With a much smaller form factor there is no issue with it in the Apollo Medium.
Neither is there a problem in portrait mode with the Apollo Strip.
However it can’t be said when the Apollo Strip is in landscape mode as it is a bit tight.
What I don’t know is how hot they will get with the front diffusion in place. I’m hoping they will be okay as the light does get warm running at 100%.
While I was playing with the light I thought I might as well see what readings my Sekonic C-700R would give me with the light in CCT mode.
The next thing for me to test is the flash function.
4 June 2022 Just checking out the shadow and the reflection/catch light the NEO 3 creates has given me a thought about if I need to get the Diffuser Dome or the barn doors.
As you can see, using the light bare gives you a reflection in which you can see the individual elements of the light. This also gives you multiple shadows which is a feature of lights that have more than one array.
Taping a Lee 129 Heavy Frost filter in front of the light solves the problem.
So do I get the dome to permanently fix the issue or do I get the barn doors to be able to clip the Lee 129 Heavy Frost filter. The dome is £49.98 and the barn doors are £132.98.
Obviously, there isn’t this problem if I just use the Westcott Apollo modifiers. But this would be fairly restricting in where I could place the light. Being able to place this light into positions which I don’t need a lot of rigging is what attracted me to it.
