The Powerhouse Daylight LED Monolight from Genaray is a powerful continuous light source with a host of features that make it a valuable fixture for image-makers in the studio. While the monolight consumes just 330W of power it outputs many times that number - 63,000 lux - enough to stand up to the demands of softboxes, umbrellas and other modifiers. The light has a solid 5600K color temperature - ideal for a wide variety of uses, while its high CRI/TLCI rating of 95 indicates accuracy in the rendering color minimizing post-production color correction.

The Powerhouse is dimmable from 100 to 0% in 10% increments, and while you can make adjustments in light intensity on the fixture, you can also make them remotely at distances up to 300' thanks to an integrated 2.4 GHz receiver and the included wireless remote control. The wireless system has 16 channels to avoid interference with other shooters and 5 distinct groups to handle multiple lighting setups. The Powerhouse has a 5/8" receiver for industry standard light stands, and a Bowens front accessory mount for the included 7" reflector or for light-shapers from the many manufacturers that use this popular mount. As a further sign of versatility, the Powerhouse is ready for worldwide use thanks to the included 100 to 240 VAC adapter.

Impressive Power - 63,000 lux

While the monolight consumes just 330W of power it outputs many times that number: a whopping 63,000 lux - enough to stand up to the demands of softboxes, umbrellas, and other modifiers or for long throw work lighting distant subjects

Daylight Color Temperature

The Daylight Color Temperature of 5600K is a good match for existing light and is compatible with a wide variety of subjects and uses

Color Rendering

CRI/TLCI ratings of 95/95 are indicators of accuracy in color rendering minimizing post-production color correction

Wireless Remote Control

Built-in receiver and included wireless remote control system has 16 channels and five groups for light intensity adjustments at distances up to 300'

COB LED Array

Chip-on-board (COB) technology not only allows high power from a small array, but eliminates multiple shadows that are a problem for traditional LEDs

Fan Cooling

The fan may be quiet enough to be used on the set. Fan-cooling allows the Powerhouse to run barely warm to touch, resulting in quicker packing and moving times, lower studio temperatures and electrical bills, and greater comfort for the talent.

Built-in Handle

The monolight's built-in handle makes set up and break down fast and easy

Umbrella Compatible

The included 7" reflector has a convenient umbrella pass-through

Bowens Mount

The Bowens-Type front accessory mount allows you to add accessories such as reflectors, softboxes, and snoots made by the many manufacturers that use the popular Bowens mount

I had in my wish list the Apurture 300A but came across this Genaray and have to tell that it has the power I need; Plus are that its clean quiet enough versatile light; head its a bit bigger that Apurture and light construction bit id you treat it with care should have a lightfor many years; like I said its not super quiet but Lavalier or decent boom mic on a sit down interview will defined not catch the head and power supply whispering. Doesn’t come with case; so I got a 23” long tools box from Lowes ($35) and with some padding fits perfect and well protected for transportation in my van to locations. Git my couple lights at the weekly special from BH. Can’t beat the bargain of 330 led watts for that price.

It is super quiet and its output is almost a 2 k of light . It only goes down to 10 percent but if you need a 2k with out the 16 amps of draw this thing is the cheapest, brightest Led I could find.

Wish it has a battery adapter but a great light. Compared to a 300d it's a half-stop brighter.

