Genaray SSL-36B Soft Strip Bi-Color LED Light (4 x 36")

Offering a soft wrap-around quality thanks to its long, narrow form factor and 512 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 a continuously adjustable bi-color temperature range from 3200k to 5600K, with a high CRI/TLCI rating of 95.6/98, an indicator of precise color rendering. The SSL-36B features an all-digital dimmer for single digit adjustment control throughout the dimming range from 100% all the way down to 0%. Other dimmers without this functionality can exhibit abrupt falloff below 10%, greatly limiting their dynamic range.

The SSL-36B 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 977 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-36B 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-36B has a beam angle coverage of 110 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 hard carrying case is included to store and transport the light.

Horizontal or Vertical Orientation

The long, thin form factor gives a wrap-around quality when used horizontally. Used vertically, it's well-suited for a sidelight or for lighting objects and casting a long, elegant reflection.

2-Way Barndoors

This simple but effective modifier allows you to swing one or more leaves into the light's beam for selective lighting of your subject.

Lollipop Mount

The mount incorporates a ball head attachment with ratchet handle that provides precise fine-tuning and adjustment of the light's position. Using it gives you the option to quickly change the light's orientation from horizontal to vertical or to any position within the ball head's 360° adjustable range.

AC or Optional Battery Power

The SSL-36B ships with a multi-voltage 100-240 VAC power supply but it can also run on V-Mount batteries when mains power is unavailable.

Even Illumination

The SSL-36B provides even illumination along its 36"-inch length, without noticeable hot spots. When shooting full-length portraits or group shots, this fixture bathes your subjects in soft and diffuse wraparound light without multiple shadows.

Cool Running

The SSL-36B runs barely warm to the touch allowing you to work close to your subject without discomfort and without losing time waiting for the fixture to cool down.

Dimming

The SSL-36B features an all-digital dimmer for single digit adjustment control throughout the dimming range from 100% all the way down to 0%. Other dimmers without this functionality can exhibit abrupt falloff below 10%, greatly limiting their dynamic range.

Quiet Operation

The light's fanless convection cooling is a valuable asset in sound-sensitive environments.

Wireless Operation

The SSL-36B's control box features and integrated wireless transmitter and receiver, allowing it to control multiple compatible lights. It features 4-channel operation and includes a removable antenna. I can also be controlled remotely using the separately available SSL-RC remote control unit.

Genaray Soft Strip Bi-Color Reviews

Nice light

I like this light it works good but the AC plug in is right over the switch and it's very hard to turn on and off, very poor design, but still a nice light

Solid build; easy to position & control

This light has stepped in to become my new fill light for interviews and other similar lighting setups when I'm working close to a subject. There are a few things I particularly like about it: It's silent (no fan), the brightness goes all the way down to 1% for total control, the ballhead connection to the light stand is metal and seems very solid, and of course it's nice to have the barndoors, which are solid too. It's easy to rotate the light from vertical to horizontal for various uses. Controls are also easy to use, light quality is diffuse and good at different color temperatures, and it comes with a nice padded case. Good light. No complaints.

Fantastic, bright, soft light.

