  • 1Description

The kit includes two of the 5600K lights, CRI of 95 and TLCI of 98.3.

Two, filled, 15-pound sandbags are provided to stabilize the rig.

  • 2 x Genaray 36" Soft Strip LED Light

    Offering 256 bright LEDs with a soft wrap-around quality thanks to its long, narrow form factor, the 36" long Soft Strip LED Light from Genaray is a versatile fixture with features 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. Light intensity is conveniently variable from 10 to 100% without flicker, 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 977 lux at 3.3' while consuming just 56W of power, ensuring a fast return on investment.

    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. It 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 hairlight.

    The SSL-36 has a beam angle coverage of 60 degrees which can be modified and controlled by its 2-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 that allows fine-tuning of the light's positioning.
    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 10 to 100% dimming to adjust the output without moving the fixture back and forth.
    Dead Quiet Operation
    The light's fanless convection cooling is a valuable asset in sound-sensitive environments.

Genaray Soft Strip Reviews

Key and Fill Lighting 36" Soft Strip 2-Light Standard Kit with Light Stands is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
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 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 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 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Im Impressed Ive been using the lights for about two months now. Ive held off on reviewing them because I wanted to get a good feel for them first. I now feel confident saying that Im happy with my purchase. I would give them five stars if not for a few areas where I feel like they could improve, which Ill go into below. I am a professional videographer, doing mostly marketing work for local tv stations. Long story short, I needed to build my departments video equipment from the ground up and needed something good, versatile, and affordable. I couldnt spend thousands on one kinoflo but Ive also used cheap LED kits and been underwhelmed with them. I needed something solidly in the middle. Here are some of my observations in no particular order: PROS: 1. Build quality - pretty solid. I dont feel like its going to fall apart or suddenly break. I dont know how to quantify this. It just feels like a good build. 2. Weight - The specs say 6.4 lb / 2.90 kg. Its hard to know what that means until you pick it up. Im not a big guy and I have no problem picking it up to mount it on a C-stand. That said, I highly recommend C-stands for these lights or at least a heavier duty stand. I would not feel comfortable at all having this on some of those cheaper, fold-up stands. C-stands and sandbags are your friends. Also, I feel confident that if I needed to do light someone while they walked, I could hold it up overhead and walk with them for a take (30 seconds or so) without killing my arms. The bigger challenge there would be how to manage the battery back, which is separate from the fixture itself. 3. Light Output- Nice and soft. Decently bright. Youre not going to blind anyone and in outdoor situations, youd need multiple to make a noticeable difference, but theyre plenty bright enough for indoor settings. I bought four of them to light four-person teams and its perfect. Maybe I could use one more for more backlight, but hey, its fine. For how I use them, mostly lighting on-air talent in a controlled environment, they work really well. 4. Lollipop mount - Im a big fan. It connects solidly and provides a large range of motion. 5. Battery life - Maybe this says more about the batteries than the light, but Im using them with the recommended Dracast V-Mount Batteries. Ive shot for several hours on one battery and have yet to have one die on me. I cant say how long they last but its been enough for me so far. 6. Set up - Fairly easy and quick. These are going to take a little more time to set up than others, but theyve been worth it to me. I think it took me 20 minutes to set up four of them by myself. So like 5 minutes per light? Ok, so CONS. 1. The connectors - Theyre all plastic and feel a little cheap compared to the rest of the fixture. I would have loved this to be a higher-quality, metal connector. That said, Ive had zero issues with them. Im just concerned about longevity. 2. The battery pack - Like I said, the battery pack is a separate piece that connects to the fixture via a cord. This pack has a *plastic* loop which allows you to hang it on your stand. I dont know what I think about this. I wish there was at least an option to connect the battery directly to the fixture like other LID lights. 3. Color Temperature - Daylight balanced. Not bi-color. I knew this before purchasing so it wasnt a surprise. I bought some CTO gels, some clips and boom, tungsten. Its a couple extra minutes of set up and an added expense, but not being bi-color helps keep the price down, Im sure. So it probably balances out. I guess thats it. I would give it 5 stars if it werent for those little issues. Overall, I really like these lights. Theyve elevated the quality of my video work and Ive gotten a lot of compliments on how everyone looks on camera.
