Product Highlights

  • 1100 Lux Brightness @ 3 ft Distance
  • 10 - 100% Brightness Dimmer

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.

      I purchased this product because I wanted a convenient battery operated off camera portrait light. Works well on the hotsoe of my D7100, although I have used it only for still images. I especially like the convenience of using it to light a background even away from A/C. The 240 LED's give off a surprising amount of light, and it's convenient to dial up or down the intensity with a knob, making the metering easy if necessary. I also like the ability to move between daylight and tungsten with a knob, which can help in mixed lighting. The light seems acceptably well built.
      As for negatives, I compared this light to a similar product my friend received as a gift. In many ways they were similar ; light output metered about the same, both had dial control for output. Hers did not have dial control for color temp adjustments, but came with a filter instead. Her light can be found online for less than half the cost if this one.
      Overall, I'm pleased with the Genaray 5700-T.

        This light is good quality for the money. Shines bring, solidly built, & the attachment for the hot shoe very secure. There is one thing I should mention..... At first it didn't work! But after I looked a little more closely I could see that the contacts on the AA battery housing were coated in a very thin / fine film (over-spray) of black spray paint, must of happened during the manufacturing process. It came off with my fingernail but to get it all I had to use a razor blade to scrape the rest & made sure the entire contact was shiny silver again, now that it makes a good connection it works just fine. I still give it 5 Stars, maybe it was just mine but if this happens to you check the contacts.....jp

                Just getting started with the light. Electronics work great but yes, like other reviews said, the battery pack is problematic. Plastic and hard to access.

                        I was very fortunate to purchase this light and use it on a shoot in a Boston theater - the best compliment I received that day was, your light is too bright; I incorporated a warming filter to cut the brightness. I was about twenty-five feet from the stage. The client cut down the lights to create an effect, but made it difficult for the camera I used to see the kids production. I might also include this fact, this is a very durable and rugged piece of equipment, I dropped it three times and its still working to my satisfaction. I am impressed and my hat's off to Genaray for producing this piece of equipment...

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

                          I will try to come back and leave a review once I've used this item a few more times. I'm a wedding photographer and I shoot both digital and film. I got this light so that I can continue to shoot film during the low-lighted receptions. I've only used this item one time and have not gotten the results back yet. However, upon simply playing around with this light; It seems like it's fairly well made, though it is all plastic. I like that you can control the brightness and color temperature, but the degree of accurateness, I have no idea. One thing I don't like about it is the AA battery pack attachment. I use Eneloops for everything (they're great!) and so naturally I wanted to use the AA attachment. The holder for the AA batteries is extremely difficult to open. It is all contracted of plastic and you have to lift two tiny plastic tabs in order for the top to open. I don't have a TON of hand strength and the small plastic prongs were digging into my fingers making it painful to open. Plus, I almost broke a nail just trying to open the darn thing... Guys, don't laugh, girls, be warned. I don't think this light has a lot of "reach." The fall off seemed to be substantial so it will be interesting to see how this will work for a couple's first dance. I obviously don't want to have my assistant standing too close to the couple. So I'm hoping it will give just enough light to allow me a reasonable shutter speed. Again, I will try to come back and review this again once I have more practice with it. But I do like the size of it, it fits nicely into my Kelly Moore bags. I like that it's light weight. I do wish it had some sort of bar/handle/attachment so that it was easier to hand cary for off-camera lighting held by an assistant. It it a bit awkward to handle if you're just holding it. I sort of have to "palm it" like a basketball since there isn't anything to really hold onto.

                              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.

                                          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.

                                          Decided to add/replace on camera video light. Love this one as it has good light output and adjustable color temp as well as variable ligjt output.used at event for several hours on 6 double a batteries. Also able to use my sony camera batteries as well.beats carring around battery pack all night.

                                            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.

                                                        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.
