The Aputure Light Storm C300d II improves on the Aputure Light Storm C300d with 20% more brightness, better durability, and more control options. Here are some of the standout features of the C300d II:

Redesigned Control Box with Expanded Options

Using only 1 control box, you can power the Light Storm C300d II with either 2 optional V-mount batteries (batteries not included) or directly via AC wall power. The control box also features 8 built-in lighting special effects: paparazzi, fireworks, lightning, fault bulb, TV, pulsing, strobe, and explosion. You can activate these FX instantly with a new "trigger" button. There is a stepless dimming dial front and center with access to new dimming curves for DMX use: Linear, Logarithmic, Exponential, and S-Curve. Adding to these control box improvements is a new fanless build that makes it completely silent. Use the included quick release clamp to attach this box easily to any stand, truss, or rail. This is a much more streamlined setup from the prior model, which has 2 separate control boxes with more cable requirements. The C300d II is a more portable setup, with only 1 head and 1 control box to worry about.

New App to Control Your Light

The C300d II sports all-new Bluetooth SIG mesh network technology, which allows centralized control from the new Sidus Link app and turns compatible lights into transceivers (legacy Aputure lights will be able to get on this network with an optional Module Link Bridge dongle). This rental comes with a dedicated 2.4 GHz wireless remote with an FX toggle button.

Advances in Output and Form

This light is up to 20x brighter than prior models. It maintains high CRI and color fidelity and comes with a newly designed 55° reflector to increase output by more than 3x. The lamp head overall is more robust with a yoke that allows for 360° rotation. The C300d II still uses a Bowens S-Type mount, giving you plenty of options for light modifiers.

The Aputure Light Storm C300d II is ideal for broadcast video, photography, television production, and studio filmmaking.