INCREDIBLE PERFORMANCE, NO FLICKER, LOW NOISE

By Art Video
Rated 5 out of 5

First impression I had upon unboxing this light, was the design of the light, the silver/black finish with a yellow round LED cell that adds a nice accent to the look. Also, the 5 pin light cable that connects to the ballast is nice, flexible and extremely easy to handle especially when putting it away, bending very easily, to a nice figure 8 shape, feels good in the hands. I didn’t find this light heavy. It’s a beefy one but it’s weight is very light for what it is and what it gives you... This light instantly has become my favorite one. Why? Besides the POWER and BRIGHTNESS, the Powerhouse’s ballast is tiny and SUPER LIGHT weight!! You’ll love setting up this light! It’s that simple... AC cable to ballast, then plug in the 5 pin cable to the back of the light and you’re DONE. The ballast can be installed right on the light stand! This is VERY important to me, this light has a ballast, but its almost the same convenience using a light that doesnt have one (the straight to the outlet plug type) .  I can easily move the Powerhouse light and ballast, all attached in 1 stand. No cumbersome cabling and ballast on the floor to deal with. That’s a MAJOR PLUS for me as I really dont like ballasts on the floor.   I do not recommend you using a cheap light stand given the size, price and weight of this unit. A C Stand or any other heavy duty stand recommended. search at BH for heavy Duty Light Stand and an array of options will appear. To mount very large or HEAVY softboxes, and parabolic Octagons, not only for this light but for ANY Monolight,  I also recommend adding a counter weight on the back, thus relieving any stress you might put on the yoke and the stand (just like you’d do on a Boom mic or a crane).   If you already own a Genaray Radiance, (I do) the LED color cast are identical on both lights. The perfect combination using it for main light of backlight.   Now... the stuff you all want to know... FAN NOISE: (...there isnt ) if you use a decent microphone. The Powerhouse has 3 fans and the ballast another 2. Noisy??? Nope! When you stare at the product at 1 foot, yes, you’ll hear all the fans. But I tested it using a professional Sony UWP-D and / or super cardioid mic on a Boom.  I recommend using the boom option for ALL lights that have a fan. The fan sound is NOT captured by the mic if you know what you’re doing. For interviews, keep the mic as close as possible to the source (off frame) whatever that source is, your mouth or anything that is emitting the sound you want to capture on video and your audio will be clean and fan noise out. The 3 fans on the light’s body emit an softly audible sound and hey are as quiet as it can be given a light of this size and POWER.  There is no such thing as a silent light of this size. The 2 little fans on the ballast are a bit noisy but again, nothing will be heard on your recordings. My studio is dead quiet and I don’t hear the fans on my recordings as close as 2 feet from it with the microphone CLOSE to me. I made a mega review, 50 minute long video online, everything you can possibly want to know about it is there.   HEAT. None. 1 hour running the light, it’s ice cold. With a softbox it gets no warmer than your body temp. Light spread: softbox: it fills satisfactory and evenly. The reflector it comes with, is very reflective giving you a LOT of punch output on the light beam, regardless of being a wide 120 degree angle.   What I don’t like about the unit: (very minor things, NOT pertaining to the light itself or its performance) 1- remote control does not sync with the light. this “problem” is common on most LEDs that feature a remote. The green LCD display on the remote goes out as early as 5 seconds. I wish I could make it light up longer especially if I’m in the dark.   2- Comes shipped with no case. I spent 8 hours looking for a case that suits my needs. Yes, there are cases at BH and other sources that will fit the Powerhouse... However...since I own a Genaray Radiance and it DOES come with a case, I decided to place the Powerhouse on top, ten I immediately saw that it would fit with a FEW modifications by cutting the foam inside. now I have the Radiance and the Powerhouse on IDENTICAL cases.  What I like about that case is that it can be placed FLAT on the ground and very easily remove the light, has a ore cut space for the reflector, ballast and cables, all in a slim case that will fit anywhere in you car, closer or studio shelves. And it extremely lightweight case. Not the kind of protection that you would check this in on a flight but it’s plenty of protection for transporting normally. The case costs between $85 to$100. Genaray does not sell this case normally. You have to call and order it. BH should start caring this case for sale. You can’t find another better case for it. I like a case that I can place it flat on the floor and the Radiance case does what I want, plus theres even a pre-cut to size hole in there for storing the reflector, remote, cables, all isolated.   I definitely recommend this light and you cannot go wrong with this one.  - FLICKER FREE, even at 120FPS slow motion using a Canon 1DX        Mark II and a C 100Mark II. No worries there... - slick design and look - lightweight - powerful - tiny ballast, no clutter - Bowen’s Mount. Anything can be mounted on this thing.   [i have received this light in exchange for my honest review] and I wouldnt hesitate to put another one in the shopping cart.

Perfect for Laowa Probe Lens

By Jaime
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2020-12-17

This makes filming with the Laowa 24mm f14 probe lens a breeze! I am able to get to around ISO 400 shooting at 24 frames and can shoot at 120 frames if needed with a higher ISO no problemo with Sony. Really like this light. Sure, you can't increase the output in small increments, but really I only bought this for a lot of light. I have a few Aputure and Godox lights with less power, so this is really just for when I need a ton of light. It holds a huge soft box no problem and isn't as heavy as one would think by looking at it. The power supply is also pretty light and even has a handy strap to mount it to a c stand. Can't go wrong with this light in my honest opinion. The price was also too good to beat.

How do those LED mono lights perform with a large (50 inch long) softbox for portrait photography. Given that softboxes work best the the protruding flash tube. Those LED lights have a kind of flat light 'bulb' ? Does that limit the spread of the light in a softbox ?
Asked by: Jacob R
Led lights can be a bit more directional as the light leaves the fixture but strip softboxes are still effective with them. The light bounces off the first layer of diffusion and spreads/scatters out to hit the sides of the softbox before leaving the front of the softbox evenly diffused.

Which fan is louder? The fan in the fixture or the fan in the ballast?
Asked by: NICHOLAS
There are dual small fans in the ballast so that they can run slowly and therefore quietly. The fan in the fixture is also especially quiet. They're all quiet and I wouldn't expect any of them to affect your audio. The relative noise level (again, these are super quiet) of the two will depend on the placement of each in relation to that of your microphone. By default, the one closer to your mic is likely to be louder -- but again, super quiet.
