At BIRTV in Beijing, Aputure were showing their new Amaran AL-M1mini LED light. Filmmakers loved the original AL-M9. But based off of the feedback from users, Aputure decided to make one that was even brighter and more versatile – the AL-MX. Designed with a metal build and SMD LED bulbs, the AL-MX is the most durable, powerful, bicolor LED light that can easily fit into your pocket.
The AL-MX is more powerful than any other light of its size. It packs 128 SMD LED bulbs into a credit card-sized panel. With both CRI & TLCI ratings over 95, and a wide 120° beam angle that outputs 3200 lux at 0.3m, the possibilities for this light are endless.
The AL-MX features a 5-step adjustable color temperature ranging from 2800-6500K. While most bicolor lighting fixtures range from 3200-5600K, this expanded range provides you with even more
options for creative applications.
A wide range of color temperature from 2800-6500K. AL-MX will be more flexible when creating different lighting effect.
The AL-MX is compact and durable. Made of aircraft-grade aluminum and featuring an extremely efficient heat management system, the AL-MX is built to last for years in conditions of all kinds. In addition, with a 1/4 screw and universal cold shoe mount, you can easily install the AL-MX on cameras, light stands and so on.
The AL-MX inherits the M9’s legacy. Though a bit thicker in build, it has the same “credit card sized” design and weighs just 278g. In addition, with a built-in lithium rechargeable battery and USB Type-C charging port, the MX lasts an average of 1 hour at full power and 4 hours at minimum power.
The AL-MX also comes with a bonus Boost option, which goes above 30% of maximum brightness when you need that extra kick. Capable of operating at 60-second intervals, boost mode gives filmmakers one more option for when “the brightest ever” still isn’t enough.
