Rotolight NEO is a compact and versatile on-camera, bi-color LED light that delivers a 50-degree beam angle, soft light output, and Rotolight’s signature ring-light effect. The color temperature of the light is adjustable from 3150K to 6300K in ten-degree Kelvin steps using a rear rotary knob. A second rotary knob lets you dim the light from 100% to 0% output with no color shift or flicker at any frame rate. An electronic display on the back is provided for fast and confident color tuning. At full output, the 120 LEDs produce a peak brightness of 1077 lux at 3′ yet draw only 9W of power.
The light is powered by six AA batteries, providing up to 5 hours of continuous use (or 3 hours at 100% power). It can also be powered using the included AC adapter or an optional D-Tap power cable. The light has a 1/4″-20 threaded mounting hole and includes a cold-shoe mount.

Today’s Deal is one of my favorite deal in a long time since this ikan Piatto PL60 6″ Flat Panel LED Light is a HUGE BARGAIN even at the full list price!
It’s small and thin enough to fit easily into your camera bag – yet it packs a powerful punch!
The 6″ ikan Piatto PL60 LED Accent Light is a daylight-balanced beauty or wash light that employs edge light technology for extra soft output. Three-hundred tiny LEDs point inward towards the light’s frame where prisms reroute it through diffusion material that remains completely free of LED hot spots.
The PL60’s slim 1/2″ profile, 1 lb weight and aluminum housing make it an ideal location light for a wide variety of shooting environments. For that reason the AC/DC light comes with Panasonic, Sony, and Canon battery plates, as well as a 120 VAC adapter. The 5,600K daylight-balanced head dims from 10-100% and has a high CRI of 94 for accurate rendering of colors and subtle hues. Four 1/4″-20 taps are located on the unit’s frame to accept accessories like the included 5/8″ stand mount.

Save $55 on Westcott 7′ Parabolic Umbrellas and get a Free Westcott Umbrella Diffuser (Order Here)
This modifier is just the tool for a really big, broad light source that wraps light around your subject for clean highlights and rich open shadows. Due to the special shape of the umbrella there’s a unique mix of soft enveloping light with the kind of crisp detail you only get from reflectors. If you combined a beauty dish with a softbox, you’d have a parabolic umbrella.
• Measures 7.25′ (2.2m) in diameter
• Constructed using 16 durable fiberglass ribs
• Double wall shaft is engineered with double the thickness of most umbrellas
• 7mm tapered umbrella shaft tip
• Carry case with shoulder strap is lightweight and constructed of heavy-duty nylon
This umbrella has a unique structural design. The shaft is double walled for strength, but it tapers to 7mm to fit Elinchrom and other European flash heads. Insert the shaft into the tilt bracket below the Elinchrom head. Older models or other brands may require separate purchase of an inexpensive umbrella mount. Instead of bendable metal, the 16 inner ribs are made of durable fiberglass and the fixed black backing ensures that all of the light output is on your subject instead of through the umbrella. You can vary the light-to-umbrella distance along the shaft for a harder or softer light. This silver version is ideal for throwing the light over a long distance. Two of them could easily light a large group.
If you follow my lighting tips you know that one of my favorite lighting modifiers is a Elinchrom Octabank, but if can’t afford its $1,100 price tag, you can get a similar results from from this Westcott 7′ Parabolic Silver Umbrella with Umbrella Diffuser.
