The Anova PRO 2 is a great example of a versatile LED light.

The Anova PRO 2 is a great example of how versatile LEDs can be. It’s a powerful LED that can double as a flash. As a continuous source, the Anova PRO 2 delivers 10,700 lux at 3 feet and has 70 percent more power than its predecessor (despite the 2 designation, this is actually the fourth generation of the light). As a flash, the PRO 2 supports High Speed Sync and offers zero recycle time. As far as color quality, the Anova PRO 2 has a Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 96+ and a TLCI of 91. Color temperature is adjustable from 3,150K to 6,300K in both flash and continuous modes. Like other Rotolight products, the Anova PRO 2 has a set of CineFX features that mimic the look of a flickering fireplace, lightning bolts, TV lighting, gunshots and paparazzi flashes. A True Aperture Dimming feature uses exposure information from the camera (shutter speed and ISO) plus the distance to the subject and data from the light to accurately calculate the correct aperture. Thanks to a partnership with Elinchrom, the Anova PRO 2 has a built-in Skyport wireless receiver, allowing users to trigger the light, set color temperature and brightness remotely. The light includes a gel kit, DMX and V-Lock plate.

PRICE: starting at $1,625
