Genaray Radiance Overview

  • 1Description

The Radiance Daylight LED Monolight from Genaray is a Chip-on- Board (COB)-powered fixture with a 5600K color temperature that consumes only 230W of power while outputting up to 23,000 lux at a distance of 3', while maintaining a high CRI/TLCI rating of 95. Output is flicker-free to allow shooting at high frame rates and is dimmable from 100 to 0%. While you can make light intensity adjustments locally on the fixture, you can also can also do it remotely from a console via onboard DMX or make them at distances up to 164' using the included wireless remote control.

Ideal for sound-sensitive environments, the Radiance employs whisper- quiet fans that dispel what little heat that the unit generates, both protecting the light's electronics and lengthening the life of the LEDs. The performance of the Radiance is backed by its clever design. The all-metal construction provides years of rigorous use, while the separate controller/power supply reduces the weight of the lamp head allowing greater mounting options. The Radiance is ready for worldwide use thanks to its 100-240 VAC power supply, but you can also run it on two optional V-mount batteries when mains power is unavailable. The Radiance ships with a reflector and a carrying case for storage and transport.

The Radiance COB LEDs output an impressive daylight-balanced 23,000 lux - plenty of power for use in large locations. Low power draw and negligible generated heat make it an easy replacement for your hot light.
Color Fidelity
The light's color temperature is a solid 5600K with CRI/TLCI rating of 95.
Flicker-free Dimming
You can you tweak the light intensity from 100 to 10% without flicker, allowing shooting in slow motion or at high frame rates.
Remote Control Options
While you can make adjustments to brightness locally on the fixture, you can also do it remotely from a console via onboard DMX. For another control option, Genaray also includes a wireless remote with a range of 164'.
Dual Power Solutions
The Radiance is ready for worldwide use thanks to its 100 to 240 VAC power supply, but you can also run it on two V-mount batteries in situations where mains current is unavailable.
Intelligent Temperature Control
The whisper-quiet fans protect the light's electronics and make for a very long life for its LEDs.
Cool-Running LEDs
Cool-running COB LED array generates next to no heat, dispelling concerns about placing it close to your subject and allowing you to position it in tight quarters.
Bowens S-Type Accessory Mount
The Bowens front accessory mount makes it not only compatible with Genaray light-shapers, but also with those made by the many manufacturers who employ this popular mount.

