In the previous firmware, if a user initiated a Bluetooth Reset without being in the Bluetooth wireless control mode, the connection process would fail. In the new firmware, initiating a Bluetooth Reset will automatically force the fixture into Bluetooth wireless control mode, so it will be ready to connect with the Sidus Link App
When turning on the 300d II, the light output will slowly ramp up until it reaches the previous brightness setting. Quickly increasing the brightness would have the same effect. This is to prevent from damaging batteries by surging them too quickly. Now, in DMX mode, the delay has been minimized if a quick flash, or quick brightness change is triggered, allowing for the instantaneous response expected from a DMX fixture.
This firmware is to prevent any malfunctions due to lamp head and control box compatibility. Due to the similarities between the components for the LS C300d II and LS 300x, if the components are mixed up and a 300d II control box is connected to a 300x lamp head or vice versa, the control box will not control the fixture and will display the following message: “Incorrect Fixture”.
By utilising 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 @ 1m, approaching the luminance of a 575W HMI.
The new yoke allows for 360º 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 Bowens mount modifier.
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, we were able to increase the output of the 300d II by more than 3 times, when compared to the original design.
The real advancement is in the complete redesign of the control box. By utilising Aputure’s fan-less heatsink design, the 300d Mark II’s All-in-One control box is now completely silent. Composed of a durable aluminium alloy, with a new concealed antenna and military‐grade paracord strap, the control box is ready to withstand the rigor of any film set. It is also the first product to utlilise Aputure’s new quick release plate and clamp system, allowing you to firmly secure it on any stand, truss, or speed rail.
The control box of the 300d Mark II features 8 built in lighting FX: “Paparazzi”, “Spark”, “Lightning”, “Faulty Bulb”, “TV”, “Pulse”, “Flash” and “Explosion”, 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.
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.
Feturing all new Bluetooth SIG mesh network technology, the 300d Mark II is 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 at varying times throughout 2019.
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 our Bluetooth mesh network protocol.
Aputure also made the 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.
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: Linear, Logarithmic, Exponential, and S‐Curve.
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.
