The LED Light Stick LC500 from Godox looks like a light saber or wand and its “magic” is its versatility and sheer pleasure of use. The Light Stick is 22″ long with a diameter of 2″ and its 516 LEDs have a color temperature of 5600K or 3300K to meet ambient conditions, match other fixtures, or just for creative effects. Light intensity is variable too, from 10 to 100% to meet your subject’s illumination requirements. While its output is omni-directional, it can be shaped and directed by the included barndoors.
The Light Stick’s handle makes it a shoe-in for hand-holding and use as a hairlight, side light, or main light for selective lighting and distinctive portraiture. Additionally, the female threads on the base of the handle allow stand-mounting and hands-free use. A wireless remote control with 16 channels and 6 groups is provided to make adjustments at a distance. The Light Stick has a built-in Li-ion battery that gets two hours of run time on a 2.5-hour charge. A padded carry case is furnished for storage and transport.
