Aputure LS 1/2w overview

  • 1Description

Featuring a slim, 1"-thick profile, the Light Storm LS 1/2w from Aputure is a compact LED fixture that includes a dedicated controller box, which accepts Sony V type batteries for convenient, portable power. While sleek in size, the LS 1/2w is characterized by an impressive CRI of 98, along with a 120° beam angle and daylight-balanced 5500K color temperature. Aside from affording convenient battery power to the LED, the included controller box also enables wireless dimming control using the included remote, and four groups and three channels can be employed for quickly switching between different looks.

The Light Storm LS 1/2w also features durable aluminum alloy housing along with the incorporation of 264 unique SMD LEDs to offer a greater effective lifespan with maintained color quality. A manual yoke provides versatile positioning and the light control separation design, afforded by the controller box, also maintains a low center of gravity for easier placement of the fixture and easier switching of batteries during use. Additionally, ten sheets of diffusion paper are included for producing a softer, more diffuse quality of light.

  • The light's design incorporates 264 individual SMD LEDs, which enable a longer lifespan, lower brightness decay, a broad beam angle of 120°, and a high CRI of 98.
  • Daylight-balanced 5500K color temperature.
    Included controller box features a Sony V battery plate for convenient, portable power. An AC/DC cable is also included for AC power.
    The controller box, which features two 90° antennas, also permits wireless dimming control using the included 2.4 GHz remote. Four groups and three channels are also available.
  • DMX512 protocol is also supported for wireless control.
  • Aluminum alloy construction is both durable and sleek for use in a variety of conditions.
  • Manual yoke allows for variable positioning.
  • Ten sheets of acid-free, smooth surface diffusion paper is included to broaden the light quality, reduce the output to 85%, and provide an effective 180° beam angle.
  • A LEMO-style connector is used between the controller box and light fixture for convenient, one-handed installation and removal of the included connection cable.

    Aputure LS 1/2w reviews

    Light Storm LS 1/2w LED Light with Sony V Battery Controller Box is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best light quality. I have an i1 Pro with custom software (that I wrote) to measure the spectrum of light (as well as cri, color temperature, etc). I attended Photoplus looking for LED lighting with the cleanest spectrum, and these lights were the best I found. Smoothest spectrum (no strange color shifts or dropouts), and a cri around 98 (measured). Also, the entire rear of the light is a heat sink, so continual running of the lights won't result in color or brightness shifts. Also, these lights are really bright.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Portable LED light on the market right now! I am just going to echo everything above. This light is a beast! Super bright, V mount powered for location shooting, durable, professional connections, lemo, XLR, V mount. and the price! I also have the full size LS1 and it is just as amazing as this light. I highly recommend the new lightstorm line from Aputure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but big Used for filming a conference in a banquet room and one of these small lights filled the room pretty well. Provides wide light. Super light and clean. Great light. I highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely worth the money! Even though this is the 1/2 light version it is more than cable of casting light in a wide area. Also the color temp is beautiful! Great light!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Light! I LOVE this light. The build quality is phenomenal as its mainly aluminum. The few bits of plastic are all high quality. The LED design in this light give a really wide beam of light compared to regular LED panels. This lets you light up a room without having to pull your panel back. This also makes it brighter (being closer) and softens the light. The CRI is very high so you won't have any weird color tints from cheaper units. The whole back of this panel is a heatsink allowing them to put more LED in this light and it stays cool. The control are separate from the panel so you don't have to lower the light to control it if you have it mounted high. It also comes with a remote that allows you to control multiple groups of light that works really well. If you want to see it in action do a search for Max Yuryev Light Storm and you'll find the video. I would definitely recommend this light!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable Just after a year from purchase and after very light use, this fixture started intermittently turning off during shoots. This makes for a very unprofessional situation. After contacting Aputure CS my option was to send it to China at my expense to and from and pay for repair. There was no offer to help with shipping or repair fee. I can’t count on this product for professional shoots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm on welfare and I can afford this excellent light. Being on welfare is tough. I have to make sure every dime is not wasted. I needed a light that could perform yet still be affordable. The Aputure Storm fits my criteria - and then some. I shoot with a Red Epic and I can pretty much get any look L want with this light. I have two music videos and a commercial with it and the results have been outstanding. Since I get paid under the table I have to make sure that the client is happy enough to pay me cash and without a receipt. The Aputure storm delivers!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from highly recommended I really like this light. Build quality is great, output is extremely bright and accurate, and the remote control is a great feature. The only drawback is the silly paper diffusion sheets they provide with the light. Yeah, they work, but are not durable. A much better solution would be to provide a proper diffusion panel that slips into slots on the frame of the light. I wish they included an tungsten gel, too. Otherwise, this is a great light.
