Aputure Tri-8 overview

  • 1Description

The Amaran Tri-8c Bi-Color LED Light with V-Mount Battery Plate from Aputure is a powerful, full-featured 10.3 x 7.8 x 3.6" LED light source with a rugged aircraft-grade aluminum body and an impact-proof casing that protects its 888 LEDs. The Tri-8c has a color temperature that's variable from a warm 2300K to a cool 6800K or anywhere in between to match other fixtures, ambient light situations, or just for creative effects. Light intensity is also variable and can be adjusted along with the color temperature on the fixture or at distances up to 492' with the included 3-channel wireless remote control. The light has a 45-degree beam angle for medium-wide coverage, an output equivalent to a 600W tungsten source, and a high CRI/TLCI rating of 95+, indicating accurate color rendering. Like all LED lights, this one runs barely warm to the touch thanks to a quiet fanless thermal management, making for a cooler studio and comfortable talent.

The Tri-8c can be stand-mounted via its 1/4"-20 tap or handheld vertically or horizontally by using the stainless steel U-handles at the back of the fixture. The Tri-8c is ready for worldwide use thanks to the inclusion of a 100-240 VAC adapter but it can also run on V-Mount-type batteries when mains power is unavailable. An EZ Box softbox is provided to soften the Tri-8c's output while adding a flattering quality of light with manageable contrast. A carry bag is also included.

High Power, Small Package
The Amaran Tri-8 packs impressive power in a small package. It packs 888 high-CRI (95+) LEDs into a 10.3 x 7.8" panel. The high LED count means the Tri-8 is capable of outputting 23,000 lux @ 1.6', which is equivalent to a 600W tungsten fixture.
AC or Battery Power
You can run the Tri-8 on mains current with the included adapter or on battery power thanks to the inclusion of two F970 batteries.
Thermal Management
The Amaran Tri-8 has a fanless thermal management system. With gold lamp beads on the inside, a custom aluminum plate, and the external increase of the flow-type cooling fins, cooling is maximized across the unit.
Solid Metal Build
The rugged Amaran Tri-8 has an aircraft-grade aluminum body and slim design, allowing for efficient heat airflow while maintaining a durable structure. To further enforce its durability, the LED bulbs are covered by an impact-proof polycarbonate casing.
Functionality and Portability
The stainless steel handles in the back of the light allow you to position the light either vertically or horizontally. The light can be used on a stand, or handheld for fast-paced on-the-go shoots.
EZ Box Included
The Amaran Tri-8 comes with an EZ Box to maximize your light-shaping capabilities. The EZ Box softbox prevents spill light, reduces contrast, and provides high quality diffusion. Since the Tri-8 is virtually the same size as the 528/672, the EZ Box and grid are also compatible with this new light fixture. This also includes a growing list of third party softbox offerings that can work with the Amaran Tri-8.
VA Remote Included
The Amaran Tri-8 comes with the same 2.4 GHz remote used on most of Aputure's lights. The VA remote has three channels, four groups, and works up to 492' away. Using the remote, you are able to control the brightness and color temperature of the Tri-8.

    Aputure Tri-8 reviews

    Amaran Tri-8c Bi-Color LED Light with V-Mount Battery Plate is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from NOT Indestructible, but decent. Aputure's site calls it Indestructible. But not in my experience. The light is nice. It's super sturdy and comes with a lot of great, robust features. The quality of the light is good too. BUT: I've had it for a week and somehow already managed to totally break the OLED screen on the back. So the light still comes on, but not instantly, and with no information about the temperature, batteries, or intensity. The bag it came in is really nice, but also broke the first time I used it -- the metal on the strap just popped off. It still zips, but... Lastly, the softbox is nearly worthless, as is the fairly flimsy stand clamp. I used a pocket knife to whittle the ends of the white tube arms down to a taper because they just weren't going into the softbox clamps otherwise. I opted to use an umbrella in the end because it's just easier. Pros: Good quality of light, no flicker, fairly strong intensity, great color range, comes with batteries Cons: sensitive OLED screen on the back, cheap bag, REALLY cheap softbox arms.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from poor build I bought two of these a almost a month ago. One arrived with the digital display not working, I sent it back the next day and didn't get the replacement till today, several weeks later. This time it works but the snap on the case is broken. Not a big deal, but disappointing for such an expensive unit. I will buy the extended warranty because I don't trust it. I should just return them both but don't have the time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from UPDATED REVIEW UPDATE: I emailed Aputure's support team. They had me send back the unit to their California location and upon receipt, sent me a new unit at no charge. That's really encouraging and I appreciated the customer service! Aputure's site calls it Indestructible. But not in my experience. The light is nice.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from V-mount plates not wired A bit disappointing that the v-mount plates are unwired and depend on the batteries having built in p-taps. Pretty lame omission.� The locking strap on the bag already popped off on the first use.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Color Accuracy Off by 1000k Really wanted to like these lights but they are not accurate at 5600k. In fact, they are off by about 1000k. Attached are some photos with scopes to demonstrate. I contacted Aputure and their solution was to return them and replace but after looking at some other reviews I believe the light is just off. I would not buy again and am hoping to return.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light at a great price I've always been impressed with the products from the this company and this one takes their quality up a notch. The light is bright and has a great build quality. Once you add the soft box, it's a fantastic key or fill for a small crew shoot. As mentioned in some of the reviews, this light does get hot on the back, so be aware of that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy jeebus this is bright! Do not shine this light directly on to people's eyes. I learned this the hard way.
