Rotolight NEO 3 wins Lighting Product of the year at Amateur Photographer Awards 2022
POSTED ON 8 APRIL 2022
British LED lighting brand, Rotolight, has scooped the prestigious Lighting Product of the Year award 2022 with the Rotolight NEO 3.
Amateur Photographer magazine Editor, Nigel Atherton, introduced the accolade and the Rotolight NEO 3 and AEOS 2 by stating, “It’s funny, you wait years for a true innovation in LED lighting and then two arrive at the same time,” continuing, “LED lighting technology has advanced dramatically over the past 10 years, and UK-based Rotolight has been at the forefront of its development. Five years ago, the NEO 2 blazed a trail by combining variable colour temperature with both continuous light and flash. Now the NEO 3 goes several steps further, with increased brightness and full-colour output via its RGBWW LEDs. With its intuitive touchscreen control, the NEO 3 offers photographers a choice of modes. In CCT, you get variable colour temperature from 3000 to 10,000 K, while HSI gives a choice of 16.7 million colours covering pretty much the entire spectrum. In Gel mode, Rotolight has programmed in the spectral characteristics of 2,500 different filters. In any of these modes, the NEO 3 can be used either as a continuous light or flash. A variety of special effects is also available for video work. Powered by a Sony NP-F type battery, the NEO 3 measures 145mm in diameter and weighs 354g, which means it’s small enough to be used on a camera’s hot shoe. We’d recommend getting the Ultimate kit, which includes a diffusion dome that noticeably improves the quality of the light. Overall, it’s a great option for those who shoot both stills and moving images on the move.”
