Aputure Light Dome Mini II Reviews

Happy with the dome mini 2

Easy to assemble and well built. I bought the lantern as well, love aputure.

Just as nice as it's big brother, just smaller

My only complaint would be the wippy internal baffle. Uses the same gel holder as the full size Dome. There is not much depth here so it is shooting the source a little if you use the gel holder.

Photography and Video Ready!!

I do photography and video...in which the Mini is great for tight spaces...and makes for really fast tear down and setup. Would really recommend!

Excellent for talking heads

This product is exactly the thing that I needed for my talking head videos, youtube content and interviews, is also portable for easy traveling just does exactly what my regular light dome can't do because of size

Not Great, But OK

By Duane

The build quality is excellent and the design makes this very easy to set up. What I do not like is the lack of a stronger diffuser with this kit and the shadows are much harsher of course when compared to the near perfect light dome II, which is expected. I would use this to supplement the light dome II, not to replace. Because it lacks stronger diffusion and the size makes it a poor replacement for the larger dome, I can't really give it the full 5 stars. Aputure, add a 2.5 stop diffuser like what we get with the light dome II and I will then give it the additional star.

Amazing

What is its depth? I now have 2 Light Dome II but they take up too much space in my small room with a 11' green screen. I need to be able to light the green screen and would like to get at least 6' space for subjects.

Can this be use with Godox AD200?

Can this be use with Godox AD200?
Asked by: Joel
Yes, as mentioned by the other respondents, you could use the AD200 (or a typical shoe-mounted flash with a wireless receiver or TTL cable) with the Godox S bracket to use this. If you prefer an alternative with a metal ring in particular, you could use a combination of these two items to mount the AD200 (or AD200 Pro or AD100 Pro) in a bracket that would hold the Mini Light Dome II (or another Bowens mount modifier): (1) SmallRig Double Ball Head with Cold Shoe & 1/4"-20 Stud B&H# SM1135 https://bhpho.to/38Jczda (2) Raya Reflector Adapter for Speedlight B&H# RARAS https://bhpho.to/30LAmor

How does this compare to the Light Dome II? I'm thinking of buying this one because of the lower price tag + I feel the smaller footprint will make it more versatile. Is there something I'm missing?
Asked by: Andrs
The Aputure Light Dome II would be larger as well as deeper, thus allowing for a softer light versus using the Light Dome Mini II.

Does this work with a universal size speedring? In other words can it be used with for example a 144mm Profoto or Elinchrom speedring?

How far could this effectively reach in combination with the 120d? I was looking to soften up the light a little but still having my subject far away (I know it will only do so much)

The distance will be entirely dependent on ambient light and the cameras exposure settings.
