Genaray MB-100DWV overview

  • 1Description

With its monolight form factor, S-Type front accessory mount and AC or 12 VDC battery power options, the MonoBright Daylight LED 1200 fixture from Genaray can be easily integrated into a wide range of projects. The MonoBright employs a HiBrite 5200K microLED PCB to output the equivalent power of a 1,200W tungsten fixture while consuming only 100W of current.

Its high CRI rating of >90 means that the light packs precision with power for faithful rendition of colors down to the subtlest tones. Another handy feature is the dimming range of 10-100% so you won't have to move the light once you have it perfectly positioned. And if you've mounted the MonoBright in a hard to reach place you'll appreciate the inclusion of a 2.4 GHz wireless remote control that can dim the light at distances up to 98' as well as turn it on or off. The MonoBright can run on 100-240 VAC mains voltage for worldwide use but the light also has a 4-pin XLR input for a battery cable and 12V battery (available separately). Also included are a 7", 60 degree umbrella/grid reflector, a spare fuse, and shower cap-style diffuser.

HiBrite microLED PCB
Thanks to its HiBrite microLED PCB, the Genaray MonoBright LED 1200 delivers 14,000 lux of continuous light and draws only 100W to produce the equivalent output of a 1,200W open-face tungsten light
Dimming 10-100%
Dim the brightness from 10 to 100% via the onboard controls or the included wireless remote
Color Rendering Index (CRI) of >90
High CRI ensures faithful rendering of colors - even the subtlest tones
Wireless Remote
The included 2.4 GHz remote control allows you to wirelessly adjust output for multiple MonoBright units - even at different settings. The 99 channel unit has a wireless range of up to 98'
S-Type Front Accessory Mount and Umbrella Channel
The MonoBright has an S-type front accessory mount for the included umbrella/grid reflector and the many accessories made by other brands that use this mount. Additionally, the stand mount has a built-in channel for umbrella shafts
Worldwide AC Voltage and Optional DC Battery
The MonoBright can run on worldwide AC voltage or an optional 12 VDC battery via a Genaray MonoBright battery cable (available separately)
Built-In Memory
A built-in memory function saves your settings on the MonoBright control panel. The next time you turn on the MonoBright- even with the wireless remote - your previous settings will appear on the control panel

    Genaray MB-100DWV reviews

    MonoBright Daylight LED 1200 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failure just after Two Years Purchased this light on 2/2/16 and used it nominally, maybe ~ 40 hours total. Started it today 2/14/18 and it simply blinks every few seconds. Called the manufacturer. They informed me (a) The light is out of warranty and (b) Cannot be fixed. The manufactured offered to exchange (?) it for 20% off list; which works out to $345… meanwhile B&W is selling it for $354.95. NO I will not buy a replacement from the manufacturer at a $9.00 discount. This really stinks as I was quite happy with the light until it failed two (2) years and two (2) weeks into owning it. I would expect much more life out of a *professional-grade* product.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too loud!!! It was going to be a perfect light. Very powerful. Much more light that the Westcott LED I wanted to replace (because it is way too dim). But this otherwise fantastic light makes way too much noise. The fan can be heard across the room. If you don't need it quit, it seems awesome.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light! Nice finishing and very bright! Just bought this Genaray Monobright and I'm very happy about it. I had a pretty bad experience with a similar LED light, same price range, that looked really good but after only 200 hours/use or so it simply died on me. This right away looks and feels a lot better constructed. Even tough there's a lot of plastic, it feels solid. It's light weighted, the fan is silent and it's definitely bright. I did a rough light meter reading at full power and it gave me 670 foot-candles at 1m (3.28ft) with the included reflector on, and 250 FC without the reflector. This is a great light to have if you are transitioning from still photography into video and have a bunch of octabanks, chimeras, beauty dishes with bowens mount. Now you get to use them again! With my Elinchrom octabank, it gave me a 1/50 f2.8 ISO 100 reading at around 2m distance from subject. That's good for me. Now I'll see how long it lasts and if it's reliable for professional use. Looks promising!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bang for the buck! Overall, I'm very pleased with this light. Output and color are constant and after many many hours of use, I didn't see any shifts or tints. Despite the plastic accessory and light stand mount, I find them to be strong and solid enough to hold some fairly large and front heavy light modifiers. After creating a variety of portraits with different modifiers, and changing the quality of light, I have to say that I really enjoy shooting with these LED lights. Surprisingly, you can create some really nice hard shadows and produce some very dramatic, Hollywood style lighting. The remote isn't necessary but it is a nice accessory, especially with a multi-light kit. Compared to many, if not most of the other LED continuous lights available, I really think the Genaray's offer great bang for the buck in a really solid light source that can be used for many types and styles of photography.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best budget LED fixture This is by far the best budget fixture of any light type on the market right now. Output roughly equivalent to a Joker 400, decent/good color, and well built for the price. Add the Aputure Fresnel and its basically a joker 400 for $400. The bowens mount as allowed these to replace 10 different fixtures in my kit. Does make a little noise, if you're in a small room with no other ambiance and with no back track, but proper mic placement negates basically all of the issue. Anything with music, its completely a non issue. (overall its less noise than the average HMI anyways) I've worked numerous DP and Gaffer jobs with these and no one can believe how good these are.

I absolutely recommend these lights, you will not be disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from YES! Diversity & Power I love the fact that I can take my photography modifiers and give them double usage to use them here for my video work. This guys has a lot of power which I need, and works well with a softbox or barndoors!
