Light and bright,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Aputure Amaran AL-528S LED Light Digital Video Light Lamp for Canon Nikon LF217 (Electronics)
A very good quality light with just one little issue...
I looked at LED panels for ages and finally decided on 8 Amaran Panels (6-528S & 2-528W) I need them for high speed video.
The first set of S lights I bought didn't have UK spec plugs, they had travel adaptors... which for me was a non-starter so I bought my own 'kettle' leads for the mains adaptor, the W version came with a moulded UK spec 5a plug.
The lights work well on test and soon I'll be using them at events.
The little issue I have, with both sets of lights, is the included cylindrical spigot has 2 flat surfaces, when the spigot is tightened in the included Universal lamp bracket and the panel attached at the other end... the panel is not aligned parallel to the flat surface of the spigot: the panels are at various angles and so you can not use them tightened.. they need to be loose so they all can be pointed in the same direction. This oversight in production lets down an otherwise very good bit of kit.
I read that they would not work off mains power, without batteries in place, this is not my experience. All 8 panels worked with only the mains power in place. They also work with just the batteries in place.
I also read that there is a flickering and buzz... again, not my experience. With good quality NP F970, 6600mAh replica batteries that I'm using I have zero flicker and no buzz.
The lights work very well and other than the minor irritation of the alignment are very good quality LED panels.

Cheers or the review, I was wondering at what frame rate you were shooting up too that you didn't see any flicker? I'm looking to push to the 120 - 240 fps range..
