDs softened by a diffusion filter for output that's rated a solid 5600K, while maintaining a high CRI of 96, indicating an accurate rendering of color.

You can use the Halo as you would a traditional fixture - on a light stand placed to one side of your subject for wrap-around light and open shadows. It's when you place the camera lens into the center of the 19" ring that the Halo shows its true nature. You can use it combined with other harder light sources to create a soft fill light, and since the Halo dims from 0-100%, you won't have to jockey the fixture around the set. It's when it's used alone that its signature characteristics emerge - soft light on the face, head and shoulders with sharp shadows cast exactly behind the body. The circular catchlights reflected in your subject's eyes also have a striking effect, especially up close.

The LED180 Halo is ready for worldwide use thanks to the inclusion of a multi-voltage AC adapter. A hot shoe adapter, phone adapter, and a carry case are also included.

    Dracast Halo 180 reviews

    LED180 Halo Daylight Ring Light is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bright light but plastic I own 5 other Dracast lights and generally recommend them as they are well made and have durable metal housings. I purchased this light when on sale (LED 180 Daylight model). It arrived promptly and in good working condition. However, this is entirely made of relatively light plastic and if your intention is to take it on various locations with other equipment it will probably not last over the long haul. It comes with a lightweight nylon carrying bag which offers little real protection. Keep the shipping box for protection when moving out to locations. That said, it works, its bright, it's fairly large, it comes with both a white diffusion and a 3200k ring. The brightness is adjustable but on the low end mine cuts out at about 10%. Inside measurement of ring is 13.5 inches. Manual says it has 252 LED's, I counted 256 on mine. It draws 55W. I would recommend it if you are on a budget and don't intend to move it from location to location frequently. I don't believe this light will sustain a knock over or having something heavy land on it. In my sample photos the lights were on low, they are very bright at 100%.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, even light I bought the bi-color one as well (it was a deal of the day after i bought this one) and will be returning the bi-color one.� It was a significant difference in quality for some reason between the two...almost felt like different manufacturers!� This is the one you want though...looks and feels solid and the light produced is VERY bright and very even.� Super happy with it.� The picture below is on a setting of 20 brightness with 99 being the highest.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What I Needed Was looking for a high quality, reasonably priced (daylight) light for photographing small items (18" long) for Etsy.� This filled the bill perfectly.� Usually run at 50% power.� It's light weight.� Has long cord.� Leaves just enough shadows behind to simulate 3D.� Quite nice.� Good price.�� Very pleased.� Recommended
