Product Highlights
  • Foundation Series On-Camera LED Light
  • 5600K Daylight Color Temperature
  • 640 Lux Brightness @ 3 ft Distance
  • 10 - 100% Flicker Free Brightness Dimmer

The Genaray LED-5300 120 LED Dimmable Compact On-Camera Light is 5600K daylight balanced and delivers a 640 lux brightness at 3 ft distance. The brightness is adjustable by a flicker-free dimmer that also powers the light on and off. A 4300K filter is included for warming the daylight balanced color, and a diffusion filter is included to soften the light output so that your subjects are lit more gently and with less contrast from area to area. The filters interchangeably slide in from the side and lock into place. A button on the bottom releases them.

The light runs on any Sony L-series type battery and on AC power. An NP-F550 L-series battery, a charger, and an AC adapter are included. The AC adapter connects to the light via a dummy battery.

A cold shoe is integrated for mounting to a camera, and inside the shoe is a 1/4" thread for attaching onto stands and rigs. The cold shoe also features a locking ring that tightens the connection to a camera. A thread adapter for mounting on Sony's proprietary AIS shoe mount is also included.

      I bought this light for my Canon T4i to replace the flash while taking pictures. I prefer steady light to flashes. I took this light out in the pitch black and was able to get great pictures. The light also works great on a tripod for all kinds of shadow effects. It also works really well for macro photography. The only downside is that the battery is not anchored in place very well. If it gets bumped the wrong way it falls out very easily.

      I bought this light for video use (as fill light for interviews/short films and for low light situations when shooting weddings/events) I like the size and weight of the unit, it's also bright enough(especially for the size). The case is comfortable to use and will protect all the things inside. I don't like basically two things: the dimmer doesn't work as good as it should (it's not smooth and the maximum brightness is achieved just about on 1/3th of the wheel move !) The second thing is the diffuser - it's almost useless...

            Comments about Genaray LED-5300 120 LED Dimmable Compact On-Camera Light:

            I bought this mostly for photographing very young children and infants. Both me and the child's mother didn't want an instantaneous flash to disturb the child or be harmful, G-d forbid.

            That said, the child still had to get used to the bright light, but did get used to it eventually.

            At first I tried the dimming feature to be less disturbing, but found the resulting photographs to be washed out, less contrast, and the color slightly off. Therefore I don't think the dimming feature is very useful.

            Before I bought it, I thought I would have preferred a light that used disposable AA batteries to make the light always ready, but now I'm happy with the rechargeable battery because it lasts 2.5 - 3 hours on a charge, and recharges in about 4 hours. Also, it's a very popular rechargeable battery, so equivalent batteries are available for a reasonable price, so I can always have a spare fully charged battery on hand. So, since the rechargeables are practical, they're more convenient and less expensive than AA batteries.

            I use this light in a professional capacity and it has been great so far. Much brighter than my co-worker's lights!! The only thing is when I got it I wasn't sure if it was fully charged or not. When you plug it in to the battery charger the light is solid red and will turn green when fully charged, but it doesn't say that anywhere in the manual.

                      These lights are great. The LED lights stay cool, are tougher than regular bulbs and throw a decent amount of light. The adjustable dimmer gives you better control to reduce shadows or hot spots quickly.

                        I was surprised at how compact this unit was. My main purpose was to use this on and off camera as a fill light. This weekend I shot a series of portraits, the LED was used on a tripod as fill and it worked perfectly.

                        When used on camera I can adjust the light obtain a correct look and meter reading for the shot I want. I am more that pleased with the LED-5300.

                          I bought this light about a month ago and have used it extensively since. It unit impressed me so much I bought one as a gift for a budding photographer

                          I often place it off camera on a lightweight tripod, usually as a side light, when taking still photos. I also mount it to a video camera when additional closeup light is needed.

                          Battery life is longer than expected; only once has it run out of power. That was after two very long sessions across a couple of days.

                          Both diffusing filters work well. The incandescent-balanced filter provides a nice warm glow while the clear diffuser disperses light while mimicking daylight.

                          The biggest downside I've encountered occurs when the unit is used on top of a D-SLR...the way the unit is usually pictured in catalogs. People often complain about the brightness when they must face the unit. The dimmer helps but the unit is still relatively bright.

                          Overall, I really like this unit and am impressed with the value it represents.

                          I got this with 6200-to model. When I tested at home compare both models, I just prefer 6200 model's magnet system, also dialing system. Its just my personal preference, I bet if I didn't compare having both together, I would keep it. It will work well.

                            I purchased this item for my younger sister. She absolutely loves it. I might have borrowed it from her a few times. The amount of light produced in this small package is fantastic. The light illuminates about 10-12 feet. I would recommend this to any camera enthusiast.

                            I will be using this light mostly for night time outdoor interviewing for youtube videos. It provides a spot large enough to light up a person, not much more. It is compact, well made, comes with battery, power supply, charger, diffusers and bag. A complete setup.

                                  I was disappointed by this light's 130 L.E.D. light output. I have a similar rectangular unit of only 96 L.E.D.'s but is much more powerful and it has a more even rectangular light pattern compared to this one's pronounced circular light pattern in contrast to it's square design. In my opinion it has only a limited use as a secondary light source to lighten up small shadow area's.

                                    I use this product with a Nex-7. I like the lite, it is especially useful for fill-in and then using the Anti-Motion Blur mode on the camera. It really helps reduce the noise caused from the high ISOs that are used in this mode. The light is very soft, not harsh like a flash. However, it is not a replacement for a flash since the light is not as intense. The size is great for carring around.

                                    I only gave it 4 stars since the "Sony" adapter that was included with it didn't work at all! I had to purchase the Vello HSA-CSC adapter to use it.

                                      On a still camera, in a low light situation, this is a handy accessory that can be used on or off camera.
