Product Highlights
  • Daylight Balanced 5,600K
  • AC or DC Operation
  • 10 - 100% Dimming Control
  • Optional Remote Dimmer
  • Beam Pattern: 60° Flood
  • Includes 3/4 Stop Diffusion Sock
  • Multi-voltage Power Supply/Adapter

The SpectroLED-9 Light (100-240VAC/12VDC) by Genaray is built around a 10-100% dimming fixture with a 60° beam angle. 500 LEDs output an impressive brightness equivalent many times its nominal 35W rating.

In a field dominated by rectangular or square arrays Genaray has made the wise choice of making studio lights circular. Not only does the increased surface area have more wrap-around light characteristics but the shape renders pleasing, natural-looking catchlights in your subject's eyes. And if you're doing portraiture you can soften the SpectroLED-9's output while widening its native 60 degree coverage by slipping the included 3/4 stop diffusion sock over the reflector. Heat is never a concern since the cool-running SpectroLED-9 is barely warm to the touch. Another way to soften the quality of light is the umbrella socket that's built into the mount. You can use reflective or translucent umbrellas for bounce or shoot-through effects. The socket accepts 7 or 8 mm shafts and the mount has a 65 degree tilting range for perfect placement.

Power is provided by the included multi-voltage Power Supply/Adapter. The inclusion of a cigarette lighter adapter cord also gives you the option of using 12V batteries for convenience or location shooting. You can run the SpectroLED-9 for approximately 300 minutes on an average fully charged battery. Not only are you saving money every time you use the SpectroLED-9 due to its low current draw, but with a 50,000 hour lamp life the SpectroLED-9 is virtually maintenance-free.

Note: runtime is approximate depending on battery selected

AC or DC Operation
The SpectroLED-9 comes with a 100-240VAC power source but if you need to shoot in out of the way locations you'll find its DC (battery) capability handy. A cigarette lighter adapter cord is included. Just add your choice of optional 12V battery.
Umbrella Mount
The SpectroLED-9's stand mount has an umbrella socket built into it giving you additional creative options.
Optional Remote Dimming
Squeezing the SpectroLED-9 into tight spaces is no problem. The optional Remote Dimmer gives you the same 10-100% dimming options that you have on the light's control panel but with a 12.8' cable. Operate 1 or several remote equipped SpectroLEDs from remote or central locations. It's also great for controlling a light that's mounted overhead.

    This is part of a Genaray/Impact LED light kit that will surprise you with the quality and amount of light it generates! It did me and my videographer. I needed lights for training videos that I produce for retailers who sell my company's products. I have a very small space in the corner of a warehouse where I must shoot these videos. I've always had the videographer I hire bring his lights, but they are heavy duty, high wattage and -- while they easily lit the set -- they generate lots of heat and sometimes trip breakers. This LED kit generates no heat, uses much much less power and is lighter weight. The dimmers are a big help. No, I couldn't use this kit to light an entire studio, but shooting from a few feet away, in an area confined to the width of a 9' roll of seamless, they work great. The videographer thought he'd have to supplement with one or two of his big lights, but he didn't.

    Reasonable light, however, the dimmer ceased functioning within 3 months. The light still works and is adequately bright with a nice spread if you need something just flatly lit in the background. The dimmer is the real weak point as once it's broke it's fully on with no dialing down. Also the remote can't supersede the built in dimmer so it is also worthless. The Car adapter is nice.

      Comments about Genaray SpectroLED-9 Light (100-240VAC/12VDC):

      I bought this Genaray LED lighting system to use it in my portable PhotoBooth and also to use as a continuous lighting source for photography. I had originally bought a fluorescent lighting kit and retuned it right away because fluorescent lights get incredibly hot instantly, it was an extreme disadvantage. Genaray has incredible reviews and it's no wonder, this lighting system is incredible, it's nicely built and doesn't weigh as much as other systems. I used this lighting system for a wedding to light up an extremely dark room, this lighting system compensated for the lack of light in the room, i still ended up using my speedlight's but my pictures wouldn't have looked as amazing as they do without this LED lighting system.

      I also have this system inside my Photo Booth shell case, the pictures it helps produce come out sharp and beautiful because of the cool lighting it casts. I am looking forward to purchasing a few more of these in the near future to continue to use for indoor photography.

