This is a stupid question, but I have a Genesis 200 but how do you describe the power increments?

so the settings are from 10 - 60, so it is right to say:
60 = 1/1
30 = 1/2
15 = 1/4 ?

I'm shooting with them a lot lately and I'm jotting down my settings, but I have no idea how to note the power setting. Right now, I've been just saying Genesis 200 45th power. Would that be technically right? so confused...

as far as my experiences goes, the power doesn't stop down proportionally.


450D>60D>5Dc>6D
18-55>17-55>24-105
50 1.8>30 1.4>50 1.4

This is a very delayed response, but the Genesis on "60" is full power or 1:1. Bringing it down to "50" is 1:2 (a full f-stop down). "40" is 1:4 (two stops down). "30" is 1:8, and "20" is 1:16.

Each incremental number SHOULD be a 1/10th f-stop ... so number 58 should technically be 0.2 f-stop less than 60. From a practical standpoint - if you want shadows 1-1/2 stops less then your highlights you would set the main light at "60" and the fill light at "45", for a 1.5 stop difference. (This assumes you're using matching Genesis lights with similar distance to subject, and similar light shapers such as the reflectors supplied with your Genesis lights). However, if you place a soft box or beauty dish on the main ... then your output to subject will be lessened some by that accessory and you have to calculate your numbers based on how much light your attachment is taking away from the main.

I say each incremental SHOULD be 1/10th, but tests by a number of Genesis users show these incrementals aren't always a perfect 1/1oth. Usually close though. You can refer to earlier posts and test results posted online under "Genesis" in the search feature. User "TETRODE" and myself both ran a series and had virtually the same results. Hope you enjoy them!

Had it confirmed to me that Calumet are soon to launch a new range of Genesis flashes. Hence why everywhere is out of stock of 400s in the UK.

Hope they are as good as the old ones, as I really like mine.
