Any option to the rotolight Neo2? Any other flash work in HSS? Tue, 27 Nov 2018 09:20:53 -0700 Manu4Vendetta 20997@/talks/discussions I have seen many tests of photos and videos made with this light and I like the result, Its awesome. Works as a continuous light for video/cine and as a flash.

The only thing negative is the price, isnt cheap, but its price is not bad either, the other problem is that the transmitter costs almost 80% than the Neo2 costs: Neo2 U$325-400, transmitter HSS U$250, total U$ 550-625 too much.

I'm not sure if any other transmitter will allow synchronization in flash mode for high speed, at that point one could save money because the price of the transmitter is very very very excessive.

The othe question is if there a similar light with good CRI, portable what dont need electrical connection and at the same time be a flash and continuous light. The only thing I know so efficient but only as a high power flash and portability is the Godox AD200.

FalconEyes Bi-Color LED Panel RX-12TD / RX-18TD Sun, 27 Aug 2017 16:12:30 -0600 peaceonearth 17620@/talks/discussions I purchased one each.

Pro: lightweight, very flexible, good price, bi-color

Cons: 5600K is 5100K only and a tad greenish. Needs a big battery when mobile powered >160W. Even the small 50W RX-12TD, doesn't power at all with less. It seems the controller draws a lot of power. Doesn't hit airline regulations with the big batteries.

Making cheap studio LED light Wed, 15 Nov 2017 08:45:37 -0700 Vitaliy_Kiselev 18240@/talks/discussions First you need 5xsockets kit with softbox (or pair) and stand


Look at ones with individual socket switches on the back ala Neewer. Still sometimes you could fit only 4 bulbs, In this case you could need E26 to E26 (in EU it is E27) socket extender.


After this you need to get packs of LED bulbs

Lower CRI ones

High 90+ CRI Ones

So totally it'.. be $100 for 80W of CRI 95 light, not bad.
