Anyone who shoots both photos and video will be interested in Rotolight’s new Neo 2, which combines a high-speed sync flash that doesn’t need any recycle time with continuous on-camera LED lighting that is 85 per cent brighter than its predecessor.
The HSS flash can deliver 500 per cent of the continuous light output at 1/8000th of a second, and Rotolight has integrated Elinchrom’s Skyport 2.4Ghz HSS wireless flash receiver into Neo 2, allowing control of off-camera lighting set-ups using up to 10 lights in four groups at up to 200m. It will work with Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Panasonic and Fuji cameras, and all other Elinchrom Skyport devices.
“The Neo 2 is going to revolutionise how people use light, and eliminate the need for external flash. If you have those moments that you just cannot afford to miss, this is an incredible light for you,” said professional photographer Jason Lanier, who tested Neo 2 on a Sony A6500 at 11 frames per second.
