Aputure LS 300D overview

  • 1Description

The Light Storm LS C300d LED Light from Aputure is a Chip on Board (COB) designed fixture with a 5500K color temperature that consumes only 300W of power while outputting 4451 fc of light with a standard reflector at a distance of 1.6'. In addition to power efficiency, this fixture also has a CRI rating of 95 and a TLCI rating of 96, indicating an accurate rendering of color. And the LS C300d can be seen but not heard which is ideal for sound sensitive environments. The intelligent cooling system employs temperature sensitive fans to regulate the heat. Even at maximum power the fan is undetectable by most people.

The LS C300d's performance is backed up by its design. The all-aluminum construction goes through numerous 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 492'. The LS C300d is ready for worldwide use thanks to its 110-240 VAC power supply. It also has a battery plate allowing you to use V-mount batteries for external power when mains current is unavailable. This LS C300d is delivered with a carrying bag to protect the light during travel and storage.

Boasting an impressive 48,000 lux @ 1.6' with its included reflector, the LS C300d can also reach an impressive 142,000 lux @ 1.6' with an optional Fresnel attachment (with camera settings set to f/36, 1/200 shutter, and ISO 800).
Color Fidelity
Shining bright at 5500K, the LS C300d casts a powerful light that is both natural looking and pristine in color. The LS C300d features a CRI rating of 95+ and a TLCI rating of 96+, allowing for precise color accuracy, making it ideal for broadcast video, photography, television production, and studio filmmaking.
Portable and Lightweight
The LS C300d maintains its high output and color fidelity without any compromise to weight. Though its output is comparable to that of a 2000W tungsten fixture, the LS C300d weighs just 4.6 lb, while a 2000W tungsten fixture weighs nearly 20 lb. The LS C300d also simplifies the once-complicated and heavy process of using light shaping accessories, making it possible to modify your light using just one hand.
Professional Bowens Mount
The LS C300d utilizes the Bowens universal mount design, allowing for a wide variety of available accessories, including but certainly not limited to Fresnel, Light Dome, and Space Light modifiers.
All-In-One Canvas Bag
The LS C300d comes shipped in a space-efficient and portable canvas bag. The canvas bag not only protects the light, it keeps all its accessories organized in a single place - ideal for the mobile, on-the-go shooter.
Intelligent Temperature Control
The LS C300d has an intelligent temperature control system. The smart fans come with advanced internal thermometers and vary their speeds based on the system's temperature. Even at maximum speed, the fans are quiet and keep the light from getting too hot, eliminating the need for grip gloves.
Durable Build
Featuring an aircraft grade aluminum body, the LS C300d is tough and durable. More than 100 fabrication procedures such as extrusion, cutting, trim, sandblasting, and laser engraving are employed.
Independent Lighting Controls
The LS C300d is built to give you maximum control over your light. The light's intuitive control box allows you to change things like brightness, remote channels and fan speeds. With a control box that is separated from the light's power ballast, top weight is greatly reduced, allowing for maximum portability.
492' Wireless Remote Control
Using 2.4 GHz FSK technologies, the LS C300d can power on or off or adjust brightness wirelessly, even at distances up to 492'.
Dual Power Solutions
The LS C300d can be powered either via AC, or for location shoots you can mount 2 optional V-mount batteries, eliminating the need for a costly generator. (Recommend ≥190wh battery for better performance)

    Aputure LS 300D reviews

    Light Storm C300d LED Light Kit with V-Mount Battery Plate is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very bright, totally unreliable. �Shuts off by itself Bottom line: poor quality control. �Didn't even last a day. I found the Aputure C300d to be quite bright so I disagree with the other reviews on that front. �But that is beside the point - During a day of testing, the light failed. �It was on for an hour or so and worked great. �Later in the day, I turned it on again and it would just shut off after 10-20 sec. �Tried finding ways to reset it and different cooling modes. �The thing still wouldn't�stay on. �I reached out to the company but was not impressed with their response. �I hope they get the quality control worked out as I think this light has a lot of�potential.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Issue Resolved and I'm extremely happy This light has great value and is a perfect fit for any production (interviews, music videos, films..). The first light I had bought had some overheating issue. B&H offered me a replacement and I haven't had any issues since then. Also Aputure confirmed that the overheating issue has been since fixed on current and future batch. So that's really awesome to hear that they were able to address it. The other good news is that the replacement light came with longer cables.� Currently, I got it set up with the Aputure light dome and works wonder, nice soft light. Honestly, It will be awhile before I get another light. This is a great an investment.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light Seriously one of my favorite lights I'm using right now and I have some different lights in my lighting kit: Astra 4x, Astra 6x, Kino Flo 4' 4 Bank, Arri 650's etc etc. But this is just fun to use it's got punch and coupled with the light dome I find myself using this in a variety of situations. Essentially, it's a little less powerful then a 2k tungsten but it's awesome to have this punch LED with me on set. Pros: Light output (this is a big deal for me)� Quality of Light Cons: Construction (cheap) The 2 ballasts are pretty annoying

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Potential to be great, but unreliable I bought 2 of these, and initially I loved them. So light, portable, fairly bright, and great price. The first time I used them one would cut off on its own anywhere between 5-60minutes. Thought maybe I had 1 dud. Still loved it. Then the 2nd one on my very next shoot shut off and wouldn't turn on at all. Totally dead. I would love these if they worked, but having 2 of them die within 2 weeks is a bad sign. They need to rework the engineering on these.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as bright as they make it look Great little light and a great company pushing gear tech forward. The 300D is compact and the build quality for what you pay for is great. But don't�expect it to work wonders... Not much of an impact on a daylight shoot... And found it hard to push the light through diffusion. I was hoping to use it as a decent compact key light but�will now only beable to use it�as a fill light. As a suggestion�to Aputure (if your listening and if want to enjoy slaying the market). Double the light output (600D) + bi color�option. It would cost a pretty penny per light but for sure you would take the market by storm. Fingers crossed you have something in the works. I'm ready to pay :)

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Defective...Keeps Shutting Off I was super excited to receive this light. But when it arrived I tested it and found that the light continually shuts down when set between 90-100 percent brightness. I checked around on the internet and noticed that others are having the same problem. I hope Aputure fixes the defect because I see a lot of potential with this fixture.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bright but perhaps not as bright as they say. It seems like a great light, excellent quality, very versatile. It's certainly the brightest LED I've owned. Head to head with our tungsten 1k lights though, its certainly brighter but not 2x brighter. I haven't measured with a light meter but it's maybe more of a 1300-1500w equivalent, not a 2k equivalent.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Light is defective�and randomly turns off The first day I used this light outdoor, it worked great. No issues. But I had to return it for an exchange because it started randomly shutting off especially when you tilt it up trying to bounce the light to the ceiling. I hope Aputure can fix this issue because it's a great light.
