Aputure Introduces Amaran AL-MW LED Light

Aputure has introduced the Amaran AL-MW LED light, a small, single-color, continuous LED light that runs on battery power and can be set to 10 selectable output levels. 

Aputure said the new LED fixture has high TLCI and CRI ratings for color accuracy, as well as special effects modes. Its small size of 4.6 x 1.7 x 1.25 inches the light ultra-portable.

The Amaran has five lighting effects: lightning, fireworks, TV, a flickering light bulb and paparazzi. The light is submersible to 30 feet. Its 110-element C.O.B (chip on board) structure is semi-random, avoiding the multiple shadows seen with many small LED lights.

The Amaran has a built-in battery with USB-C charging, runs up 24 hours in continuous operation, has 10 selectable output levels, includes filters and diffusers, is IP68 rated and has >95 CRI and TLCI ratings.

The light is priced at $209.
