The on or off-camera Amaran AL-528S Daylight LED Spot 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 spot 25° beam angle with a brightness of 4,380 lux at a distance of 3.3' and features a stepless rear dimming dial for adjusting light output from 0 to 100%. The AL-528S 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-528S 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-528S 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-528S casts a more radiant, natural light

Color Temperature and Diffusion

The AL-528S 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-528S 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-528S 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-528S 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

question

I am looking for continuous lighting for portraits with a medium format film camera. I would be shooting individuals, not groups. Would this light work for headshots and full body shots?
Asked by: paul l.
I'm a video producer with a photography background (not a full-time photographer), but I really don't see why you cannot depending on the speed and color balance of your film. I wouldn't use it as a sole source for headshots, but I actually used it for a food shoot to soften the shadows of a daylight source.

question

What wattage is this light equivalent to? Maybe a 200 watt tungsten ouput?
Asked by: jeff
I don't know the answer as to wattage. More than bright enough for my needs I find these lights very useful for shadow elimination and highlighting the face