            This stand is good for lights and such but I'm not sure about how long it'll last with a light on a boom type thing. I have a 9 inch genaray that came with a little thing for an accent light and this stand kind of bends when it's on. For that reason I'm gonna give it 4 stars. Otherwise it seems to be a great stand.

                  I can't really see any downsides to this light if you need solid continuous light and don't need barn doors to control the light. I use it for video interviews and have not been dissapointed. I really enjoy the dimmer feature as I rarely will need to use it at 100%. Great light.

                  This is part of a Genaray/Impact LED light kit that will surprise you with the quality and amount of light it generates! It did me and my videographer.

                      I shoot a lot of people in confined spaces around scientific apparatus where it's hard to get in and adjust the lighting to get a gradient across a face or reduce a highlight on something shiny. This light WITH the remote dimmer knob does the job every time.

                      Could also make a nice controllable fill light for portraits.

                        I bought two of these LED lights to replace my bulky softboxes and am so happy I did. I use these two with a Porta-Trace Light Box and am getting exceptional quality pictures. I like that these don't throw off any heat so I can leave them on while photographing several products (softboxes had 300w bulbs which threw off so much heat I had to constantly turn off and on). These lights are so light I can easily lift and hold in different positions while photographing products.The dimmer is a nice treat as I can focus more light from one side by dimming the other.If I had a larger budget I would have liked to get the larger version of these lights since they have a dimmer and I can always turn down if they're too bright. If I add anymore lights I'll go with the larger version.Construction quality is very good. Well designed for easy holding, switch location is designed well as I can turn on and off without looking for it. Overall very sturdy and well designed.I was surprised at how effective the Diffusion Sock worked. Although the light is pretty even without the sock, adding the sock improved the diffusion. Overall, very good diffusion with the sock.

                          This was the cheapest continuous/LED light source I could find. I use it for some tricky tabletop photography, in which a computer, two LCD screens, and a web cam are used in conjunction with my DSLR. Works great. Seems a bit overpriced, though.

                          We use the lights for close up interviews in varying locations. They function pretty much as expected. Lightweight, adjustable lighting. Easy to set up.

                              Ordered 3 of these lights for a small tabletop studio setup. One of them appeared to be already used - it was clearly unpacked and repacked, parts were missing.

                              B&H was good about sending out replacements for the missing parts.

                              That being said, within a couple of weeks one of the lamps died altogether. Not sure if it's the one that had the initial issues or not.

                              Other than these problems, the lights are nice, easy to work with.

                              This is a solid choice for budget-conscious daylight balanced lighting. It works like a big broad source, throwing light in an almost 180º pattern. If spill isn't a concern, and you're looking for some low power draw sources with minimal expense, it's a nice option.

                              With a sensitive enough camera, it can even be used as a soft key, although I would probably typically opt for the bigger brother version of this same light instead, and reserve this for back/kicker and fill jobs. I also use them for lighting chroma screens, since they throw such an even beam.

                              Positive notes: good CRI, built-in dimming, environmentally friendly, lightweight, inexpensive, no lamps to replace, low power draw, even intensity values, very low running temperature (you can Hollywood this light, no problem), long cable from power supply, round shape aesthetically pleasing.

                              Negative notes: cheap plastic mount, odd shape makes crating and carrying somewhat difficult, diffusion material is odd and difficult to apply, no spill control whatsoever.

                                Lots of light, lightweight for easy carry. Great for close indoor shoots. I also like the included soft-wrap. Great price/performance ratio. Note that the batteries are not included; they are an optional accessory (would have been 5 stars if they were included).

                                  These lights are compact, cool (thermally, but perhaps in other ways as well...), and very cost-effective. Output is highly adjustable. Both the transformer wires and the power cords are very long. The only drawback is that the color temperature is daylight, so, like me, you may need to apply a filter in some applications. Overall, though, these are great!

                                      Use it as a back light, the dimmer is very responsive. Can be used as main light also, depending on situation. Light is quite bright and includes a diffuser sock. It seems well built and made from good materials. Connectors and knobs are professional grade.
                                      Because it has no color temperature adjustment and no barn doors (hard to do on a circular shape), I give it only 4 stars
