Aputure has announced their new Light Storm 600D – non-Pro version. It features many of the same capabilities as the LS 600D Pro but does lose a few of its more advanced functions, along with weather sealing. It also loses $500 off its price tag, coming in at $1,390 rather than the $1,890 that the Pro model commands. Essentially, it’s an indoor version of the LS 600D Pro.
Aputure says at the LS 600D performance is essentially the same as the LS 600D Pro, which means you’re still going to get the same light output and colour accuracy, with its CRI and TLCI of 96 at 5600K. You still get continuous dimming from 0-100%, although it’s in 1% increments rather than 0.1%. You still get Sidus Link and wired DMX control but you lose wireless DMX control. And of course, there’s that loss of weather sealing.
