At Cine Gear 2022 Aputure had a very large 2000-square foot booth to show all their current offerings plus two demo areas that are packed with lights to see them in action.
They also had a demo room in the back with some bright-colored items and an ARRI Alexa so you can play around and see how the lights look. They stated the booth is the largest one they have ever had at a trade show.
Aputure announced seven new accessories for the P600c LED panel. softbox, barn doors, 45° metal grid, space light, dual head yoke, pole yoke, plus a rain shield. As usual, Aputure has set very reasonable pricing for all of the new kit. Prices range from $69 to $349.
This Aputure Softbox is a 24 x 36″ softbox specifically designed for the Nova P600c LED panel. The softbox features a highly reflective interior for improved light efficiency, and this medium-sized light modifier increases the overall surface area of the panel to enable a soft, wraparound quality. Includes a 45° light control grid that narrows and concentrates the light’s beam for directional control. Retails for $149
The Aputure Barndoors slide directly into the fixture’s accessory slots. They allow you to quickly shape the light, adjust the panel’s illuminance area, and include fabric light leak covers to eliminate excess light spill from the sides of the barndoors. The four-leaf barndoors provide sharp cuts and are an excellent tool for controlling light. Retails for $199 USD
45° Metal Grid
The 45° Metal Grid slides directly into the unit’s accessory slots to narrow the spread of light and eliminate spill. It features a lightweight and low-profile design and allows you to further control your fixture without any noticeable gain in size or weight. Retails for $69 USD
Space Light Diffuser
The Aputure Space Light Diffuser features a cylindrical design, which is achieved by mounting the light into a suspended circular-shaped frame. This allows the panel to spread light 360° wider area. Offering 360° illumination with an adjustable light control skirt, the inner layer of the light control skirt is slightly reflective, and in combination with the black outer layer, it completely eliminates spill light. A versatile modifier with multiple creative applications, when only one side of the skirt is rolled down, the soft light is given direction.

Dual Head Yoke
The Aputure Dual Head Yoke allows you to mount two Nova P600c lamp heads onto a single yoke, providing the equivalent surface area of a 2 x 2′ light fixture.

By rotating the knobs affixed to the yoke, the pan and tilt axes of the fixture can be independently adjusted for 360° rotation. A pole can be used to operate the pan and tilt axes from a lower height, removing the need to climb up to the lighting grid when the angle of the Nova P600c needs to be adjusted. Retails for $349 USD
