Rotolight’s latest firmware update includes selectable fan control modes, including Silent Fan Mode designed for video users, and is fully user-controllable.
A new ‘Lux mode’ setting offers the ultimate control for both video and photo users to extract maximum performance from the light, or to achieve a constant exposure across colour temperatures depending on user preference. Maximum Lux Mode will appeal to photographers, who want to utilise the maximum power of the lights at all times, whereas Constant Lux Mode is designed for videographers and cinematographers who may wish to maintain a constant exposure (lux) regardless of the colour temperature selected.
Rotolight NEO 3 and AEOS 2 feature a touchscreen interface that provides enhanced control and saves time on set. By popular demand, a new Touchscreen Lock Mode has been added to enable the lights to be placed in any location (i.e. a fireplace), whilst preventing accidental adjustment to chosen settings. To activate, simply press and hold both knobs at the same time to lock/unlock the screen.
This update features extensive enhancements of CineSFX modes, including improved navigation of SFX controls making user customisation of SFX even more intuitive, as well as enhanced colour realism, and refinements to triggering of SFX via the wireless Elinchrom Skyport transmitter.
The Rotolight NEO 3/ AEOS 2 now includes Dynamic Multi-Language Support which offers real-time adjustment throughout all menus and displays, in native Italian, French, German, Spanish and Dutch.
These new firmware additions have been developed alongside a suite of general performance improvements and minor bug fixes, including improved battery performance in maximum flash power, and improved third-party battery support in ‘max’ flash mode.
