Genaray Beacon LED overview

  • 1Description

The Beacon LED Wand-Style Light from Genaray is a perfectly-named 2.3" diameter tubular light source that measures 22" in length and can easily bring some "magic" to your work. The Wand makes an ideal sidelight, rim light, or hair light. Since it doesn't generate any heat, you can get as close as you like to your subject for special effects, or you can even tape it to a wall or shelf for use as an up-light.

The Beacon runs on a removable, rechargeable battery that can give you up to 1.5 hours of run time on a full charge. Since the battery is removable, you can have a spare at the ready. The charging cord doubles as a 100-240 VAC adapter so that you can charge it or use it connected to a mains power source with the battery inside anywhere in the world.

The Beacon's 312 LEDs are 5600K daylight-balanced, but you can use the included filter to change it to 3200K tungsten-balance to match other fixtures or ambient light conditions. Light intensity is flexible too, allowing dimming from 10-100% while maintaining a high CRI rating of 95.2 for accurate color rendering

Although the most fun is to be had by handholding the Beacon, it's also mountable to a variety of grip equipment via its 1/4"-20 female thread. This is where another hidden asset comes in; the Beacon has a 4-channel receiver built into it so that with separate purchase of Genaray's WB-WRT remote, you can adjust the light level or put the fixture into sleep mode. Finally, the Beacon has another hidden feature to make sure that your shoot isn't scrubbed because of the rain. The light's IP65 rated water-resistance makes it immune to moisture, splashes, and precipitation

Daylight or Tungsten
The Beacon's 312 daylight-balanced LED can easily be converted to tungsten balance with the included filter.
High Color Accuracy
The light's high CRI of 95.2 indicates precise and faithful color rendering.
AC or DC Use
The Beacon can run on its integrated battery or via AC current with the 100-240 VAC charger/adapter.
Battery Power
The 4400 mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery is removable so you can have a spare charged battery at the ready.
Four-Channel Receiver
A 4-channel receiver is built into the Beacon allowing it to be dimmed or put into sleep mode wirelessly with separate purchase of Genaray's 2.4 GHz WB-WRT remote.
The built-in diffuser takes the edge off the LEDs, producing a soft, flattering quality of light.
The Beacon can be dimmed from 10-100% on the unit or remotely via the optional remote for the perfect light level.
You never have to worry about the weather with the Beacon. Its IP65 water-resistant rating means that it's immune to rain or splashes.

    Genaray Beacon LED reviews

    Beacon LED Wand-Style Light is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best LED light around This light has been a great addition to my kit. As a commercial photographer I need functional and durable gear that helps me create images that exceeds my client's expectations. The Genaray SpectorLED light does just that. The adjustable power makes it great for low light and daylight use. I was surprised how bright this light got and that I was able to use it outside with sunlight, or I could use it in a very dark room and not overpower the ambient light. The tungsten sleeve makes going from daylight to tungsten easy. Being able to balance out the color temperature of the light is an awesome feature. The battery life on this is great too. I was able to do several long shoots without having to recharge the battery. This is important on wedding days, or long commercial shoots. I also love that it threads into a light stand, this makes my life much easier, I don't have to rely on trying to find someone to hold it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty Good I bought two of these lights this month while they were on sale. They are nice quality and work as intended. The only thing I realized is that they seem to flicker pretty bad for video. So I will most likely be using them soley�for photo work.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this addition to my toolbox I have found this light to be more than bright enough for indoors. I haven't tried outdoors yet. The base is not flat and won't allow it to stand on a flat surface (-1 star). I found a fix, see pics. The diameter is a little over 2.25 and maybe a little large for small hands. Great battery life, soft light, balanced.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it I only have this light for a few days and after running a few tests (not very intense ones) I’m pretty happy with the result. Strong light. I still don’t know how long the battery will last. The only downside is that both edges are round and not flat to work as a stand, this way you will always need a tripod or an assistant.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Piece of Lighting Gear (Great Battery Life) I love this light and have added it to my "A" list of location lighting gear. Although I love it and use it often I give it 4 stars because you can not charge batteries unless they are in the light. Also there is no room in the carrying bag for the charger. There is room for the light and one battery. I also have the barn doors and there is no room in the bag for them.� Now with those shortcomings the light has a lot to offer. I use it as a fill light on location if I need that "little bump" of light in the right spot. Sometimes the extra fill is just as important as the main light. I have had my assistant hold it on a stick for fill light at a dark wedding venue.� I have used it for product photography, again as a fill light.� But most of all I have used it for vlog lighting. I have a second battery, but have never had to use it. Battery seems to go on forever.� I have used this light when the power went of at my house during as a storm, plenty of light.� Barn doors are awesome, just wish I could carry everything in one bag. I am also going to purchase the remote. Mounts to light stands via a 1/4-20.
