Hello, my name is Nicholas Pappagallo, I am a Lumix Luminary, and I am talking today about the Genaray Spectro LED. So we just got this in, literally, we just did a review and this one popped in, so we decided to jump in and review this one as well for you guys. This light, the Spectro, is actually pinned as a studio LED, so there's no battery pack on here, it's optional, but it's not something that you have built into the back. So this one is a daylight light, so when I turn this on here, you'll be able to see it's a daylight light, I'm not going to face it towards the camera because I don't want to blow everything out, but we'll show the controls close up.
You can change your dimming on the light from zero through 100%. Another great option that I loved about this light is the fact that you have these barn doors, so these barn doors come in like this, and you can gate this down to just a strip of light, you can put gels in here with these little tiny clips. So I'll show you the little clips, you've got clips on the top and bottom here, so you can actually put your gels on there. You have two diffusers this comes with. So the diffuser I have on right now is a clear diffusion panel, but you can also upgrade that, and they have magnets on them, with a tungsten diffusion panel. So right now we turned it from daylight to tungsten with that filter. Great little option to have. They do sell a bi-color version of this for a few dollars more, so you can actually get it with bi-color LEDs. This version is not that version. On the back here, you have great construction, it's built out of metal. You have a pretty heavy-duty XLR-looking plug and you have an on-off switch. The other thing that we really liked about this light is the option to move this knuckle around to every side, so you can actually take this knuckle and you can put it anywhere you want around the light here, so that you don't have to mount it to the ceiling of the studio and have the controls upside down. So really cool little option. These barn doors will also double as a way to protect your LEDs, so it does come with a case, but if you just want to travel with it like this, you have a metal cover over all of your LEDs now. Very versatile and helpful for that. Now this is the best part of this light. This is a Dr. Evil special little controller. So you can pop this little antenna up, and I'm going to turn it around so that it doesn't blind our cameras. But basically, once you have this light, I can turn it on, so you have to leave the light on, I can turn it on and off with this little remote control. So the letter D will turn the light on and off, so if it's mounted in my ceiling, I can Velcro this to the wall, and turn it on multiple lights, and then I have C, so once it's on, C will go to 100%, 75%, 50% power, and then 25%, and then back up to 100%. A and B should be arrows, but A and B is, B will go lower and A will go brighter. So it's your dimming control on the remote. Great little Dr. Evil special from the 1980s and I love it. So the CRI rating of this light is 93 or above, so great, great CRI on this. The poundage we're talking about is 8.3 pounds, so not as portable but it is portable to an extent, but you're not going to pack it in your suitcase like the other light, the crux lights we were talking about. So, little bit more of a studio light, I like the light, I'm excited to start shooting with it and testing out some video footage. It doesn't flicker, it's flicker-free again. I want to thank B&H for supplying us with the light to test out, and you can find the links down below for B&H. Also, check out our other videos and subscribe above here to see more videos. We're always coming out with new videos out there and all the information for everyone, Jerry, myself, the studio, is all in the links, so check that out, and we'll see you in the next video.
