Boasting 25% more brightness than its predecessor, DMX control, and a redesigned handbrake-locking yoke, the Light Storm LS C120D II Daylight LED Light from Aputure is a chip-on-board (COB) fixture with a 5500K color temperature. It consumes a negligible 180W of power while outputting 135,000 lux, equivalent to a 1000W hot light at a distance of 1.6' with an optional Fresnel. In addition to power efficiency, the fixture also features a high CRI/TLCI rating of 96/97, an indicator of precise rendering of color.

Ideal for sound-sensitive environments, the LS C120D II is seen but not heard thanks to an intelligent cooling system that employs temperature-sensitive fan to regulate the heat. There is also an Auto/Force button that triggers maximum cooling. In any case, even at maximum power, the fan noise doesn't exceed 18 dB: basically the sound of a person breathing.

The LS C120D II's performance is backed by its design. The all-aluminum construction goes through over a hundred fabrication steps. The reflector and accessory mount is the widely-used Bowens S-type, while the wired controller is separated from the fixture's body, making it lighter and reducing its size. You can make light intensity adjustments locally on the fixture or remotely with an included wireless remote that allows you to control dimming functions from as far away as 328'. Yet another way to turn the light on and off or dim it from 1-100% is via onboard DMX remotely from a console. The LS C120D II is ready for worldwide use thanks to its controller's 110-240 VAC power supply. You can also use its V-mount battery plate for external battery power when mains power is unavailable. The LS C120D II is delivered as a kit with a reflector, controller, and a dedicated carrying bag to protect the light during travel and storage.

25% Brighter than Predecessor

The LS C120D II boasts a luminance of 135,000 lux at 1.6' away with the optional Aputure Fresnel. With an approximate brightness equivalent to a 1000W tungsten light, the C120D II is nearly 25% brighter than the 1st generation C120D, making it competitive with some of the highest-grade studio lights on the market.

Accurate Color

The LS C120 II features a CRI of 96 and a 5500K color temperature. Additionally, its TLCI has been measured at up to 97. TLCI Television Lighting Consistency Index is the accurate measurement of color fidelity of a light source for broadcast use; a high rating shows that a light source will render colors well in a film or photography context. Therefore, the LS C120D II will display natural color in both photo and video applications.

DMX512 Capability

DMX is the worldwide industry standard for film and television studios, theater, broadcast, and all forms of digital networking systems. The C120D II comes with DMX capability, allowing studios to maximize their range of uses for their lighting arsenal.

Combined Controller-Power Unit

The C120D II is powered by a single, all-in-one power box. Made of aircraft-grade aluminum but maintaining its lightweight build, a single power unit means less cabling and power components so filmmakers spend less time setting up their light and more time being creative.

Neutrik Cable Locks

Color-coded Neutrik cable systems allow for more flexibility in where your light can be placed, and advanced locking systems ensure maximum safety, regardless of your set's challenges and environment.

Handbrake-Locking Yoke

A redesigned yoke construction accommodates an expanded range of motion of over 330°, letting you angle and point your light anywhere you need it. An improved user-friendly handgrip design also makes for highly intuitive controls.

The Brightest or the Dimmest

The LS C120D II has taken the precision controls of the C120D and expanded them further allowing for seamless dimming from 1 to 100%.

Auto/Force: Powerful Temperature Control

The LS C120D II has an intelligent temperature control system. The fan's rotation will be varied based on the correspondent ambient temperature. The fan can also go to maximum of rotation when you engage Auto/Force mode. This complex fan system improves both heat dissipation efficiency and LED lifespan.

Quiet Operation

Some lights utilizing a fan system are too loud and not suitable for film or video production. However, the LS C120D II with its built-in electric fan produces only 18 dB noise, similar to the sound of a person's breathing. That means there is negligible fan noise, even at maximum output.

Portable and Lightweight

Portability and lightweight are characteristics many photographers and filmmakers can appreciate in equipment, and the LS C120D II weighs in at 4.8 lb.

Intelligent Design

Featuring an aircraft-grade aluminum body, the LS C120D II is tough and durable. More than 100 fabrication procedures such as extrusion, cutting, trim, sandblasting, and laser engraving are employed.

Effective Battery Power Solution

The LS C120D II can meet various shooting requirements with AC or battery options. The light's V-mount battery plate is an asset for situations where mains power is unavailable.

Wireless Remote Control with 328' Range

Using 2.4 GHz technology, the LS C120D II can power on and off or adjust brightness wirelessly, even at distances up to 328'.

Handgrip

The LS C120D II has the convenience of an integrated handgrip for adjusting the light's direction and for expeditious packing.

this light does not come with a stand but a standard light stand or C stand will work well. If you are using modifiers, a C stand would be ideal.

"Gold mount" or "V-Mount" what is the difference ? I can't find any info about this. Thank you. ( is this the mount that goes onto your light stand ? )
Asked by: Mark
The Gold mount is over 50 years old, originally used by the Cinema industry, & locks on with 3 gold studs, to many its a more secure lock. The V mount, attaches with a v-shaped locking mechanism, & is usually less expensive. Both batteries operate exactly the same, & many fixtures Only come with a V mount, because its more widely used.
