Power your mobile photography and videography with the latest Molus X60 lights from Zhiyun and illuminate your scenes with cinematic 60W lighting.

The X60 series comes in two versions, the standard Molus X60 and the enhanced Molus X60 RGB, which differ in terms of color temperatures and color rendering authenticity. The lights are equipped with a handy dual-dial control that allows you to effortlessly adjust their color temperature, mode and brightness.

The whole thing is  highly portable, measuring similar to a credit card in height and weighing in at just 313 grams (319 grams for the X60 RGB). By comparison, your iPhone 15 Pro weighs 221 grams. Despite being palm-sized, these lights pack quite a punch and support app-enabled control for creative lighting possibilities.

Lighting on demand: Zhiyun unveils new 60W lights

Portable lights usually have trade-offs, like overheating and poor color reproduction. No such worries with the new Molus lights, as they’re equipped with the DynaVort Cooling System MKⅡ to keep them running cool.

Speaking of color reproduction, the standard X60 hits color temperatures between 2700K and 6500K, a Color Rendering Index (CRI) of at least 95, a Television Lighting Consistency Index (TLCI) of 97 percent or higher. As a bonus, it doesn’t flicker.

For even higher color fidelity, the enhanced X60 RGB produces pure white light and gives you full control over color reproduction across the full RGB spectrum.

App-enabled lighting

Some versions of the Molus come with a detachable battery that provides 50 minutes of runtime. The battery has a USB Power Delivery port for fast charging (while in use) via an 18W or higher USB-C charger. You can also connect your light to the included power adapter for longer sessions, like outdoor photography.

The app includes presets optimized for specific setups such as live streaming, interviews, commercial shoots, etc. For the Molus X60 RGB, the Zhiyun ZY Vega app supports lighting effects that simulate weather conditions such as rain and thunderstorms. The app can even make your lighting dance in harmony with music.
