The Genaray Contender CD-U LED Focusing Spot Light is a compact, daylight-balanced light fixture that features dense-matrix LEDs with an output of 5400 lux and a CRI greater than 95. Featuring an adjustable light beam, the Contender offers 25 to 55° beam focusing. It's also dimmable from 100 to 10% brightness. An LCD screen displays your current settings.

The provided tungsten filter converts the output to 3200K and an included filter holder enables using your choice of diffusion or gels with the fixture. The Contender ships with a ball head mount and a carrying case.

The rear control module of the Contender CD-U is not compatible with the previous version (CD) of the light and cannot be used.

Modular Design

A removable module holds two L-series batteries and is easy to attach. The fixture requires two L-series batteries to generate the necessary voltage to function.

Adjustable Beam Angle

The adjustable focus mechanism provides a beam angle from a 25° spot to a 55° flood. This makes it ideal for faces as well as backgrounds.

Flicker-Free

The Contender's LED array emits a constant flicker-free beam that's perfect for shooting video in slow motion. It eliminates the strobing effect commonly seen in videos that are shot without flicker-free lights.

question

The reviews for Genaray's Contender Daylight version say that fan noise is an issue. However, the Q&A section of the Bi-color version says there is no fan in the Contender lineup. Can anyone confirm which description/answer is correct? Fan noise from 3 of these in a studio will drive our audio guy nuts. Thanks!
Asked by: Bill M.
My daylight version has a fan-like noise and i can feel air blowing off of it when turned on. So, without proving it by taking it apart, i can still fairly safely say it has a fan. I would not have bought this because of it if I had realized it in time to return. Genaray should've noted fan noise in description. It's not good for interviews or anything quiet.

question

Are these instant-on lights? Other genaray lights I have take 2 seconds to light up after power is switched on.
Asked by: Phil C.
While the Genaray Contender LED Focusing Spot Light is not an instant-on light and does not instantaneously illuminate, the illumination time should be faster than 2 seconds.

question

What would the effective distance of this light be? Could it be used to light a speaker at a conference from about 20 metres away?
Asked by: doug h.
It is a powerful light for its size, but I highly doubt it would give you enough power to light a person from that distance if its the only light you are relying on. I typically use it as a hair light or spot light on a background.

question

How fuzzy is the edge of the spot when focused down to the minimum diameter?
Asked by: Brian
In spot mode, the Genaray Contender LED Focusing Spot Light with Battery Module Kit (Daylight) has a rapid but feathered edge to the light. If you watch the video on our webpage, they show the transition of the light from spot to flood against a wall starting around the 1:18 mark on the video.
