Aputure MC Reviews

Looking forward to the MC Pro

By Ryan

These have been a staple in my kit for a little while now. I use them on practically every shoot. Output could be a little higher, but that's why I'm looking forward to picking up the MC Pro's whenever they're released. As well as Aputure's larger tube light whenever *that's* released. Heck, Aputure, take all my money.

Highly recommended RGB light.

I love the built quality feels very good in my hands, one problem with this light is that you need way more than one, like they say shut up and take my money hehe :) you'll love this light.

Great compact kit

These lights make excellent fill, accent, and even special effect lights for film. I suppose it's possible if you're close enough and cluster enough to get her it could be used as a key light, but definitely not it's intended purpose. Highly recommended for sculpting your set though.

Great little light

Makes for a great special effects light. Fits in most hands and can be hidden easily; the many color/effects options give the user limitless opportunities for creative lighting.

Amazing

I video vehicle interiors and engine bays, so these lights are perfect. I use the magnets and stick them to the roof or under the hood, and boom - light exactly where I need it. They're adjustable; two come with light modifiers to soften the output.

This case is super convenient in that you can charge the lights right in the case without having to hook them all up separately to a charger. And the lights are fantastic for what they are. Super happy.

I love this little guy!

These have come in handy several times both on my stop-motion shoots and my live-action shoots. Love the magnetism, size, weight, output, and ease of use.

A fantastically versatile light

Whether used as a practical light effect in a music video or an on-camera light at an event, this little light from Aputure can preform a lot of different jobs. While I do wish it was a bit brighter, it makes up for that in sheer versatility.
