The PortaBright Bi-Color LED Battery-Powered Monolight from Genaray is a versatile light source with color temperature that's variable from 3200 to 6500K to blend effortlessly with ambient light on location, with other fixtures, or just for creative expression. This powerful bi-color light outputs plenty of light—almost 12,000 lux at 3 feet. The light also features 0 to 100% flicker-free dimming in 10% increments. But regardless of which power level you've chosen, color rendition demonstrates superior accuracy as indicated by its high CRI/TLCI ratings of 97.3 and 98 at 3200K. And with its lightweight and compact form factor, you can pack the PortaBright into its carry case and sling it over your shoulder to carry it to your next location.
One of PortaBright's outstanding benefits is its power options. The light runs on a removable lithium-ion battery when in the field or when AC power is unavailable. For worldwide use, it will also run on its included 100-240 VAC adapter. Extra Genaray MONOBATT batteries will provide the juice to keep you going on extra-long shoots. The light has a wide beam spread of 120 degrees that can be narrowed to 45 degrees with the included reflector, and it has a Bowens front accessory mount that not only accepts Genaray modifiers, but also those of the many manufacturers that employ this popular mount. The light's 5/8" receiver also has an umbrella receptacle for further modifier compatibility. Another advantage is the PortaBright's powerful COB LED that provides soft, circular edges, with the bonus of round, natural-looking catchlights reflected in the eyes of your subjects. A well-known benefit of using LEDs is their very low, barely warm-to-the touch heat. The PortaBright draws just 100W, allowing close-up shooting while keeping your subject cool and comfortable.
In addition to the numerous benefits mentioned above, the PortaBright also provides control options. The fixture has a built-in 16-channel, 5-group receiver, and while you can adjust power levels locally on the fixture, with the separate purchase of a remote transmitter you can also make them wirelessly at distances up to 100'—a very valuable asset when lights are hung overhead or mounted in out-of-the-way places.
