LIGHT DOME MINI III

Compact Circular Softbox with All-New Quick-Folding, Flat-Pack Design

ALL NEW DESIGN

The Light Dome Mini III is Aputure’s compact circular softbox solution for Bowens Mount lights with a brand new quick-folding, flat-pack design. Add a touch of softness and save valuable time on set with the ideal 2 foot (60cm) small softbox for your lighting kit.

FOR PHOTO & VIDEO

Designed for studio photography and video professionals, the Light Dome Mini III is the ultimate compact, quick, and portable softbox. The Light Dome Mini III’s flat-pack design allows photographers to create a similar light quality of a beauty dish but with a smaller footprint, making it ideal for travel and tight spaces. And as a complete and portable ready-to-go solution, it is designed to improve your workflow, so you can achieve more with less.

SPEED UP YOUR SETUP

With the all-new quick-folding design, building the Light Dome Mini III is now faster than ever, saving you valuable time on set. Being among the fastest circular softboxes to set up and break down on the market, the Light Dome Mini III can snap into its full parabolic shape in seconds, allowing you to start shooting sooner.

FLAT-OUT BRILLIANT

Make more room for lights with the Light Dome Mini III’s flat-pack design. Unlike traditional quick softboxes that maintain their cylindrical shape when packed, the Light Dome Mini III’s quick-setup speed ring folds into a slim, flat profile. This portable and travel-ready softbox requires less setup time, and allows you to free up more space for other filmmaking tools when transporting equipment.

ONE MODIFIER RULES ALL

Simplify your toolkit with just one softbox for all your Bowens lights so you can work smarter, not harder. Like other Aputure softboxes, the Light Dome Mini III features the universal Bowens Mount and is the perfect pairing for an array of point-source fixtures up to 600W of output, ranging from the Aputure Light Storm series to the amaran Bowens Mount lights.

LIGHT CONFIDENTLY

The Light Dome Mini III provides the quick-setup and slim profile benefits of the Light Dome III in a smaller build. Craft your soft light with the included diffusion cloth or gold / silver inner baffle reflector, or create more contrast and depth in your images with the included 40º fabric light control grid. With all the tools packed into a carrying bag, the Light Dome Mini III is a ready-to-go solution for fine tuning the perfect soft-footprint lighting.

PERFECT CIRCLE. PERFECT EYELIGHT.

Create beautiful, round eyelights with the Light Dome Mini III’s 32-sided circular design to breathe life into the eyes of any subject. As the most circular shape of any softbox on the market, this compact beauty-dish style softbox allows you to create rounder reflections that mimic natural light sources like the sun.

Using the Light Dome Mini III to light over talent in a studio shoot, creating a beautiful, soft light output.

TOUGH AS STEEL

The Light Dome Mini III is designed to keep up with the fast-paced world of studio photography and video professionals. Its new 16 heavy-duty steel rods are sturdier and more durable, and maintain their parabolic shape better than the Light Dome Mini II.

The 35″ Light Dome II uses 16 rods to create 32 points of axis, allowing an exceptionally round softbox that produces perfectly circular catchlights.

QUALITY FABRIC GRID
In addition to the multiple diffusion options, the Light Dome II also includes a studio grade 40​° ​fabric light control grid to help fine tune your soft light.

UNIVERSAL MOUNT
The new Light Dome II is designed to work with all fixtures from the Light Storm COB family. It is also compatible with a wide variety of Bowens mount lighting systems, the most common mount used in the world of photography.
