The Aputure Light Storm C120D II is a complete re-design of the original C120D, 25% brighter. The Aputure 120d II now draws 140w of power (20w more than the original 120d) but the big increase in output, from what was already a punchy fixture, is great news.
Also a major refinement is the ability to now make <10% fine adjustments to the dimmer. Talking of which, Aputure have now integrated the controller and ballast in to one unit, making a much neater setup. The new unified controller also features Neutirx locking ports for the included 6m, colour-coded, cables as well as the V-lock battery mount on the back and integrated wireless control.
Finally, in response to user and rental houses requirements, the general sturdiness of the yoke on the Aputure 120d II has been improved, meaning the mount and threads will stand up to heavier use, and the lock has been changed for a handbrake style lever, giving more rigidity. The new yoke can also now be underslung, giving users more options for locating and mounting the fixture.
Ideal for sound-sensitive environments, the Aputure LS C120D II is seen but not heard thanks to an intelligent cooling system that employs temperature-sensitive fans to regulate the heat. There's 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.
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.
The LS C120D II boasts a luminance of 135,000 lux at 0.5m 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.
The Aputure LS C120D II features a CRI of 96 and a 5500K colour temperature. Additionally, its TLCI also has been measured at up to 97. TLCI, or Television Lighting Consistency Index, is the accurate measurement of colour fidelity of a light source for broadcast use; a high rating shows that a light source will render colours well in a film or photography context. Therefore, the LS C120D II will display natural colour in both photo and video applications.
DMX is the worldwide industry standard for film and television studios, theater, broadcast, and all forms of digital networking systems. The Aputure LS C120D II comes with DMX capability, allowing studios to maximize their range of uses for their lighting arsenal.
