The Photography News Award, chosen following thousands of public votes cast from the photography community, recognises the innovative design and industry-first features of the light, and was awarded to Rotolight over stiff competition from the Profoto A1, Sony A9 and Fujifilm GFX.
Launched in 2017, the NEO 2 is pioneering all in one High Speed Sync (HSS) Flash and continuous on-camera LED, designed specifically for portrait photographers and videographers on the go. NEO 2 can be simultaneously a continuous ‘modelling light’ and HSS flash, allowing the photographer to easily acquire focus in dimly lit situations and optimise composition.
“NEO 2 delivers unrivalled versatility and creative options for photographers and videographers alike, and with no recycle time, it ensures users never miss a shot, making it the perfect light choice for today’s modern high-frame-rate-capable cameras. We are honoured to have been recognised for this innovation, particularly as this was voted for by thousands of photographers all over the world, who now use NEO 2 as an integral part of their workflow” says Rod Aaron Gammons, MD, Rotolight.
The NEO 2, as well as the rest of the award-winning Rotolight product range including AEOS and Anova PRO 2, will be on display at The Photography Show on Stand D150 from 17-20 March at The NEC, Birmingham.
