By utilizing the latest in Aputure COB LED technology, the Aputure 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 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.
