Regular readers of this blog, know that I really like Rotolight’s LED lighting products, especially the versatile RL-48N, which I’ve written about using here and here. Since its photokina week, I want to include some of the new products launched this week, starting with Rotolight’s NEO. I hope to have an early production version in my hands-on to show some hands-on usage.
