The Genaray LED-6500T 209 LED Variable-Color On-Camera Light is a vertically stackable light with 209 LEDs that produce a 900 lux brightness at 3 ft distance. The color temperature output is variable from a cool 5600K to a warm 3200K by a smooth-tuning dial on the back. The dial rotates steplessly with a bit of resistance that encourages fine-tuning. A magnetic diffuser snaps onto the front to soften the light output and significantly reduce contrast between different areas of your subject. Brightness is adjustable flicker-free from 10 to 100% by another stepless dial on the back. Flickering can be picked up by a camera, so the ability to adjust brightness flicker-free will enable you to lower or increase it while you're capturing your scene. The light can be stacked up with other 6500T units via unique slide-on, dovetail-type tracks on the top and bottom.

You get several accessories -- an NP-F550 battery, an AC adapter for continuous power in an indoor setting, an AC/DC battery charger, a car charger, the above-mentioned snap-on diffuser, a ball head that swivels 360° and tilts 180°, and a carry case for keeping everything organized. Alternative to the included battery, you can attach any Sony L-series type battery up to the largest and longest lasting one. Like the AC adapter, the car charger can also be connected directly to the light to get continuous power without a battery. And, the ball head features a shoe mount that comes off to reveal a 1/4"-20 thread for mounting and adjusting the light on various stands. The 6500T has a densely solid build and is one of Genaray's best Professional Series lights.

      This light is pretty great. The plastic body feels solid which is a relief since it was the only thing about this piece that I was worried about. The mount is decent, but a bit shaky (I do like that its entirely metal though, I thought it was just going to be weak plastic). Battery life seems good and after asking around the community seems to last for at least 2 (maybe longer) hours on a medium output. As far as output goes its pretty great, I can do a good job with just two lights and the color temperature is a nice change from having to use diffusors. If you can though try and get the EDU discount, otherwise I feel like its just a bit too pricey. I've heard decent things about its younger brother the 144, but I think its worth it to spend on the extra light. I would recommend getting a drops and spills warranty with this, the plastics good, but if you drop it on something hard like concrete I think the risk of cracking would be a bit scary. The case it comes with has enough room so that nothings cramped and also has straps to hold things in place, but doesn't really offer much in the way of protection (Still really nice to have though). The dimmer and color control knobs are both very smooth and offer a respectable amount of control. All in all this is a great purchase that I think anybody would benefit using.

      This product is best for video and not for a DSLR
      I sent this product back to B+H for a refund. This product is simply not, if I had more information, would not have bought.
      To stsrt with, the ball head is flimsy and csanot hold up the weight of the light unit. It constantly drooped. In adition, the throw on this unit is barely three feet, certainly not what I expected.
      Of more importance, the battery kept popping out even thought for the first few seconds it stayed put. I read the instruction bok and I heard the click ( as described). Finally, the carrying csase torn, mostly due to fact that the elastics were so tight and it put alot of stress on the tissue surrounding the inside of the case.
      In short , save your money for something more robust.

            Well built light and not heavy. Rechargeable Sony batteries ideal for use, but make sure you buy an extra one, if doing a long day wedding video, to rotate batteries. Come with charger and all items in a pouch which is ideal. This a great value item. I prefer the Sony rechargeable type batteries which slide in at back in seconds and simple gauge for battery level on LED. Flexible colour outputs is ideal to match wedding dress to room lighting, or warm up a cool blue scene in difficult lighting, with dials for warm or cool or mixed and light power levels are useful for closeups at low to high at longer distances to camera.

              I use this product with my Canon 60D DSLR.

              This light definitely packs a punch. Its a tremendous help in just about any lighting situation, especially if you don't have a light kit. In low lighting, if you don't have a wide aperture lens, this light will sufficiently light up your subject or whatever it is you're shooting.
              Adjustable light output is nice, however it is not stepless. Color temp change is also very handy.

              A great product, definitely worth having.

                  This is a really nice, bright light. It's so nice to be able to select the color temp! I had a bride with a ridiculously long train & veil and I was able to match color temp to the portion that was lit from indoor lights- this beats having to turn it up so bright that it over powers the ambient light and makes everybody squint! I gave it 4 stars because the ball mount has me concerned- it's a bit flimsy

                        Used it as a key light through an umbrella, and it produce a beautiful light. This is more practical than using flash with newborns.The kit is complete, but what I am weary is the ball head. I just bought a manfrotto one.

                        Comments about Genaray LED-6500T 209 LED Variable-Color On-Camera Light:

                        I use this for macro shots of flowers, etc., and for fill in portraits of small groups. The construction is excellent; not flimsy and solidly built. The dimmer and temp control work smoothly. The diffuser is very effective and attaches beautifully with the four magnets. One criticism is I wish it was a bit more powerful. I still find it very effective but would perhaps have bought the next more powerful unit. I may still. Another criticism that is more significant is that the ballhead is of very poor quality. I had to rework it in order to get it to lock rigidly. This was a disappointment as everything else was first class.

                        I use this for wedding videography and really saves the project when lighting gets low on the dance floor. I also use it as a fill light for product shots. It can be unscrewed a little easy on the mount.

                          I purchased this Genaray LED on-camera light as a backup to another brand, after trying it out, it is now my main on-camera light. It really makes a huge difference with its color balance, skin tones of my subjects looks natural, there were no "hot spots" it's really a great light for the price. I would recommend it to anyone shooting professional video.
