Zylight F8 Delivers
For Lightworks.TV
T

hrough His London-Based
Company, Light works.T V
Ltd., Lighting Cameraman Scott
Munro shoots and edits a variety
of projects, from US network news
packages to corporate videos and
documentaries.
While he does not own a
professional HD camcorder, he has
invested in an extensive collection of
production accessories and lighting
instruments, including the Zylight
F8 LED Fresnel.
"It's hard to keep up with camera
technology," he explained, "but you
can own lights these days and make
them work for all sorts of projects.
If you buy good products, like the
Zylight F8, you're going to get a good
return on your investment. Good
lighting never goes out of fashion."
Munro appreciates that batterypowered LED lights allow cameramen
to bring lights to locations where
HMI lights are not an option. That
said, he has not converted his entire
lighting arsenal to LED, because

36

most instruments he has tested only
deliver soft light. The Zylight F8 LED
Fresnel was a notable exception,
which is why he purchased one in
late 2013 and has used it for a variety
of projects this year.
"There is a need for hard lighting
sometimes," Munro said. "LED is an
evolving market. There have been
improvements, and I think Zylight
is one of those big improvements."
Through its eight-inch SCHOTT
glass lens, the F8 maintains single
shadow traditional beam shaping,
while its patented focusing system
allows spot and flood operations.
The fully dimmable F8 has a high
CRI (colour rendering index) and
offers an adjustable beam spread
(16-70 degrees). Its LED engine
with quantum dot technology draws
only 100 watts, but delivers close
to the light output of a traditional
1000-watt Fresnel.
With such varied shooting
assignments, the daylight (5600K)
balanced F8 was the "obvious

Lighting cameraman Scott Munro of Lightworks.TV uses a Zylight F8 LED
Fresnel for a variety of projects

choice" instead of tungsten (3200K)
for Munro, because he needed the
higher output for outdoor shots.
Inside or out, he uses barn doors
with a soft box and honeycomb grid
to shape the F8's output. "You can
always make a big light smaller," he
noted, "but you can't make a small
light bigger."
Munro praised the F8's build
quality and compact storage, both
important factors for shooting
on location. The F8 proved its
worth during a recent shoot at the

Farnborough International Airshow
outside of London in July. Munro
only had a short window of time,
and external power for HMI lights
was not an option. He powered his
Zylight with an IDX battery and got
the shots his client needed.
"Working quickly and efficiently is
a great way to please a client - and
bring them back," Munro said. "I feel
the Zylight is an efficient light. It's
just great. It's focusable, controllable,
affordable and incredibly reliable."
