Aputure Light Dome II Reviews

Nope - Don't Buy It

I seldom write reviews. But this piece of junk needs to be outed. First of all, the Aputure Light Dome II is super convenient and yields a nice, useable light. I love that attribute. It's relatively affordable. Love that too. It sets up quickly. That's great because we shoot on location and move a lot. All good. Until you are done shooting. Here's the problem. The thin little rods are weak and easily bent out of shape. I can live with that poor quality aspect. BUT, the release latches are pure junk. Those little levers get stuck. And stay stuck. What a pleasure to watch my assistant struggling with them while everything else is packed up and ready to go. So, I jump in to help. Nope, can't get them to release. Throw the half folded piece of junk onto the cart, then into the truck. Good for some unplanned cursing. Hey Aputure - Your lights are great. Please make your light modifiers better, too.

I have to admit, I was super nervous to put this dome together but I found a video on YouTube that walked me through it. Now I can put it together and take it down with my eyes closed. it is a beautiful piece and the inner diffuser insures no hot spots. I love it!!!

On top of all its accessories and great value, the Aputure Light Dome II is extremely fast to set-up. With its ring and spoke built together, it unfolds in seconds by locking/snapping each spoke one by one. The wrap is even easier. Apart from this incredible tool the Dome II is a pretty classic circular reflector and produces a nice large and soft source

The quick release rods on this thing are a game changer, you are setup literally within a minute. Feels like good build quality, working great on my Aputure LS300x. I've had it a couple weeks, and so far I can't find anything to complain about really.

Great dome!
