The redesigned and improved APUTURE LIGHTSTORM LS C300DII Kit - Mark II is 20% brighter than its predecessor, more durable, more portable, and "smarter" than the original 300d with refined features, and advanced connectivity.
Aputure uses Chip on Board (COB) technology to produce a 5500K color temperature, with power consumption of just 350W, while outputting 3500 lux of light with an efficient reflector at a distance of 2.9m. In addition to power efficiency, this fixture also has a CRI/TLCI rating of 96, indicating accuracy in color rendering. The fixture's ballast/controller employs 0 to 100% Linear, Logarithmic, Exponential, and S-Curve dimming and is separated from the body of the fixture, making it lighter and reducing its size.
Ideal for sound-sensitive environments, the LS C300d II can be seen but not heard thanks to its highly efficient, passive cooling system. The all-aluminum construction offers rugged reliability, and the reflector and accessory mount is the widely used Bowens S-Type. A wireless remote that allows you to control on/off and dimming functions is included. Aputure also offers the Bluetooth Sidus Link App Control which allows wireless adjustments of all the light's functions as well as effects such as Lightning, Pulse, Flash, and Explosion.

Changing the Game
A couple of years ago, Aputure impacted the industry with the 300d, creating a powerful and compact LED fixture that could be modified easily. Filmmakers from around the world were impressed by the light's capabilities, but encouraged by user feedback, Aputure produced the redesigned and improved 300d Mark II. The light is 20% brighter than its predecessor, more durable, more portable, and "smarter" than the original 300d.
Even More Output
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. And as always, the 5500K‐balanced 300d Mark II maintains impeccable color fidelity with CRI and TLCI ratings of 96+ and 97+ respectively.
More Robust Lamp Head and improved yoke
The 300d Mark II also introduces new design features, while maintaining the same form factor and lightweight aircraft aluminum body as the original 300d.
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 modifier.
Max Efficiency with Hyper Reflector
The 300d Mark II is also the first Aputure light to feature the all-new, hyper efficient 55° reflector. By slightly narrowing the beam from 60° to 55° and redesigning the inner shape and coating of the reflector, they were able to increase the output of the 300d II by more than 3 times, when compared to the original design.
A Revolutionary Redesign
By utilizing Aputure’s fan‐less heatsink design, the 300d Mark II’s All‐in‐One control box is now completely silent.
Composed of a durable aluminum alloy, with a new concealed antenna and military‐grade paracord strap, the control box is ready to withstand the rigor of any film set. The 300d Mark II control box 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.
Power Solutions for Indie Filmmakers
The 300d Mark II can produce its maximum output by using two high capacity V‐Mount or Gold Mount batteries, but it also features new technology that allows you to power the light with a single battery at up to half output.* You can use this light anywhere your filmmaking takes you.
The included 6m NEUTRIK® cable provides the 300d II with a sturdy power connection and allows you the convenience of not having to grab a stinger to power your light. And now, by utilizing a standard 3m male‐to‐female 5‐pin XLR, you can easily replace the header cable in a pinch. An optional 7.5m 5‐pin XLR is also available, letting you keep your control box within arm’s reach while giving you the ability to rig your light anywhere you want, from a menace arm to a tall goalpost rig.
- *Due to the high maximum 340‐350W power draw from the light, we recommend only using batteries that are capable of at least 15‐amp continuous power draw.
New Control Features
The control box of the 300d Mark II features 8 built‐in lighting FX 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.
- Faulty Bulb
The long‐awaited 0%‐100% stepless dimming control allows you to use the 300d II in low‐light environments or to overpower the sun, and can utilize any of 4 different dimming curves:
The 300d Mark II also features a “studio mode” that allows the lights to turn on and be controlled immediately upon receiving power, making it perfect for DMX lighting grids.
More Options for Control
In addition to the control wheel, the 300d Mark II also features DMX512‐compatibility, a new 2.4Ghz Aputure Wireless remote with an FX toggle button, and the ability to be controlled by the Sidus Link App using Aputure’s Bluetooth mesh network protocol.
- 2.4Ghz Aputure Wireless remote
- Sidus Link App (Aputure Bluetooth Mesh-network)
Sidus Link App Control
Featuring all‐new Bluetooth SIG mesh network technology, the 300d Mark II will 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.
Redesigned Carrying Case
Aputure also made a new case with grip trucks and run‐and‐gun filmmakers in mind. The new 300d Mark II carrying case is composed of durable walls with a soft exterior lining that can support up to 100kg, providing both ample protection and a seat for you on set. The bottom of the case is also covered with an easy‐to‐clean, slash‐proof material, letting you rest easy, knowing your 300d Mark II will survive any situation you throw at it.
