Aputure Light Dome II
Bundled with a fabric honeycomb grid add-on that helps control the light spill spread by 40 degrees, and suitable for portraits, head shots, interviews, and fashion, the 34.8" Light Dome II from Aputure is a 16-sided modifier that offers quality of light options and wide compatibility with Aputure lights, as well as those of the many other manufacturers that use the popular Bowens front accessory mount. The structure of the Light Dome II is fortified by its 16 durable steel support rods, while its silver interior maximizes your light source's output. Its 24" depth produces a focused light with directional control that can be narrowed further for selective lighting with the included 40° fabric grid. Aputure provides a removable inner diffuser and both 1.5-stop and 2.5-stop front diffusers that you can use individually or all at once for softness and contrast options. The supplied gel filter holder also offers creative color options. Any way you use it, you'll find that the Light Dome II renders soft, flattering light with a wraparound quality and produces round, natural-looking catchlights in the eyes of your subject.
