The Aputure LS C300d is the biggest and brightest light we’ve ever made. Winner of several awards (including Best Lighting Product at NAB), the LS C300d is a game changing COB light, boasting extremely powerful output, an advanced cooling system, portable build, and a TLCI rating of over 96.
The 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). This level of illumination is approximately equivalent in output to that of a traditional 2k tungsten or 400w HMI.
Shining bright at 5500K, the LS C300d casts a powerful light that is both natural looking and pristine in color 1. The LS C300d features not only a CRI rating of 95+, but a TLCI rating of 96+, allowing for extremely precise color accuracy making it perfect for broadcast video, photography, television production, and studio film making.
Portable and Lightweight
LS C300d maintains its incredibly high output and color fidelity without any compromise to weight. Though its output is comparable to that of a 2000W tungsten lamp, the LS C300d weighs less than a quarter of that. Easily held with one hand, the LS C300d weighs just 2.1kg (4.6 lbs) while a 2000W tungsten lamp weighs over 9kg (nearly 20 lbs). 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.
The LS C300d utilizes the universal mount design, allowing for a wide variety of available accessories, including but certainly not limited to Fresnel, Light Dome, and Space Light.
All-in-One Canvas Bag
The LS C300d comes shipped in an efficient and portable canvas bag. The canvas bag not only protects the light, but also keeps all of its pieces organized in a single bag, perfect for the mobile and on-the-go shooter.
Note: To meet the long-distance shooting requirement, 20ft power extension cable is available for purchase! (The length of original power cable is 6ft.). It's also adapt to LS C120d/C120t.
Intelligent Temperature Control
The LS C300d has a remarkably intelligent temperature control system. Our smart fans come with advanced internal thermometers and vary their speeds based on the system’s temperature. Even at maximum speed, these fans are impressively quiet and keep the light from getting too hot, eliminating the need for grip gloves.
Featuring an aircraft-grade aluminum body, the LS C300d is remarkably tough and durable. It is engineered with 100 fabrication procedures including extrusion, cutting, trimming, sandblasting, oxidation, laser engraving and more. This comprehensive and elaborate production process makes the LS C300d sleek in design, yet robust in build.
Independent Lighting Controls
The LS C300d is built to give you maximum control over your light. The light’s easy-to-use and 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.
150m Wireless Remote Control
Using 2.4G FSK technology, the LS C300d can be adjusted in brightness wirelessly using a remote up to 150m away.
