Product Highlights
  • Lightweight On-Camera LED
  • 3200K, 5600K
  • 1-100% Dimming
  • White, Gel, Color Modes

The Zylight Z90 LED Light Head packs 230 Hi-leds (high-density light emitting diode) into 1 square inch panel which produces a remarkably soft 60° beam with 1-100% dimming.

But that's just the beginning. The Z90 offers almost unheard of control of light quality via 3 output modes. White Mode allows selection of 3200K or 5600K white light, while Color Mode enables the user to tweak the red/green/blue hue and adjust the saturation of it. In Gel Mode the Z90 outputs white light with color temperature control from 2500K-9000K as well as +/- green color correction control.

The Z90 has (2) 1/4"-20 sockets for mounting onto the camera or light supports using dedicated Zylight accessories. One such accessory allows the use of popular sized 3" (7.6 cm) light shaping tools like soft box speed rings and barn doors, to the front of the light.

Built-in ZyLink technology allows ganging multiple units together using simple communication and function control as if they were a single unit, from as much as 30' (9 m) away.

The Z90 operates on 100-240V, 50-60Hz via a universal power supply or 7-24V DC with battery and cable, both available separately.

Note! AC or DC power supply required for use and sold separately.

HD-led Module
At the heart of every Zylight is a next-generation High-Density light-emitting diode (HD-led) module that packs multiple high-power LED elements into a single square inch.
LED Control
Zylight's patented control circuitry and built-in microprocessor automatically compensate for small variations in voltage, current, and temperature and continually adjust the HD-led module to ensure stable, flicker-free output over the entire dimming range for years of reliable operation.
High Output
Zylight's HD-led module has no lensing, maximizing the amount of useful light with only a protective window between the LEDs and your subject.
White Mode
This mode is used to select 3200K or 5600K white light.
Gel Mode
In Gel Mode the Z90 outputs white light with color temperature control from 2500K-9000K as well as +/- green color correction control.
Color Mode
In color mode you can adjust both the color and the saturation of the Z90 via convenient thumbwheels. One thumbwheel adjusts the hue and the other the saturation of that hue.
Even Pattern
The Z90's HD-led module casts 60° of beautifully soft light. Other LED lights use inferior bulbs, creating an uneven pattern of hot and cold spots.
Built-in ZyLink
Built-in ZyLink technology allows you to wirelessly link together multiple Zylights to create a soft LED source as large as you need. Zylights that are linked together act in concert as if they were one unified LED source, with adjustments made on one light changing all lights in the group even at a distance of up to 30' (9 m) from each other.
Engineered Tough
Zylight's engineers have designed every Zylight to perform under the toughest of conditions.
Fully Calibrated
Zylights function like computers that make light. Every Zylight undergoes a detailed multi-point calibration at the factory, and the internal microprocessor continuously adjusts the output during use so you can set it and forget it.
Accessories
You can easily control the Z90's output by snapping on the Accessory Adapter, allowing you to easily mount any standard 3-inch lighting accessory you may already have, such as barndoors or a snoot.
Tested & Certified
Rest assured that the every Zylight is backed by solid engineering with multiple governmental approvals to prove it.

          Comments about Zylight Z90 LED Light Head:

          this is not built for run n gun shooting, it comes without any powersupply, and it cant be powered by standard 12v input batteries. YOU HAVE TO BUY 14.8V which is standard for laptop batteries. there is no cheap solution for its power.

          you cant spend less than $1500 to make this work, and there is no versatile solution for it

            Comments about Zylight Z90 LED Light Head:

            Been using it now for about a month and it rocks! The soft box is a must if you are recording people or animals - basically, the light is powerful and it can hurt to look at it.

            Super fun and colorful light that never fails to impress. I know this review may seem a bit too "glowing" but this light really is that awesome.

            Comments about Zylight Z90 LED Light Head:

            Smaller and much lighter than I though. Feels like a million bucks in your hand with great controls and a very professional appearance. the ability to store presets like a car stereo was a nice touch by the company.I've got it mounted on a 6" hydrostatic arm and running off Ptap ENG style I could not be happier with it's appearance and performance.I am noticing that it produces a very slight, noise - even with the power off but still attached to the Ptap. I don't have it next to my microphone so it's not an issue but it is something to note. It also does not dim to zero.
