    Aputure AL-MX reviews

    Amaran AL-MX Bicolor LED Mini Light is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed bag The general size and output of the light is ok. But there are a few really odd choices in this product. The way the diffusion attaches to the front of the light is very flimsy and constantly falls off. The diffusion also changes the color temp of the light slightly, but noticeably. It dims and changes color temperature in steps which while not Ideal is fine. The problem is the the color temp changes go 2800k, 4300k, 5000k, 5500k, and 6500k. A more logical step would be 2800k, 3200k, 4300k, 5600k, and 6500k. Therefore it would fit into preexisting color temp norms.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT LIGHT POWERFULL my first use last sat 8/4/18 on a wedding job . got thru 4 hour reception plus use a bit at bride's house at low level brightness setting. i like the output and color temp is 6500 and i got great skin tone than use 48k certain time when the reception hall brought up the lights. one neg is the white panel come off easy i did drop it rushing to get the shot but some one saw it gave it back to me, but i will try the velcro soft box that come with it that will not come off easy. there is a rubber band not sure what that for maybe to hold the white panel. overall i love this light quality build .

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worthy successor the the Aputure M9 This little light is CRAZY bright. Truly incredible for it's size. I just got it and did some quick tests comparing it's brightness against other lights like the m9, F7, and H198. It's output for the size is greater, but because it's so small the light falls off faster than bigger sources.� This thing is built like a tank (HEAVY) and feels super premium. I have to do some more testing, but it seems like the battery drains really fast at full output. Specs say it lasts an hour. 30-40 mins definitely, but 60 mins I'm not completely sure.� My only real complaint is that I wish the diffuser had stronger magnets. Almost any little knock sends that thing flying. And if you try to gel it like you did with the m9 it barely holds on. Other than that... It's all good. I wish the price tag was lower, but when u feel the build, and see the quality of light you will fully understand.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still putting it through it's paces So far, I am very impressed with this light.� The output, build quality, and form factor are really impressive, especially for the price.� The battery seemed to drain really fast on me, but I will put it through some more tests and update this review once I do.� For $150, you can't go wrong.
