Newz2The Newz is the next generation camera-top light with attributes not found on lights at twice the price. This palm-sized powerhouse is set up for simplicity while delivering everything you expect from a Zylight instrument. The Newz gives you the flexibility of fully dimmable, variable white color temperatures from 3200-5600K. Go from indoors to outdoors with just the turn of a dial.

By combining traditional phosphor with our custom blend of Quantum nanoparticles the Newz boasts a CRI of up to 95 and a quality of light matched only by traditional sunlight and incandescent bulbs, while using a fraction of the energy.

The Newz is designed with all functionality at your fingertips. Quick set up and breakdown is a snap thanks to the one-touch integrated quick release mount, and the integrated articulating arm makes adjusting the Newz quick and easy: Bring it up high, push it over your lens, the one-handed adjustability lets you set position without struggling with locks or knobs.

The Zylight Newz can be powered by both a Worldwide AC power adapter or standard 7.2V or 14.4V camera batteries for complete portability. The water-resistant IP54 rating ensures the Newz will perform in rain, snow, or blowing dirt and dust. Whether shooting a stand-up in a hurricane or blizzard, the Newz will deliver.

”The Z90 LED light from Zylight has been an integral part of my lighting setup. Its size, extremely low power consumption and flexible color control have allowed me to place a Z90 in tight areas where power is sometimes not available and provide a subtle touch of color when needed.”
