The AEOS delivers a powerful light output of 5,750 lux at three feet, but is also one of the most energy efficient LEDs on the market, able to run for three hours at 100% power on a single 95W
AEOS is also the first location LED light to include integrated aluminium handles, which gives users the freedom to work the light at angles and positions not otherwise possible. Breaking from traditional convention of LED lights in this form factor, AEOS does not feature a traditional yoke, which typically limits movement of the light to just 30-40 degrees of tilt, limiting control over light spill. Instead, it includes a professional level ball head as standard, providing complete 360 degree rotation, and 200 degrees of tilt when mounted to a light stand. This makes it incredibly versatile and enables users to achieve lighting setups not otherwise possible with traditional light sources. The ball head is made from high-quality, solid aluminium and can support the full weight of the AEOS with battery and barn doors mounted, at any angle.
“The Rotolight AEOS really is the ultimate light for location and portrait photographers who want something powerful, yet portable and easy to carry, with a beautiful soft light output. AEOS will simply enable you to get shots no one else can, says Jason Lanier, Sony Artisan of Imagery and award winning photographer. AEOS features dual controls for brightness, and fast, tuneable colour on location thanks to the accurate colour temperature display. AccuColour™ LED technology delivers industry-leading colour rendering performance, eliminating the need for timely colour correction of skin tones in post-production.
“The one thing that we’ve always understood is that photographers all work with light in so many different ways. However, they’re often hindered by the size, weight or manoeuvrability of the light. We’ve developed the AEOS as a result of clear feedback from our customers that they wanted something powerful, but highly portable. The ease of use with AEOS allows photographers to be more creative and spend more time composing their perfect shot, rather than spending time on cumbersome lighting setups,” says Gammons.
AEOS is also packed full of Rotolight’s signature industry-first, patented features including:
