Digital Camera World Verdict

This powerful COB (chip-on-board) light is the perfect accessory for a studio based shoot, featuring a powerful key light to illuminate talking heads style interviews or enhance a dance performance (especially if you trigger music mode). Its quiet fan won’t give your sound-recordist any concerns and the Max mode means it has an extra 100W of power up its sleeve when you need an extra boost. The lack of preset animated light effects loses it a star though.

Zhiyun’s first LED in the Molus series was the pocket sized Molus X100, a lightweight portable key light with a 100W of power that could emit an eye-blinding 3381 Lux.   The newly released Molus G200 blows the X100 out of the water when it comes to output, with a default 200W output that can be boosted to 300W when you need that extra power. The compact Molus X100 is a useful light to illuminate subjects while out and about, making it perfect for social media content creators. The more powerful and larger Molus G200 will be of more interest to studio-based film makers than YouTube vloggers.
