The Light Storm LS C120t LED Light with Gold Mount from Aputure is a chip-on-board (COB) design fixture with a 3000K color temperature. The result of this technology is extremely accurate color rendering of 97+ CRI and a 97+ TLCI (Television Lighting Consistency Index) rating.

The LS C120t can be seen but not heard: ideal for sound sensitive environments. The intelligent cooling system employs temperature sensitive fans to regulate the heat. There's also an auto/force button that triggers maximum cooling. In any case, even at maximum power, the fan noise doesn't exceed 18dB: basically the sound of a person breathing.The LS C120t's performance is backed up by its design. The all-aluminum construction goes through over a hundred fabrication steps. The reflector and accessory mount is the widely used Bowens S-type, and the wired controller is also separated from the body of the light, making it lighter and reducing its size. There's also an included wireless remote that allows you to control on/off and dimming functions from as far away as 328'. The LS C120t is ready for worldwide use thanks to its 110-240 VAC power supply. You can also use its onboard Gold Mount battery plate for external battery power when mains power is unavailable.

Immaculate Lighting

The LS C120t features a CRI 97+ with a 3000K color temperature. Additionally, its TLCI also has been measured at up to 97+. TLCI or Television Lighting Consistency Index is the accurate measurement of color fidelity of a light source for broadcast use; it shows how light source will render colors well in a film or photography context. Therefore, the LS C120t will display natural, pristine color in both photo and video applications.

Auto/Force Model Powerful Temperature Control

The LS C120t has a remarkably intelligent temperature control system. The fans rotation will be varied based on the ambient temperature. Furthermore, the fan will go to the maximum of speed when you press the auto/force mode. This complex fan system is convenient for both improving the dissipation efficiency and light lifespan.

Amazingly Quiet

Most lights utilizing a fan system are too loud and not suitable for film or video production, however, the LS C120t with its built-in electric fan produces only 18dB noise like a person's normal breathing. That means fan noise is negligible, even if your LS C120t runs at maximum output.

Professional Bowens Mount

LS C120t uses a popular industry design of professional Bowens-S mount which is incredibly flexible when mounting to various accessories.

Portable and Lightweight

Portable and lightweight are two characteristics many photographers and filmmakers can appreciate. The LS C120t has a weight of 3.5 lb.

Separate Light Control Operation

The LS C120t has a separate light control. This allows people to control illumination on the controller box. You will no longer operate from the back of light panel, greatly reducing time spent adjusting the light.

Ingenious Design

Featuring an aircraft grade-aluminum body, the LS C120t is remarkably tough and durable. It undergoes more than 100 fabrication procedures such as extrusion, cutting, trim, sandblasting, laser engraving, etc. The delicate design and elaborate production makes the LS C120t fashionable and robust.

Effective Battery Power Solution

The LS C120t is able to meet your various shooting requirements with battery mount options. The Gold Mount battery plate can be used for location shooting.

328' Wireless Remote Control

Using 2.4G FSK technologies, the LS C120t can power on or off or adjust brightness wirelessly, even 328' away.

Assisted Handgrip

The LS C120t has the convenience of a handgrip that is very useful for adjusting the light's direction.

Can I connect my receiver to this light and use ...

Can I connect my receiver to this light and use my transmitter to slave? I’m looking for a light that can operate continuously and then act as strobe for other projects.
Asked by: Ali
This light is continuous only and cannot flash. For a light that can do both you could check out the AEOS

Why is the tungsten version of this light so much ...

Why is the tungsten version of this light so much cheaper? It’s almost $250 cheaper than the 120d. Yes, it is not quite as bright, but pretty close. Can the inconvenience of applying CTB gels and a resulting loss in some output, really be worth $250? I’m new to this stuff and would love some advice!
Asked by: Morgan
A CTB gel would cause about a 2 stop light loss. That is effectively a loss of 75% of the output.

I am interested in using this light along with my other daylight LED lights that are 5500K. Is there an easy gel or something I can use to match my current lights?
Asked by: Steven S.
The Rosco # 3202 Full Blue CTB Color Conversion Gel Filter (20x24 Sheet), B&H # RO3202S, would be my recommendation for your usage needs.

I use the Impact Luxbanx Small Octagonal Softbox (36 ) for this light but cannot find a good speed ring to mount to the light. I tried the Impact speed ring for Bowens mount and it is just slightly too short to attach to the light. What is a good Bowens mount speedring?
Asked by: Scott W.
The Photoflex Speed Ring for Bowens, Impact B&H # PHSRBT would be another good option to consider.

How many of Aputure Light Storm LS C120t LED Lights can be controlled with the included wireless remote?
Asked by: Anonymous
Basically an infinite amount, but you only have the four channels to put them on (a,b,c,d) so you can only control 4 groups at a time from the remote.
