LS C120d II

THE ULTIMATE UPGRADE

 

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. 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.

DMX512 Capability

DMX is the worldwide industry standard for film & television studios, theatre, broadcast, and all forms of digital networking systems. The C120D II comes with DMX capability, allowing studio creatives to maximize their range of uses for their lighting arsenal.

Build Quality Upgrades

The original C120D was revolutionary for its compact size and high build quality. The C120D II now takes this a step further with a new round of upgrades.

Combined Controller-Power Unit

The most notable of these upgrades is its power unit – the C120D II is now powered by a single, all-in-one power box. Made of aircraft-grade aluminum but maintaining its lightweight build, a single power unit means less cabling and power components so filmmakers spend less time setting up their light, and more time being creative.

Neutrik Cable Locks

Color coded Neutrik cable systems allow for more flexibility in where your light can be placed, and advanced locking systems ensure maximum safety, no matter your set’s challenges and environment.

Handbrake Locking Yoke

A re-designed yoke construction accommodates an expanded range of motion with over 330 degrees, letting you angle and point your light anywhere needed. An improved user-friendly handgrip design also allows for highly intuitive controls.

Featherweight Design

While the C120D II boasts an impressive studio grade build quality, it still weighs in at just over 2.2kg (4.85lbs) allowing filmmakers to easily take this light anywhere without having to worry about the transportation issues that frequently come with larger tungsten fixtures.

The Brightest or the Dimmest

The C120D II has taken the precision controls of the C120D and expands upon them even further, allowing for dimming seamlessly from 100% all the down to 1%, meaning the C120D II is capable of being both the brightest and dimmest light on your set.

5500K

While the original C120D came in at 6000K, the C120D II has a perfect 5500K daylight, allowing it to perfectly blend with other daylight-balanced lights in the Aputure ecosystem.

Everything You Love About the Original C120D, and More

While all of these incredible upgrades are worthy of note, the C120D II still has many of the same features as the 1st Generation C120D, including the universal Bowens mount, ultra-silent temperature control system, wireless remote, and the same crowd-favorite carrying bag.

The Exposure Triangle #1 – مثلث التعريض الضوئي

حتى تلتقط صورة ليست زائدة أو ناقصة الإضاءة يجب أن تحصل على التعريض الضوئي الصحيح ، لذلك عليك أن تقوم بضبط إعدادات الكاميرا الثلاثة سرعة الغالق و فتحة العدسة و حساسية الكاميرا معاً , نسمي هذه العناصر مجموعة بمثلث التعريض .

The exposure triangle is a common way of associating the three variables that determine the exposure of a photograph: Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO. One must balance all three of these to achieve a desired result, an adjustment of one requiring adjustments of at least one of the others.

Shutter Speed – الغالق أو الشتر

الغالق في الكاميرا أو الشتر هو عبارة عن ستائر موجودة داخل العدسة تقوم بالفتح و الإغلاق للتحكم بكمية الضوء المسلطة على الحساس , و كلما زادت سرعة الغالق نقصت كمية الضوء المسلطة على الحساس، و كلما قلت سرعة الغالق زادت كمية الضوء المعرضة على الحساس .

Shutter speed is the length of time light is allowed to hit the sensor. It is measured in seconds. Shutter speed is probably the easiest of the exposure triangle sides to understand. To double the amount of light, we need to double the length of the exposure.

Aperture – فتحة العدسة

يقصد بها حجم الفتحة التي تسمح بمرور الضوء ، فكلما زاد حجم فتحة العدسة ازدادت كمية الضوء المسموح بها بالدخول إلى داخل الكاميرا ، و كلما قلت فتحة العدسة قلت كمية الضوء المعرضة على حساس الكاميرا. تقاس فتحة العدسة بالرمز F و هو عبارة عن عدد كسري لذاك كلما زاد الرقم دل على فتحة عدسة ضيقة و ضوء أقل ، و كلما نقص الرقم دل فتحة أكبر و ضوء أكثر.

Aperture refers to the size of the circular hole in the lens that lets in light. The bigger the hole, the more light that reaches the sensor. The aperture size is measured in f-stops.

ISO – الآيزو

الأيزو هو عبارة عن رقم يدل على مدى حساسية الكاميرا للضوء ، فكلما نقصت حساسية الكاميرا للضوء حصلنا على ضوء أقل ، و كلما زادت حساسية الكاميرا للضوء حصلنا على ضوء أكثر.

The ISO refers to how sensitive the digital sensor in your camera is to light. The lower the ISO number, the less sensitive it is to light.
