Product Information

PLEASE NOTE: This video is not full a representation of what is included in this listing as some items are used for demonstration purposes only. Please see the “Specifications” tab for information on what this listing includes.

Now made from high-grade scratch-resistant aluminium alloy, the PIXAPRO LECO500B II is everything that you loved about the original LECO500 Balanced LED panel, but in a smaller and better package. The LECO500B II still produces beautifully soft and even lighting, which is great for shooting video as well as for stills photography, but now in an even more compact and portable smaller 242mm x 191mm x 42mm package. 

The PIXAPRO LECO500B II LED panel, now features 600 Bi-Colour LED, which enables you to adjust the colour temperature between 5600K (Daylight Balanced) and 3200K (Tungsten Balanced). It also has a high CRI rating of >96, for impeccable colour accuracy and reproduction. The PIXAPRO LECO500B II is also dimmable between 100-10% for maximum flexibility. 

LED lights can last up to ten times longer than CFL lights and many time longer than Tungsten lights. LED lights are also more energy efficient using a fraction of the energy consumed by fluorescent or incandescent lights. LED lights also run cooler as they convert around 90 percent of the energy consumed into light as opposed to tungsten lights where the majority of the energy is converted into heat. LEDs can last for up to 50,000 hours which is 5-10 times longer than CFL bulbs, and many time longer than tungsten bulbs. 

The LECO500 II unit features 2x Sony NP-F series battery plates which enables it to be used with 2x Sony NP-F770 or NP-F970 Series Lithium batteries (sold separately) enabling you to work untethered which gives you a lot more freedom. You can also use these LED panels with mains power using the supplied AC adapter. 

This LED panel can be mounted onto any light stand, boom or Hi-Glide system with a standard 5/8” spigot via its U-Shaped yoke bracket which allows you to tilt your light on a 360° axis. It also comes with a set of slide-in filters allowing you to shoot in a multitude of lighting environments. 

The Leco500 II also comes with a wireless remote control, which allows you to adjust the brightness of the unit remotely.

Reviews for PIXAPRO® LECO500B II LED Bi-Colour LED Panel (Improved Colour)

(5)   By: John Milbank | 2 April, 2018

Really impressed with quality and performance

I actually bought the bi-colour lights by mistake – a mixup at the show meant I wanted the single-colour, but didn't realise I'd been given the bi-colour until I plugged them in at home.
The disadvantage is of course that the unit never drives all 500 LEDs at full power – when both are on, they both reduce their output. This is good if you want to keep the same exposure while adjusting the colour temperature, bad if outright power is more important. That's why I wanted the single colour – maximum output.
However, while they're not as bright as I'd hoped, they've proven excellent for the following reasons:
• They're powerful enough to match indoor background light, and still shoot at a very low ISO for a piece to camera.
• The barn doors are no use for masking light as you get steps in the edges, but they are handy for holding some diffusion material, which I did in the example video below. Having said that, I hope to buy the soft-boxes when I can afford them.
• Having bi-colour means that I can match the light in the background – with the single colour I'd be stuck with mismatched colour, unless I started using gels.
• The build quality is excellent.
• Using the PixaPro NP-F750 batteries (you do need two for each lamp), they last several hours, and seem well regulated.
• I thought the remote control would be a gimmick but it's brilliant! It makes setting the intensity and colour while shooting yourself really, really easy.
• They're reasonably compact, but not too small.
• The power supply has a really good, long cable.
• It's possible to set the temperature you want using the display on the back.
• The remote can control each lamp individually, or at the same time if you set them all to the same channel.
I shot the interior piece to camera of the attached video using a pair of these lights, with batteries, on the PixaPro stands, with some cheap diffusion material draped over the barn doors: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5wT9Lv9OMM&t=4s
Overall I'm really, really impressed and will be buying more from PixaPro in the future...

Questions & Answers


This light will only work when used with two of the NP-F970 or 750 L series batteries, this will not work when using just the one battery.


The LECO500B MKII Bi-Colour will have two separate modes that will allow you to individually adjust either the brightness or colour temperature, or full power mode which will set the lights at a constant 4400K allowing you to then adjust the brightness of the both LED's at the same time.

To put the panel in full power mode you will need to press the Adjustment knob in twice, this will then show FL on the display alongside the number which will be the power. To escape out of this mode you will need to press the Adjustment knob in twice again, which should then allow you to adjust these both separately.
