Ideal for use as a 2-point light system, the AC/DC Genaray SpectroLED Essential 500 Bi-Color LED 2-Light Kit from B&H is ready-made for interviews, ENG work, or any type of location shooting. The kit includes two 13.6 x 9.25 x 2.2" panels and a 6' light stand for each. The lights have 504 LEDs that can be adjusted from 3200 to 5600K or anywhere in between. The fixtures also feature 0-100% dimming, a high CRI, AC or battery options, and a removable yoke allowing them to be stacked with one other SpectroLED Essential 500 panel.

  • 2 x Genaray SpectroLED Essential 500 Bi-Color LED Light

    The SpectroLED Essential 500 Bi-Color LED Light by Genaray is a 504 LED panel with color temperature that's variable from tungsten-balanced 3200K to daylight-balanced 5600K or anywhere in between. Instead of fumbling with filters you can match other light sources or ambient light conditions, or just use color creatively. Light intensity is also variable from 100 - 0% without color shift or flickering.

    The SpectroLED Essential 500 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 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 one master unit to control the color and 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.

    Adjustable Color Temperature
    Variable color output from 3200-5600K allows you to balance color without filters.
    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.
    Battery or AC Power
    Power your light with the included multi-voltage AC adapter or with two optional Sony L-series NP-F 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 stacking and supports such as ball heads.
    Daisy-Chain Control
    Using Genaray's SP-E-MLC Multi Link Cable, you can connect multiple SpectroLEDs together and control color and brightness 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.

SpectroLED Essential 500 Bi-Color LED 2-Light Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Lights Exceed Expectations! I've used several makes of LED lights and decided to get a couple of my own. The choices ranged from questionably cheap to prohibitively expensive. B&H offered a well-priced package with two Bi-color lights and stands so I bit. They're best investment I've made in 40 years! My son teaches filmmaking at a well funded local school, and we compared these Genarays to several of his more expensive units. Dad was right, for a change. These have lighter weight, greater output, AND variable color temperature. I bought two of the Airbox softbox adapters with grids, and was stunned by the performance. Everything fits in a small softbag I got at Cabela's. They are lightweight, predominantly polycarbonate and fast to set up. Just pull 'em out, connect the included power supply, and turn 'em on. Mounting with the yoke perpendicular to the stand gives maximum tilt. You can mount it either way. You can attach the included diffuser in no time, use it naked or with the Airbox unit. They can be stacked for a bigger, punchier unit and have two Sony Type L battery plates. There are easy to use dials for on/off/dimmer and color functions. I love the continuously variable color since I rarely shoot at precise 3200 or 5600K colors... blends just seem more natural. In use, the simple set-up and very punchy output was a real surprise. No fumbling for gels and clothes pins, no diffusion (scrims) or separate dimmers for intensity and no heat literally made my shoot day (17 interviews in 1 1/2 days!) go faster. Each had a different look, so everything moved from shot to shot. There is NO WAY I could have done that without these units. Did I mention I was alone? I simply cannot stress enough how these lights have made my shooting faster, more productive and visually better than ever before. The saving in weight and hassle means I'm not wasting energy with mundane tasks, leaving me more time to be creative. Don't waste more time, this is what you were looking for. Simply the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy customization I like the variable brightness and color. You can set it exactly how you need it. Plenty bright. It would have been nice to have a carrying case included. Power cords nice and long. I like the option of battery powered, but each light must have two batteries. One battery won't work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid LED kit for the money These won't light up a large room, but for a smaller scene, output is fine, even with the included diffuser panels attached. Stands are adequate because the LED panels are fairly light, though the twin batteries to bulk them up a bit. If you were going to stack them - particular with battery power - some sturdier stands might be in order. Wish there were some barn doors included. But overall, a decent value compared to the other offerings out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portable and Amazing Not only are these lights extremely portable, they have incredible flexibility with the color adjustment options and extreme brightness. Perfect for interviews!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Studio Lights! This kit is great!  Easy to use and provide very good lighting that is adjustable.  Light weight and with a lot of options.  I use these to take photos of quilts.  I need proper light to capture the various colours of the quilts.  The power cords are long (and sturdy) making it easy to space the lights, height and angle are easily adjusted to get the light just right.
