The Rotolight NEO kit is a 3 x lamp bi-colour LED light kit with punchy LEDs which work in daylight or tungsten colour temperature and are light enough for on-camera use.  They also include very versatile electronic lighting functions such as lightning, strobe etc.

It has the classic “ring light” shape, giving beautiful catchlights.

The Rotolight Neo provides Bi-colour LED technology claims the best-in-class colour rendering, and it is the world’s first ever on-camera light to include a highly accurate electronic colour temperature display (CCT). This allows colour temperature to be quickly and accurately adjusted on-location between 3150K and 6300K in 10K increments. The CRI is typically 95 and better than 98 for skin tones and the light is flicker-free at any frame rate or shutter angle.

The 120-strong LED bank gives an output of 1077 Lux at 3ft (roughly twice the output of the competition), and dimming fully between 0-100% . “Dynamic Drift Compensation” ensures the set colour temperature remains the same regardless of dimmer setting. Colour Temperature is adjusted using the Dual Rotary Encoder Control system both for quick colour temperature and brightness adjustments on-location.

The Neo’s small size and fast setup makes it ideal for “Run & Gun” news shooting, cinematography or stills photography, and has up to 3 hours’ running time at 100% power using 6x AA batteries, or it can be run from a mains or a D-Tap cable.

Suitable for High Speed

Rotolight is approved by Phantom for acquisition flicker-free at 7000 fps.
