Create a 3-point lighting setup with ease using the daylight-balanced Interview Plus 3-Light Kit from Dracast . It packs together two LED500 Plus LED lights for getting high output in a small package along with a small LED200 on-camera LED light for more mobile setups. Besides the fixtures, the kit also includes two 90Wh V-mount Li-ion batteries and dual V-mount battery charger as well as four-way barndoors, filter frames, and filter sets for the LED500 panels. Additionally, two light stands and hard carrying case are included.
Expanding on their line of panels, the LED500 Plus Series Daylight LED Light from Dracast adds a digital display for adjusting output as well as Cat5 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 colour accuracy. Also, this model has a daylight-balanced colour temperature of 5,600K for matching with natural light and other fixtures.
The lights offer a spot beam angle of 45° as well as dimming from 0-100%. Benefitting operation, it can run off of 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 aluminium 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.
The LED200 Daylight On-Camera LED Light from Dracast is a 5600K on-camera LED designed for DV and DSLR photographers in need of a lightweight, portable, and continuous lighting source. The LED fixture mounts onto a shoe mount. It has a life expectancy of 50,000 hours, a CRI of over 95, a run-time of two to four hours, and an effective distance of 20'. The light comes with a nylon soft carry case.
The Dracast 90Wh 14.8V Li-Ion V-Mount Battery is a memory-effect-free battery for professional camera systems. It features built-in electronics to protect the battery during charging and use, charger is not included with the battery. The 5-LED battery system provides an indicator that shows you how much capacity the battery has left before it needs to be charged. It incorporates a D-tap power outlet, so you can power accessories directly, instead of through your camera's electronics. With an operating temperature range of -4 to 122° F, the battery will keep working even in deep cold and extreme heat.
The portable DR-CH2V Dual V-Mount Battery Charger from Dracast allows you to simultaneously charge two V-Mount batteries (or a single battery) from 90 to 240 VAC sources. It features a top handle for easy transport and built-in capacity management system to ensure fast charging. The charger will automatically shutdown once the batteries reach their full charge. Additionally, the charger can function as a portable AC to DC power adapter, taking the AC power input and outputting 15 VDC at 4A via a 4-pin XLR connector. The output is only active when no batteries are attached.
These Barndoors from Dracast are made for the LED500, and slide into a slot on the front of the LED light. They are used to control the spread of the light and prevent unwanted light spill and they feature a filter holder.
The Dracast Filter Frame for LED500 allows the use of Dracast or other brand diffusion, CTO, CTB or effects filters with the fixture. Constructed of lightweight aluminium, the frame drops into the fixture's accessory channel. It has a frame lock to prevent filter slippage.
The Dracast 5 Filter Set for LED500 Light contains rigid light modifiers that measure approximately 12 x 6" to match the fixture. Included in the kit are one each: 1/4, 1/2, and Full CTO filters to change the light's daylight balance to tungsten. A Half White Diffusion and an Opal Frost Diffusion Filter are also included to soften the light's output.
The DLS-805 Spring-Cushioned Light Stand from Dracast extends from 3' to 7.2' and has a load capacity of 13 lb. It folds down to 36" for transport, and weighs 4 lb. There is a 5/8" stud on top of the stand.
The stand is composed of lightweight aluminium and is anodised to cut down on reflections. It is spring-cushioned to keep lighting fixtures damage-free when lowering. Large knobs are easy to grip and allow for quick, smooth adjustments.
Military-Standard Waterproof Case 10 (Empty) from SKB is constructed of ultra high-strength polypropylene copolymer resin and sealed against dust and water. The hard outer shell is impact-resistant and features a rubber cushion grip handle, built-in wheels, and a pull handle for easy transport. The case is compatible with TSA latches so you can keep your equipment secure while still conforming to airport security requirements. An automatic ambient pressure equalisation valve self-adjusts based on your altitude. The case is resistant to UV, solvents, corrosion, and fungus, making it the best way to ensure maximum protection for your equipment at all times.
