Item description

Ideal for video recordings
The Bi-Color 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.

Adjustable color temperature
You can adjust the color temperature of the Bi-Color LED video light to the individual shooting situation as desired. A stepless adjustment from 3200K to 5500K is possible.

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 but a smaller luminance.

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 battery charge display with 4 LED 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 is included, with which you can achieve soft and even lighting. 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.
