    I don't think that is fair. I've had good customer services from several Chinese lighting and grip companies. Aputure are great, I have five of their fixtures and no complaints.

    Anyone here received a 300D II ? Mine has been on backorder since a few days after it was available to order. Would like to make this purchase before the end of the year... may have to go another direction if they still aren't shipping in any quantities....

    I've had mine for a while. However, I ordered from Adorama same day that it went up on their site. Try Hot Rod Cameras in California.

    What are you thoughts on the 300D? What is the fan noise like (for interview use)
    Thanks

    Zero issues with fan noise on the mk2. The first version is quiet at the head but has loud fans in the power supply, so you need to either keep it at a distance using longer cables or use sound blankets or something.

    Hot Rod & Samy’s appear to be the most successful in filling orders, perhaps because they are located in LA which is where Aputure have their USA offices. If ordering from Samy’s contact Karen McHugh in Pro Sales. Picked up two 300d2 from her when they were out of stock everywhere else.

    Also, joker has a bi-color 300 with lenses for less than an hmi. Still a different price bracket, but more versatile than Aputure and more affordable than Arri Orbiter.
