ROTOLIGHT HAS AN­NOUNCED a world first with its NEO 2, an all- in- one High- Speed Sync ( HSS) flash and con­tin­u­ous on- cam­era LED for por­trait pho­tog­ra­phers and videog­ra­phers. NEO 2 pro­vides the ben­e­fits of con­tin­u­ous light and the flex­i­bil­ity of HSS flash ( 1/ 8000th sec) when­ever users need more power or to freeze ac­tion. HSS also en­ables users to shoot with wider aper­tures to cre­ate beau­ti­ful sep­a­ra­tion be­tween sub­ject and back­grounds. It fea­tures ad­justable colour tem­per­a­ture in both flash and con­tin­u­ous modes, with a built- in Kelvin dis­play, and gives 5,000 full- power flashes on a sin­gle set of recharge­able AA bat­ter­ies. It costs £ 300 and is avail­able now for Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olym­pus and Pana­sonic, with Fu­ji­film to fol­low soon. Also, Rotolight has col­lab­o­rated with Elinchrom to in­te­grate its Sky­port 2.4Ghz HSS wire­less flash re­ceiver into NEO 2, elim­i­nat­ing the need to buy a stand­alone fl flash ash re­ceiver. Sky­port en­ables users to wire­lessly con­trol up to ten lights in four groups at up to 200m with the new Rotolight HSS trans­mit­ter. www. rotolight. com
