Designed for light weight and portability, the 27" Light Dome Mini is compatible with the Aputure Light Storm 120 and 300 Series LED lights, and in fact, any LED light with a Bowens front accessory mount. The sturdily built modifier has 16 heat-resistant rods, which form a virtual circle that yields wide coverage and pleasing, natural-looking catchlights in the eyes of your subject, while maximizing output with its reflective silver interior. To provide further control, Aputure includes a 37.8-degree fabric grid, which eliminates spill light but most importantly, gives you directional control of the soft source for selective lighting or dramatic effects.

Double the Diffusion

The Light Dome Mini is equipped with double diffusion, a silver interior, and quality nylon exterior to produce an extremely soft and even look on your subject.

16 Rods, Robust Build

The Light Dome Mini's 16 rods are durable and heat-resistant. This hexadecagon structure creates a precise circular light as well as appealing catchlights in the eyes of your camera talent.

Simple and Compact

Designed to be compact, the Aputure Light Dome Mini is 27" in diameter and 9.8" deep. It's easy to install and fold up. It's also equipped with a 37.8-degree grid and speed ring to work seamlessly with any Bowens mount light.

Controls Spill

The grid adds the ability to confine the output of your fixture to a specific area. With more control comes the better flexibility. In portrait lighting, for instance, the grid allows for better separation between your foreground subjects and the background.

question

What is going on with the spikes around the rim? I've never seen this and I feel like it would be a hazard in my little studio.
Asked by: Jessica U.
They're part of the spine around the outside of the softbox that helps create the shape. I believe they're a little longer because that makes them easier to bend, versus being shorter. They also stick out so that you can easily attach the white silk or optional grid on the front. The edges are all rounded so you won't hurt yourself. It's also nice because you can set the softbox on the ground and not get the white fabric dirty. It's a different design but I haven't noticed any safety issues out of the ordinary.

question

The product listing states its specifically For Light Storm 120 & 300 LED Lights, but would this work on any light with a Bowens mount?
Asked by: Phil
The Aputure Light Dome Mini (27 ) would include a speedring that is compatible for use with the Bowens S-mount. It is designed for use with LED light fixtures. As such, I would only recommend using the unit with either LED lights or strobe lights, as I do not see a heat rating for the fabric for use with hot light fixtures.
