By utilizing the latest in Aputure COB LED technology, the 300d
Mark II outputs a whopping 20% more light than its predecessor.
When combined with the Fresnel 2X, the 300d Mark II can produce
up to 80,000 lux @ 1m, approaching the luminance of a 575W HMI.
The new yoke allows for 360° of rotation, and when combined
with the handbrake locking mechanism from the 120d Mark II,
you’ll be able to mount the light in any position, with any Bowens
The real advancement is in the complete redesign of the control
box. By utilizing Aputure’s fan-less heatsink design, the 300d
Mark II’s All-in-One control box is now completely silent. It
is also the first product to utilize Aputure’s new quick release
plate and clamp system, allowing you to firmly secure it on
any stand, truss, or speed rail.
The control box of the 300d Mark II features 8 built-in lighting FX:
"Paparazzi", "Spark", "Lightning", "Faulty Bulb", "TV", "Pulse",
"Flash", and "Explosion", with more coming in future firmware
updates via the control boxes USB interface. The control box also
features a new “trigger” button to activate lighting FX instantly.
Featuring all-new Bluetooth SIG mesh network technology, the
300d Mark II is also the first app-controllable Aputure lighting
fixture.* This technology will allow you to control a 300d Mark II
from up to 400 meters away, by linking multiple lights up to 80
meters apart. Using the Sidus Link app, you’ll be able to access all
of the functions of the control box, in addition to being able to save
presets, finely tune and trigger additional lighting FX, as well as
install firmware updates, all from your smartphone or tablet.
*Support for the Sidus Link app on iPhone, iPad, and Android will be
released a varying times throughout 2019.
