The First Ever
The Aputure F10 Fresnel is the first industry-standard 10-inch Fresnel made for modular Bowens Mount fixtures. With its wide 250mm (9.84in.) glass Fresnel, the F10 both immensely intensifies the output of a point-source LED, but also results in a quality of light lighting technicians will find similar to a Tungsten 5K or Studio 2K.
The F10 Fresnel functions at its best when paired with the Aputure LS 600D Pro, a 600W Daylight COB LED. Together, this combination eclipses Studio 2K Tungsten lights, and approaches the intensity of 5K Tungsten fixtures at flood. With a combined flood output of 11,440 lux and spot output of 29,300 lux at 3 metres. The 600d Pro and F10 Fresnel even compete on par with higher-powered HMIs.
The F10 Fresnel matches the unique design of the Fresnel 2X, utilizing a two-stage optical system to maximize light output. Utilizing a rear aspherical focusing element, the F10 Fresnel optimizes the output of an LS 600d Pro to fill the front Fresnel Element, resulting in up to 340% additional output in Flood mode.
To ergonomically and precisely adjust its variable 15°-45° beam angle, the F10 Fresnel uses Aputure’s helicoid focus design introduced in the Fresnel 2X. This seamless design requires no extra knobs or handles. Simply twist the lens ring and adjust the spot/flood controls.
Minimised Light Leaks
Building on experience from the Fresnel 2X, the F10 Fresnel uses an offset ventilation design in its heat-resistant body that allows for airflow while minimizing light leaks.
Despite its impressive 250mm (9.84in.) fresnel diameter, the F10 Fresnel maintains a compact heat-resistant construction. The shell of the F10 can withstand the heat of the LS 600D Pro, and due to its collapsible, and aspherical focusing lens, it can stow away to a depth of 6.8 inches (172.5mm).
Drop-In Accessory Slot
Another of many "firsts", the F10 Fresnel is also the first Bowens Mount Fresnel to feature an industry-standard drop-in accessory slot. This heavy-duty accessory slot allows users to mount the F10 Barn Doors (see accessories) on the Fresnel for proper light shaping, and can even fit a 13-inch (330mm) scrim.
