A couple of years ago, Aputure impacted the industry with the 300d, creating a powerful and compact LED fixture that could be modified easily. Filmmakers from around the world were impressed by the light's capabilities, but encouraged by user feedback, Aputure produced the redesigned and improved 300d Mark II. The light is 20% brighter than its predecessor, more durable, more portable, and "smarter" than the original 300d.
By utilizing the latest in Aputure COB LED technology, the 300d Mark II outputs a whopping 20% more light than its predecessor. When combined with the optional Fresnel 2X, the 300d Mark II can produce up to 80,000 lux, approaching the luminance of a 575W HMI! And as always, the 5500K-balanced 300d Mark II maintains very accurate colour fidelity with CRI/TLCI ratings of 96+.
The 300d Mark II also introduces redesigned features, while maintaining the same form factor and lightweight aircraft aluminium body as the original 300d. The latest 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 modifier.
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, Aputure was able to increase the output of the 300d II by more than 3-times, when compared to the original design.
The control box is completely redesigned. By utilizing Aputure's fan‐less heat sink design, the 300d Mark II's All-in-One control box is now completely silent. Composed of a durable aluminium alloy, with a new concealed antenna and military-grade paracord strap, the control box is ready to withstand the rigours of any film set. The 300d Mark II control box is also the first product to utilize Aputure's quick release plate and clamp system, allowing you to firmly secure it on any stand, truss, or speed rail.
The 300d Mark II can produce its maximum output by using two high-capacity V-Mount or Gold Mount batteries, but it also features advanced technology that allows you to power the light with a single battery at up to half output. The included 19.7' 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.
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 box's USB interface. The control box also features a trigger button to activate lighting FX instantly.
The long-awaited 0 to 100% stepless dimming control allows you to use the 300d II in low-light environments or to overpower the sun and can utilize any of 4 different dimming curves: Linear, Logarithmic, Exponential, and S-Curve.
The 300d Mark II also features a Studio Mode that allows the lights to turn on and be controlled immediately upon receiving power, making it ideal for DMX lighting grids.
