I believe the rubber bands you are referring to have the Auputure written on them. They are just included as an extra, it is just a Tchotchke.

Is this an adequate replacement for the torchled?

Is this an adequate replacement for the torchled?
Asked by: Mitchell
Yes, the Aputure AL-MX has a slimmer body, internal rechargeable battery via USB-C, and ridiculously bright with great battery life (probably 8 hours worth of heavy use in between charges). I often film live performing acts, and this is mounted on my SmallRig GH5, and I typically have to turn down the brightness a little bit.
