Included with the fixture are magnetically attached diffusion, CTO, and CTB filters.

    AL-M9 Amaran Pocket-Sized Daylight-Balanced LED Light is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent little light For the price, you can't beat it. The tiny size won't get in your way and the built in battery means you don't have to worry about cabling to it. The battery lasted the full 90 minutes as advertised, and the light is very pleasing, plenty bright. I like that the beam pattern is very wide and doesn't give the spotlight/flashlight effect I feared it would. The filters included are simple gels and feel very flimsy when attached. I ended up throwing them away. The mounting bracket feels like cheap plastic and I'm worried about breaking it. I would be happy to pay two or three times more for a little better build quality, but I'm very pleased with this overall.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Take it everywhere What I measured: - 5100K no green or magenta cast - 1:30 hours of use before it dims - 1:45 hours before it cuts off - 3:21 hours to charge If you want to see what it is like on skin tones (not bad) check out my video by searching Dave Dugdale AL-M9.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent little light You get a lot of nice, soft light for the price. I do detect some color cast from it, though. The battery doesn't last a crazy long time if it's always on, but in bursts it can last a long time. But it's USB powered, so that's easy to mitigate. The diffusion paper is flimsy and the lack of a proper mounting system makes it look silly. Not a fan of the overall adjustment knob or shoe adapter. It does get pretty bright and can be very useful in certain situations.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love these miniature monsters! What an amazing light. I bought 4 of them and I thought they were decent when I watched the Aputure videos but I was pleasantly surprised that the lights are even brighter than I thought they'd be. I throw them all around my scene to bring contrast in places where bigger light fixtures can't venture and the size of these things are so surprising given the light they emit. The filters, diffusion and on camera shoe make it a complete lighting solution for run 'n' gun shooting and even for interviews if you know how to control light. Buy it!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice little fill light for still photography I am trying to lighten the load of equipment I carry around. The pop up flashes on my d-800 and fz 1000 do not behave as I would like when using any of the automatic modes. This little LED does a great job of filling in shadows and creating a nice catchlight in the subjects eyes.Very nice features include a 10 click power adjustment,USB plugin recharging and compact size.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good light, good price Good light for a good price. The build quality is really good and the light is very bright for it's size. cosmetically it could look better but that's neither here nor there. it's not terrible. the dimmer feature is awesome and the magnetic cover is solid. I did a lot of research before buying this. its really bright without being something heavy or clunky to go on top of your DSLR (or whatever you use). I use it with a gimbal/stabilizer so it didn't drastically change the weight and me having to adjust. the pouch it comes with is nice too. really dope item. buy it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super convenient within a small package I'm pretty impressed with this little light. Has an incredibly high CRI rating. Quite bright for such a small credit card sized light and and be put anywhere. Car shoots are super easy to light. These lights can be mounted anywhere within the car. They have a magnetic diffuser on the front which you can put your gels in between. Very creative concept!
