The P300c utilizes warm white and cool white LEDs, in addition to the typical RGB chipset used in colour-mixing lights. This chipset increases its output, skin tone accuracy, and tonal variety compared to other RGB or RGBW LED fixtures, making it suited for any filmmaking environment. Combining the stellar colour quality with an intense output of over 9,000 lux at 1 metre, a CCT range of 2,000K-10,000K, and a peak tungsten SSI of 85, the Nova is Aputure’s most versatile light to date.
The Nova P300c is capable of outputting over 9,000 lux, at a distance of 1 meter, while maintaining a wide 120° beam angle. By combining this intense output with the wide beam angle of a soft light source and 0-100% stepless dimming control, the P300c can easily fill large areas, allowing you to control the ambient lighting of your entire scene instantly.
Incredibly wide CCT range
The Nova P300c features the most extensive expanded bi-colour range of any Aputure light, capable of producing white light from 2,000K to 10,000 Kelvin. The P300c also features the ability to adjust the white light’s green-magenta shift while in CCT mode, allowing you to match ambient lighting or manipulate the scene to your choosing.
Superior colour rendition
Using a unique blend of colour-accurate LEDs in this newer LED chipset, the Nova P300c achieves a tungsten SSI score of 85, and a D55 daylight SSI score of 74. And like all Aputure lights, the Nova P300c produces impeccable CRI and TLCI values of 95+ – even with a colour temperature range of 2,000 to 10,000 kelvin.
Full colour tunability
By using an RGBWW chipset that results in higher quality colour mixing and spectral reproduction than typical RGB and RGBW LED fixtures, the Nova P300c can produce more than 90% of the colours within the Rec.2020 colour space. The P300c features HSI, RGB, and industry-standard X,Y colour controls, allowing for up to 1 billion colour combinations and precise colour matching. The Nova P300c even has a built-in preset library of over 300 industry-standard gels, for ease of access in fast-paced shooting environments.
Compact, adaptable design
The Nova P300c utilizes a built-in power supply to support its 300W light engine, reducing the overall weight of the fixture, and simplifying the user experience. The P300c also utilizes a lightweight aluminium shell and yoke, and the same dual junior/baby pin featured on the Spotlight Mount.
Extendable control box
The Nova P300c uses an extendable handheld control box that connects to the light via a 5-pin XLR cable. With both a shorter 0.6m and a longer 3m head cable, the control box can be neatly mounted onto the rear of the panel for quick, compact setups, or snapped into the Lighting Clamp on a stand when rigging the fixture out of arm’s reach. Featuring an OLED display with three control knobs that allow users to fluidly move throughout the menu and adjust lighting parameters, the handheld control box provides a more ergonomic user experience. The control box also has four user-adjustable preset buttons to save and recall lighting parameters from any mode quickly.
Multiple control methods
Like other professional Aputure lights, the Nova P300c includes built-in 5-pin DMX512 and Sidus Mesh compatibility. Users can select one of the Nova’s several DMX profiles for more complex programming or use Aputure’s Sidus Mesh technology to control the P300c using any Sidus Link compatible smartphone or iPad, without any separate hardware modules.
Built-in lighting FX
The Nova P300c is Aputure’s first lighting fixture capable of supporting the full library of 15 lighting FX, including: Fireworks, Paparazzi, Faulty Bulb, Lightning, TV, Pulsing, Strobe, Explosion, Club Lights, Candle, Fire, Welding, Cop Car, Colour Chase, and Party Lights.
The Sidus Link ecosystem
As the first professional colour-mixing fixture in the Aputure product family, the Nova P300c joins the Sidus Mesh ecosystem, allowing for mobile control from a compatible smartphones or iPads with the Sidus Link app. With the Sidus Link Mesh Network, you can control up to 100 fixtures, including the LS C300d II, LS 300x, and MC, with each additional light fixture increasing the range of the network for a maximum range of up to 400 meters. Sidus Link allows users to control every aspect of a light’s output, including brightness, CCT, HSI, RGB, XY, Effects, Light Source presets, and even grants users the ability to match existing light sources or colours using the smartphone’s camera. And with the ability to save a virtually unlimited number of presets to your Sidus Link account, you’ll always be able to recall your favourite looks.
The Nova P300c is an incredibly powerful tool for any filmmaker. Whether you’re on a large film set with complex programming and light control needs or with a guerilla crew who needs to be able to match any new environment, the P300c will help you achieve your vision.
