Aputure has introduced the LS 600d Pro, the latest addition to its Light Storm COB product line, and the F10 Fresnel, a Bowens Mount Fresnel made to match the size of traditional 10" Fresnel lights. When combined with the LS 600d Pro, the F10 Fresnel can output more than 29,300 lux at 9.8'.
With only a 720-watt maximum power draw, the Aputure LS 600d Pro approaches the brightness of 1200-watt HMIs at a fraction of their total energy consumption, allowing users to power more than one from a single household circuit. In addition, the fixture draws power from both V & Gold Mount cinema batteries; its multi-voltage battery plates make it compatible with 14.4-, 26- and 28.8-volt batteries. The battery plates also enable the LS 600d Pro to recharge batteries when plugged into AC power between scenes. The control box can also accept 48-volt (15A) DC power via 3-pin XLR, allowing it to be powered via external battery power stations or block batteries.
The Aputure LS 600d Pro lists for $1,890.
Now available for preorder, the Aputure F10 Fresnel features a 250mm-diameter lens made of real glass and enables users to achieve punchy hard light that maintains a subtle soft quality. Its dual-lens optical design utilizes a condenser lens to refocus the light from a flat-chip COB LED to optimize it for the front Fresnel element, further enhancing the fixture’s illuminance.
To ergonomically and precisely adjust its variable 15-45° beam angle, the F10 Fresnel uses Aputure’s helicoid focus design from the Fresnel 2X. The F10 also incorporates a ventilation design that prevents the COB from overheating while also minimizing light leaks.
The drop-in accessory slot is compatible with Aputure’s F10 Barn Doors, which provide eight leaves to cut light from the large Fresnel.
