Creative work with light
The Light Dome SE is a versatile lighting modifier that is great for filmmakers, online video makers and photographers. It will allow you to beautifully light interviews and create unique portraits. Combine the softbox with a flash equipped with a Bowens mount (such as the Aputure Light Storm series or Amaran 100 and 200 COB) to transform a single source of hard light into perfect soft light.
Perfect facial lighting
Soft light is the secret to successful portraits, whether you’re shooting or filming people talking to each other. The Aputure Light Dome SE softbox with a diameter of 85cm has been created specifically for just such an application. It’s the perfect choice when you want to hide imperfections and evenly illuminate your subjects. This unusual design will make the characters in your frames look perfect.
Fit to your needs
Included with the Aputure Light Dome SE sofbox, you will find 3 diffusion fabrics – 2 external (1.5 EV and 2.5 EV) and 1 internal (1.5 EV). With these you will soften light and blur harsh shadows, creating memorable images captured with the eye of your camera or camcorder. Used individually or together, the fabrics allow you to perfectly match the degree of light diffusion to the current needs of your shots and frames.
The Aputure Light Dome SE softbox uses the proven solutions known from the Light Dome II model. By placing 16 rods in reinforced fabric guides, it has been possible to give the modifier a 32-sided shape that is very close to a circle. This allows it to produce beautiful oval reflections that will take your films and videos to an even higher level of professional execution!
Want to precisely illuminate your chosen subject or space without scattering light into the rest of the frame? Just reach for the included honeycomb (grid). Attached with a sturdy Velcro strap, the grid will allow you to give the right contrast and direct the light exactly as you need it!
A mount that supports the professional Bowens standard ensures wide compatibility of the modifier with hundreds of lights on the market. The Aputure Light Dome SE softbox is ideal for use with the entire Light Storm range of products, among others. You can also easily combine it with other brands’ devices equipped with Bowens mounting.
The design of the Aputure Light Dome SE softbox is based on solid rods and a proprietary instant mounting system. Thanks to Aputure’s pioneering solutions, it is difficult to find a similar light modifier on the market that unfolds and folds as quickly! All you need to do is place the rods in special guides and then use the Bowens mount to connect to the flash. The entire assembly of the dome will only take a dozen seconds!
Weighing in at around 1 kg, the Light Dome SE softbox is the perfect travel companion. It comes with a sturdy transport bag to ensure that no matter where you take your light modifier, it gets there safe and sound!
