Ideal for video recordings
The LED Video Light Amaran by Aputure is optimal for video recordings with DSLRs, HDSLRs and digital camcorders. The LEDs are nearly heat-free, which predestines them for the macro and food fields. For videography, they are ideal as they are flicker-free. You can dim the light and thus adjust the light intensity steplessly. That way it can be used for all light situations without having to use more different lights. Due to the 16:9 widescreen design, the light gives a light characteristic in the movie format.
Combination of narrow angle and wide angle LEDs
In the LED light, wide angle LEDs are positioned around the narrow angle LEDs positioned in the center. The narrow angle LEDs achieve a higher and stronger light efficiency while the wide angle LEDs have a larger light angle.
Expandable to up to 9 LED panels
You can combine up to 9 LED panels to a large light. For this purpose, a connector is included with every LED. It creates a solid and secure connection between the individual panels. The entire LED of the light is frameless, an advantage which becomes particularly obvious when combining several LED panels: No black frames are visible in reflecting surfaces, which makes additional touch-up on the computer unnecessary. As the color temperature is stable, there are no color faults, when you combine several LED panels which again saves you time on post-processing.
Convenient and well-thought-out
The LED light is built extremely small and compact and therefore ideal for mobile use. Due to its small size, it can be used anywhere and fits into every camera bag. A display informs you of the charge state of the battery. Like this, it doesn’t happen anymore that your LED surprisingly runs out of energy in the middle of a shooting. The LED light can be powered both by a rechargeable battery and commercially available AA batteries. So if the energy runs out too early anyway, you can buy AA batteries anywhere and use them. The light is connected to the hot shoe of your camera with the help of a flash holder. A diffuser and an orange filter are included, with which you can achieve soft and even lighting or a very warm light mood. Both are clipped right onto the LED and are therefore securely connected. That way you cannot lose the filters and readjusting them is not necessary.
Attention: The specified light output and color temperature can only be achieved using the included rechargeable battery NP-FM55H. A charger to recharge this battery has to be purchased separately.

I find this bright, portable lighting unit is invaluable for portrait and macro photography, close-up detail and any time a shadow-free, clear light is needed, but where it really shines is for video taking. At the back of the unit is an ON/OFF switch, a battery level indicator and a knob whereby light intensity is regulated in seamless fashion. In my trials, the light output was steady with no visible flickering, which works really well for video. I am using rechargeable AA batteries which I remove when storing the unit away.
The LEDs stay cool, so it is possible to hand-hold it for precise and dynamic placement. The rigid plastic of the casing is very light and does not look very tough but, with careful use, it should last well. A little practice was needed to achieve good results, but it certainly beats filming without it! I am very happy with the test unit I was sent for evaluation and review purposes and am thinking of buying at least two more to join together or use separately. This light unit allows me to get near-professional results for a very moderate price.
