Aputure 300D Mark II LED

When coupled with the Fresnel 2X attachment, the Aputure 300D mark II even rivals the lighting output of a 575 HMI, all while offering a very high quality light with a TLCI rating of 97+.
The company also unveiled the new Aputure Lantern lighting modifier, which offers an even soft light spread over a wide area and is compatible with both the 300D and 120D COB series.
