Genaray SP-E-360B overview

  • 1Description

The SpectroLED Essential 360 Bi-Color LED Light by Genaray is a 360 LED panel with color temperature that's variable from tungsten-balanced 3200K to daylight-balanced 5600K or anywhere in between. Instead of fumbling with filters you can match other light sources or ambient light conditions, or just use color creatively. Light intensity is also variable from 100 - 0% without color shift or flickering.

The SpectroLED Essential 360 offers a 60° flood beam angle and a high CRI for precise and faithful color rendering. The 11.75 x 11.75 x 2.6˝ panel weighs just 3.55 lb and with its slim profile and barely perceptible warmth can be placed in areas that traditional fixtures just can't go. Another benefit of using LEDs is low power draw; although it uses just 30W of power, it outputs many times that number meaning a rapid return on investment. If you need more power Genaray has got that covered too; the light's included clips allow you to stack up to 3 units for triple the power. You can even daisy-chain several units using the separately purchased SP-E-MLC Multi Link Cable which allows one master unit to control the color and light intensity of the others.

Power options are equally versatile. Use the included multi-voltage AC adapter to run the SpectroLED anywhere in the world, or shed the power cord and employ optional V-mount batteries or use NP-F type batteries with the separately purchased SP-E-NPBA adapter when mains current is unavailable.

Adjustable Color Temperature
Variable color output from 3200-5600K allows you to balance color without filters.
100-0% Dimming
The SpectroLED is dimmable from 100 - 0% without color shift and flicker.
High CRI
The SpectroLED's high CRI rating ensures vibrant, accurate rendition of color.
Battery or AC Power
The SpectroLED Essential 360 LED is powered by an AC adapter, allowing for a wall-socket power supply. The light unit also accepts V-mount batteries, affording you wireless power portability. As an alternative, you can also power the unit using NP-F batteries with the Genaray SP-E-NPBA battery adapter.
Flexible Mounting
The light has an industry-standard 5/8" receiver for stand mounting as well as 1/4"-20 top and bottom taps for stacking and supports such as ball heads.
Daisy-Chain Control
Using Genaray's SP-E-MLC Multi Link Cable, you can connect multiple SpectroLEDs together and control color and brightness from one master unit.
Stackable
Thanks to its removable yoke, you can use the included clips to stack up to 3 lights for triple the power.

    Genaray SP-E-360B reviews

    SpectroLED Essential 360 Bi-Color LED Light is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 42.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light, great value! These are great video lights. Very lightweight and portable. Output is good and color temperature flexibility is nice. The diffusion filter it comes with is good but the design is odd. Once the filter is on you can't fully tilt the light because the bottom of the filter will hit the yoke bracket. But you can take it off, adjust your tilt then put it back on. Having battery powered option is huge. I recommend getting the V-lock bracket for these and a couple batteries for each light. I shot all day and had these on for the majority of the time and didn't get past half battery usage. I love these and can't wait to get a whole bunch more of them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and affordable LED for video I wanted a modestly priced LED to supplement natural light on video shoots. I was looking for something that could be powerful enough as a key in low light situations, bicolor, and portable. This hits all the marks. Very versatile and affordable. Pros: 1)capable of producing a stronger light than anticipated 2)doesn't flicker when dimmed Cons: two design flaws (annoying but still functional): 1)you have to remove the diffuser before adjusting the angle of the light 2)the light mounts slightly off center on the light stand

