Genaray SP-E-500D overview

  • 1Description

The SpectroLED Essential 500 Daylight LED Light by Genaray is a 504 LED panel with a daylight-balanced, digital-friendly color temperature of 5600K and 100-0% dimming without color shift or flickering.

The SpectroLED offers a 60° flood beam angle and a high CRI for precise and faithful color rendering. The 9.25 x 13.6 x 2.2" panel weighs just 2.5 lb and with its slim profile and barely perceptible warmth can be placed in areas that traditional fixtures just can't go. Another benefit of using LEDs is low power draw; although it uses just 40W of power, it outputs many times that number meaning a rapid return on investment. If you need more power Genaray has got that covered too; the light's removable yoke and included clips allow you to stack up to 3 units for triple the power. You can even "daisy chain" several units using the separately purchased SP-E-MLC Multi-Link Cable which allows 1 "master" unit to control light intensity of the others.

Power options are equally versatile. Use the included multi-voltage AC adapter to run the SpectroLED anywhere in the world, or shed the power cord and employ two optional Sony L-series NP-F type batteries when mains current is unavailable.

Daylight Color Balance
The SpectroLED has a digital-friendly, daylight-balanced color temperature of 5600K that facilitates shooting outdoors or in venues with large windows. Filters are easily applied to alter the Kelvin temperature to fit your needs.
100-0% Dimming
The SpectroLED is dimmable from 100-0% without color shift and flicker.
High CRI
The SpectroLED's high CRI rating ensures vibrant, accurate rendition of color.
Removable Yoke
The removable yoke can be mounted horizontally or vertically on a light stand, allowing you to position the fixture so the yoke doesn't cast a shadow.
Battery or AC Power
Power your light with the included multi-voltage AC adapter or with two optional Sony L-series NP-F type batteries when mains power is unavailable.
Flexible Mounting
The light has an industry-standard 5/8" receiver for stand mounting as well as 1/4"-20 top and bottom taps for supports such as ball heads.
Daisy Chain Control
Using Genaray's SP-E-MLC Multi-Link Cable, you can connect multiple SpectroLEDs together and brightness of all of them from one master unit.
Thanks to its removable yoke, you can use the included clips to stack up to 3 lights for triple the power.

    Genaray SP-E-500D reviews

    SpectroLED Essential 500 Daylight LED Light is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Really Really Good, But Not Perfect This product serves as a great light: it's output is great, it's efficiency is great, and for everything from production to just a fill light for working, it's a killer light. Packs really small, it's lightweight, and well made. Mainly, my issues are with the color temp. It's pretty cool, I'd argue a little bit cooler than advertised. And there are no real devices built into the light to filter or gel it to match color temp. If there was some sort of gel fittings or otherwise rigs built to be able to mount some filters to this light, it would be 5 stars.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Light, Bad Design Honestly, when you're paying less than $200 for an LED light this bright, it's hard to complain about little things, but I'm nothing if not nitpicky, so here we go. The good: the light is extremely bright, and has a *decent* throw. If you're coming from hotlights you'll be disappointed with the throw but if you're coming from flourescent or other LEDs you will not. It actually has a very solid build quality and I used it on set for an entire day off of two NP-F 970s and didn't run into any problems. The diffuser works well and the dimmer gives good flexibility to its usage. It's also pretty light and small, especially for the amount of light that it gives off. The bad: the diffuser that comes with it is a bizarre size and shape, and comes down past the light so far that you literally cannot set the light at a tilt because the diffuser catches on the yoke. I solved this by simply cutting the excess off the bottom. Also, not a big deal but the power dial is mislabeled. It has on where it's actually off and off where it's actually on. The functionality is fine, it's just labeled opposite of what's actually going on with the light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright, Beautiful and Balanced! I've spent the day with a so far and it's a beautiful light. The only thing there was nothing specifying that the stand and come with it. Just annoying that's all. What's the current sale this thing is unbelievable. Love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent light I love shooting in natural light, and this provides a balanced fill light. For example, if I am shooting in a room and using the window as my key light, this light provides excellent fill.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for quick interview setups When working as a one man shooter this light is fast to setup and will run for over three hours on two np970 batteries at full power. That translates to a reasonable shoot day when used as a lower power back light or fill. The fixture housing is made of a ridged plastic so extra care must be given to handling and transport. Overall a nice quality variable output daylight balanced unit I would recommend when on a tight budget.
