At NAB 2013, Digital Journal took a look at RTS Rotolight's advanced LED lighting system. Mike Stango showed us how easy it was to set up a powerful lighting system for the videographer or photographer when he or she is on the go.
What we liked about the kit is that it was compact, easy to carry around and set up. When the filter was applied, it provided a smoothing and warming affect to the subjects being filmed. The Rotolight runs on three double AA batteries which make it simple to power up and replace as needed. The kit comes with many filters which are simple to change and sit inside the Rotolight so there is no need to worry about a container to house them.