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good lights for interviews and tabletop I bought these panels as part of a B&H kit. This kit is exactly what I'm looking for: a lightweight yet sufficiently powerful lighting kit for one-on-one video interviews and tabletop shooting. While I've had access to a friend's professional kit (halogen lights, C-stands), I found it too powerful, too heavy, too hot, and too intrusive for everyday use. This kit is lightweight and portable yet sufficiently sturdy. The output from the lights won't light up an entire room but works well for an interview situation and to separate the subject from the background. The stands are lightweight and relatively sturdy, but I think that investing in some sandbags would be a good idea as a counterbalance to the weight of the light panels. The lights consist of alternating rows of blue and red LEDs. With the colour knob turned to 5600K, only the blue LEDs are lit. Turned to 3200K, only the reds are lit. When turned to the middle both sets are fully lit. There is therefore a continuous colour temperature possible. Lighting intensity is at its maximum when at the mid-point, about 4400K. The dimmer dial is very useful, dialing the intensity up and down instead of moving the lights closer or further away. The kit comes with 4 batteries, 2 per light, and four AC chargers, 4 car chargers, and 2 NP adapters for the V-mount. I've opted to use the batteries (which apparently last for about six hours) rather than the supplied AC adapter: no need for extensions, no cables to trip the unwary (and send your lights crashing to the ground). Each light also comes with a very effective diffuser, a piece of translucent plastic that snaps on the front of the light; because the diffuser is slightly oversized, it does not sit flat against the front of the light but rather bows out slightly, giving a very pleasant illumination. One feature I doubt I will use is the ability to clamp the two lights together, on edge. That would increase the weight obviously and affect the stability of the two on a stand. Another optional feature I won't use is the ability to daisy-chain the lights together so that controlling one controls the other. Finally, the yokes. Each light sits in a U-shaped yoke that allows it to tilt up and down. When mounted conventionally on a stand, especially with the diffuser in place, this limits the travel of a tilt down (see first picture). To remedy this, the yoke can be positioned horizontally. Perhaps surprisingly, this horizontal mounting still doesn't off-balance the light stands, although stability seems more precarious. The design of these panels doesn't include (allow for?) barn doors, but I haven't missed their presence. Net, net: I would recommend this kit for someone who is more concerned with portability than stability; who does not need a lot of light output; and who can manage the shooting environment to prevent collisions with the lights/stands, which would surely result in a crash and a broken light panel. The kit does not include cases, so I will be purchasing duffle bags for both the panels and the stands.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I use this with Super 35 (Canon EOS C100). I own many Genaray products but most of mine are portable or battery powered. While this one can be portable I'm using it with AC power. I love that you can adjust color temp. So overall good product. If I had one thing I don't like it would be the diffusion filter and the way it goes on. My other Genaray lights have magnet style filters this one slides on and is a little tricky but no big deal once you figure it out.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product! I am using these as key lights and bounce lights for interviews and they work great!! They are a great buy for the price! Super light and compact! The stands are small and light with is good for carrying, but not the best support. Overall, it is a very good product!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Baffled by all the great reviews. Disclaimer: I didn't purchase these from B&H... Build quality is decent at this price point, but I'm not sure it would stand up to travel or hard use. Given that you only get 180 LED for Daylight or Tungsten, I am not impressed with output. I'm curious where Genaray came up with the 3000 plus LUX rating at 1meter? If you add the additional cost of V Lock batteries, its NOT a very good value. There is an option to buy a Sony NP battery converter, but that adds another $70 and more stuff to store. Sorry I bought my two. I would have been better off with the daylight model. I've found two Essential 240 Daylight LED stacked are a much better solution, especially with a D-Fuse DF-1L. The 240's are MUCH easier to pack, lighter, and take Sony/Watson NP's - which I can also use with my Atomos Ninja Blade. I'm also considering the Genaray Outfit 500 Daylight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent multi purpose light I use this for quick set ups and evening out the lighting in shots involving the interior of a car. This light is not the brightest but still very useful and is the perfect size for a variety of different uses. The battery lasts a surprisingly long time. Overall, I'm very pleased with this purchase as it has proven effective for simulating/evening out the lighting compositions I need to create.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent light, great value! For the price, this light can't be beat. I've used it to shoot many interviews with my Canon 70D DSLR. I've found it provides the perfect amount of fill for my subjects. When I position them near a window for natural light, I place this on the opposite side, maybe 4-5' away, and it provides beautiful, adjustable, daylight-balanced fill. The light is lightweight, quiet, cool, and super-fast to set up and break down. Though it comes with a diffuser, I've had no reason to use it yet. No, the light isn't bombproofso if you're the kind of person who abuses your gear by throwing it around, knocking it over, etc...you might not want this. I take care of my equipment, and I have no doubt this light will last for many years of shooting. I'm very happy with the purchase and will likely pick up a second one!
