Rotolight has launched the NEO 2, what it calls an ‘industry-first’ all-in-one High Speed Sync flash and continuous on-camera LED light source.
Aimed at portrait photographers and videographers, the NEO 2 boasts no recycle time and employs a Skyport 2.4GHz HSS wireless flash receiver that can control up to 10 lights in four groups at distances of up to 200m / 656ft.
What’s more, Rotolight says the NEO 2 Skyport receiver was co-developed with Elinchrom.
But the main feature of the Rotolight NEO 2 is that it can be simultaneously used as a continuous modelling light and HSS flash, allowing users to achieve shutter speeds of 1/8000sec with 500% flash output.
Rotolight says the NEO 2 also provides 85,000 full-power flashes on a single set of rechargeable AA batteries.
The Rotolight NEO 2 is available for Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Panasonic, and, shortly, Fuji users, and it’s also compatible with all other Elinchrom Skyport devices.
