GoPro has announced a new accessory for its action cameras called the GoPro Zeus Mini. The Zeus Mini is a magnetic swivel clip light that is a hands-free LED light built in to be weatherproof and rugged. This is the first release from GoPro in months, with the last notable launch being the GoPro Hero 8 and GoPro Max.
The Zeus Mini accommodates 10 high-power LEDs to light up objects with a 200-lumen brightness, adjustable in 4-steps. The light is designed to be waterproof up to a depth of 33 feet, and can, of course, withstand bumps and drops. The light attaches magnetically, so it can be snapped to any surface with an affinity for magnets.
“Zeus Mini brings to lighting what the HERO camera brings to cameras—incredible versatility, design and performance,” said GoPro’s founder and CEO Nicholas Woodman. “Once you start using Zeus Mini, you realize how convenient it is to have added light during so many situations. I now keep one in my car, one in my toolbox and one in my backpack for on-the-go readiness. It’s addictively enabling.”
What is really interesting is that the Zeus Mini is not actually a new product, but a combination of two existing accessories from GoPro. GoPro has always had the Light Mod, which is the lighting module with the same number of individual LEDs and the same level of durability. The second accessory is the magnetic swivel clip, which allows you to attach the Light Mod to it and have the freedom to swivel and turn the light in whichever direction you want. The Zeus Mini costs $69.99, while the light and magnetic clip individually cost $49.99 and $24.99 respectively. This makes the Zeus Mini slightly cheaper than buying the individual accessories.
The Zeus Mini has already started selling on GoPro’s APAC website and carries a $69.99 price tag. If you do decide to buy the Zeus Mini, do note that there will be additional charges for shipping and import duties.
