Aputure F10 Fresnel Attachment for the 600d Pro Review

The Aputure F10 Fresnel Attachment is the latest accessory for the LS 600d Pro. It allows you to turn the COB point source fixture into a Fresnel easily and most importantly, without emptying your wallet.

Size & weight

I’m not going to sugarcoat it, the F10 Fresnel is large and heavy. I independently weighed it at 3.9kg (8.59 lb). Just as a reference, the actual 600d Pro light head weighs in at 4.64kg / 10.23 lb (Including Yoke).

Now, there is a very legitimate reason why the F10 Fresnel is so big. When building a Fresnel for a COB LED fixture you need to match the size of that COB element to the size of the Fresnel. Often I have seen small-sized Fresnel attachments for these COB LED lights that are too small and they don’t work well. If the Fresnel attachment is too small in relation to the COB, the light getting to the Fresnel won’t be optimized. In this case, size does matter!
