The Light Storm 300X is Aputure's latest LED headlight and the first bi-color light (2700K-6500K) with Bowens Mount for attaching optical modifiers. By combining state-of-the-art color mixing technology with Aputure's dual-color LED chipset, the LS 300X can use accessories such as the Fresnel 2X or the Spotlight Mount and offers you unprecedented flexibility with a single headlight. With a simple push of a button or a switch, the white light CCT output is regulated between 2700 and 6500 Kelvin in a matter of seconds. And by using the same robust design for the lamp head and control box as the C300D II, this luminaire is ready for all cinematic challenges.
Robust Bi-Color Performance
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.
Local Control, DMX, 2.4 GHz Wireless, and Bluetooth Remote Control Options
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.
Dual Output Modes
Constant Output Mode allows precision CCT adjustment while maintaining constant luminance, and even shift color temperature seamlessly during a scene. Max Ouptut Mode will maximize CCT and dimming levels within the 4000-5500K range.
Bowens S-Mount Versatility
The integrated Bowens-S mount allows using an almost limitless number of available modifiers to narrow, diffuse, or otherwise sculpt the light to suit any application or creative vision.
