Aputure Space Light Reviews

Cheap material

Poor design and cheap material. The space light will not look like the picture because the material is all wrinkled up and there is no weight at the bottom that keeps it nice and straight.

Really, this is a great accessory to have for the Aputure 300D, however I find that the build quality and practicality of this attachment is a little silly at times. I think with some after market customization would make this better. The lantern hangs a little loose without any real weight to the unit so it would benefit from a china ball like frame in the center to give it the shape. I did this with a modified china fall frame of mine. I also feel like I am breaking it every time I put it back in the bag, but it just folds up like any 5 in 1 reflector. Just scares me. We'll see how long it lasts.

still use it a bit but very poorly made. I believe Aputure even replaced this with something new.

Great Light-Easy to Use

I've used this with my Nanlite Forza 60 and 300 and both worked very well. Setup took minutes. I think the black shading fabric could have been just a little larger, but it's easy to get black cloth anywhere. You just need to have some type of boom are to use it.

Softens light, but could be better.

Overall the design of this modifier is pretty good, but there are areas for improvement. What I like is the portability, flexibility to use with different kinds of lights and the flag that's included. What I'd like to see improved is the size (could be wider and still be portable), the fabric (tends to 'crinkle up' and not drape well after being stored) and the hanging system (the draw string seems like a point of weakness). I would think a silk diffusion fabric would work perfectly for this and avoid the hourglass effect of the current fabric after being stored, where the middle of the fixture bunches in tighter than the top and bottom. I am guessing future versions of this modifier will hit the mark, but this is a solid start. Currently using this with a 150W corn light and it's a powerful combo for bright, soft light.

Bigger then expected

The drop-down is pretty massive spread is huge. Spreads the light really nicely.

Great option

We don't use the space light super often, but it's a great option when we do need it, and it was priced perfectly for how much we use it.

How is the quality of the light from this, different from the Aputure Lantern?
Asked by: James
It's about the same quality of light as the lantern, it can be used in very different applications, tighter spaces, etc. I believe that both are a must for a kit.
