Digital Camera World Verdict

Rotolight has packed the technology and features of its award-winning Titan X2 RGBWW LED light panel into the new Titan X1 which is a lot more portable and cheaper to buy. You can set any color you like, including white, dial in electronically-adjustable diffusion, use special effects for filmmaking and even use it as a high-speed flash. It’s a great tool for hybrid stills photographers and filmmakers.

The Rotolight Titan X1 is pitched at a growing and broadening market. With more stills photographers enjoying the benefits of continuous light, especially those who are edging towards filmmaking, an LED light panel makes a lot of sense. And of course, for serious video users, it’s an essential buy.
