Aputure AL-528 overview

  • 1Description

The on or off-camera Amaran AL-528C Bi-Color LED Flood Light from Aputure is an LED panel that uses 528 CRI 95+ LEDs to render colors with precision and accuracy. Color is variable from a warm 3,200K to daylight-balanced 5,500K,+ meaning that you can easily match other light sources, balance the unit with ambient light conditions or use the color range creatively, all without resorting to time-intensive filtering. The AL-528C produces a flood 75-degree beam angle with a brightness of 725 lux at a distance of 3.3', and features a stepless rear dimming dial for adjusting light output from 0 to 100% and a second dial that displays your selected color temperature. The AL-528C can be powered by the included multi-voltage 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 Amaran AL-528C ships the previously mentioned multi-voltage AC adapter, 5/8" tilting mount for stand mounting, a 5/8" spigot with 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads, a diffusion filter to soften the light's output and a waterproof case with shoulder strap.

Variable Color
With color temperature variable 3200-5500K, you can match other light sources or ambient light scenarios or vary the color creatively without filters
Powerful and Compact
The AL-528C has 528 LED bulbs 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 LED bulbs featuring a color-rendering index of 88, the AL-528 casts a more radiant, natural light
Diffusion Filter
The AL-528C comes a white diffusing filter to soften the light's output
Frictionless Brightness Control
Freely rotate the brightness wheel to adjust the AL-528C's 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-528C 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
Waterproof Carrying Case
Included with the AL-528C 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-528C Bi-Color LED Flood Light is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Huge Time Saver The variable color temperature is a hug timesaver on set, I can't say how great it is to not have to keep changing gels constantly. Having it be so lightweight and the optional battery power are huge pluses as well. My only complaint is the brightness--pales in comparison to the 528S (understandably so given the wider throw and number of bulbs. I may pick up a second.
