With its familiar, user-friendly form factor, the Endeavor ML-33K Daylight LED Monolight from Genaray is a versatile and highly powerful light source that boasts an impressive 33,000 lux output at 3 feet that will bathe your subjects in bright daylight-balanced light. The COB LED emits its beam from a compact area for a traditional single-shadow light, and it provides soft, circular edges with the bonus of round, natural-looking catchlights and reflections. Great for video shoots, the Endeavor emits a flicker-free beam that eliminates unwanted strobing effects when shooting at high frame rates for slow-motion video or high-speed imaging. The Endeavor's 5600K color balance blends seamlessly with ambient light on location or with other daylight fixtures, and its extremely high CRI/TLCI ratings of 97.5 and 98.5 are your assurance of superior performance and accuracy in color reproduction. Genaray has also considered locations dominated by tungsten lights by including an amber conversion filter. The light also features 0 to 100% flicker-free dimming in 10-degree increments, opening the door to high-speed shooting for slow-motion applications, while maintaining its high CRI/TLCI ratings no matter the chosen power level.
One of the Endeavor's outstanding benefits is its power options. It features multi-voltage operation from 90-240 VAC worldwide use, and for shooting in locations where AC power is unavailable, separate purchase of Genaray's BA-VMOUNT-E adapter will allow you to run the light on two V-mount batteries. The light has a wide beam spread of 120 degrees for ample coverage, but since it employs the widely used Bowens front accessory mount, Genaray and manufacturers' modifiers can be used to shape and control the Endeavor's output. For further light-shaper compatibility, the light's 5/8" receiver has a channel for optional umbrellas. A well-known benefit of using LEDs is their very low generated heat. The Endeavor draws just 150W and employs a thermostatically controlled fan and built-in heat sync ports that regulate the internal temperature, allowing for close-up shooting without causing the subject discomfort, as well as extending the LED life to 50,000 hours.
In addition to all the features above, the Endeavor extends control options. The fixture has a built-in 16-channel, 5-group receiver, and while you can adjust power levels locally on the fixture, you can also make adjustments wirelessly at distances up to 100' with the separate purchase of Genaray's Lightseeker 2.4 GHz remote transmitter—a very valuable asset when lights are hung overhead or mounted in out-of-the-way places.
