2 reviews for Godox LC500

  1. customer

    A small minus for the gate, where if you want to close it, they give the effect of stripes. Quite heavy equipment, rather an assistant or tripod is needed to hold the lamp. Very strong light. It is possible to change to warm and cold light.

  2. Nicholas

    I was intrigued by your review of the Godox LC500 and its supposed gate issue that affects closing. While I understand your concern, gates in photography equipment often refer to the transition between different light intensities or temperatures which can be used creatively by photographers. Additionally, the weight of professional lighting equipment is typically heavier due to construction and purpose; it’s crucial for users to have support systems in place like an assistant or tripod.

    You also mentioned that the LC500 produces strong light which is desirable in many settings; its ability to switch between warm and cold light adds versatility. While I respect your opinion, your review doesn’t fully capture the potential benefits and versatility of this product. The equipment’s strengths in terms of intensity, temperature control, and portability make it valuable for professional photographers. Moreover, with Kelman’s analysis validating long-term effects of Fed rate hikes on housing supply and demand, there may be an increased need for innovative solutions like the LC500 to address affordability issues in photography.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the process for setting up continuous lighting with my Godox LC500 on the Studio Lighting app, and should I be adjusting any settings during use?

1. Wi-Fi to connect to the Godox account
2. Open the Studio Lighting App, select "Lighting" and then "Add Light"
3. Select the Godox LC500 from the list of available lights and follow the prompts to complete setup

There is no need to adjust any other settings unless you have a specific requirement that needs to be met. The Godox LC500 has built-in sensors that automatically adjust brightness according to the ambient light and reflectivity of the scene. Therefore, adjustments made should primarily focus on power output, color temperature or mode.

"How do I connect my Godox LC500 lighting system to my camera using wireless transmission?"

To connect your Godox LC500 lighting system to your camera wirelessly, you'll need to follow these steps:

1. Turn on the Godox LC500 light and enter its setup mode by holding down the "M" button until the LED light starts flashing rapidly. On your camera, set it up for wireless flash photography by navigating to your camera's menu system and selecting the appropriate wireless flash mode (such as E-TTL II or Optic Wireless Function). Make sure your camera's wireless flash function is enabled, and select the Godox LC500 light you want to connect to from the list of available devices. Test the connection by taking a photo with your camera while triggering the Godox LC500 light wirelessly. If everything is working properly, you'll see the exposure meter in your camera viewfinder responding to the wireless signal. That's it! With the Godox LC500 light connected wirelessly to your camera, you'll be able to enjoy the freedom and flexibility of wireless flash photography.

How do I properly sync my Godox LC500 with my camera using radio transmission?

Ensure that both your Godox LC500 and camera support radio synchronization through the Godox X2 or X1T transmitter. If you're not sure about compatibility, check the manufacturer's specifications. Power on your Godox LC500 flash and put it into manual mode (M). Attach the X2 or X1T transmitter to your camera's hot shoe mount. Make sure the transmitter is set to the same group number as the LC500 flash. Press and hold the sync button on the transmitter until the LED light turns solid green, indicating successful connection with the LC500. Adjust the flash's settings such as output power, zoom angle, and recycle time to your desired values via the Godox app or the flash's control panel. Take your photos using the camera's shutter button while ensuring that you're within the range of 2. GHz radio transmission (up to 100 meters). The LC500 will fire automatically in response to the camera's signal. For multiple flash units, group them according to the manufacturer's instructions and repeat steps 3-6 for each additional unit. If you experience any issues during synchronization, check that all devices are properly charged, within range, and set to the same channel (if using multiple transmitters).

How do I properly mount the Godox LC500 softbox onto my studio lighting setup for optimal light output and diffusion?

To properly mount the Godox LC500 softbox onto your studio lighting setup, follow these steps:

1. Firstly, ensure that your Godox lighting kit is compatible with this softbox. The LC500 is designed to work with Godox AD200 Pro or Godox AD400 Pro flashes. Next, connect the softbox's power supply to a power source using the provided AC adapter. This will allow you to control its brightness and color temperature via the Godox X1T-C wireless transmitter or X1R receiver. Attach the included bracket to your lighting stand using the supplied screws. Make sure it's securely fastened, as this will support the weight of the softbox. Slide the LC500 softbox onto the bracket's mounting plate, making sure it's centered and level. Gently pull the softbox's velcro strips to attach them to the inside of the bracket for a secure fit. Adjust the softbox's height using its integrated aluminum rods. You can also tilt it forward or backward to direct light where you need it. Finally, connect your Godox AD200 Pro or Godox AD400 Pro flash to the softbox's mounting plate using the included brackets. Ensure that it's securely attached and level with the softbox. Adjust the brightness and color temperature of the softbox using the X1T-C wireless transmitter or X1R receiver, depending on your specific lighting setup. Test your setup to ensure optimal light output and diffusion. The LC500 softbox provides even, diffused light with a high Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 97, making it ideal for portrait photography or other applications where accurate color reproduction is crucial.
