We are very excited to announce that in addition to the arrival of the Rotolight NEO III, its big brother, the AEOS II is also now in stock! This revolutionary light is 140% more powerful in continuous mode than its predecessor, the AEOS I, and up to three stops more powerful in flash mode. With AEOS II, the impossible becomes possible.
The AEOS II combines the live-view benefits of powerful continuous light with a high speed RGBWW strobe, and offers unmatched versatility for photographers and filmmakers alike. It is amazingly lightweight with an ultra-thin design, giving you freedom to shoot anywhere and get perfect results every time. Plus, Rotolight’s V-Lok batteries will last for 100,000 full-power flashes, so it’s perfect for shooting on location.
Like the new NEO III, the AEOS II provides a world of colour at your fingertips, and lets you choose from over 16.7 million colours or 2,500 digital filters for endless creative possibilities without having to reach for fiddly filters. Rotolight’s award-winning suite of CineSFX™ effects include fire, lightning, TV and gunshot; they really set the scene and let you realise your creative vision. These lights are also incredibly powerful, producing 11,500 LUX in continuous mode at 3ft from the subject and 17,500 LUX in strobe mode, allowing you to overpower the sun.
An intuitive, full-colour touchscreen display lets you effortlessly access key features and recall your favourite settings at a moment’s notice. Alternatively, Rotolight’s new app will allow you to control colour, power, flash settings and more via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi – you can just sit back in your director’s chair and change the settings of up to 20 lights from the palm of your hand.
The AEOS II comes with a built-in Elinchrom receiver, so if you are shooting in strobe mode, simply attach a Skyport HSS transmitter to your hotshoe and you have full control. Not only this, but Skyport transmitters can control up to 40 receivers at a time – just set each light’s brightness and colour and trigger them all at once. High speed sync (HSS) is possible at up to 1/8000 second with no recycle time, making it ideal for fast moving subjects such as dancers or gymnasts.
Check out the video below to see just how powerful and versatile the AEOS II is, and get some behind the scenes insights.
