The Newz LED On-Camera Light from Zylight is an on-camera LED light with variable color temperature that can be dimmed from 100 to 0%. With a range of 3200 to 5600K, you can easily use this light for interior and exterior productions. It achieves a CRI rating of 95, which provides excellent color reproduction. With an IP54 rating, the Newz is suitable for use in wet, snowy, and dusty environments. The light draws a maximum of 17W and has an input voltage range of between 5 and 20 VDC.

The light fixture mounts to your camera via a quick release 1/4"-20 threaded mounting stud with integrated D-Tap power cable. An integrated articulating arm allows you to mount the light low and tight on your camera or position it forward on your camera without having to change the attachment point. The arm incorporates a quick release function, enabling you to quickly remove or re-mount the light without having to unscrew the 1/4"-20 mounting block. Incorporating ZyLink Wireless allows you to either slave multiple Zylight fixtures together so that they mirror each other or control your fixture using an optional ZyLight remote.

ZyLink Wireless
ZyLink wireless means every Zylight can talk to any other Zylight from up to 60 feet away. You can set up a group of Zylights to key light a subject or wash a wall with color and then adjust their intensity from across the set while watching the monitor. This allows you tremendous remote control capability since they can be easily linked together to act in concert as if they were one unified source. Adjustments made on one light change all lights in the group, or you can use an optional remote control unit. A choice of ten wireless channels allows you to isolate lights from each other if the need arises.
Quick release mounting allows you to quickly attach/remove the fixture to/from your camera, while leaving the mounting foot and power cable attached to your camera. This can speed up the time it takes to prep the camera and wrap your package at the end of the day.
Removable barndoors allow you to have control over your light's spill.
The Newz features individual control knobs for color temperature and brightness.

    Newz LED On-Camera Light with Wireless Control is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would most definitely buy this product again! I've been a TV photojournalist for over 35 years. I've used every type of camera mounted light that has been around. The switch to camera too LED lights has had its good points and bad. The Zylight Newz virtually gets rid of problems of past lights. The Newz is well made. It's not cheap plastic that switches or knobs fail after exposure to the elements. It's bright but doesn't consume much power. It's ability to change color temperature and intensity is a must. It's weight on a camera is negligible. I purchased this with my own money to use at work. Frankly, I just got tired of the lights I was given at work with. It's been a good investment. I would suggest this for all photojournalist.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, Robust beautiful on camera Light!!! Small compact light that is retractable, robust and great quality of light. I love the wireless controls, and it comes with barn doors, and the quick release is pretty cool. You could bring it up high, push it over your lens, the one-handed adjustability lets you set the position without locks or knobs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile & Bright! I use this light entirely off-camera. I'm not sure it is designed to be attached to the hotshoe of a DSLR -- the coldshoe on an ENG camera is the intended mounting point. I employ this light with the AC adapter (purchase separately) as a macro fill light for still photography. Its light weight, adjustable color and illumination levels, and splash resistance make it really nice for close-up fill that packs a punch. In addition, the light is cool, meaning that delicate or temperature-sensitive subjects will not melt under its considerable illumination. The barn doors are wonderful for keeping glare away from the lens and the adjustable color temperature has a handy memory recall feature that is easily accessed. The only reason I have given it 4 stars instead of 5 is that DSLR videographers could use a hotshoe mount designed with their cameras in mind - not everyone has a cage covered in 1/4 20 mounting points. The light quality is very high and the manipulation of both color and illumination level in such a small package is what gives this light such wonderful versatility. The build quality feels excellent and the construction inspires confidence. Full disclosure: I received this light at no cost from the manufacturer as the winner of a promotional contest with no obligation to review it. I've enjoyed the product and provide the review above because I am impressed with the thoughtful design and useful features.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Update: Versatile & Bright! Zylight also makes accessories for 1/4 - 20 and hotshoe mounts. I am updating my rating accordingly!
