Dracast LED500 Plus overview

  • 1Description

Dracast has put together this S-Series LED500 Plus Bi-Color LED 3-Light Kit with NP-F Battery Plates to offer image makers a 3-point light solution for the studio or the road. The kit comes with 3 S-Series LED500 Plus Bi-Color panels with 4-way barndoors. Each light comes with a diffuser, a multi-voltage AC adapter, light stand, an NP-F battery plate, and an individual soft case. A soft padded case is also provided for storage and transport.

  • S-Series Plus Bi-Color LED500 Panel with NP-F Battery Plates

    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 Plus reviews

S-Series LED500 Plus Bi-Color LED 3-Light Kit with NP-F Battery Plates is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flexible and functional set This set of lights exceeded my expectations, in part because of the intangible design elements. The stands fold up really small, the lights are compact and powerful. The kit as a whole is pretty heavy, but each light has its own protective case, so you can take them as singles, or two in the larger case, or all 3. They require two batteries NP-F to function in that mode, but we ran a test with our larger Sony batteries and had to give up after 5 hours of continuous running. We were expecting 30 min! For travel and for fast-moving smaller shoots, these look like they will be a great addition to our gear package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive value Only had these for about a week. Impressive little kit. I really like the stands, which are short folded up, but still go way above head level. The adjustable legs are great for uneven ground. It would be nice if they could dim down past 10% level, but at this price and good light color quality I'm not complaining. The preset WB settings in addition to the variable knobs is a nice addition. I'm worried that I might have trouble with the ac cable on the power supplies, that has failed me on other dracasts, and it's not the common three pin connector you find on most video gear, so you have ot go online to order a replacement, you're not likely to have one laying around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better Now that I have this set, I want to correct three minor complaints that I saw in video reviews. The first complaint was that the inner barn door was difficult to pry away from the diffusion filter without using a screwdriver because it was too close. Dracast has apparently corrected that - there's plenty enough gap to easy pull it back with your finger. A second complaint was that the diffusion filter would slide out if you needed to mount the light sideways. There are now tabs on both sides that can be pulled up to stop that from happening. A third complaint was that the lower barn door made it impossible to tilt the light panel downward, like you might need to do in order to light a table-top. But that can be remedied by relocating the tightening knobs on each side to a second pair of threaded holes. In that position, the panel tilts easily from straight down to straight up. The panel doesn't fit in its cloth case unless it is in the original position, so you may need to switch back and forth. Still, it's not much hassle if you need this feature. My own complaint is that there is user manual. Configuring the rear panels to set up the three lights in master/slave mode was not intuitive to me. However, I got excellent support by phone, and got it figured out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for travel, solid lights! Only draw back is that the barn doors have to be added each time you unpack or travel with screws. They supplied extra screws but it's really inconvenient, and they do NOT fold into themselves closed for transit. Designers overlooked this aspect of the barn doors.
