Rotolight Announces the NEO 2 Explorer Kit

Rotolight has announced the NEO 2 Explorer Kit, which weighs less than 15 pounds and is one of the lightest weight three-light kits ever designed.

Rotolight said the new kit is provided in a soft case made from high-quality, water resistant material with a padded strap for added comfort. It includes lights, stands, color FX filters and power supplies.

The NEO 2 is an all-in-one High Speed Sync (HSS) flash and continuous on-camera LED lighting innovation which can be used for both video and still photography.

Packed with innovative features for video users, NEO 2 is ideal for interviews and filmmaking. It includes an updated suite of CineSFX effects, Rotolight’s feature set for filmmakers (fire, lightning, TV, gunshot, paparazzi and others), as well as Designer Fade mode for custom in-camera fade FX.

“Lightweight, portable and amazing battery life, with everything needed in just one case. Even on a large film set lit with big studio fixtures, I always have my own set of three NEO 2’s standing by and ready to bring in for that extra kick or fill, or on a small set up, they provide enough punch on their own,” said Stefan Lange, VFX cinematographer who shot Mission: Impossible, Tomb Raider and James Bond’s Skyfall.

The Rotolight NEO 2 Explorer Kit is available now for $1399.99.
