The Spectro LED Essential 500IIB Bi-Color LED Light by Genaray is a 504 LED panel with color temperature that's variable from tungsten-balanced 3200K to daylight-balanced 5600K or anywhere in between. Instead applying filters, you can match other light sources, ambient light conditions, or just use color creatively with a simple twist of a knob. The fixture's high CRI/TLCI ratings of 96 are indicators of impressive accuracy in color rendering. Light intensity is adjustable too, from 0 to 100% without flicker, allowing shooting at high frame rates for slow motion.

The Spectro LED Essential 500IIB offers a 60° flood beam spread for adequate coverage with enough punch for long-throw work. The 13.6 x 9.25 x 2.8" panel weighs just 2.8 lb, and with its slim profile it can be placed in areas that traditional fixtures just can't go. Another benefit of using LEDs is low power draw, and although the 500IIB consumes just 40W of power, it outputs many times that number, providing impressive output for your work. For a larger array with more power Genaray has included cold shoe mounts to allow you to stack up to 3 units for triple the power.

Yet another example of the light's versatility is its power options. The 500IIB is ready for worldwide use thanks to the included 100 to 240 VAC adapter, but the fixture also has two ports that accept separately-purchased NP-F-type batteries for situations where mains power is unavailable.

Adjustable Color Temperature with High CRI/TLCI

Color temperature is adjustable from 3200K tungsten to daylight-balanced 5600K to blend seamlessly with ambient light, match other fixtures, or to spark creative expression. The SP-E-500IIB's high CRI/TLCI ratings are indicators of accuracy in color rendering.

Flicker-Free Variable Light Intensity

The Spectro LED is dimmable from 0 to 100% without filters or color shift. The light is also flicker-free allowing shooting at high frame rates for slow motion.

AC or Battery Power Options

The fixture is ready for worldwide use via the included 100 to 240VAC adapter, but the SP-E-500IIB has two ports that accept separately-purchased NP-F-type batteries when mains power is unavailable.

Cool Operation

The Spectro LED runs with barely perceptible warmth, so you can move the light close to your subjects without causing them discomfort.

Mounting and Stacking Options

The light has an industry-standard 5/8" receiver for stand-mounting as well as 1/4"-20 top and bottom taps, while the pre-installed yoke is removable to allow the fixture to be vertically or horizontally stand-mounted. You can also stack up to three units to create a large array using the included cold foot mounts.

Does the output get dimmer when color temperature approaches both extremes (3200k for tungsten, 5600k for daylight)? I know for 1st generation bicolor was remarkably dimmer at daylight than the daylight only was, but maybe its just how it is.

The battery life will depend on the size of the batteries being used. For example, using two of the Watson NP-F770 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 4400mAh), BH # WANPF770 would give you roughly1.5-2 hours of run time at full power.
