Aputure announces more affordable LS 600d light – Newsshooter


The LS 600d Pro is Aputures first “Pro” light with the improved build quality, water resistance, and DMX options. The LS 1200d Pro followed with a similar build and features in the proline. So, what if you don’t need those more advanced features and just want the higher quality build with the same output and save a few bucks? Well, that is exactly what Aputure has done with the new LS 600d. They took the same lamp head and COB but with no water resistance feature and redesigned the controller to decrease the price. The The LS 600d will retail for 1390 USD. That’s $ 500 less than the LS 600d Pro.

Key Differences

Aputure states the LS 600d performance is the same as the LS 600d Pro. Therefore, light output and color accuracy are the same. Check out my review of the LS 600d Pro if you are interested in learning all about the impressive fixture. The LS 600d Pro is one of my favorite Aputure lights as it’s very bright with excellent color performance. Add a large 5 ′ Octagon softbox, and you have a beautiful large source of soft light. You can also use the Spotlight and the beefy F10 Fresnel. The LS 600d is comparable to a 1200W HMI or Joker 800, making the fixture very useful for so many applications.

Side by Side Feature Differences

Below is a breakdown of the key differences between the two fixtures.
