Aputure MC Reviews

Great addition to your lighting kit

By Neale
Rated 5 out of 5

Borrowed a set of these for a recording session with Fox Run Five and after one day ordered 4 more which came overnight. The Sidus link app is a pleasure to work with. Slapped them on mic stands and background lighting. Decent battery life and you can plug them into any USB charger if there's an outlet handy. The diffusers are useful if you want to get a softer look. I have a pair of Amaran 200x as my main lights I wish they had included 4 of them in the kit. I ordered two more, but it's kinda lame not to just give you 4 at this price.

This is my goto portable lights. Only had them for a few weeks and they have already proven to be invaluable. I use them in combination with a couple of 8 lite panels for softening up portraits and used as a on Camera continuous light on my Sony A7 lV.

Bought 2 of these to light up the inside of an old building as the foreground for some Milky Way shots. Worked perfectly. It took a few minutes before our shoot to figure out the app to adjust colors and intensity, but once you get it, it's a piece of cake.

Phenomenal product

I used them on a shoot and they came in handy in so many ways, the life per charge was great a good 4hrs on 100% brightness. Definitely a fun toy to have very versatile the magnetic backs are a huge help, very strong connection and wireless charging makes these a must have.

Nice little light

Works as promised and it's easy and fun to use. Use a few of these for accent lights on your film set, for example to illuminate the background. Good build quality and nice and bright for its size.

Love it overall!

These are bright enough for small product photography/video and of course indoor environmental accent lighting. The LCD indicator is a nice touch- show the remaining battery power left. For the price point, it should have come with 1 white silicon diffuser per light, instead of just 2 to split between the 4 lights. I was a bit disappointed in this regard, since they are so cheap to produce. Also, would have been thoughtful to include some numeric stickers or something to keep track of which light is which while using the app. That said, I am looking forward to using these often!
