    Aputure Mini 20 reviews

    LS-mini20 Daylight/Bi-Color 3-Light Flight Kit is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from A bunch of manageable quirks but the fan ruins it :( I feel sad reviewing this. I love Aputure, all my other lights are from Aputure and I LOVE them. This is the first product I had to return. There are a few quirks about these lights: 1) The kit comes with two daylight and one bi-color. For whatever reason, the daylight models are set at 7500 kelvin whereas the bi-color maxes out at 5600k. So if you end up using all three at once, you've to use the included CTO to bring it down from 7500k to 5600k to match them all. Its an extra step, but I could live with it. 2) No remote functionality. One of the reasons I'm loyal to Aputure is their remote functionality that works across their multiple products. I love it and use it a lot. These lights don't have that feature but once again, its something I could live with. 3) The random speed ramps of their built-in fan. This was the dealbreaker and the main reason I returned it. The fan just kicks in and ramps up when it needs to cool down and you have ZERO control over this. Many takes during filming was unusable because it would ruin the audio. Plus its loud.....louder than the 300d and thats saying something. Atleast the 300d has a constant fan speed so it was easy to work around in post. But if the fan speed ramps up and down, its a nightmare to clean in post. Its a shame. I was really looking forward to these lights. Hopefully they fix these issues as I liked them otherwise. It came with literally everything you'd need and in nice carrying cases. If you aren't recording sound when using these lights, then you should be fine if you can live with the quirks.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a jack of all trades and master of non I don't like it. Just blue light Sam I am. I am being very critical here but I think deservedly so. The lights are marketed as a 3 light kit. Why? Well a three light kit like this would be attractive to new videographers on a budget.... BUT they had better be aware. The 2 daylight (in the shade) lights (why would you do that 7000+ k - perhaps to exaggerate the lights output?) unless used for blue accents on an incandescent set (then there would be better lights to use) you will need to gel the light even even in daylight and the bi color light has a uselessly low output at 3200 k, not worth the space in your lighting case or the money. AND the fan noise is prohibitively loud if used in proximity to a microphone. If you are buying your first lights, don't look here. As a low budget specific creative tool maybe, but just the blue lights. OK, the light has potential, just don't experiment on the unwary please!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not perfect, but really stinkin good These lights are awesome... unfortunately they have a few caveats that may or may not be an issue depending on your use case. Main one; the bloody fans. They aren't as loud as they are annoying and unpredictable. They may become an issue in certain situations depending on how you're running audio. Other than that, build quality is fine, love the strong lightweight plastics, no real flex or concerns on that front. The light output is fantastic. The powering options are fantastic. The price for the amount of gear/accessories/etc. is great. The color temp may be an issue, the gel cards work great and they're easy to pair with other leds like the 120D. This is in hope that these 7000k to 5600k sheets become readily available, because sooner or later you'll need to replace em.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lights, power options galore!! Powerful, daylight fresnels that can go anywhere with you. Comes with 3 Sony 970 style batteries that power each light for up to 2.5 hours (personally tested). Bicolor fresnel is about a 3rd the brightness of the others ... but it's a bicolor fresnel!! Can't say enough good things about aputure's lighting game as of late. Mounting threads are a little tricky, not heavy duty, but get the job done. Looking forward to more awesome tech from this company.
