The Latest In Aputure Chip On Board LED Technology
By applying the latest in Aputure Chip On Board (COB) LED technology, the Aputure 300d Mark II:
- Outputs an enormous 20% more light than its precursor;
- When united with the Fresnel 2X, the 300D Mark II can yield up to 80,000 lux, approaching the luminance of a 575W HMI.
- 5500K colour temperature balance led studio light preserves immaculate colour reliability with CRI and TLCI ratings of 96+ and 97+ correspondingly.
- Has a power consumption of just 350W, while outputting 3500 lux of light with an efficient reflector at a distance of 9.8′.
3x Increased Output
The Aputure 300D II is also the foremost Aputure light to feature the all-new, hyper resourceful 55° reflector. By thinning the beam from 60° to 55° and restructuring the internal form and coating of the reflector, they were able to increase the output of the 300D II by more than 3 times, when equated to the original design.
The 300D II is ready for global use thanks to its 110-240 VAC power supply. It also has two battery plates, allowing you to use V-Mount batteries for exterior power when mains current is inaccessible. The Aputure 300D II can produce its maximum output by using two high capacity V‐Mount or Gold Mount batteries. It also features new technology that lets you power the light with a single battery at up to half output. You get the convenience of not having to grab a stinger to power your light.
