Aputure Amaran AL-528 LED Light
Hypop Official Review
Here at Hypop, we pride ourselves on our selection of quality brands. The Aputure Amaran range is an affordable yet professional step into the world of video lighting. Today we’re reviewing the AL-528 LED light panel.
At first glance, you will notice its slim and durable design. Approximately the size of an iPad, Aputure have announced that it is about 30% thinner than competitor LEDS - which is perfect for portability.
The unit itself has a digital brightness display, double power supply system (AC/Lithium Battery), brightness wheel and battery power indicator. When turned on, the 528 LED gives you maximum output which features a strong and steady light, controlled by the brightness wheel. The LED spread is 75 degrees at 5500K with high colour rendering (RA>85).
What’s in the box? The AL-528 LED light comes with a swivel mount, 18V power supply, power cord, diffuser panel, warming panel, spare LEDs, instructions and a very compact carry bag to easily hold everything listed.
The AL-528 comes in three models:
- AL-528W – Wide Angle
- AL-528S – Spotlight
- AL-528C – Colour Temperature Adjustable
During usage, we tested no flicker up to 1/8000s and found that overall the AL-528 is very simple to operate and extremely user friendly – which is key here at Hypop. We also found that the panels did not overheat, due to its use of natural heat dissipation – which is natural and safe, another plus! So if you’re looking for an affordable and reliable video lighting solution, we highly recommend the Aputure Amaran range.
