Dracast continues to expand its X series by introducing the V-mount M80B Bi-Color LED Monolight – crafted as a conveniently portable and versatile 80W point-source LED. The M80B provides high brightness, color accuracy, and different control and power options. The fixture's COB LED makes use of a bi-color CCT, while offering an array of creative lighting effects. Another benefit of this light is the ability to control one or multiple X series LEDs simultaneously.

An additional indication of portability is the inclusion of a nylon carry-bag. Store or take the light wherever you need it, whether you're shooting in the studio or on location.

Bi-Color Lighting
The M80B features color temperature that's variable from 2800 to 6500K allowing you to adjust your light to match the prevailing color balance or integrate it into setups with other lights.
Bright Output
Even though it has a compact form factor, the X series monolights deliver exceptional brightness. When equipped with its included reflector, the M80B's output is capable of reaching up to 16,144 lux at 3.3'.
Color Accuracy & Effects
The light is dimmable from 0-100% while maintaining CRI/TLCI scores of 96, indicating a high degree of accuracy in color reproduction for true-to-life shots. Not only color accurate, the light comes with different lighting effects that can be quickly selected onboard or using the DRX app.
Onboard & App Adjustments
Adjust settings with the local controls on the rear of the head with an LCD display or with the DRX app for iOS and Android. You can fully control light settings such as dimming, CCT, and lighting effects from up to 100' away.
Group Control
One of the light's enhancements is group control capability, whereby you can make color and dimming adjustments to a single master light and other lights in a group will follow suit. Basically, the M80B can work with other X series fixtures to expand your lighting possibilities. This includes the brand's wide range of X series LED panels and tube lights available separately in different models and sizes.
Multi-Voltage AC Operation
The included AC adapter operates on a voltage range from 90 to 240 VAC, so it can be used anywhere in the world.
V-Mount Battery Plate
The included V-mount battery plate is ideal for on-the-go lighting situations in which mains power is unavailable.
Widely Compatible
The durable aluminum housing is supported by a yoke with a standard 5/8" receiver for fast and easy mounting on separately available light stands. Finally, the light's Bowens accessory mount gives it access to an extensive variety of optional light modifiers.
Additional Benefits
  • Stylish blue and black housing
  • LED lifetime of up to 50,000 hours
  • Included soft diffusion filter for a soft and even wash of light
  • Works with an optional Fresnel lens to adjust the beam angle and intensity of output
  • Lightweight at just 2.2 lb with its reflector

how do you attach the battery to the light from the v-mount plate/battery? Is the attachment provided with the light kit?
Asked by: deborah
The Dracast X Series M80B Bi-Color LED Monolight (V-Mount, 2-Light Kit with Nylon Case) comes with a V-mount battery plate for each light. All that is needed then are the batteries. Here are some battery kit options: https://bhpho.to/3W8BcsN.
