Genaray MB-50BV overview

  • 1Description

With its monolight form factor, S-Type front accessory mount, variable color temperature, and AC or 12 VDC battery power options, the MonoBright LED Bi-Color 750 fixture from Generay can be easily integrated into a wide range of projects. The MonoBright employs a HiBrite microLED PCB to output the equivalent power of a 750W tungsten fixture while consuming only 100W of current.

The MonoBright's high CRI rating of >90 means that the light packs precision with power for faithful rendition of colors down to the subtlest tones. And since the color is variable from 3200 to 5600K you won't have to worry about fumbling with filters whether you're shooting in daylight or tungsten color temperature environments. 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 option 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 remote has 99 channels, so you can control at least that many lights in unison or individually. The remote can also control the color temperature from 3200 to 5600K or anywhere in between. The MonoBright is rated for use with 100-240 VAC for worldwide use but the light will also work with 12 VDC batteries via its 4-pin XLR input. Also included are a 7", 60° umbrella/grid reflector, and shower cap-style diffuser.

HiBrite microLED PCB
Thanks to its HiBrite microLED PCB, the Genaray MonoBright LED Bi-Color 750 delivers 8,000 lux of continuous light and draws only 100W to produce the equivalent output of a 750W open-face tungsten light
Variable Color Temperature
With color variable from 3200 to 5600K or anywhere in between, you won't be losing time taping on filters. Shoot anywhere you like from daylight conditions to tungsten balanced indoor lighting. Just dial in the correct color temperature to match your environment.
Dimming 10-100%
Dim the brightness from 10 to 100% via the onboard controls or the optional wireless remote
Color Rendering Index (CRI) of >90
High CRI ensures faithful rendering of colors - even the subtlest tones
Wireless Remote
The optional 2.4 GHz remote control allows you to wirelessly adjust output and color temperature for multiple MonoBright units - even at different settings. The 99 channel unit has a wireless range of up to 98' (30 m)
S-Mount Front Accessory Mount and Umbrella Channel
The MonoBright has an S-mount 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 optional wireless remote - your previous settings will appear on the control panel
LCD Readout
LCD display with large numbers for optimal readability, even in bright daylight
Sleep Mode
Powers down the light when not in use

    Genaray MB-50BV reviews

    MonoBright LED Bi-Color 750 is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good output for an affordable, bi-color LED Good outpot for an affordable, bi-color LED, but it does have some fan-noise and it has a fixed pattern in the middle if you have no diffusion in front. Not a big problem for me as I would always use some sort of diffusion with this type of light anyway. Build quality is a 3/5 using a hard plastic housing. Doesn't feel like it would break easily, but it can't be compared to a metal housing. Overall a decent light, at a low price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally an affordable option! While these lights are not top of the line, these lights are far better than any other LED option at this price point. The CRI is very good, and color temperature and dimmers adjustments work great. Looking forward to having the remote control to reach lights high on stands. Light output is great from these heads. And compatibility with my still equipment modifiers makes these heads the perfect solution for me. Looking forward to a bi-color 1200!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not professional quality I was hoping for a product that would be high quality and usable for both photography and video...I am returning these lights. $ is way too much for these cheap lights.1. There is a fan, which is not ideal for video production2. The PCB LED creates a pattern, the lighting is therefore uneven. You have to use a diffuser to mask the pattern, which also dims the output substantially.3. These units are available under several brands and are much cheaper. 4. Color temperature light quality is just okay.5. Overall build quality is not good enough to use on a daily basis.6.Control knobs are not smooth and feel like they will breakI would say these lights are usable, but not worth $, if they were $-$, I could live with them. You can get the daylight version of this light from other companies for $

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love 'em... but... I think this is a great light for the price. I love the output, remote control ability and the bi-color feature. I will buy more but it has a couple of issues that WILL cause problems for some of you. I've shot with Bowens compatible strobes for more than thirty years. I have piles of reflectors, speed rings etc for Bowens. Many are Bowens branded. The mount on this light fits almost none of them. One good speed ring that has an issue fitting some of my other lights, fits this thing perfectly... and that's all I need right now. Some careful grinding on other bits should be able to make them fit as well. Just know that you're planning on using a lot of Bowens mount accessories, you may be in for a bit of customizing to make them work. I'm shooting stills with this light (fill light for interiors). I don't care about fan noise. If shooting video and recording sound... the noise is enough to concern you. No worse than any strobes that I used, but its there. The uneven light pattern with the standard reflector is there. The slightest bit of diffusion will get rid of it. it's subtle enough to only be noticeable if trying to light a clean flat area (wall or bg). I would always use a light like this with some diffusion, so not a concern at all for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price Use it for video. Yes, there is a slight fan noise. Not a big deal. Yes, if you use them without any kind of reflector or diffusion you might be able to see a slight pattern somewhere but really, how often does that happen? They are made of plastic and may break apart with some heavy set use, but when buying three of them in a kit with soft boxes for way under $1k, what can you expect. For the money, unbelievable. Thinking of vying another kit to leave open in the office!
    Date published: 2017-08-01
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not useful Unfortunately the light is not even, with a strong shadow/highlight effect near the center when the reflector is attached - rendering this system pretty useless ...
    Date published: 2016-01-19
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Issues with several lights I purchased two of these lights with a kit.� The first light kept turning on and off.� I did get it to stop at one point, but then it started again and just continues to turn on and off.� The 2nd light shuts down if I just touch the power connector on the unit.� Kind of hard to avoid not touching it if you have it up on a stand and are trying to adjust something.� I also notice that the color temperature of the light fixtures are not the same even though the settings are equal.� B&H did replace the broken one, very quickly I might add.� So, with the third one I'm able to notice the color differences.� They come on the same, but eventually one will change.� I'm an audio guy playing in the video world and bought a cheaper set-up just to learn and get some experience with a Green Screen set up.� Not a big deal to me really, but I wouldn't use this set-up professionally......
