Big and Soft!

Just like the smaller one but much larger. A really nice soft light for interviews.

Solid but delicate

Upon opening my Ld150 for the first time, i overextended three of the ‘spokes’ with too much force by hand. Hopefully this won’t disrupt its function. Love its simplicity but hope it withstands on set usage.

Fantastic big softy

Big, soft light source, exactly what I needed for my 600x

Massive soft light

Very happy with this purchase, it’s proven to be incredibly quick and useful, allowing me to not longer need a stand for the light and a separate stand for diffusion. Good stuff.

Best Light Dome Ever...For Specific Contexts!! But Seriously!!!

I couldn't love my new Light Dome 150 more! The softness and falloff for single subjects in studio, in conjunction with the grid to control spill on the backdrop, is INSANE! It's so tasty and toothsome that my molars jumped out of my mouth and ran away (but then they came back because Aputure is so thoughtful and want to make sure their customers aren't toothless). Additionally, for front fill, together with the Lantern 90 boomed to the far side, with two subjects for interviews: bomber! Looking forward to push it to the next level with more subjects, but it's a game changing time saver instead of having to set up a diffusion screen or bounce on stands: total set up time is 3mins or less taking your time with sips of coffee every minute versus 10-12mins with the diffusion or bounce if you're hustling and then being sweaty for the start of your interview with talent! If you're a creative and are about to go all in, note, this is a monster of a dome and requires a LOT of space. If you don't have a lot of floor space to get your dome far enough away from your talent OR if you don't have good ceiling height and have to raise your light to get it above talent that's standing or sitting on stools, you may want to hold off on getting this guy. Also, I am in full support of Apurture's recommendation for pairing this with the 600D and its beefier yoke OR pair the 300D or 300X with a stand that has a junior receiver. (Full disclaimer: I have chosen to do this with my 300 series lights but have not found this yet as a suggested protocol on any material provided by an official Aputure representative or provider.) I was using my Manfrotto Alu Ranker 9' stands with the 150 Light Dome and they were bowing significantly as I extended them upwards. Run and gun with the stands fully collapsed, they're ok and reduce the weight of stands you have to carry in, but if you're extending stands upwards, I highly recommend getting some beefier C-stands with junior receivers to protect your gear and WAY more importantly to protect your talent and crew! Again, my recommendations! One last minor thing, I'm 6'7" and I have a difficult time reaching to the center of the dome to lock out the staves: if you're not vertically gifted (aka a little shorter) you may have a difficult time popping this dome open. Also, make sure you set it up in the space you're using it: it won't fit through a standard door without potentially damaging your staves or Bowens mount ring! You'll only make that mistake once! Hope this helps! Stay creative, my friends!
