The Genaray LED-5700T 240 LED Variable-Color On-Camera Light is compact and very lightweight and yet sturdy. It produces a brightness of 1100 lux at 3 ft distance, and its adjustable features provide for efficient and broad use.

Color temperature is variable from 3200K to 5400K, allowing for application in different indoor and outdoor light conditions; and brightness is dimmable from 100% to 10%. Both adjust by dials on the rear, and an On/Off switch lets you leave these dials in their set positions when you want to power the light down.

The light accepts Sony NP-F, NP-FP, NP-FV and NP-FH series batteries by default, and it comes with adapters for Panasonic CGR-D batteries and for six AA batteries. Batteries are sold separately. A battery test feature will let you check the remaining power of your batteries at the press of a button and five levels of indicator lights.

Also included are a slide-in diffuser, a slide-in magenta filter, and a ball head for mounting the light on a camera. The diffuser will soften your light output and reduce contrast between different parts of a subject, and the magenta filter will tint the light output. The ball head panoramically swivels 360° and tilts 180°, and it features a shoe mount that comes off to reveal a 1/4"-20 thread for attaching and adjusting the light on various stands. The light natively has one 1/4"-20 thread on the bottom.

          Comments about Genaray LED-5700T 240 LED Variable-Color On-Camera Light:

          This was a step-up from my old Sony 10/20 light. It's nice that it takles the same L-series batteries. With this light, even my old NP-F330's lasted a full hour on full brightness with this light.The light it gives off is true color on both ends of the sprectrum. No greenish tint like you see with some cheapy LED's. As others have said, the markings could be easier to read, but I'm sure it will be second nature after awhile. Also, it could use a battery release button, as it's a bit of a effort to get the battery off. I'm adraid I'm going to break the plastic.

              This light is a great deal. The plastic body seems sturdy enough for the intended use, it has a nice quality light and decent throw for a smaller unit.

              I have two minor complaints: I wish that all of the embossed lettering on the unit (on/off), (3200k/5600k), etc was also painted white to help see it better in the dark. I added it with a silver sharpie but it is not as clean as if it were painted at the factory.

              The second is on the AA adapter, the locking clips are plastic and I am curious how long they will last.

              I used this for an event at a night time ceremony and was very pleased with the quality of the light.

                    I have had a many of lights, but the Genaray LED-5700T 240 LED Variable-Color On-Camera Light is by far the best I have ever had. What I like about it is the dials for brightness and warmth, also the fact that I can load six double A batteries for power, power, you bet, it is very bright!! Highly recommend it if you are a serious videographer!!

                      This is the best value in on camera lighting. The mount is one of the strongest you will find. You can dim and change the temp. Comes with a battery pack that you can put standard AA in if needed. Also has a charge meter! Works great! The only thing was it did not actually come with a battery.

                        For the money I have no complaints but know you get what you pay for. If you are going to use this item heavily go with one of the big names. If this is for medium to light use this is perfect. Good light production but not amazing and strong enough frame that you know it wont break right away but eventually. If you want to use this 5 to 10 minutes every shoot for a few tricks - its perfect.

                                    Comments about Genaray LED-5700T 240 LED Variable-Color On-Camera Light:

                                    I use this on-camera mainly. I also have an Alzo variable color light.
                                    Many similar lights have a jack for external battery. Genaray does not. The AA pack is good. There's no latch or lever to press for battery removal. It has a fairly firm release but it's unsettling to do it. Nothing in the manual about that. There's only a single 1/4-20 mount.
                                    I like the flat broad knobs for light control. I marked mine with a silver Sharpie so I can repeat my settings. The on/off switch is great. Your setting are not changed when you turn it off.
                                    Light beam shows bright in the middle with gradual falloff. I would not call it "even" over a scene -- hot in the middle. But that seems like par (hah!) for the course. I use the diffuser all the time. I'm considering adding a more diffuse diffuser.
                                    I ran it with a small Sony stock battery for over two hours at full brightness with color balance set in the middle. I'm happy with battery life.
                                    The unit is nicely packaged. I'd give it five stars if it had an external battery jack, battery release lever and second 1/4-20.

                                        I bought this light along with a Generay 3 light studio system recently (on sale at B&H). Best price per power rating I could find, was just hoping for quality when it arrived. The light is fantastic. Well built, sturdy, extremely bright across the color spectrum. I wanted to replace my flash for outdoor portrait sessions (for fill) and this does it perfectly. No more clients with 'flash syndrome' and I can control color temp and fill amount easily. First photo session with it was a huge success. I will be trying it with video soon.

                                          I got this light to attach to my DSLR rig for some outdoor concerts we are filming over the summer. Man is this thing awesome! It's got great output, dims smoothly across the full 0-100% range (useful when trying to be discrete or not blind audience members), and has great battery life. The ability to adjust the color temp. further increases this things usefulness (no gels needed!)

                                          Furthermore, it's turning out to be useful for more than just on camera. I slap an L bracket on it and hook it into the pop-up tent frame, makes for an extremely bright work light. Great for when we are striking the sound and video booth in the dark.
