Rotolight AEOS Goes Wireless

News Image
Rotolight has announced that its groundbreaking all-in-one High Speed Sync (HSS) Flash and continuous LED lighting innovation 'AEOS', now features an integrated Elinchrom Skyport 2.4Ghz HSS wireless flash receiver.

This upgrade to the AEOS sees Rotolight once again collaborating with Elinchrom to strengthen the benefits and functionality of its innovative product range. The addition of the wireless flash receiver eliminates the need for a standalone flash receiver, and ensures rock-solid reliability and flexibility for controlling multiple off camera lighting setups. It also enables users to wirelessly control the colour temperature and brightness of every light in the setup, saving time on shoot.

The AEOS can be simultaneously a continuous light and High Speed Sync (HSS) flash, allowing the photographer to easily acquire focus in dimly lit situations and optimise composition. Designed for portrait photographers and videographers on the go, AEOS provides the 'shoot what you see' benefits of continuous light, and the flexibility of HSS flash (1/8000th sec.) with 200% flash output, whenever users need more power or to freeze action.

Unlike traditional strobe, AEOS has no recycle time, which ensures users never miss a shot, making it the perfect light choice for today's modern high-frame-rate-capable cameras.

"The Elinchrom Skyport represents the best-in-class wireless HSS triggering technology. The inclusion into our product range, first the NEO 2 and now the AEOS, provides creative imagemakers with a unique innovative feature set, unrivalled consistency and reliability,” says Rod Aaron Gammons, managing director of Rotolight.

Skyport enables users to wirelessly control up to 10 lights, in four groups at up to 200m (656ft) with the new Rotolight HSS transmitter, optimised for Rotolight by Elinchrom. This feature will also enable mixed light setups, for example with the AEOS as a key-light and the award-winning NEO 2 as a backlight, from a single transmitter.

The AEOS, launched in May, is already a firm favourite with portrait photographers and filmmakers and it has already been nominated for a number of major awards, including Lucie Technical award and Pro Moviemaker's Gear of the Year award. The location light features integrated aluminium handles, which gives users the freedom to 'work the light' at angles and positions not otherwise possible.

Jason Lanier, Sony Artisan of Imagery and award-winning Photographer, said: "The Rotolight AEOS is really the ultimate light for location and portrait photographers who want something powerful, yet portable and easy to carry, with a beautiful soft light output. AEOS will simply enable you to get shots no one else can."

Packed with innovative features for video users, AEOS is also ideal for interviews and filmmaking. It includes a suite of customisable CineSFX™ effects, Rotolight's award-winning feature set for video productions/ filmmaking, (fire, lightning, TV, gunshot, paparazzi and others), as well as Designer Fade mode for custom in-camera fade FX, all of which are now wirelessly triggerable.

AEOS with Elinchrom integration is shipping now and remains priced at $995/ £899 (including VAT), and is available for Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Panasonic, and, shortly, Fuji camera systems. AEOS is compatible with all other Elinchrom Skyport devices. Rotolight is also offering existing AEOS customers the opportunity to take advantage of the relationship with Elinchrom, by providing a free Elinchrom external flash receiver when purchasing a Rotolight HSS transmitter.
