I admit, as a photographer on the go I have a thing for portable strobes and LED lights that have enough power to make me forget that I’m not using my studio strobes. Luckily, lighting companies keep answering my prayers and continue to come up with low profile lighting solutions for the traveling photographer. The new AEOS Rotolight combines lightweight capabilities, a powerful LED and strobe light combination, aluminum handles and a 360 degree ball head for maximum movement and creativity. Per their website:
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.
