The device, whose maximum output power is only 60 watts, outclasses 300-watt Fresnel-type studio floodlights equipped with incandescent light sources! That’s not all, however. Custom aspheric optics developed by the experts at Aputure allow the Light Storm LS 60x to squeeze out 30,000 lux spot light or 5200 lux diffused light.

Ideal color temperature

Do you want your lamp light to perfectly reflect the atmosphere of a certain time of day, help create a warm or slightly cooler atmosphere and be perfectly matched to the scenery? Take advantage of the predefined CCT modes that make it easy to test different solutions and help you manage your ideas more effectively. The light color temperature range here is between 2700 K and 6500 K. This will make the emotions, moods and atmosphere of the created scenes even more real and natural!

Natural light color

The use of modern bi-color LEDs in Aputure Light Storm LS 60x is another step towards even better color reproduction of the emitted light (from 2700 K to 6500 K), which is after all an integral part of unique film scenes and photo shoots. The sensational results of this model are evidenced by high values of CRI and TLCI coefficients. They define the degree of similarity of light to the spectrum of natural sunlight and range from 0 to 100. The higher the value, the better the rendered colors of illuminated objects – they look more natural. CRI and TLCI of 95+ guarantee color fidelity and correct depth of tone.

Point or diffuse light

With the Light Storm LS 60x, you don’t need an additional modifier to effectively decrease or increase the diameter of the light beam. All thanks to the unique aspherical lens created by Aputure. Focus a powerful spotlight on a specific part of the frame or diffuse the light to eliminate shadows. Precise adjustment will provide an ergonomic knob, located on the housing of the lamp.

Get organized on set

On the fork mount, which allows for comfortable light direction adjustment, there is a V-mount socket. It will allow you to conveniently change batteries, as well as reduce the number of accessories tangled under your feet. The V-mount socket connects both the AC adapter and popular D-Tap batteries. Included with the Aputure Light Storm LS 60x LED flash, you’ll also find a special mounting plate that will accommodate two NP-F series cells. This adapter will easily fit into the V-mount socket. Whichever solution you choose, you’ll always have everything in order on set!

One battery is enough

Working on a rechargeable battery, you don’t have to give up the full power that the Aputure Light Storm LS 60x LED lamp offers at all. The well-known and appreciated by filmmakers and photographers solution used in the Light Storm 120d II, 300d II and 300x is also here. One rechargeable battery offering D-Tap power is enough to take full advantage of the flash’s capabilities. But that’s not all! With the included adapter, the Aputure Light Storm LS 60x LED Lamp can be powered by popular NP-F series batteries. They are smaller, cheaper and are used by both amateurs and professionals! Two NP-F batteries are enough to give you full power – just like mains power! Importantly, one cell will also allow you to light your set. With this solution, however, the maximum light output will be half as much.

Exclusive 8-leaf gates

Included with the Aputure Light Storm LS 60x LED flash, you will find the unique 8-leaf gates. It’s a modifier that offers great light shaping capabilities, often used by professional filmmakers and photographers. Ergonomic 8-blade design allows you to even more precisely adjust the character of light to the filmed or photographed scene. The additional wings, not usually offered by traditional gates, give you even more control over the shape and size of the light beam. Thanks to this you will win every battle with unwanted shadows!

Professional Bowens Mounting System

Although the LS 60 series lights offer a convenient Mini Mount accessory mounting standard by default, there’s nothing stopping you from taking advantage of proven solutions that are extremely popular with filmmakers. It is the Bowens mounting system, which you can use thanks to the included adapter. Thanks to it you will be able to better adjust the character of the light to your needs, reaching both the modifiers fromputure offer (such as Light Dome II or Light Dome mini II), as well as those coming from other manufacturers of professional film equipment. If, over time, you find yourself wishing for a new gantry, canopy, or softbox, it’s easy to find the accessory that meets your needs without worrying about whether or not the Mini Mount system will be compatible!

Even more possibilities

The new LS 60 series of products are not only two multi-purpose lights, but also unique accessories that will further expand the possibilities of controlling light and creating with it a unique atmosphere of the photographed or filmed scenes. The ergonomic Aputure LS60 softbox will soften and diffuse the light, add contrast and precisely illuminate selected parts of the frame. And the Aputure Spotlight Mini Zoom will let you creatively play with the shape of the light and the size of its beam. Thanks to the new Mini Mount system, you only need a few seconds to install your accessories in the right place and conveniently secure them with a special lock.
