B&H put together this Genaray Clamshell Lighting 36" Soft Strip 2-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 two of the 5600K lights that have a CRI of 95 and a TLCI of 98.3 and are 36" in length. Each strip light has a dimmer control box, V-mount battery plate, and two, steel, turtle-base C-stands with removable bases. There is also a 7.2' boom arm for overhead lighting. In addition, there are three, filled, 15-pound sandbags to help stabilize the rig.
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.
