TRUE APERTURE DIMMING™ calculates and displays the correct aperture (F-Stop) for your subject at a given distance, revolutionizing your work flow by eliminating the need for metering. Alternatively, dynamically adjust your brightness level, to work at your desired aperture (F-Stop).
DESIGNER FADE™ mode provides custom fade up / fade down interview/ production effects for DSLR videographers and creative cinematographers, reducing time required in post production.
Commenting on Rotolight’s ™ CineSFX ™ mode, Stefan Lange Visual FX Veteran said
“The CineSFX mode that’s built into the Rotolight Anova PRO is an advantage to any production. It’s fast – it doesn’t matter if it’s a feature, a drama or a documentary, its always going to come out and fill that little bit of, and add that little effect. There isn’t a job I wouldn’t take it on.”
