FIX NEO Mini 1000 SWR - The FIX NEO Mini series represents the Next Generation of compact photo/video lights; multiple Spot/Wide/Red beams, interchangeable battery, and micro USB recharging.
Three Beams - One Light
The FIX NEO Mini 1000 SWR has a beautiful 100° wide beam cast in even arching smooth beam with no hotspots or edge drop-off. A pair of Mini’s provide an excellent solution for most of todays demanding wide-angle lenses. From action camera to DLSR, a multiple lighting with the Mini 1000’s SWR’s wide beams provides the coverage to get the video of your dreams.
Spot mode made easy! Just a single press of the NEO’s control button and NEO’s beam angle switches from 100° to 30° 600 lumen spot beam, perfect for macro photo/video. The Mini’s narrow spot beam works to isolate small subjects from their background. Leaving the background of your composition unlit and dark provides excellent contrast to highlight the foreground subject.
Red beam is particularly useful for night photography where red is less disruptive to night animals allowing the photographer to get closer to their subjects. Just one more press of the NEO’s control button and NEO’s beam switches to100° 50 lumen red beam.
That little round opening below the two red LEDs may seem innocuous but its full of magic! The Auto Shut-Off (ASO) of the NEO Mini detects the flash from a strobes and automatically shuts off the Mini's red or white light output. This feature frees the photographer from the need to dim their focus light to avoid undesirable side effects in the photo. Without dimming a traditional focus light, you can wind up with excess or conflicting shadows or an undesirable red cast in your photos. With the ASO feature those concerns no longer exist. After about 1 second from the ASO, the Neo Mini turns on again allowing you to capture the next series of shots.
Battery Status Indicator
Highly visible and easy to read, the NEO Mini's battery status indicator needs only a glance to know if its ready to dive. The indicator status, green/red/flashing, indicates approximately how much run time is remaining to keep you shooting, not guessing.
USB Charging with CR123 Back Up
What easier way to travel and charge your NEO Mini's 18650
Li-ion battery than with the world standard Micro-USB connectivity. Charge the battery from your laptop, with a wall adapter, or any other standard USB connector. That's one less specialized charger to pack and travel with. And in the event you want more run time or need back up, the Mini's battery pack can be replaced with two common CR123 batteries.
The NEO can be used on the surface. It has an automatic power reduction mode when the light gets hot so you do not have to worry about damaging the light while preparing for a night dive or after finishing the and exiting the water.
