Genaray LED-5300 overview

  • 1Description

The Genaray LED-5300 120 LED Dimmable Compact On-Camera Light is 5600K daylight balanced and delivers a 640 lux brightness at 3 ft distance. The brightness is adjustable by a flicker-free dimmer that also powers the light on and off. A 4300K filter is included for warming the daylight balanced color, and a diffusion filter is included to soften the light output so that your subjects are lit more gently and with less contrast from area to area. The filters interchangeably slide in from the side and lock into place. A button on the bottom releases them.

The light runs on any Sony L-series type battery and on AC power. An NP-F550 L-series battery, a charger, and an AC adapter are included. The AC adapter connects to the light via a dummy battery.

A cold shoe is integrated for mounting to a camera, and inside the shoe is a 1/4" thread for attaching onto stands and rigs. The cold shoe also features a locking ring that tightens the connection to a camera. A thread adapter for mounting on Sony's proprietary AIS shoe mount is also included.

    Genaray LED-5300 reviews

    LED-5300 120 LED Dimmable Compact On-Camera Light is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 62.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Portable Sun I bought this light for my Canon T4i to replace the flash while taking pictures. I prefer steady light to flashes. I took this light out in the pitch black and was able to get great pictures. The light also works great on a tripod for all kinds of shadow effects. It also works really well for macro photography. The only downside is that the battery is not anchored in place very well. If it gets bumped the wrong way it falls out very easily.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Noobie Reivew. I have to say that this light is pretty good! I've used this for interviews that turned out awesome! The one thing I have had trouble with is the dimmer. Sometimes the dimmer will not work or dim very well. Although, I think I may have to push in the wheel (which I do forget to do sometimes). Other than that, this light offers some great functionality, especially with the warming filter! Just remember that this light isn't meant to light an entire room, but the LEDs still make it very powerful. I will have to see if there are other filters they sell- like maybe a CTB or something.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent light for price Very portable, Includes many accessories, carry bag includedVersatile, and be used on hot shoe, tripod or pedestal with a 1/4 - 20 thread.Plastic construction but seems solid. Gives a decent light for the priceNot happy about: Advertised as dimmable from 0 to 100%, but in reality it is off, then click-on at maybe 10% then turn the potentiometer halfway and you get full power. (The variable resistor is not linear) It's very difficult to know how much light you will get just by reading the info and reviews. In fact, I still don't know if my light shines as it should. I think it does.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm sold on the LED-5300 First of all I was impressed with size and weight. It's light and fits securely in the outer flap of my camera bag. The illumination is very good. The specs say 3 ft. but was able to obtain great light at 4 ft. About 5 yrs. ago I spent over $500.00 on a battery vest and light that blinded people when I used it in shooting an interview or performance. The LED-5300 has a dimmer switch that is smooth and an extra filter. It mounts securely on my camera and is perfect light for my line of work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little light This is a nice quality, bright little light. The dimmer is a nice feature, as are the two filters which can lock in (use the release button on the bottom). I like the ability to operate it using either battery or plug. I would buy this again, and might just pick up a second one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful I bought this mostly for photographing very young children and infants. Both me and the child's mother didn't want an instantaneous flash to disturb the child or be harmful, G-d forbid. That said, the child still had to get used to the bright light, but did get used to it eventually. At first I tried the dimming feature to be less disturbing, but found the resulting photographs to be washed out, less contrast, and the color slightly off. Therefore I don't think the dimming feature is very useful. Before I bought it, I thought I would have preferred a light that used disposable AA batteries to make the light always ready, but now I'm happy with the rechargeable battery because it lasts 2.5 - 3 hours on a charge, and recharges in about 4 hours. Also, it's a very popular rechargeable battery, so equivalent batteries are available for a reasonable price, so I can always have a spare fully charged battery on hand. So, since the rechargeables are practical, they're more convenient and less expensive than AA batteries.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lights work great, battery chargers don't work at all I bought two of these. The lights themselves work great, but both battery chargers came dead-on-arrival. On one of them, the green light turned on when I plugged it in, and it changed to red when I put a battery in it, but then the light went off and the battery wouldn't charge. The other charger never even kicked on on the indicator light, and I even left a battery on it for a while to see if it was actually charging and it is not. Luckily, I have the older Vidpro model and the charger works fine, so I can still use these, I just have to make sure I give myself a full day to charge all the batteries one at a time. The battery life of the lights is great, and this would absolutely be a 5-star review if not for the chargers.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful item I use this product with a Nex-7. I like the lite, it is especially useful for fill-in and then using the Anti-Motion Blur mode on the camera. It really helps reduce the noise caused from the high ISOs that are used in this mode. The light is very soft, not harsh like a flash. However, it is not a replacement for a flash since the light is not as intense. The size is great for carring around. I only gave it 4 stars since the Sony adapter that was included with it didn't work at all! I had to purchase the Vello HSA-CSC adapter to use it.
