Rotolight NEO 2 Explorer Kit product description

The NEO 2 Explorer Kit is an award winning lighting kit that delivers power, portability and comfort  for photographers and videographers on the go. Provided in a compact, luxurious and water resistant soft case, the Explorer Kit allows you to take your three revolutionary NEO 2s wherever you go. With a lightweight and convenient solution, create your perfect 3 light set up in just minutes for portrait photography, events or videography. 

Combining the ‘shoot what you see' benefits of continuous light, with the flexibility of High Speed Sync (HSS) flash and zero recycle time, you'll never miss a shot.  Featuring a built-in Elinchrom Skyport flash receiver, the NEO 2 delivers ultra-reliable wireless triggering (1/8000th) and control of all three lights at once up to 200m(656ft) away*. Powered by 6 AA batteries, DC or DTap, NEO 2 delivers outstanding colour reproduction, with a gorgeous soft light output and Rotolight's signature catch light effect. Packed with innovative features, NEO 2 includes True Aperture Dimming, Designer Fade and an updated arsenal of CineSFX custom lighting effects (lightning, fire, TV etc.). The NEO 2 Explorer Kit lets you create stunning results in even the most remote locations.

  • High Speed Sync Flash (HSS) provides a powerful HSS flash mode when you need more power, with zero recycle time, at up to 500%** of the maximum continuous light output for photographers. Enabling you to ‘freeze action', and shoot at wider apertures for better subject isolation, NEO 2 eliminates the need to buy two separate products if you shoot both stills and video, as it provides an all-in-one solution.
  • Unrivalled battery performance - the longest battery life of an on camera flash ever made. NEO 2 provides 85,000 full power shots on a single set of AA batteries (not included) vs 250 of a typical speedlight. You'll never be down on the job. 
  • AccuColour LED technology ensures the NEO 2 delivers exceptional colour rendering for gorgeous skin tones (CRI:96+, TLCI 91) eliminating the need for post processing. 
  • True Aperture Dimming calculates and displays F-stop for a subject at a given distance, eliminating the need for trial and error shooting, or a light meter.
  • CineSFX provides a suite of customizable cinematic lighting effects, such as lightning, fire, gunshot, paparazzi and TV flicker to enhance your video production.
  • Designer Fade provides custom fade up/down production effects for interviews.
  • Award Winning :  NEO 2 has been recognised for its innovation with several major awards including the Digital Camera World Best on Test and Gold Award; Photography News Innovation Award; Practical Photography's Best Lighting Award; and Testbench Recommended award by Amateur Photographer.
