My name is Nicholas Pappagallo I’m a Lumix Luminary and I’m here today at Parkwood Studios to talk to you about the Genaray Crux CR-10 B. Once again it’s a Genaray Crux CR-10 B LED and this light beyond being small and portable is battery-operated. So I’m going to take this off the stand here show you a little bit about what I like about this particular fixture here. So look at how thin this actual lamp is so there’s a unit on the back here and then all the LEDs actually come around here. So we have 10 inches of light but instead of seeing the LEDs the LEDs are actually facing inwards and that gives you a nice diffusion panel here. You don’t have all those little diodes facing you. Another thing about this it is a bicolor light so you can actually change the light here I’m not going to face it into the camera because I don’t want to mess that up but you can actually change the light here from 5600K all the way down to 3000K there. So I’m going to turn this off so I’m not shining it right into there. This is a flicker-free fixture so for what we’re using here we’re using a different set of Genaray lights you’re not going to get the flicker in my shirt and everything for video production. It’s a great light for video and again I could fit two of these in a suitcase between my clothes and you really can make them very portable. It uses a standard Sony battery so you can buy many of these for cheap after market and they just pop right on there like that. So you have continuous lighting 250 watt equivalent so you can really just get a few of these do great interviews shoot animals it’s not going to freak animals out the way strobe lights would. Wireless control so again we’re going to turn it on here you have wireless control here of four channels so you can actually have four channels so what I can do effectively with this is put this in the ceiling in my studio here and I can have one down low which is my key light and I can control all the other ones. I can dim them up to 100% down to zero I can change the color temperature and all the rest will actually let this one command them so I have four banks of those that I can use. The CRI of this is 95 so it’s got a great CRI rating and the weight best part about this! 2.5 pounds! I can hold this with my pinky here. With the bracket. So great light everything you’d want in an LED there are a couple other different brand names of these I like this Genaray one this is great I love this little panel here it’s very easy to use there’s not knobs I’m going to break off this is battery and 110 so inside this bag that they gave me so Genaray gives you a nice bag I have a battery charger I get a little user manual which is great it shows you how to use everything and then I have a portable bag so if I do want to actually protect them a little more than putting them in between t-shirts in my bag I can put them in this bag and it’s going to give me a little bit more there’s foam in there and everything it’s literally just a little bit more support and keep it from getting scratched up. I hate beat-up gear. I like my gear to be nice and clean. So once again Genaray CR 10B Crux Light it’s an LED I want to thank B&H for sending it over.

I just got mine today. I’m wondering how long it takes the battery to charge? I’ve had it plugged in what seems like about 4 hours already and the green light has yet to appear.

Did if finally charge? Sorry for the late reply.
