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 meters, 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’s seamless design requires no extra knobs or handles. Simply twist the lens ring, and adjust the spot/flood controls.
The shell of the F10 can withstand the heat of the LS 600d Pro, and due to its collapsible, aspherical focusing lens, it can stow away to a depth of 6.8 inches (172.5mm).
DROP-IN ACCESSORY SLOT
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 on the Fresnel for proper light shaping, and can even fit a 13-inch (330mm) scrim.
