Aputure has lifted the curtain on four new Amaran series COB LED lights: the 100d, 100x, 200d and 200x. All these new models come with Bowens lamp-compatible fittings, but are aimed towards the economy end of the market for the more budget-conscious users. 

The 'd' suffix indicates that the lights are daylight balanced, for easy control of color reproduction in the studio. Those bearing the 'x' nomenclature, meanwhile, are bi-color units, with adjustable color temperatures on a scale ranging from 2700–6500K.
