Does any one have experience with the Aputure 120D and 120T? The reviews online so far seem to be very happy with them. I checked the 120T (tungsent) version at Sammy camera in Hollywood, unfortunately they don't have the 120D (daylight 6000k) yet.

 

I am very interested in getting a set of Aputure 120D with the Fresnel lens as a daylight version of my Arri 650 kit.

 

Any suggestions if you think I should invest in something else?

It's a good fixture - these are my measurements (Sekonic C700)

Aputure COB120T Tungsten RA: 98.2 R9: 89.3 CCT: 2931 Input Wattage: 135   Price: $595

 

Impressive color and flexibility, however once you add the fresnel lens etc... - it's still a 120w fixture ~ 500w tungsten.  And you're within spitting distance of the price of the Mole 200w Varimole which is a better fixture overall and more flexible in terms of color.  BUT you're right - there are advantages to the Aputure, namely the modifiers.  You can use it in all the bowens mods, which can be useful especially if you already own those.
