British Journal of Photography reviews the Award Winning Rotolight RL48-B!
Rotolight just received an incredible extensive full page review in the February 2012 edition of the world famous and highly prestigious British Journal of Photography – the Worlds Oldest Photography Magazine, written by Michael Roscoe
“The RL48-B Stealth will appeal to new comers wanting affordable lighting with build quality comparable with lighting solutions at more than double its price”“The Rotolights performance belies its small size and light weight. It casts a punchy and crisp cast of light with a 110 degree beam angle with a very even light distribution, which means there are no unsightly hot spots.”“There’s no doubt the Rotolight kit should appeal to both beginners and expert videographers, its small size and light weight make it ideal when youre traveling light or when you want to light subject matter in cramped conditions.”“The control afforded by the diffusion and Kelvin-rated filters means even the most demanding user will find it hard to grumble.””The RL48-B is weather resistant and its construction feels refined and robust so it should endure regular use.”"When it is used as a front light the power output of the RL48-B Stealth strikes the balance perfectly between producing enough light for the job and not blinding a model or interviewee.”
“It is ideal as a fill-in light when working with existing ambient lighting conditions… where any shadows are nicely smoothed out.”
“The battery longevity was impressive.”
“The RL48-B Stealth is most likely to be used as a front light so its wide-beam angle is ideal for illuminating broad areas in front of the camera, which can come in useful, for example when shooting a video interview with more than one person in the frame.”
“It is easy to get the kit set up in less than a minute.”
I’ve been told there no sound interference issues when any of the Rotolight products are used with recording equipment [ whilst mounted to a shotgun microphone] , and this was certainly true in my tests.
“Controlling the colour temperature of the device is simple and effective…. Thanks to thebundled Lee Filters that include a neutral 5600K daylight output, or even atungsten equivalent of around 3200K that will help to match any ambient lightthat is present.”
