Aputure AL-528 overview

  • 1Description

The on or off-camera Amaran AL-528W Daylight LED Flood Light from Aputure is a daylight-balanced (5500K) LED light that delivers precise color accuracy thanks to its high CRI 95+ rated LEDs. The light produces a wide 75° beam angle with a brightness of 1,220 lux at a distance of 3.3' and features a stepless rear dimming dial for adjusting light output from 0 to 100%. The AL-528W can be powered by the included AC adapter or optional Sony F/FM/QM-type batteries using the dual rear battery slots. Four LED indicator lights on the back of the unit display the remaining battery life.

The 9.37 x 7.48 panel is only 1.26" thick and generates little heat, allowing it to squeeze into places where other lights, especially incandescents, just can't go. The AL-528W ships with a multi-voltage AC adapter, 5/8" tilting mount for stand mounting, a 5/8" spigot with 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads, an orange 5500 - 3200K conversion filter, a diffusion filter to soften the light's output, and a carry case with shoulder strap.

Powerful and Compact
The AL-528W has 528 LEDs packed into a compact design that is the same size as the original iPad. It's an LED light that doesn't sacrifice power for portability
High Color-Rendering LEDs
With Amaran's advanced LEDs featuring a color-rendering index of 95+, the AL-528W casts a more radiant, natural light
Color Temperature and Diffusion
The AL-528W comes with two filters: a tungsten filter to change the color temperature from 5500 to 3200K, and a white diffusing filter to soften the light's output
Frictionless Brightness Control
Freely rotate the brightness wheel to adjust the AL-528W intensity. An adjacent LCD screen displays the power of your light by percentage for repeatability and consistency
Slim Profile
The Amaran is only 1.26" thick - significantly thinner than many competitive LED units
Double Power Supply System
The AL-528W can be powered by two ways: AC adapter or 2 Lithium-ion batteries. The two methods of power can also be used simultaneously so you can charge your batteries while using your light. The Lithium-ion batteries are commonly used (Sony F/FM/QM series) and easily sourced. It also features a 4 LED lights to indicate remaining battery power. When the light is almost out of power, the status LEDs blink red
Carrying Case
Included with the AL-528W is a convenient case for your light and all of its accessories, such as filters, lamp bracket, and the AC adapter. The compact design makes it perfect for shooting on the run

    Aputure AL-528 reviews

    Amaran AL-528W Daylight LED Flood Light is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice package I bought this light a couple of months ago, but first had a chance to use it on a shoot this morning. It was a pleasure to work with. I had access to AC power, so I used that. My director, who is finicky about light, really liked the light from the Aputure. I liked the fact that it was easy to put up, had a digital readout, and seemed sturdy and well-made. I own a couple of other Aputure lights, and they have quickly become my go-to LEDs. I have incandescent lights as well, but they are hot, have to run on AC, and you can't touch them to load them up until they cool down. I'm in the market for at least one more. The bag is nice, has pockets for everything. Finally someone actually thought out how to pack lights!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Bright, Adjustable, and Fairly Portable Light Source I haven't had a chance to use this light much yet, but I am generally happy with it. I got it primarily as a portable light source for outdoor photography, and it will work fine for that, although it is a bit heavy and bulky, with batteries. I like the clear indication of battery charge and the display while it is charging, and the light is very bright, but properly adjustable. I am also hoping to use it as a light table. The individual and distinct LEDs make that more difficult but I hope to find a translucent material to put a few inches above it which will hopefully even the light out. It appears to be well made and is brighter than I expected.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised by this useful, affordable light. I have a halogen Lowell lighting system for videography that I've been using with less and less frequency and I wanted a quick, easy to tote, set up and use LED system that was affordable. This really fit the bill! With its combination A/C battery power options, a dimmer, and white and orange diffusions - this light works much better - and much brighter - than I would have expected. With another couple of these, I would gladly ditch the heavy, power-sucking, dimmer-less Lowells I now (barely) use. With cameras that do well in low light, I'm not trying to fill a room - just get a nice light on a face or two. And this light does that quite well - and quite affordably. The build quality is not exceptional but it is good - and again - for the price - surprisingly so.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the buck! Great light for the price. Its surprisingly well color balanced. Not pink, not green but almost dead center white. Ive asked the gaffer on a american set here in Canada. He checked it with a colormeter and said to me that it was almost perfect white. Great multipurpose light for shooting!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does everything we need it to do We have shot several covers with these LED panels (we purchased 2) and are very pleased with all aspects of their performance. We bought them to essentially replace our old tungsten lighting kit. Lighting was bright, and didn't change the subject color appreciably. We especially like the dimming knob which allows us to scale back the intensity of the lighting on the fly. All in all, a great product at an affordable price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty decent lighting I think the lights are pretty good. They are extremey bright. They are perfect in regards to the degree of light out put that I need. The only issue is I'm afraid of how long they would last. The first one I recieved, one of the LED lights was not working. I exchanged it for another one. Everything works fine but if you put in batteries and move it a little, the lights go on and off. They are still quality lights but it's best to buy insurance and be very careful with these lights. I recommend them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very versatile, well made light The Amaran AL-528W is easy to work with and provides consistent diffused lighting. Because it is light weight, you can use light weight stands when away from the studio. Its battery life is good. and rather than fading as it nears the end of the batteries charge, it simply shuts of. The adjustable output control is smooth and seems accurate. The digital read out is helpful. One of the neatest things about the light is they built in a battery charger when you are running on AC. None of the other battery powered LEDs I own do this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light. Leave your assistant at home First and foremost, I shoot interiors and architecture professionally for Interior designers and architects, both commercial and residential. I've only had this light for about a week and a half, and I have already used it twice. This little light is a wonderful tool to have. When shooting interiors, there are always corners of the space being photographed that is usually in shadow. This light has solved that problem, lessening my time post editing. It has a fairly good angle of light projection at about 75 degrees as promised. It is lightweight, and the fact that it comes in a carrying case is a real plus. It can be handheld, or mounted on a light stand. It is far more convenient than hauling around a 24 or 36 softbox, although I do use these as well. I have found the color rendition index (CRI) of 95 to be fairly accurate, and the light comes very close to natural daylight. The output is adjustable if you want a softer effect. All-in-all, I think this is a good product, and I'm pleased with it's performance.
