The Aputure Light Storm LS300X LED Light Kit from Sydney Camera Hire is the first Aputure light to go beyond traditional bi-color lighting by utilizing the expanded vari-white CCT range of 2700-6500K, providing warmer tungsten tones and cooler than daylight whites. The brilliant light can be dimmed from a potent main light to a subtle, nuanced fill light, flicker free across the dimming range.The Controller Box attached to the LS300X head with a 9.8-foot head extension cable, so adjusting settings is effortless regardless of where the light is set. The self-regulating , multi-voltage controller also operates using single or dual Gold mount batteries, suitable for lighting in remote locations.
With the Fresnel 2X, the LS 300x can produce over 56,000 lux at 1 meter, creating a stunningly bright light, with CCT control always at your fingertips. By having the ability to use lensed modifiers like the Fresnel 2X or the Spotlight Mount, in addition to soft light modifiers like the Light Dome II, you can achieve extreme lighting precision to match any shooting environment. Spot, flood, cut, or diffuse your light without worrying about unwanted artifacts while controlling your white point.
Combining the latest optical color-blending technology with Aputure’s dual-color LED chipset provides an unprecedented flexibility from a single LED fixture. A specially-designed color-blending optical element in front of the chipset combines the LED output into a single cohesive point light source. The highly-efficient light output renders at CRI 95, TLCI 98, plus higher than industry standard SS1 85, and D55-SSI 74 ratings. This level of efficiency means colors and skin tones will be reproduced with an extremely-high degree of accuracy.
Intuitive local controls and a bright LCD display on the Controller Box allow precise and repeatable setups locally. In addition, the output may be controlled using the included 2.4 GHz wireless remote, or the light may be integrated into a DMX network via the 5-pin XLR in/out ports. Also, thanks to Aputure’s integrated Sidus Mesh network chipset, all the 300X’s functions may be controlled by the Sidus Link app, free to download for iOS and Android portable devices. The app also allows saving presets, adjusting/triggering lighting effects, luminance, and CCT, as well as installation of firmware updates, all from your smartphone or tablet.
