Aputure Announces Spotlight Light Modifier

Aputure has announced Spotlight light modifiers, three user interchangeable light shaping lenses at 19, 26 and 36-degrees with a Bowens mount which work on the company’s 120D, 120D Mk II and 300D lights.

Aputure said the Spotlight modifiers use lenses to minimize color fringing at the edges of the projected beam circle down to less than one mm at 0.5 m. The new high resolution optics give 10x the native light output when used with an Aputure 120 D Mark II. This is combined with minimal light fall off and a color shift of less than 200-degree Kelvin.

The dual mount system also enables the spotlight to be mounted easily on C stands in the field or under slung on the lighting grid in the studio.

Aputure said Spotlights have dual slots for included Gobo frame and gel holder or optional iris. Internal shutters are included for precise beam shaping. Precision lenses reduce chromatic aberrations and fall off.

The Aputure Spotlight will ship in the middle of May. Each lens is $499.
