Aputure AL-H overview

  • 1Description

The Amaran AL-H160 from Aputure is an on-camera LED light that utilizes 160 LEDs with a CRI of 95+ to deliver daylight illumination with high color accuracy. The light produces a 60° beam angle with a brightness of 750 lux at a distance of 3.3'. A step-less dimming dial is provided on the back of the unit for adjusting light output. The light can be powered by either six AA batteries or an optional Sony NP-F/FM/QM/FP/FH/FV type battery, with four LED indicator lights on the back of the unit displaying the remaining battery life.

To create a larger light source, up to nine AL-H160 panels can be attached together using extension slots on all four sides of the light. The slim and frameless design of the light means that when multiple lights are connected, there are no gaps or light leaks. One extension attachment piece comes included, which also serves as a 1/4"-20 adapter. Also included are a tilt-adjusting shoe mount adapter for camera mounting, a diffusion filter, and an orange warming filter.

    Aputure AL-H reviews

    Amaran AL-H160 On-Camera LED Light is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful Light at great price We bought this to replace our old z96 which is almost exactly identical to this Amaran one. What's great? : The output is bright but also dimmable. Supplied diffusers (tungsten & frosted). Good CRI for relatively cast free light. Ability to put it on a hot shoe, light stand or gang lights together. Takes AAs or Sony batteries. The bad?: Nothing really. I'm not really sure why people buy $$$ lights when they can have this for a fraction of the cost with equal or better output. Don't waste your money on higher priced lights. Just get a couple of these. I would have given it 5 stars but I would light to see a couple more modifiers like barn doors or snoots ;)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great light I have found more uses off camera for this light than on camera (great light for searching under beds or in dark closets). But reciently I used it just after sunset to provide some off camera lighting for portrate pictures and it worked very well. I love that it can use two battery sources (rechargable sony batteries or 6 AA batteries). The only real drawback is at full brightness it seems to eat through the battery quicker than I would think based upon product description.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but does not dim very low Great CRI and decent brightness for 160 bulbs. But it does not dim as low as others I have (that were less). There are times I need this for fill in REALLY dark places, and it's important to be able to go super low on power. Id guess this one to have about a three stop range. My others have more like a six stop range.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Lighting I haven't had a chance to actually put this to use but it gets very bright. I love the filters that come with it. The shoe mount is fine it just didn't work for my ikan ELE-DRGFLY DragonFly Handheld Rig for DSLR's. I had to buy a new one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light, could be better. Great light, beautiful color, but cheap mount, and also I really wish the filters were magnetic, they work fine, but it's just not as easy as the magnetic kind. Also it does not dim as low as I would like. It's not 0-100% it's like 10-100% and 10 is sometimes already too bright. I also have the 198, but got this one hoping for a little less brightness at the bottom. I also expected a smaller size but was very surprised they were the same size light, just less leds in this one. Crazy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect light for the money It's very good and very powerful. The only drawback is the hot shoe mount, because it is very plasticy to
    Date published: 2015-08-14
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good value for money Very practical, compact size, durable (keep the plastic cover on the front in order to avoid scratches) and can be combined by stacking one on top of the other. Power consumption is moderate. We've used about seven or eight of the Amaram AL-H160 so far and had troubles with only one, and that also only due to melting batteries that ruined the plastic interior (no fault with the product itself).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product At A Great Price I purchased the AL-H160 to use as an additional LED light for tight areas and close ups. It worked out great providing just the right amount of light for fill or as a highlight. I also like that it can be simply used with AA batteries or a Sony battery pack.