    Genaray Radiance Reviews

    Radiance Daylight LED Monolight is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light Storm Killer? I’m going to approach this review like a Tarantino film; I’m going to start from the end and work my way to the beginning.  Simply stated, this may be my new favorite LED light (not including any specialty lights that are in my arsenal). The first thing you notice before you even open up the carrying case (more on that later) is the weight.  For an LED that puts out so much raw power, it is incredibly light.  I have LED panels that are half the size and power of the Radiance that weigh much more.  That’s not saying you can throw this on a cheap light stand and walk away, but you also don’t have to bring out your c-stand to support it. When you finally open the case you’ll see that design esthetics of this lighting system really shine.  It screams professional.  I’m not saying that your equipment has to look a certain way to perform a certain way, but pulling this out on a set will certainly leave the impression that you are serious about your craft.  What you do with all of that “clout” after the initial impression is up to you and your actual skill level ;) The Radiance is solidly built.  I never felt like I had to baby it.  I wouldn’t drop it off the top of a building, but I wasn’t living in constant fear that it would shatter if a mishap occurred on set.  This extra bit of reassurance is key when approaching a purchase like this. Now let’s get to the most important part, functionality.  This LED is BRIGHT!!!  I was honestly shocked at how much power it had.  Not even using it on full power I was able to bathe an entire studio in beautifully clean light.  At 100% power the light is blinding, at 1% it has a gentleness that I wouldn’t expect from a light in this class.  I’m hard pressed to think of a scenario that this light couldn’t handle, especially with the built in Bowens mount which will give you unlimited modification options. Case in point, I threw an Angler 36’ “BoomBox” on this thing with 2 sets of diffusion and the light output can only be described as ethereal and elegant.  It’s powerful enough to be a primary key for a large set up, but can be dialed down to a point that it makes an effective accent light for more intimate situations.  Speaking of intimate situations, I can’t forget to mention that the Radiance is virtually silent. Testing this thing on full power for 2 hours straight I didn’t hear as much as a low hum.  If you came up to me and told me the Radiance was magic, I’d probably believe you.  I’m in love with this thing. The only two issues I have with this light in my testing so far are so minimal that I would feel petty just bringing them up.  But I’m a petty person so lets begin.  Like most Genaray lighting solutions, the Radiance comes with a carrying case, which really is a classy move.  My problem with the case is that the internal padding is a foam cut-out.  It fits the unit and all of the accessories snugly, but I can already tell that the foam is going to chip away after repeated use.  It’s not an issue now, but since I plan on using the Radiance on every shoot from now on (I’m not even joking) I know eventually I’m going to have to invest in another storage/transport option. My second issue is the digital remote. Even though it is a massive upgrade from the wireless remote systems Genaray has implemented in the past, the touch screen seems delicate and I was afraid that I would break it with my massive sausage fingers. This is actually more my issue than the remotes, but it is something to be aware of.  Like I said before, I’m petty. All and all this is a brilliantly designed and executed piece of gear.  I’ve used the Aputure Light Storm on shoots before and was in awe of it.  The Genaray Radiance impresses me more than that, so that’s saying something.  If you are looking for “One light to rule them all” this is the light you need to have in your kit.  2019 is knocking on your door, it’s time to step your game up. *Standing Ovation, High Five* [I received this product in exchange for my honest review.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly Quiet and Powerful I recently used this LED to light a location for an event space. Its a super powerful device and very versatile. The quality of the light is consistent with Genarays standards and most importantly for me -- the light is impressively quiet. It also helps to control the light at a distance with the wireless controls. Its a thoughtfully designed unit all around. Im very happy with it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very nice light but with a high hidden cost This light is brighter than the Aputure 300D and is way less complicated to set up, but Im giving it one less star for requiring the use of 15a V Mount batteries which are very expensive and very rare. The Aputure 300D requires 12a batteries which are way more plentiful and much much cheaper. Why a 300 watt light needs less amperage than a 230 watt light is a mystery to me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not that impressed. I bought a Jinbei EF-200 1 day before I ordered the Generay I bought at BH. I don’t know why BH doesn’t carry Jinbei products. btw...There is no perfect LED color on CRI. Even at 97. The Generay is a tiny microscopic measure bit toward magenta and the Jinbei is the same tiny bit towards green. Both look good enough as far as color CRI. You can mix these two and the difference in color temperature is negligible. More about Jinbei vs Generay: Jinbei EF-200: PROS - HALF of the price of the Generay Radiance - 25% more powerful than the Generay, - 32 watts less power consumption at 100% - NO BALLAST to carry around. CONS: - in the box, only comes with the light, cup protector and a power cord. - Fan noise is low but not acceptable to quiet rooms. PERFECT LIGHT, fan semi quiet. There is a way of taking care of fan noise with these units but I’m not going to advertise here how to do it because I don’t want electronics illiterate customers to temper with these lights. Generay PROS: - comes with case, reflectors and remote. The Jinbei only comes with the light and the power cord. - product is beautiful including the ballast which has a beautiful blue panel and touchscreen. Generay: CONS: - 1/2 stop weaker than the Jinbei - twice the price of Jinbei - a ballast to carry - wireless remote doesn’t have a power / sleep option. Only up and down intensity. Consumes more power and provides less light output than the Jinbei. If I replace the fan on the Jinbei, this light output will beat the Aputure 300D and the Generay while having a SILENT FAN. The Generay has a quitter fan but less power output and consumes more electricity. CONCLUSION: -Fan noise: Generay wins - light output: Jinbei ED-200 wins. - price: Jinbei wins CRI: as good as it can get for a LED, both good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Price of this item changes like crazy Price of this item changes like crazy. Everyday it’s a different price... Great light, very happy with it. It’s 1 FULL STOP brighter than the Aputure 300D. That alone should do.

    What's the range of run times at full power ...

    What's the range of run times at full power depending on battery size at full power? Could I get at least 75 minutes with two 190Wh batteries?
    Asked by: Benton
    The Genaray Radiance is 230w LED. With two 190wh batteries you will bet about an hour and a half.
