Aputure has introduced their new flagship Light Storm 1200D Pro LED mild. Offering up an outstanding 1200 Watts of energy, Aputure claims that it’s the “best output Bowens Mount mild fixture in the marketplace”, which it’s because different 1200 Watt lighting fixtures in the marketplace these days don’t use a Bowens mount.
It’s a 5600K sunlight balanced mild that ships with 3 other reflectors for vast, medium and slim beams that are available in a separate case. Two 48v DC inputs permit for complete or part battery energy operation offering as much as a whopping 83,100 lux of sunshine output at 3 metres with the slim reflector.
That brightness output drops down a tad from 83,100 lux @ 3m with the slim reflector to 22,400 lux with the medium reflector and 9,610 lux with the vast reflector, however that’s nonetheless impressively bright. It has a CRI>96 and TLCI>98 and is each mud and waterproof – resistant, no longer water-proof. You can’t dunk this factor underwater.
This is on no account your reasonable video mild. Aputure says that their goal for the Light Storm 1200D Pro is filmmakers who desire a high-output mild fixture that you’ll be able to throw modifiers on and that has quite a lot of keep an eye on and connectivity choices. Obviously, with the ability to use those on location is a concern to Aputure, too, therefore the elements resistance.
They say that it’s a really perfect selection to extra conventional HMI or Tungsten lamps because it doesn’t require consistent bulb adjustments. Think of it as a drop-in substitute. The 1200W COB led at the entrance is the brightest mild in all of the Aputure lineup, and gives a large number of modifier choices together with lanterns and lightweight domes, the provided reflectors or massive softboxes.
Connectivity contains CRMX and Art-net & SaCN by way of an etherCON connector in addition to 5-pin DMX512 ports and of course, Aputure’s personal Sidus Link Bluetooth app keep an eye on machine. For energy, it comes with an AC cable, even supposing transportable battery-powered operation is imaginable by way of two 48V 15A DC inputs for part or complete energy to negate the desire for noisy turbines.
Controlling the sunshine is all performed, no longer unusually, from the controller. There’s just about not anything at the mild itself. But from the controller, you’ll be able to alter energy steplessly from 0.1-100%, you get 4 other fan modes (Smart, Medium, High and Silent), 4 dimming curves (Linear, Exponential, Log and S-Curve) in addition to 8 other lights results together with Paparazzi, Fireworks, Lightning, Faulty Bulb, TV, Pulsing, Strobe and Explosion.
The mild itself together with more than a few equipment ships in a curler case whilst the reflectors are available in a separate devoted case of their very own – which is to hand. You don’t want to cart them round if you happen to’re making plans to make use of it with different modifiers.
No pricing or unencumber date has been introduced for the Aputure Light Storm 1200D Pro but, however it’s already listed at some online retailers with signups to be notified when it turns into to be had. It’s no longer even indexed within the merchandise at the Aputure web site but, despite the fact that, so it can be some time – even supposing a large number of the information is within the video above.
