Aputure LS 1200D Pro LED Light
THERE’S A STORM COMING
The Light Storm 1200d Pro is the flagship Light Storm product and the brightest fixture in the Aputure and Light Storm lineup. It utilizes a 1200W Daylight COB chipset to compete on the same level as industry-standard HMI Lights, with a staggering 83,100+ lux output at 3 meters with the Hyper Reflector (Narrow).
THE BRIGHTEST BOWENS
The LS 1200d Pro is the first and only Bowens Mount LED on the market with a 1200W COB, making it the highest output LED fixture compatible with Bowens Mount modifiers like Aputure Light Dome soft boxes and Lanterns. The LS 1200d Pro can also be accompanied by Bowens Mount soft boxes made by manufacturers such as DoPchoice and Chimera Lighting.
3 HYPER REFLECTORS
To adapt the output and beam angle of the Light Storm 1200d Pro to your shooting scenario, the 1200d Pro kit includes 3 different Hyper Reflectors optimized for the size of it’s COB.
The LS 1200d Pro joins the Light Storm Pro series, featuring an IP54 weather-resistant design. Using waterproof fans, sealed internal structures, rubber caps for all ports, and weatherproof connectors, the LS 1200d Pro can withstand challenging inclement weather environments.
0.1% STEPLESS DIMMING
As a professional Light Storm series fixture the 1200d Pro features enhanced, stepless dimming, as well as light control in 0.1% increments, ensuring that you get the exact amount of light that you need.
Designed for professional lighting technicians, the Light Storm 1200d Pro integrates sACN and Art-net via a durable etherCON connector, as well as wireless Lumenradio CRMX, in addition to its responsive on-board controls, DMX512 5-Pin XLR In and Out, and Sidus Link® app compatibility, to seamlessly integrate into existing lighting workflows.
Sidus Mesh integration allows users to control the 1200d Pro from nearly any smartphone or tablet with the Sidus Link mobile app up to 400 meters away with the addition of other fixtures, including the Aputure LS 600d Pro, LS 600x Pro, Accent B7c, MC, and Nova P600c.
With exceptional color accuracy measurements of CRI ≥96, TLCI ≥98, CQS≥95, and SSI (D56) ≥73, the 1200d Pro provides consistently accurate light quality for all filmmakers.
REDESIGNED CONTROL BOX
As the flagship Light Storm product, the LS 1200d Pro also features a new control box design. The new control box has DMX512 In and Out ports, an industry-standard etherCON connector, two 48V/15A 3-pin XLR Inputs, and an AC Input that are all housed on the side of the fixture in an orientation that maximizes flexibility while minimizing damage. This allows the control box to be positioned upright on its feet, so it can be set down on set seamlessly. The control box also features two Lightning Clamps for different orientations on your light stand.
As a 1200W COB LED with a maximum power draw of 1440W, the Light Storm 1200d Pro is high-powered fixture that can compete on the same level as HMIs, while still featuring the ability to be operated using DC battery solutions. The 1200d Pro’s control box has two 48V/15A (720W) DC Inputs. Providing power to one input will operate the 1200d Pro at half power, and providing sufficient power to both inputs will operate the fixture at full output. With its 1440W maximum power draw, the LS 1200d Pro can also easily be powered using a Honda 2000W generator compared to comparable HMIs that might overload the system.
BUILT-IN LIGHTING FX
The LS 1200d Pro can utilize 8 different built-in light effects: “Paparazzi”, “Fireworks”, “Lightning”, “Faulty Bulb”, “TV”, “Pulsing”, “Strobe”, and “Explosion”. The LS 1200d Pro also has the potential to expand further into the SidusPro FX ecosystem.
The LS 1200d Pro features a detailed LCD screen interface that, including a revamped professional UI that displays important information in an intuitive way, including easy-to-read intensity and color information.
DUAL CARRYING CASES
Housing the 1200d Pro’s lamp head, redesigned control box, and 3 Hyper Reflectors, the 1200d Pro is accompanied by a rolling lamp case, and reflector carrying case, making transporting the fixture to and from set a breeze.
“I used the Aputure LS 1200d Pro on two projects over the course of a week and it’s a great, versatile light. For both projects we didnt have a generator, so low power draw with high output was important. In the first scenario we used it direct on talent through the 1st floor window, or bounced it into a mirror towards the subject or background. In the second scenario we were shooting 12 stories up in a loft and the 1200d was our workhorse, bouncing it off an 8×8 or using it again with the fresnel for a harder source.” – Eric Koretz, Cinematographer
BECAME THE SUN
“…we wanted some sort of backlight a lot of times, and also oriented a lot of scenes to the sun. So in the absence of the sun, the 1200d became the light we’d use for that.” – Bongani Mlambo, Cinematographer – shooting We’re All Going to Die (dir. Freddie Wong, Matt Arnold)
“The 1200D has now replaced all my 1.8k HMIs, I’m never looking back.” – Matt Plaxco, Cinematographer
