Filmmaking gear company Aputure revealed a prototype version of its upcoming LS 600d LED light at IBC 2019 over the weekend, introducing consumers to a model with an exceptionally bright output at 600W. The light is described as the next step up from Aputure's 300d II model.

In addition to being shorter and wider than the LS C300II model, which Aputure says makes this model better suited for shooting in tight areas, the LS 600d light's low-RPM fan is quieter than that of the 300d II despite the greater output.

The model has a 720W draw, while its companion controller can be run off a 48V DC input or four 310W V-mount batteries. Assuming the unit is run off batteries, Adorama reports the LS 600d can run non-stop for up to 1 hour and 45 minutes. The light features a Bowens-style mount, as well, for use with light modifiers and other attachments.

Cinema5D reports that the Aputure LS 600d likewise features three built-in effects: paparazzi, strobe, and lightning. The prototype version of the battery and control box will be slimmed down in the final production version of the device, according to Cinema5D, which reports that Aputure hopes to cut the size in half.

The Aputure LS 600d should be available to purchase in or around February 2020.
