The Genaray ENG 3-Light Kit was put together by B&H to provide a fast and easy, highly mobile setup for interviews, spot news and reportage. The kit contains a Monobright Daylight LED 750 LED Light, 2 SpectroLED Essential 240 Daylight LED panels, 3 compact light stands, a white translucent umbrella and a carry case.
Monobright 750 LED Light
With its monolight form factor, S-Type front accessory mount and AC or 12 VDC battery power options, the Genaray MonoBright Daylight LED 750 fixture 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 750W tungsten fixture while consuming only 50W 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, and shower-cap-style diffuser.
SpectroLED Essential 240 LED Panel
The SpectroLED Essential 240 LED Panel is a compact light source with a color temperature of 5,600K, local dimming from 0-100% and a 60 degree flood beam angle. Made of a high-impact polymer, the light weighs just 2.5 lb including its yoke with 5/8" receiver. The yoke has a handy feature that allows you to tilt it forward so that the panel can be tilted at extreme angle out of the way of the stand. The yoke is removable and you can use the provided clips to stack another panel without the yoke on top of a yoke supported unit. Up to 3 panels can be stacked. Other mounting options include two 1/4"-20 taps on the 5.8 x 11.75 x 2.1" panel frame for customized support options with grip gear. An offset diffuser is provided to soften the light's output.
The SpectroLED Essential 240 Daylight is powered by the included 100-240 VAC adapter but it also has a built-in battery plate for optional Sony NP-F batteries for use when mains power is unavailable. Several lights can be daisy-chained using an optional SP-E-MLC Multi Link Cable that allows the first light in the chain to act as a Master unit that is mimicked by the connected slaves.
Compact Light Stand
The Impact LS-RL7 7.2' Reverse Legs Light Stand is a lightweight support that's ideal for location work or in the studio for use with a small lights or to hold reflectors. This is one of the few stands to be able to sit completely flush to the floor where they can be taped down or sandbagged to stabilize its load. The LS-RL7's unique design allows the legs to fold up around the central risers somewhat like an inverted umbrella. The result is a 7.2' light stand that breaks down to only 19.5" - short enough to fit in even the smallest light kit bags. The stand is topped with a 5/8" mounting stud with 3/8" threads, a 3/8" 1/4"-20 adapter, and weighs just 2.6 lb.
White Translucent Umbrella
This Impact 33" White Translucent Umbrella is suggested for use in head-and-shoulders portraits for one or two persons. The umbrella can be used in the traditional bounce mode or the "shot through" mode in which the light is pumped through an umbrella whose back is aimed at the subject.
The 15 x 20 x 12" LKB-4B Light Kit Bag from Impact is a light but durable case that is designed to safely transport and protect lighting equipment. Ideally sized for LED panels, it is also suitable for studio strobe systems, continuous light systems, and a variety of equipment needed in the studio or on location.
The outer shell and interior walls are all reinforced with heavy-duty plastic panels to ensure the structural integrity of the bag. Adjustable dividers can be configured to your needs within the 18.5 x 14.5 x 10.5" interior to keep your lights and gear organized and secure. A generous zippered mesh storage compartment provides plenty of room for cables and other small accessories.
The LKB-4B has a weather resistant, heavy-duty 600 denier ballistic nylon shell fitted with anti-slip rubber feet. Carrying options include a detachable adjustable shoulder strap, overlapping top handles, and rubber grip side handles. For added security, the heavy-gauge dual zippers accept an optional lock.
