Hardware: Aputure LED Lights
Illuminate your shot with natural and lifelike LED lighting from Aputure.
Woah… I won Aputure 's twitter giveaway! Let's unbox the the Aputure Amaran 200d and the Aputure Lantern (softbox) — which I'm most excited to check out!
Aputure LED lights are very well known and very popular, and for very good reason. They're fantastic. But that doesn't mean the competition isn't coming…
Here's another LED light for your consideration! This one is a totally flat panel LED with no visible bright spots, and is color temperature adjustable. Cool! (…or warm, your choice). And while we're at it, let's see how it compares to the other LEDs I have in the studio.
This is just one mass unboxing free-for-all… and there's a little bit for everyone. Looking for some LED lights? Take a look at the Aputure Amaran Tri-8s. Need a simple stabilizing tripod alternative for your camera? The Platypod Max just might be for you. Would an external monitor make your workflow easier? The “new kid on the block” PortKeys LH5T has a touch screen! Want to use your phone as a second (or third) camera? The Viewflex Video Kit VF-H6 Video Grip will get the job done!
There's another tiny LED light in town, from Sokani. I'm gonna compare it to the Aputure AL-M9 tiny LED and see how they stack up to each other. Let's have a look!
Aputure is known for making very good LED lights that are popular among the YouTube community. They reached out to me to see if I was interested in doing a video on their Amaran HR672 (following my look at their little AL-M9), and I figured many of you would appreciate it — so here we go!
A long-time viewer shared the Aputure AL-M9 LED Light with me with me at the NAB Conference. Is this the best tiny little LED light you can buy?
