Offering a soft wrap-around quality thanks to its long, narrow form factor and 400 bright LEDs, the 50" 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 96/98.3, an indicator of precise color rendering. The SSL-50 features an all-digital dimmer for single digit adjustment control throughout the dimming range from 100% all the way down to 1%. Other dimmers without this functionality can exhibit abrupt falloff below 10%, greatly limiting their dynamic range.

The SSL-50 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 1693.6 lux at 3' while consuming just 80W of power, helping you keep the temperature of your set and your operational costs down.

The long strip fixture can be used vertically or horizontally for dramatic results. In vertical orientation, the SSL-50 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-50 has a beam angle coverage of 75 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 hard carrying 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-50 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-50 provides even illumination along its 50"-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-50 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.

Dimming

The SSL-50 features an all-digital dimmer for single digit adjustment control throughout the dimming range from 100% all the way down to 1%. Other dimmers without this functionality can exhibit abrupt falloff below 10%, greatly limiting their dynamic range.

Quiet Operation

The light's fanless convection cooling is a valuable asset in sound-sensitive environments.

Wireless Operation

The SSL-50's control box features and integrated wireless transmitter and receiver, allowing it to control multiple compatible lights. It features 4-channel operation and includes a removable antenna. I can also be controlled remotely using the separately available SSL-RC remote control unit.

Genaray Soft Strip Daylight Reviews

Perfect Studio Lighting

By Russell
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-07-01

I just added my second to my overhead rail system replacing 2 of the SSL-36 4x36 lights. They have moved to another location. You should know that one 8 panel outputs 40% more lux than two 4 panels. The two 4 panels are now repositioned to the clam shell configuration demonstrated in the Genaray setup video. They are a great new configuration for me, opening up the area under the eyebows, nose and chin. I love the image. Strip lighting gives shadowless lighting on infomercials and tutorials. It makes studio lighting effortless. And is a vast improvement for me over mounting a bank of rectangular panels. Now that I have two, I thought I could easily control the intensity of both with a single SSL-RC wireless remote. I does tune to 4 different channels as does the SSL-836. However, when you change channels, the last setting you used gets transmitted to the new channel. For example, setting channel A to 50% gets transmitted to channel B when you switch the controller to it and engage. So, if you need individual control over multiple lamps, you will need to buy a separate SSL-RC for each and leave each tuned to a different channel. For me use in a studio, one works because if I need to dim lighting I will dim all the lamps equally and for this a single SSL-RC works perfectly. The remote is not a substitute for a DMX panel, but it does give me the control I need for ceiling mounted lighting.

Great Lights for Green Screen Cyc

We bought 8 of these for our green screen cyc and really like them! The construction quality is on par with more expensive brands. The quality of the light is great and the barn doors have a solid build quality to them. I like the quality of these lights so much, the even and clean dimming that I use them now to also record my podcast with, choosing this as a quick and easy alternative over our more expensive lite panels and Apetures we also have.

Good quality

Very pleased with the quality of these lights and the c stands as well. The barn doors and the sand bags are all excellent and worth the money.

Worth the C stands alone.

I was looking for c stands that are out of stock at the moment so I purchased this handy dandy strip lighting duo. I was pleasantly surprised at how well they are built and the quality of the lighting the produce. The C stands are serious and not toys so Im a happy camper.

SSL-50 Strip Light

By Charles
Rated 5 out of 5

I photograph a lot of artist's paintings for them with an intended quality commensurate with high-resolution giclee printing. I have had a need for improved lighting for years, having in the past used tungsten hot-lights, multiple banks of speedlights, and occasionally some fluorescent lights. Color rendition with those was best with the multiple speedlight banks, but uniformity was hard to achieve. These Genaray strip lights with their barn door modifiers have answered my quest. I have tested them on some difficult pieces of artwork, with a spectrophotometer, with reference cards, and with real artwork. The results so far are beautiful. The light is soft, confined to the artwork, smooth and uniform across the 4-to-5 foot dimension of the work, and color rendition has been spot on. The advertised color temperature and CRI index have tested correct. I work in a very confined small studio, and although these lights are reasonably large, they fit in this space very well. The engineering of the lights, the power supplies, and the mounting adapters provides a very flexible and simple setup. Controlling the intensity of the light is direct, simple, and in very precise steps. The key requirement for copying artwork, besides the optical properties of the light, is the profile of the light fixture. A tall but narrow source is highly desirable, and these fit the bill.

Genaray SSL-36 Soft Strip

I bought this light to use as a wide back/hair light and it has worked very well. Featuring Sturdy construction with usable barn doors that do the job, this light makes getting excellent back lighting easy. A great feature is the dimmer on the power supply rather than on the light itself. Very happy with this purchase. A good value!

Great light with a great value

I think we have bought close to 10 of these by this point. It's a great light and we originally planned on using to light a cyc but we now bring them to interviews and use them as part of the kit. Typically as a hair light.

I own (3) of these that I use for a multitude of reasons; primarily for product photography. I find the light nice and diffuse and the easy changeable settings are a huge plus. Highly recommend!

The closer a light is to the background the faster and more obvious the fall off is. These can work, but you need at some space between the light and the background to allow for the fall of curve to flatten.
