We’re delighted to announce that the Anova PRO 2 has been awarded Best Product of 2018 in the lighting category by Videomaker for the versatility it offers both videographers and photographers alike. Adding to the Anova PRO 2’s existing awards such as Studio Daily’s Best of Show at NAB and Pro Moviemaker’s Gear of the Year 2017, Videomaker praised the Anova PRO 2’s robust build quality and innovative features that distinguish it from the competition.
“The Rotolight Anova PRO 2 has some really unique features that are perfect for the hybrid shooter,” writes Videomakers’s Chris Monlux. “If you want a swiss army knife for a light, you should consider the Rotolight Anova PRO 2.”
Tested on various different setups during the review, the Anova PRO 2 was able to provide a soft fill on their interview setup thanks to fully adjustable brightness allowing them to achieve the contrast ratio they wanted. Testing the Anova PRO 2 in product photography against a white background, the Anova PRO 2 delivered the power to overexpose the white surfaces – providing 10700 lux at 3ft – whilst Rotolight’s unique circular design produced appealing reflections when shooting surfaces such as the lens of a camera.
“It’s an honour that the Anova PRO 2 has been named Best Product 2018 and to see that it remains the standard for professional lighting,” says Rotolight managing director, Rod Aaron Gammons. “We are proud that it continues to be recognised for the power and flexibility it provides shooters.”
