Lighting is of the utmost importance in any kind of filmmaking, and Zylight’s Newz camera top light is a portable and powerful lighting solution for most any situation. We stopped to talk with Zylight’s Charlie Collias at NAB about their new light’s many features, including a quick release mount, dual color temperatures and high brightness, all in such a small package.
The 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 Newz1water-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.
