The Aputure C300d Light is a Chip on Board (COB) LED fixture with a 5500K colour temperature that consumes only 300W of power while outputting 4451 fc of light with a standard reflector at a distance of 1.6′. The C300D also has a colour accuracy CRI rating of 95 and a TLCI rating of 96. For use in sound sensitive environments the intelligent cooling system employs temperature sensitive fans to regulate the heat while minimising noise.The C300D features an all-aluminium design minimising weight while maintaining strength. The reflector and accessory mount is the widely used Bowens S-Type, and the wired controller is separated externally making it lighter and reducing its size. An included wireless remote allows for control of on/off and dimming functions from as far away as 150 metres. The 110-240 VAC power supply allows for international use, and the inclusion of a battery plate allows for use of V-mount batteries for external power.


Featuring 48,000 lux @ 0.5 metres with its included reflector, the C300d can also reach an impressive 142,000 lux @ 0.5 metres with an optional Fresnel attachment (not included) (with camera settings set to f/36, 1/200 shutter, and ISO 800). This level of illumination is approximately equivalent in output to that of a traditional 2k tungsten or 400w HMI.

Colour Fidelity

Shining bright at 5500K, the C300d casts a powerful light that is both natural looking and pristine in colour. The C300d features a CRI rating of 95+ and a TLCI rating of 96+, allowing for precise colour accuracy, making it ideal for broadcast video, photography, television production, and studio filmmaking.

Portable and Lightweight

The C300d weighs just 2.1 kg, while a 2000W tungsten fixture weighs nearly 9 kg. The C300d also simplifies the once-complicated and heavy process of using light shaping accessories, making it possible to modify your light using just one hand.

Professional Bowens Mount

The C300d utilises the Bowens universal mount design, allowing for a wide variety of available accessories, including but certainly not limited to Fresnel, Light Dome, and Space Light modifiers.

All-In-One Canvas Bag

The C300d comes shipped in a space-efficient and portable canvas bag. The canvas bag not only protects the light, it keeps all its accessories organised in a single place – ideal for the mobile, on-the-go shooter.

Intelligent Temperature Control

The C300d has an intelligent temperature control system. The smart fans come with advanced internal thermometers and vary their speeds based on the system’s temperature. Even at maximum speed, the fans are quiet and keep the light from getting too hot, eliminating the need for grip gloves.

Independent Lighting Controls

The C300d is built to give you maximum control over your light. The light’s intuitive control box allows you to change things like brightness, remote channels and fan speeds. With a control box that is separated from the light’s power ballast, top weight is greatly reduced, allowing for maximum portability. Using 2.4 GHz FSK technologies, the C300d wireless control can power on or off or adjust brightness wirelessly, even at distances up to 150 metres.

Dual Power Solutions

The C300d can be powered either via AC, or for location shoots you can mount 2 V-mount batteries (not included), eliminating the need for a costly generator. (To ensure optimal performance, each working battery output current 12A and capacity more than 190WH in the same standard is recommended.)
