The excessive output LED LS 600d line is rising barely bigger with the brand new bi-color 600x being introduced by lighting producer Aputure as we speak.

The battle between HMI expertise and excessive output LED fixtures continues with the addition of the bi-color LS 600x fixture overlaying a kelvin vary between 2700K and 5600K (the LS 300x tops out at 6500K).

The price of the LS 600x is slated to be $1990.00.
For comparability, Aputure charges the 300x at 3 meters at 5500K touchdown round 1,700 lux with the hyper reflector attachment. That’s an enormous bounce for the 600x to five,610+ lux, however we’ll hopefully be capable of do our personal testing down the highway. The 600x additionally solely attracts 720W on the high finish and might be powered by V-Mount, Gold Mount or Block Batteries with its 48V 3-Pin XLR enter.
A number of different key options of the LS 600x that fall in keeping with the LS 600d Pro and different LS 300d/x fixtures:

Mild Dome 150:
To begin, the Mild Dome 150 is huge: 4.9 ft in width with a 31.5 inch depth. This makes the Mild Dome 150 the biggest bowens mounted round softbox I’ve seen from Aputure, however falls shut in measurement to the $199.00 Nanlite Para 150 softbox (the Para 150 doesn’t embody the grid accent in that value). The Mild Dome 150 ships with two varieties of entrance diffusion (a 1.5 Cease and a pair of.5 Cease model) and its $269 price ticket additionally consists of the grid.
