Zylight Lights Up the Show at PhotoPlus 2016
Added on 10/28/2016
An interview from the 2016 PhotoPlus Expo in New York City with Ben Clay of Zylight. From run-and-gun ENG, to Hollywood sound stages, to the frigid summit of Mt. Everest, Zylight's team and lighting products have been there to back you up – with tested and proven results. With over 100 dealers and distributors worldwide, Zylight continues to grow its brand and products to a large worldwide audience, to truly be a cut above all other LED products. In this interview Ben talks with us about the Newz on Camera Light, the F8-200 LED Fresnel & IS3/c LED Light.
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.
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.
Built on the award-winning F8 platform, the F8-200 LED Fresnel is the new standard of portable LED lighting. It continues the Zylight tradition of combining high quality optics with a special blend of quantum nanoparticles. The result is output that boasts high CRI and TLCI ratings, with a quality of light matched only by traditional sunlight and incandescent bulbs. And the F8-200 allows you to use your existing standard camera batteries for bright, color accurate LED output. Available in both 3200K or 5600K color temperature versions, the F8-200’s advanced ultra-bright LED module ensures excellent skin tones and rich, accurate color rendition. Of course, the F8-200 has all the hallmarks of a traditional Fresnel light, including single shadow beam shaping with adjustable beam spread (16-70 degrees), continuous focus, and a high-quality 8” lens for a smooth light field.
The IS3/c combines Zylight’s unmatched color-mixing technology and high-quality construction to meet the demands of location and studio professionals who require an extremely bright and wide soft source, while offering all of the innovative features for which Zylight is renowned: Fully dimmable with minimal color shift, adjustable color temperature and color correction, unlimited color control, integrated ZyLink wireless control, and rugged construction for years of reliable service. The IS3/c’s advanced four-color mixing ensures excellent skin tones and rich, accurate color rendition. And the IS3c’s wide 90° spread means the IS3/c is up to the task for shooting with wide angle lenses or in 16×9 format. 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.
The ZyLink Bridge takes wireless lighting control to the next level. The ZyLink Bridge is a lightweight, wireless fob that allows the ZyLink App, ZyLink Bridge for iOS devices to communicate with the integrated ZyLink wireless control found in most Zylight fixtures. Forget routers or complicated network configurations. Just turn on the lights, select one of the 10 ZyLink wireless channels, and take control with the ZyLink App.
With its intuitive layout, the ZyLink App on your iPhone or iPad allows precise lighting adjustments for multiple Zylight fixtures. The app makes it easy to access brightness and white light temperature controls, plus color and saturation adjustments for the IS3, IS3c, Z90, and other models equipped with Color Mode.
No more climbing ladders, swapping gels, and hoping you’ve got the right look. With the Zylink Bridge, your DP or lighting designer can sit in front of a reference monitor and use their iPhone to adjust individual fixtures or groups of lights. The app also includes four popular effects – cross-fade, strobe, police, and flame – that can be adjusted to match the needs of a particular scene, as well as presets to save commonly used lighting designs.
