GoPro releases a flashlight for some reason

Today GoPro Entered the jackfruit business of personal lighting. this is GoPro Zeus Mini; It looks like a red light, although it is a curious product of the action camera company.

The waterproof Zeus Mini costs $ 69.99 and ships with a magnetic spring clip. GoPro states that Lite is also compatible with all GoPro mounts. The versatile mount may be the best thing about the Zeus Mini. This light makes sense for those investing in GoPro’s ecosystem. Already have a GoPro mount on a bike? Now it can be used for cameras or lights.

The lighting market is increasingly competitive. Subredits and forums and fan sites have popped up over the years, where people look out for the latest products from brands such as Phenix, Nightcore, Sofiran and Olite. For the imagination, for a novice like me the Zeus Mini equals the best from these companies.

The Zeus has four brightness levels, which can result in outputs of up to 200 lumens. Torch nerds will be quick to point out that 200 lumens are good, but not great, and it is the range and diffusion of light that is important.

Since it is a GoPro product, it is waterproof, compact and seemingly durable, although I have yet to see a person.

GoPro’s stock is climbing and tipping as it reaches its highest level in 2020. As of writing, the stock is trading at $ 4.14 per share, up about 3% to this day. The company is recovering from the COVID-19 crash, though the stock price is almost half of its 52-week high of $ 7.33.

GoPro is following other companies that provide similar illumination for use in GoPro mounts. These lights are widely available in online retailers. Some provide higher output, while others are much less expensive.
