Aputure Light Storm C300d LED Light
From: $65.00 plus insurance and GST
The Aputure LS C300d is the brightest LED light in the Light Storm series. Boasting an impressive 48000 lux @ 0.5m with its included reflector, it can also reach an incredible 142000 lux @ 0.5m with our fresnel mount (with camera settings set to f/36, 1/200 shutter, and ISO 800). Approximately equivalent in output to that of a traditional 2k tungsten or 400w HMI.
A Chip on Board (COB) designed fixture with a 5500K colour temperature, it consumes only 300W of power while outputting 4451 fc of light with a standard reflector at a distance of 0.5m. In addition to power efficiency, this fixture also has a CRI rating of 95 and a TLCI rating of 96, indicating an accurate rendering of colour.
Seen but not heard, the LS300 is ideal for sound sensitive environments. The intelligent cooling system employs temperature sensitive fans to regulate the heat. Even at maximum power the fan is undetectable by most people.
The reflector and accessory mount is the widely used Bowens S-Type, and the wired controller is also separated from the body of the light, making it lighter and reducing its size. An included wireless remote allows you to control on/off and dimming functions from as far away as 150m.
Thanks to its 110-240 VAC power supply the C300d is able to be used not only in New Zealand and Australia but worldwide. You can also use V-Mount battery plates for external battery power (NOT INCLUDED) when mains current is unavailable. This LS C300d is delivered with a carrying bag to protect the light during travel and storage.
Impressive 48,000 lux @ 0.5m output with its included reflector, the LS C300d can also reach an impressive 142,000 lux @ 0.5 m with an optional Fresnel attachment (with camera settings set to f/36, 1/200 shutter, and ISO 800).
Features a CRI rating of 95+ and a TLCI rating of 96+, allowing for extremely precise colour accuracy, making it ideal for broadcast video, photography, television production, and studio filmmaking.
High output and colour fidelity without any compromise to weight. (Though its output is comparable to that of a 2000W tungsten fixture, the LS C300d weighs just 2.1 kg, while a 2000W tungsten fixture weighs nearly 10kg. The LS C300d also simplifies the once-complicated and heavy process of using light shaping accessories, making it possible to modify your light using just one hand)
Bowens universal mount design, allowing for a wide variety of available accessories, including but certainly not limited to Fresnel, Light Dome, and Space Light modifiers.
Comes shipped in a space-efficient and portable canvas bag. The canvas bag not only protects the light, it keeps all its accessories organised in a single place – ideal for the mobile, on-the-go shooter.
Intelligent temperature control system. The smart fans come with advanced internal thermometers and vary their speeds based on the system’s temperature. Even at maximum speed, the fans are impressively quiet and keep the light from getting too hot, eliminating the need for grip gloves.
Aircraft grade aluminium body, the LS C300d is tough and durable. More than 100 fabrication procedures such as extrusion, cutting, trim, sandblasting, and laser engraving are employed.
Intuitive control box allows you to change things like brightness, remote channels and fan speeds. With a control box that is separated from the light’s power ballast, top weight is greatly reduced, allowing for maximum portability.
492′ Wireless Remote Control. With 2.4 GHz FSK technologies, the LS C300d can power on or off or adjust brightness wirelessly, even at distances up to 150 m.
Dual Power Solutions via AC, or for location shoots you can mount V-Mount batteries (NOT INCLUDED), eliminating the need for a costly generator.
Can run off 2 x V mount batteries (not included) with 12A continuous current supply – recommended 150W hours.
(Recommend =190wh battery for better performance)
Our 160W Swit V-lock batteries will run this light for around 2 and a half hours at 80% output.
