PRESS RELEASE

 

FIX Neo Mini 500 FS:

The next evolution in focus lights.

 

JULY 23, 2014 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - FORT LAUDERDALE, FL -

 

As most underwater lights continue to grow bigger, brighter and more expensive, the Neo Mini 500 stays true to the original task of providing an economical and purpose built focus light. The Neo Mini 500 provides excellent photography utility with red and white beam options, auto flash shut-off, battery indicator, and Micro-USB recharging. Combine the Neo Mini 500's features with an industry best price and that makes the Neo Mini 500 and easy choice for all photographers.

Two Beams - One Light!

Switch between red and white beams with a push of a button. White light can be more successful as a focus light when competing against the sun in daylight hours or when a subject is further away and more light is needed. The 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.



The Neo 500 Mini has several built in programmed functions. A diver controls either the red or white beams at Full, 75%, 50%, and 25% output levels. In addition, the Mini 500 features an auto detect flash off mode and a distress signaling mode.

Auto Shut-Off:

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 500 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 Mini 500 turns on again allowing you to capture the next series of shots.

Battery Status Indicator:

Highly visible and easy to read, the Mini 500'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 Mini 500 than with the world standard Micro-USB connectivity. Charge the Mini 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.
