Genaray Soft Strip Overview

  • 1Description

Offering a soft wrap-around quality thanks to its long, narrow form factor and 256 bright LEDs, the 36" long Soft Strip LED Light from Genaray is a versatile fixture with features that are easy to use in the studio or on location. The light has color temperature that's a solid, daylight-balanced 5600K with a high CRI/TLCI rating of 95/98.3, an indicator of precise color rendering. Using the included dimmer, light intensity is variable from 100 to 10%, avoiding moving the fixture back and forth to achieve the desired illumination level.

The SSL-36 runs barely warm to the touch, allowing you to work close to the subject without causing discomfort or hot light hazards. The power-saving light produces an output of 1284 lux at 3' while consuming just 56W of power, helping you keep the temperature of your set and your operational costs down.

The long, narrow fixture can be used vertically or horizontally. In vertical orientation, the SSL-36 is ideal for use as a sidelight or for dramatic lighting. It also creates long, elegant reflections when shooting products. In horizontal mode, the light has a wrap-around quality with appealing falloff at the top and bottom of the frame. Another use is overhead as a hair light.

The SSL-36 has a beam angle coverage of 68 degrees, which can be modified and controlled by its two-way barndoors. The fixture comes with a multi-voltage adapter that makes it ready for world use, but it can also run on optional V-mount batteries when AC power is unavailable. A case is included to store and transport the light.

Horizontal or Vertical Orientation
The long, thin form factor gives a wrap-around quality when used horizontally. Used vertically, it's well-suited for a sidelight or for lighting objects and casting a long, elegant reflection.
2-Way Barndoors
This simple but effective modifier allows you to swing one or more leaves into the light's beam for selective lighting of your subject.
Lollipop Mount
The mount incorporates a ball head attachment with ratchet handle that provides precise fine-tuning and adjustment of the light's position. Using it gives you the option to quickly change the light's orientation from horizontal to vertical or to any position within the ball head's 360° adjustable range.
AC or Optional Battery Power
The SSL-36 ships with a multi-voltage 100-240 VAC power supply but it can also run on V-mount batteries when mains power is unavailable.
Even Illumination
The SSL-36 provides even illumination along its 36"-inch length, without noticeable hot spots. When shooting full-length portraits or group shots, this fixture bathes your subjects in soft and diffuse wraparound light without multiple shadows.
Cool Running
The SSL-36 runs barely warm to the touch allowing you to work close to your subject without discomfort and without losing time waiting for the fixture to cool down.
The light features 100 to 10% dimming to adjust the output without moving the fixture back and forth.
Quiet Operation
The light's fanless convection cooling is a valuable asset in sound-sensitive environments.

    Genaray Soft Strip Reviews

    SSL-36 Soft Strip LED Light is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I wanted to replace to old softbox lights that I use for educational videos, bought two of these Genaray 36" soft strip light, ( instead to a DIY LED from Home Depot). I have done two sessions, and just love these lights, for me, great quality of light, ( 5600K) and very nice consistency. The build is excellent, the bar doors work well, and candidly there is a sense of overall quality and design that one gets when using the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creative Lighting and Catch lights So far this light has been great, high quality light color and bright output. The build is solid and I always appreciate when a light comes with a case. It fits everything you need so thats a plus. The mounting arm (lollipop) allows you to angle the light how you need it so it gets way more useful then just tilting it up or down. The barn doors are there, the diffusion is there so all you need is a V-mount battery and you are good for on the go shooting. This sounds small but I really like the way the power brick clips on the V-mount adaptor. This eliminates having the power brick dangling when using AC power. If you have two of these, you can really use these in a creative way for portraits or video. You can use it a more traditional way or you can get creative and get really unique catch lights with portraits or get a really nice stylized background for music videos. This light gets an A++. If you get one I would suggest getting a set. Having two will open up a lot more possibilities.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from outstanding quality, nice controls, battery options I had very good experience with the 500W Genaray Daylight LED lights, so these lights looked like a good replacement for the bulky soft boxes i was using. These 36" soft strip LED lights are really excellent, they exceeded my expectations, I use them for lighting subjects as well as a green screen,

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Ton Of Light From Subtle To Extreme So once again I am floored by the outstanding quality of Genaray lights. Like the other reviewer said here, it comes with a bag like many of Genaray's lights which is a bonus for travel. Just unboxing and opening this light I was sold on it before I even plugged it in. You see and feel the quality on this unit. Heavy solid construction, nothing overlooked when it comes to durability, ease of use and also safety (as it's quite heavy) I have not used a Lollipop mount to this point and was surprised how easy it was to assemble and adjust. The light can be practically spun in 360 degrees when it comes to mounting and positioning it. Like other Genaray lights I own, variable output from 10% to 100% is the same here. A little light or see me from outer space light, the Genaray 36" Soft Strip Led light will get the job done again and again. My 1st try using the light was positioned high up on a sturdy light stand (you'll want a solid stand for this light, again, it's fairly heavy). Probably about 7 feet in the air, in a horizontal position. I used this to illuminate my green screen background and it did it perfectly and my chromakey work has never been easier! I agree with the other review here too on a couple points: - good for both video and creative portrait work - getting a second one to use as a pair is something that would be a good investment and will yield stunning results. The only negative I will say is why did it take me so long to discover Genaray? I am a musician as well as a photographer & video creator. I value my Genaray lights as much as I do my most expensive musical instruments. And just like those instruments when I do a job, I know I can count on them. And when it comes to my lighting needs, I know I can count on Genaray. Highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Soft Light in Price Range This light is bright, soft, well built, works off a V-mount and comes with a lollipop mount, barn doors and decent carrying case. For $200 youre looking at the poor mans version of an ARRI SkyPanel S60 (minus a bunch of color features), but the ARRI is almost $6,000. I have 2 of them and for interviews or anything narrative where you dont need a ton of light (2k or more tungsten equivalent) these do the trick. Genaray, if youre reading this, wed love a version with RGB included.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful wrapping or directional light This is a great light to add to a kit of various LED lighting tools. I did not give it a 5-star because the power supply is a bit awkward. Once you understand why it was designed the way it is, it make sense, but the engineers solution is not what you find on other LED lights.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quality Control? I ordered a set of these. One worked without any issues. The other would not power using the battery plate. I returned the unit to B&H because they said they couldn't just send me a new battery mount. The next unit I received worked using the battery mount but there was a section of the light that was flickering. I returned that light as well. I just received the THIRD unit today and AGAIN it won't power using the battery.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great versatile lighting! I picked one of these up when it was on sale just to give it a try since I was looking for some good continuous lighting. I must say this light offers a great variation between subtle and powerful light that seems to always be nice and soft. The barn doors let you do some really creative shots that can be altered by rotating the light in vertical, horizontal, and diagonal positions.

    the 6 light pack says it only comes with 2 ac adapters. I am hoping this is wrong and it comes with 6. Is this the case or do I still need 4 more ac adapters?
    Asked by: Michael
    The kit options for this light will come with one AC adapter per light.

    We've got a boom and it works with a decent size counterweight. Can't tell you which one the guy in the video is using, sorry. You'd need a solid boom.
