Dracast LED500 Plus Overview

Dracast Plus Series LED500 Daylight LED Light Panel

Expanding on their line of panels, the Plus Series LED500 Daylight LED Light Panel from Dracast adds a digital display for adjusting output as well as Cat 5 DMX input and output for linking and comes with both Gold mount and V-mount battery plates. The light features 512 LEDs with a high CRI of 95 for excellent color accuracy. Also, this model has a daylight-balanced color temperature of 5600K for matching with natural light and other fixtures.

The lights offer a spot beam angle of 45°, as well as dimming from 0-100%. Benefiting operation, it can run from either a DC source, such as a Gold mount or V-mount battery, or a universal 100-240 VAC adapter. The light is durable as well, with an aluminum chassis, frame, and mounting yoke, and it only consumes 30W of power. Additionally, it is lightweight at just 4 lb and measures 12 x 6 x 2" in size.

How many hours does it last?

How many hours does it last?
Asked by: roberto
The run time would depend on the watt/hour rating of the battery. For example, the use of the V-mount plate on the Dracast LED500 Plus Series Bi-Color LED Light along with one battery from the Dracast Dual Charger with Two 90Wh V-Mount Batteries, BH # DR90S2CK would give you a run time of roughly 3 hours at full output. https://bhpho.to/3xxGpy9

Is this great for reception wedding wherein you want to light up the reception (when dark) ?
Asked by: Dale
These LED are more designed for use in a interview. For use in a wedding it will highly be dependent on the camera settings and the size of the venue.

question

Will this light take a V mount battery?
Asked by: trey v.
Yes, but No... The construction of the entire V-mount base is of such ridiculously low quality plastic, this appears more toy-like than 'pro'. If you attempt to attach any reasonably sized/weighted V-lock batteries, the plate will simply rip right out of the second plastic base it is attached to. Imagine that, plastic on plastic. The build quality is so poor in fact, my answer would be no, do not attempt attaching anything to this light other than XLR.

question

Can I mount this Dracast LED500 Plus Series Bi-Color LED Light to the hot shoe of a Canon XF200 camcorder, with or without any additional mounting hardware, or does it have to be mounted/secured on a stand?
Asked by: Luciano M.
Unfortunately, this light is not recommended for on-camera use due to the weight. It is recommended for use on a light stand.

question

What softbox or diffusion plate is recommended for this unit?
