The Mecalight S500 BC features bi-colour adjustments and a high colour rendering index CRI ≥96. The S500 BC can illuminate perfectly different lighting situations and provides realistic colour matching. Easy push buttons allow the photographer or videographer to control the power and colour temperature of the LEDs easily and read them accurately on the high-contrast OLED display.

The Mecalight S500 BC can be mounted directly on a tripod or on the hotshoe of a camera with the included hotshoe adaptor. It also comes with a soft white diffuser, which is easily mounted on the light with a silicone band. The diffuser mount includes a spacer that allows the light to get noticeably softer with reduced shadows.

The internal Lithium battery will run for one hour at full power and up to 24 hours at low power. The battery is charged via micro USB port (cable included) from your computer, wall charger or battery bank. The S500 BC can also be used while the charger is plugged in.
