You can find the right level of illumination for your scene with 0 to 100% dimming and easily make adjustments locally on the unit with an intuitive LCD screen. Wireless control is also possible from a distance of up to 262' using your smartphone and the Sidus Link app. It lets you conveniently select your lighting settings, activate Lighting FX, or control multiple units at the same time. The 100x S offers extended power options and is ready for worldwide use thanks to its included 100 to 240 VAC power supply. For situations when AC power is unavailable, it can also run on two optional V-mount or Gold mount batteries using the separately available 2-Bay Battery Power Station. Equipped with a full-size Bowens mount, it allows compatibility with a wide array of light shapers.

Detailed Color Fidelity System
The S-series has improved spectral continuity to achieve the enhanced color quality of an ultra-high SSI (Tungsten) of 89 and (D56) of 87, a 17.5% increase in SSI from its predecessor. Impressive ratings of CRI 95, TLCI 97, CQS 97, and TM-30 Rf 96/Rg 102 are your assurance of a high degree of accuracy in color reproduction at all times. Suitable for home studios or live stream setups, the significantly improved spectral quality of the 100x S will ensure accurate skin tone reproduction for your videos and photos.
Powerful Output with Hyper Reflector
The 100x S emits up to 3640 lux at a distance of 3.3' at 5600K. When equipped with the included hyper reflector, the light's output climbs to an impressive 30,500 lux. It is a suitable choice for filmmakers and photographers alike by producing both soft and intense lighting for all shooting environments.
Preset Effects
The light has nine special effects, including paparazzi, fireworks, lightning, faulty bulb, TV, pulse, strobe, explosion, and fire.
Lightweight and Versatile
The amaran 100x S is a lightweight lamp head with an integrated umbrella mount and full Bowens mount versatility. You can combine it with a large selection of optional modifiers including the Light Dome SE, Light Dome Mini II, and Aputure Lantern.
