The official information says:
Introducing the new Rotolight AEOS — a powerful, ultra-portable, bi-colour LED light that brings tremendous versatility to any shoot. Designed for portrait and location photographers and videographers on the move, AEOS is a bi-colour, location LED light with a unique ‘ultra-thin’ design concept. Weighing in at under 1.5kg and just 1cm(<1”) thick, AEOS is one of the most portable lights on the market.
Featuring a powerful light output (5750 lux @ 3ft), industry leading colour accuracy (CRI:96+) for perfect skin tones, and unrivalled battery performance (3 hours on a single 95 w/h battery), AEOS is the ultimate light for any location shoot.
Uniquely, AEOS includes integrated aluminium handles, giving you the freedom to ‘work the light’ to achieved your desired lighting setup. A high quality professional ball head is also included as standard, providing full 360° rotation and 200° of tilt when mounted on a light stand.
AEOS simply eliminates the need for time consuming lighting setups, providing you more time to unleash your creativity, and to compose the perfect shot.
High Speed Sync Flash(HSS) provides a powerful HSS flash mode with zero recycle time at 200% of the maximum continuous light output for traditional photographic workflows, enabling you to ‘freeze action’. This feature eliminates the need for users shooting both stills and video to buy a strobe, as it provides an all-in-one solution.
CineSFX™ provides a suite of customizable cinematic lighting effects, such as lightning, fire and TV flicker to enhance your video production.
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.
Designer Fade™ provides custom fade up/down production effects for interviews.
AccuColour™ LED phosphor technology ensures the AEOS delivers exceptional colour rendering (CRI:96+, TLCI 91)eliminating the need to spend time and money correcting colour and skin tones in post production.