This is my third light from this family of lights by Genaray. They're fantastic. I have the 50" Bi-color version, the 8x36" Bi-color version and now this smaller "mini" version. I love this smaller version and it is such a perfect complement to the other 2, but it is also great on its own. It gives off a consistent soft light and will be useful in many different situations. To give a good example of the amount of light this provides and its "softness", I uploaded a picture of it lighting a green screen. You can really see the consistency of the spread of light and how bright it is. I plan on using this a lot as a backlight. It provides enough light to be a key light in most situations or fill light, but I love the idea of it as a backlight. The small size and weight make it easy to attach to an arm. Or, instead of having it directly behind the subject, it can be placed just off center, behind a subject as a kicker light. The dimmer is smooth and responsive, which is nice when you want to dial in the intensity just right. Having the bi-color option makes this light very versatile and adaptive to the ambient light already in the room. I also have the Genaray SSL-RC wireless remote control for this family of lights, so adjusting the color temperature and dimming capability from the remote is very handy. I highly recommend this accessory as it makes things really easy. I'm a big fan of the lollipop mount of this light. It attaches securely and allows you to use the light vertically or horizontally which is fantastic. The lollipop mount also has 2 places to mount on a stand (or lighting grid). Either from the bottom or the side, again adding to the flexibility when positioning the light, because now you can light straight down which is perfect for a soft overhead light on tabletop shoots, or whatever. The light has an aluminum housing and the build quality is nice and solid. Barn doors are made of metal and hold their position very well. This light will run on ac power or on two of the Sony NP-F type batteries, again making the light very versatile. I have a bunch of those batteries already, and they are very affordable, so I love that. Another thing I really love about this light is it comes with its own well-made and padded case. Being able to safely store a light and its accessories will add years to any light. This prevents any wear and tear or damage when going on location which is important and will save you money in the long run. I'm very impressed with this family of lights from Genaray and love this smaller version. I can see me using it all the time. [I have received this product in exchange for my honest review]

The perfect addition to the Genaray SSL Family

By Art Video
Rated 5 out of 5

I have almost the entire line of Genaray SSL series, and I have been using the SSL-50 Daylight (my first one) for as long as 2 years for productions of Corporate interviews, B roll, background accents and occasionally for music video, in addition to the SSL-836B (8X36) and the SSL-50B. I'm going to utilize the SSL-MiniB mostly for hair light, which is perfect. It gives a soft and pleasant light when I don't want hard light for hair. The SSL Mini-B size provides exactly what I want for that purpose since the size and length is right, plus the barn doors help me control the light exactly where I want it to illuminate. You can certainly use the SSL-MiniB as a keylight if that's the only one you have available. It will provide a soft and pleasant light. For being a smaller and yet soft light, as a key light interview, if you bring it as close as possible to the subject, for more artistic lighting control, instead of the usual big light source softbox, it can actually provide an interesting look, with specific areas of face or body that you want lit, and even some spots for a different mood and look with the barn doors, you can even accentuate that effect further, yet, with a soft light. You can't see the LEDs, thanks to its heavy diffuser plate. I really like the mini version of the SSL series. It's just what was missing! It's very portable, fast to setup as it doesn't require any ballast. Simply Install the two required (not included) Sony NPF batteries, and turn it on. For being so lightweight, about 3 lbs, it is the simplest loads you could have on a Boom. The lollipop mount allows you to aim the light at any position, vertical, horizontal or angled. Very pleased. If you'd like more information about the Genaray SSL-MiniB, I made a review on Youtube specifically for it.

Awesome Lighting Kit for the price!

C-Stands are great. I just wished it included the extension arm. Saddle sand bags are good enough. Genaray BiColor LED lights are very good. I wished they could come with a bit more professional finishing -- you can tell they aren't like KinoFlo or something like that. But they work great, aren't that heavy. And the light is VERY GOOD!

During a visit at B&H in 2019, staff were showcasing this set-up on site. It intrigued me for a long time. Fast forward to 2020, I pulled the trigger and purchased this set-up, knowing the possibility to use it was nil to none in the short term. - Well, I finally opened a small studio in 2021 and couldn't wait to use this set-up. I was not disappointed. Easy to set up with C-Stands. Manually set-up lighting parameters for a practice session and was pleased and impressed. However, one of the lights Dimmer Control Box with Battery Mount came defective and must be replace as soon as possible. Beyond that, wonderful lights.

I'm considering using two of these for copy work. Is the bicolor version and the 5600 only version different brightnesses. If I'm mostly using the 5600 daylight setting, should I get the bicolor version? Do the extra LEDs increase the brightness at the 5600 level?
Asked by: Michael
For maximum brightness you should get the Daylight version. The Bi color splits the Led's in half so you get only half the output compared to Daylight.
