Aputure Light Dome II
Standard Cinematic Quality Lighting
The Light Dome II is Aputure's flagship light shaping tool. An upgrade from the First Generation Light Dome, the Light Dome II features even higher quality diffusion fabric, a rapid build and breakdown system, an included honeycomb eggcrate, and several more new additions.
Advanced Diffusion Materials
The Light Dome II comes with two layers of ultra-soft diffusion: Magic Cloth and Silk Cloth. Combined, these materials turn your hard COB light into a beautiful soft light that provides a very even wrap around your subject, making the Light Dome II the perfect diffuser for portraits, interviews, documentaries, music videos, and narratives.
The new versions of the Light Domes feature a new generation of the quick-release speed ring. You can now easily install and disassemble the dome in less than 1 minute. This new generation addresses the needs of creatives who are on fast-moving sets and need a diffusion solution that can be rapidly set up.
Gel Holder Support
Generation 2 of the Light Dome now includes a gel holder that is carefully placed to maximize the capabilities of your gels while minimizing the amount of material needed from them.
Perfectly Round Catchlight
The 35" Light Dome II uses 16 rods which create 32 points of axis, allowing an exceptionally round beam of light that is almost a perfect circle. Combining this with the Aputure COB Series or other compatible Bowens mount fixtures, creatives are now able to get a precise circular round light that also functions as a catch light in the eyes of your on-camera talent.
High Quality Fabric Grid
The Light Dome II includes a studio grade fabric grid to help focus in your light beam angle to 40 degrees.
The new Light Dome II is designed to fit with all fixtures from the Light Storm COB family. It is also compatible with a wide variety of Bowens mount lighting systems, the most common mounts used in the world of photography.
Good product / Bad service
Item is excellent. Service was poor. Paid for guaranteed UPS 2 day shipping. needed the product in 3 days for a shoot. It came 5 days later. so much for guaranteed. wasted money on the extra shipping when i could have just paid for regular shipping. probably wouldn't use them again for that reason.
Awesome product, even better service!
The Aputure Light Dome II is a really fantastic product. Comes in a nice carrying case and sets up and breaks down in minutes without bending and fumbling with metal rods. But more impressive is Pictureline’s service and shipping speed. Already a repeat customer since I was so impressed!
