Aputure 600D Updates Plus Nova Pricing and Availability

The cinema5D Virtual Show catches back up with Ted Sim for Aputure 600D updates as well as pricing and availability for the new Aputure Nova RGB panel.

The Aputure 600D is their most powerful light to date. Announced back in 2019, it is a 600W Bowens mount LED lamp with battery/AC control box.

Check out our coverage on the initial announcement here, or here is a TDLR breakdown of the existing key features:

600W Single LED, 720W draw package (including control unit)
Battery or AC powered
Separate Control unit
Equivalent output to 5K Tungsten/ 1.2K HMI
Bowens Mount
S-Curve on Dimmer to control a smooth ease in/out of dimming
App Controllable
Wireless DMX
Built in effects (Strobe, Lightning, Paparazzi)

New to the Aputure 600D is a smaller control unit. Ted mentioned on the initial announcement that they could probably halve the size of it, and here it is. Probably not half the size, but definitely smaller in design.

The reduction in size changes the power options slightly. On board battery support is now for dual 26V and 28V V-lock batteries.

This is becoming more common for high-output modern light fixtures. For those more invested in 14V batteries, there is still a solution. There is a separate power box that will support X4 14V batteries. If plugged in these can also charge batteries at the same time as powering.Further on updates to power, block batteries are also support directly with the new control box.

The Aputure 600D is now also weather proofed all-round – lamp, control box, connectors.

The yolk is slightly re-designed to accommodate large modifiers.

Speaking of large modifiers, Aputure has announced a true 10” glass fresnel lens for the 600D.This attaches via the Bowens mount and there is also a set of large barn doors to accompany it.

Last in the Aputure 600D updates is a set of negative reflector dish barn doors.
These connect directly to the bare bulb, meaning you get a harder shaft of light to control.

This is due to the fact that the aperture of the bare LED is much smaller in comparison to the 10” Fresnel attachment.

Last but not least, there is also an update to their RGB panel light. The Aputure Nova now has pricing and availability.

You can pre-order units from 27th May, and pricing for the Aputure Nova is $1699 for fixture only, and $1899 with rolling case.

What do you think about the new light? Are you already using Aputure products? Let us know in the comments below.

Thanks so much Aputure,i no i have been hammering you guys on Fresnel size and cct but as a professional user, in film, tv we have all been wanting these units …but with the form factors that we one Know work, and are used too.
and congratulations on making it water proof well done Aputure i now know i will be buying this product once its released your have not only listened to your marked you have obviously tried really hard to make that vision a reality. water proof is a game changer living in New Zealand it rains …a LOT …. if you make your panel waterproof you will be serious competition to arri (if you make a two bye 1) having worked on projects like cowboy bebo which saw us using hundreds and hundreds of s60 and s360 sky panels the amount of time and effort that went into making them rain safe for out door night shoots was painful. and damaging them was an expensive exercise.
Congrats Aupture

I’m ready to buy two 600Ds right now. I hope they aren’t backordered for 8 months like the 300D II was. But I guess in the world of covid, that will probably be the case. I’ll be preordering mine the second they are available.

The Nova looks cool too, but I would like to hear some specs on output. There are actually a ton of low to mid-level 1×2 RGB panels on the market now. What none of them do is match the output of the Skypanel S60. The Titan is the only one that surpasses it. I think for me to consider the Nova, it’s going to need to have some serious punch.

Their live stream announcement said 9000 LUX at 1m at 5500K! By comparison their LS-1s panel is like 10500 LUX at 1m.
