By utilizing the latest in Aputure COB LED technology, the Aperture Light Storm 300d Mark II outputs a whopping 20% more light than its predecessor.When combined with the Fresnel 2X, the 300d Mark II can produce up to 80,000 lux @ 1m, approaching the luminance of a 575W HMI. The 300d Mark II also introduces new design features, while maintaining the same form factor and lightweight aircraft aluminium body as the original 300d.
Expanded Key Features:
A More Robust Lamp Head
The new yoke allows for 360° of rotation, and when combined with the handbrake locking mechanism from the 120d Mark II, you’ll be able to mount the light in any position, with any Bowens mount modifier.
Max Efficiency with Hyper Reflector
The 300d Mark II is also the first Aputure light to feature the all-new, hyper efficient 55° reflector. By slightly narrowing the beam from 60° to 55° and redesigning the inner shape and coating of the reflector, we were able to increase the output of the 300d II by more than 3 times, when compared to the original design.
A Revolutionary Design
The real advancement is in the complete redesign of the control box. By utilising Aputure’s fan-less heatsink design, the 300d Mark II’s all-in-one control box is now completely silent. It is also the first product to utilise Aputure’s new quick release plate and clamp system, allowing you to firmly secure it on any stand, truss, or speed rail.
New Control Features:
The control box of the 300d Mark II features 8 built-in lighting FX: "Paparazzi", "Spark", "Lightning", "Faulty Bulb", "TV", "Pulse", "Flash", and "Explosion", with more coming in future firmware updates via the control boxes USB interface. The control box also features a new“ trigger” button to activate lighting FX instantly.
Sidus Link App Control
Featuring all-new Bluetooth SIG mesh network technology, the 300d Mark II is also the first app-controllable Aputure lighting fixture.* This technology will allow you to control a 300d Mark II from up to 400 meters away, by linking multiple lights up to 80 meters apart. Using the Sidus Link app, you’ll be able to access all of the functions of the control box, in addition to being able to save presets, finely tune and trigger additional lighting FX, as well as install firmware updates, all from your smartphone or tablet.
Power Solutions for Indie Filmmakers
The 300d Mark II can produce its maximum output by using two high capacity V-Mount or Gold Mount batteries, but it also features new technology that allows you to power the light with a single battery at up to half output. You can use this light anywhere your filmmaking takes you.
The included 6m NEUTRIK® cable provides the 300d II with a sturdy power connection and allows you the convenience of not having to grab a stinger to power your light. And now, by utilizing a standard 3m male-to-female 5-pin XLR, you can easily replace the header cable in a pinch. An optional 7.5m 5-pin XLR is also available, letting you keep your control box within arm’s reach while giving you the ability to rig your light anywhere you want, from a menace arm to a tall goalpost rig.

The approval of your application depends on your financial circumstances and borrowing history. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photo Video act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
