  • 2700-6500K CCT
  • AC or Battery Power
The LS 300x Bi-Color LED Monolight from Aputure is the first Aputure light to go beyond traditional bi-color lighting by utilizing the expanded vari-white CCT range of 2700-6500K, providing warmer tungsten tones and cooler than daylight whites. The brilliant light can be dimmed from a potent main light to a subtle, nuanced fill light, flicker free across the dimming range. It emits up to 20,500 lux at 3.3' with its included 55° Hyper Reflector. The Controller Box attached to the LS 300x head with a 9.8' head extension cable, so adjusting settings is effortless regardless of where the light is set.

The LS 300x Bi-Color LED Monolight from Aputure is the first Aputure light to go beyond traditional bi-color lighting by utilizing the expanded vari-white CCT range of 2700-6500K, providing warmer tungsten tones and cooler than daylight whites. The brilliant light can be dimmed from a potent main light to a subtle, nuanced fill light, flicker free across the dimming range. It emits up to 20,500 lux at 3.3' with its included 55° Hyper Reflector. The Controller Box attached to the LS 300x head with a 9.8' head extension cable, so adjusting settings is effortless regardless of where the light is set. The self-regulating, multi-voltage controller also operates using single or dual V-mount batteries, suitable for lighting in remote locations.

Robust Bi-Color Performance
Combining the latest optical color-blending technology with Aputure's dual-color LED chipset provides an unprecedented flexibility from a single LED fixture. A specially-designed color-blending optical element in front of the chipset combines the LED output into a single cohesive point light source. The highly-efficient light output renders at CRI 96, TLCI 96, plus higher than industry standard SS1 85, and D55-SSI 74 ratings. This level of efficiency means colors and skin tones will be reproduced with an extremely-high degree of accuracy.
Local Control, DMX, 2.4 GHz Wireless, and Bluetooth Remote Control Options
Intuitive local controls and a bright LCD display on the Controller Box allow precise and repeatable setups locally. In addition, the output may be controlled using the included 2.4 GHz wireless remote, or the light may be integrated into a DMX network via the 5-pin XLR in/out ports. Also, thanks to Aputure's integrated Sidus Mesh network chipset, all the 300x's functions may be controlled by the Sidus Link app, free to download for iOS and Android portable devices. The app also allows saving presets, adjusting/triggering lighting effects, luminance, and CCT, as well as installation of firmware updates, all from your smartphone or tablet.
Dual Output Modes
Constant Output Mode allows precision CCT adjustment while maintaining constant luminance, and even shift color temperature seamlessly during a scene. Max Output Mode will maximize CCT and dimming levels within the 4000-5500K range.
Bowens S-Mount Versatility
The integrated Bowens-S mount allows using an almost limitless number of available modifiers to narrow, diffuse, or otherwise sculpt the light to suit any application or creative vision.
