Thanks. This is what I thought. Man, I liked his old videos where he was showing nice 12x12 scrim jim etc. Then when he lied to the ranger in SF bay area shooting a local model, I didn't like it all. That was totally wrong. Why put that part of the video on youtube. Now if I shoot same place and even though I am just a hobbyist, ranger going to ask me for permit. And then this pushing Neo2 knowing well inside that light is not powerful enough. I am not saying light is not good for when you just need a little bit of light but talks like HSS, shooting in the sun, come on.

I would point out too that the >1ft square surface area of the Rotolight is not particularly "diffused" at all, except at macro distances. So if it's not bright enough to send though a scrim or bounce off an umbrella, it's again nowhere touching the capability of a good powerful flash.
