Genaray ESDFS-KIT reviews

Escort Daylight LED Interview 3-Light Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from the chargers are terrible I don't usually have time to give reviews, these issues have inspired me. The lights and batteries are good but the battery charges are terrible. I have 12 of them, only 4 work after 2 months. Here are the issues: - some of the contacts get depressed into the housing. I was able to pull them back out with tweezers. - some show a green light regardless of the status of the battery. - some just burn out. - all have weak connections to the cord and plate. It can be fixed with a little duct tape. I went into BH to buy better charges and they sold me the wrong kin...and I have a commercial shoot tomorrow morning. Uuuhhhhggg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight and easy setup - perfect for my kit The convenience of these lights is what got me. I love how lightweight they are. It's not a hassle hauling this bag around and the power you get from such a light light package is excellent. I do a lot of sit down doc style interviews and these are perfect for a 3 point lighting set up. The remote is a godsend as you don't have to stand up every time to adjust. The mounts that come with these are also super convenient. They come with handheld mounts and stand mounts. The handheld are great if you're doing a lot of run and gun stuff. The stand mounts are excellent as they're able to be adjusted so that your light can face straight out or straight down and any iteration in between. Overall I'm very happy with this kit. It's great for someone who wants something lightweight and reliable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Lightweight Kit. An Incredible Value! I have a 10 minute video review of these lights and a similar Dracast set at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywiC9EiCccY These lights are an incredible deal. They are powerful, lightweight, energy efficient and come with a plethora of included accessories: 6 batteries, chargers for all at the same time, wifi remote control, hard plastic warming filters, barn doors, and a case for it all. All you need are some stands and sandbags. I can't detect any flicker below 1500th of a second, which allows a wicked fast frame rate. They are a bit plastic feeling compared with my Dracast set, but they come with so much more included. I saw the comment on the chargers having a problem. I'm only a month in, but I haven't had that issue yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best kit ever for the money! I teach video production to high school students and they always thought lights were too much of a hassle until I got this kit now they use them all the time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from bright with all the accessories Note: I have not tried these LEDs out on a shoot yet, this is my impression of trying out at home. This lights are flippin' bright! Light weight, all the batteries, chargers (AC and car), etc. you need. Nice carrying case, too. It did not come with the remote control dimmer manual, so you have to download the 12 page PDF from the manufacture's website. I'm happy so far

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheap and disappointing I went into the New York store with my eyes set on the Aputure 672 three light kit, but the salesperson immediately led me over to these lights. The sales pitch: Practically the same output as the Aputure, but with included barn doors and three compact light stands from Impact. The salesperson claimed that the sales of the Aputure kit had gone down to almost nothing after these came out, due to the much better value. Being a fool in a hurry with not much time to reseach all over again, I stupidly took his advice, bought the kit and left back home to Europe. A big mistake. I've been a pro stills shooter for decades, and needed a simple interview setup. I should have bought the Aputure kit instead. Genaray is nothing but a house brand for B&H, just as Impact, Angler and close to 50 other brands they push as cheaper alternatives to higher grade equipment. I am disappointed by how I was presented this as a equal alternativ to the Aputure Amaran kit, when it clearly is of much lower quality. It leaves the impression that B&H is pushing cheap house brand stuff on easily persuaded customers like me. The light output itself is ok, which is why I give two stars instead of one. Here is why I still dislike this kit: - The build quality is super cheap and the adjustments are done by tapping plus and minus-fields on the back, not with a rotating button like the Aputure. This interface is inconvenient when you are pressed for time, and gives you no tactile feedback at all. - The barn doors are permanently attached, whereas I assumed they could snap on and off easily. Moreover, they are silver and shiny inside like a reflector, causing light to fly everywhere. Why not make them black, like they should be for effectively blocking light? - I needed a soft box, and was sold two Angler soft boxes. They don't fit, because of the barn doors. If I manage to wrangle the softbox in place, I have to keep the doors shut. When the softbox is mounted, it is impossible to open the barn doors again. I guess I'll have to undo all those 16 small screws on each panel and throw the doors away. Still, the Angler softbox is super inconvenient compared to the Aputure solution. - The lights use a weird, cheap and proprietary plastic attachment system instead of a proven and reliable quarter twenty bolt connection in the bottom of the panel. There is 1/4-20 bolt holes on each side, though, I guess I'll have to mount the lights 90 degrees for a secure fit to my stands and standard adapters. They also comes with handgrips, if you prefer to have someone hand hold your lights. I'd much rather have standard attachments like the Aputure. - The bag is a joke and offers close to no protection, with soft side walls that bulges around my waist when I carry it on my shoulder. The zipper doesn't glide smooth, but instad feels like it's gonna break any minute. No surprise, I didn't buy this to get a top of the pops bag, but at least it fits the concept well. In closing: If you have decided on quality stuff but are presented with a cheaper alternatives from an unknown brand in the B&H store, you know they make this move to earn more on their house brands. Stay away. A big mistake. I've been a pro stills shooter for decades, and needed a simple interview setup. I should have bought the Aputure kit instead. Here is why: -

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kit for mobile shoots The mobility of the lights and battery operated capabilities really makes setting up for shoots a breeze. Guam Sports Network loves it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome package. Love these lights. One of the barn doors is loose, so it just flaps losed. I think maybe needs tightening, but the color and strength of these lights is great and the remote is great. The remote is not perfect though, doesn't always do what I want, and I wish it was set up a little easier, a few more buttons would make it quicker, but typically I set the level and then use the on off to save battery, and saves me from having to raise and lower the stand constantly to turn it on (which I was doing with another light). I use it at wedding receptions to light the dance floor, just use 1 typically, the spot (as I can put it further away to get a nice side angle (and depending on which way I'm shooting hair light). Because I have these on a big 13foot stand harder to move around, so I still use a smaller light to light toasts, but these lights do the trick. Used it for a corporate green screen shoot too. Had the floods light the screen from both sides, used the spot with a universal softbox that I purchased for that shoot that works with these lights, and used another light for a hair light. Again, remote function is REALLY helpful on location. They make these in bicolor too, but you'll lose brightness. I will note that it comes with a TON of accessories. I think they could have cut down on some of these things if they were smarter about how they made them. For example they have a mount that is basically a handle, if you want to hand hold the lights. It would have been super easy to make a light stand mount that was also a handheld mount, but since I don't really handhold these (although that could be useful in some scenarios), I just don't bring all those with me. Charger could have also functioned as power source, but they have a separate power cable. In some ways good (I leave chargers at home plugged in), in other ways just seems like a missed opportunity to save space. Everything fits in the bag, and comes packed nicely. Nice bag too.
