B&H put together this Hex Lighting 36" Soft Strip 6-Light Pro Kit with C-Stands to offer image makers a way to create a signature look with the help of this unique source. The kit includes six 36" Soft Strip LED Lights that are 5600K and have a CRI of 95 and a TLCI of 98.3. Each strip light has an AC adapter and a dimmer control box with a V-mount battery plate. There are three 10.75' and one 6' C-stands with removable turtle bases included for four of the lights. The other two lights can be clamped nearly anywhere with the kit's End-Jaw Vise Grips. Alternatively, you can mount one of the lights on the provided 7.2' boom by using the kit's 5/8" to 1-1/8" adapter, allowing you to mount a light directly onto a separate turtle base for low angle lighting. Seven, filled, saddle-type, 15-pound sandbags are included to stabilize the stands with the fixtures.
Genaray SSL-36 Soft Strip Daylight LED Light (4 x 36")
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 strip fixture can be used vertically or horizontally for dramatic results. 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 carrying case is included to store and transport the light.
