If the Aputure LS 600c Pro description doesn’t already wow you, it will if you lay your hands on it. It connects flawlessly with the Aputure Sidus link app, and the color-matching capabilities within the app are beyond impressive. The light itself has great output and capability (it’s powerful!). I can manipulate the hue and saturation from 0–360° to create any color I can imagine. I’ve been playing with it for over a month and haven’t found anything I don’t like; on the contrary, I’ve never before been so excited to play with any piece of gear.
