Small, but Mighty
Rotolight continues to push on-camera lighting technology forward with the release of the incredibly compact yet super bright NEO 3. Blending continuous RGBWW LED technology with flash functionality-including high-speed sync-allows hybrid shooters to enjoy one powerful lighting solution for all their work.
Extremely Bright & Pocket-Sized
The NEO 3's small form factor is no indication of its output. It is 3 stops brighter than its predecessor with a measured output of 5,443 lux at 3.3' in continuous mode or 10,700 lux when set to flash. This will give both photographers and videographers the ability to better control the look of their subject.

As for size, the NEO 3 is small and designed for use on camera with a form factor that measures just 5.7" in diameter and is under 2" thick. A weight of 12.5 oz makes sure you aren't weighed down.

High-Speed RGB Flash
Having access to full RGB lighting with 16.7 million colors increases the versatility of the NEO 3. Plus, you can use it in flash mode. This allows you to use the NEO 3 as a key, fill, or colored accent to create distinct looks in your images and video. The flash functionality is on par with traditional lights as it can sync at up to 1/8,000 second shutter speed. A huge plus of the NEO 3 is that it does not require any recycle time, permitting for rapid fire imaging without any loss in light quality or power.

Color accuracy is just as important, if not more important, than variety and the NEO 3 achieves a TLCI rating of 99. This ensures accurate rendering of your subjects. If you use filters, the light offers 2500 digital options based on those from LEE and Rosco.

Intuitive Controls
On the back of the NEO 3 are all the controls you need to operate the light. Two physical knobs alongside a color touchscreen allow you to access any of your needed settings. Save presets to quickly recall your favorite modes. Plenty of other specialized modes are available, too. You can quickly create special effects such as lightning, fire, or stick to more conventional CCT (3,000-10,000K) and HSI options.

The light uses battery power via standard NP-F style packs. These batteries are available in multiple sizes and provide long runtimes.

Wireless Sync & Operation
While on-camera operation is a key advantage of the NEO 3 it is just as comfortable off camera. The fixture has built-in wireless support using Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for Rotolight HSS and Elinchrom Skyport transmitters as well as a 3.5mm sync port for wired devices.

Rotolight does make iOS and Android apps for even more control over the NEO 3, including multiple lights at the same time. These apps are able to communicate with lights as long as they are on the same Wi-Fi network.

Starter Bundle
The base model of the NEO 3 comes configured as a Starter Bundle with all the essential pieces you need to use the light.

  • NEO 3 LED Light
  • Rechargeable Battery Pack
  • Soft Carrying Case

Optional accessories are available for using both direct modifiers and third-party options, including those with a standard Bowens S mount.

what is the max output light we can in lumens? does it flashes all the time with burst mode like 10fps/20fps when taking pictures?
Asked by: rama krishna
Unfortunately, Rotolight does not list the output of the Rotolight NEO 3 LED Starter Bundle Light Kit measured in lumens. They list the output measured in foot-candles and lux. The brightness output in foot-candles is 421.9 fc, while the output in Lux would be 4541 lux at 3.3 feet (1 meter). The flash should work in burst mode, but as the date/time of this reply, Rotolight does not indicate the maximum burst speed compatible for use with the NEO 3 LED light fixture.
