Aputure has launched the Light Storm 300D, a 4.6lbs / 2.1kg LED light measuring 13.5in / 34.29cm long with up to 142,000 lux and an output equivalent to a 2,000 watts tungsten. The light can be powered with batteries or through AC power, and can be wirelessly controlled from distances up to 150m / 492ft. Control is also possible through what Aputure calls an intuitive control box.
The light’s low temperature coupled with its Bowens mount enables users to attach nearly any Bowens mount accessory (if you can find them…), according to Aputure. Additionally, an integrated ultra-silent fan works alongside internal thermometers to intelligently adjust its speed based on the light’s temperature.
Color accuracy is exceptional with a CRI rating of ≥95 and TCLI rating of ≥96 alongside a 5500K±200K color temperature.
The Light Storm 300D is currently listed on Amazon with an in-stock date of November 15th and a $1,100 USD price tag.
