Open Menu
The multiple award-winning F8-100 LED Fresnel from Zylight is the next generation of Fresnel lights. All of the hallmarks of a traditional Fresnel light are present; Single shadow beam shaping through barn doors, continuous focusing and a smooth light field. The Zylight F8-100 adds wireless and DMX control, water-resistant IP54 rating,and very rugged construction for field reliability.

Available in both 3200K or 5600K color temperature versions, the Zylight F8-100 is extremely compact, durable and the most versatile Fresnel light ever built, boasting a CRI of up to 97 and a quality of light matched only by traditional sunlight and incandescent bulbs, while using a fraction of the energy.
The Zylight F8 100 can be powered by both a worldwide AC power adapter or a standard 14.4V camera battery for complete portability. Its thin design and shape allow it to pack into small cases and be taken anywhere. The water-resistant IP54 rating ensures the F8 100 will be comfortable in falling rain or snow, and blowing dirt and dust.

Whether shooting a stand-up in a hurricane or snow storm, the F8 will deliver bright light with ease. Try that with your traditional LED Fresnel! In the studio, all functionality of the Zylight F8 100 can be controlled via DMX or remotely via the built-in ZyLink ™ wireless link.
Local control such as dimming, focus and wireless operation are provided on the rear of the F8 100. At 15” x 12” x 4” it will take up considerable less space in your grid than its traditional counterpart. The yoke mount allows for easy panning and tilting for quick focusing. The F8’s silent operation means it can run in a studio setting without disruption of audio recording or talent distraction.
The F8’s advanced ultra bright LED module ensures excellent skin tones and rich, accurate color rendition. Continual focusing and an adjustable beam spread between 16-70° allows for even coverage when shooting with wide-angle lenses or HD 16×9 format. Beam specifications are available in the download link above. The F8-100 uses a high quality glass 8” Fresnel lens and has an equivalent output of a traditional 1000 watt Tungsten instrument. Many accessories are available.

The F8 boasts a high CRI and TLCI rating and a quality of light matched only by traditional sunlight and incandescent bulbs, while using a fraction of the energy. The F8 is also available with a 365nm ultraviolet LED module (F8-B).
