This is a practical lighting solution for content creators and videographers looking for a portable and quiet light without sacrificing image quality.

Adjustments can be made locally on the unit with an intuitive LCD screen or wirelessly from a distance of up to 262' using your smartphone and the Sidus Link app. The 60x S offers extended power options and is ready for worldwide use thanks to its included 100 to 240 VAC power supply, but it can also run on separately available NP-F or D-Tap batteries for situations when AC current is unavailable. Equipped with a full-size Bowens mount and a stand adapter with an umbrella holder, you get great compatibility with a wide array of light modifiers. A carry bag is supplied as well for storage and on-the-go productions.

Detailed Color Fidelity System
The S series has improved spectral continuity to achieve the enhanced color quality of an ultra-high SSI (Tungsten) of 90 and (D56) of 87, a 17.5% increase in SSI from its predecessor. Impressive ratings of CRI 96, TLCI 97, CQS 95, TM-30 Rf 96, and TM-30 Rg 100 are your assurance of a high degree of accuracy in color reproduction at all times. Suitable for home studios or live stream setups, the significantly improved spectral quality of the 60x S will ensure accurate skin tone reproduction for your videos.
Powerful Output with Mini Hyper Reflector
The 60x S emits up to 2427 lux at a distance of 3.3' at 5600K. When equipped with the included mini hyper reflector, the light's output climbs to an impressive 33,300 lux. A soft diffusion cover is included for use with the reflector.
Preset Effects
The light has nine special effects, including paparazzi, fireworks, lightning, faulty bulb, TV, pulse, strobe, explosion, and fire.
Compact and Versatile
The amaran 60x S is as compact as a camera yet comes with full Bowens mount versatility. You can combine it with a large selection of optional modifiers, including the Light Box 45x45, Light Dome SE, Light Dome Mini II, and Aputure Lantern.
Additional Benefits and Details
  • 0 to 100% stepless dimming
  • Ability to adjust the light in 1% increments
  • Click the control knob for intensity presets with ease
  • Integrated silent cooling system
  • V-mount quick release lock located on the side of the unit for easy operation
  • Included dual NP-F battery plate
  • D-Tap battery compatible with a separately available 5.5mm cable

What would I need to mount this light to "Oben Magnetic Mount with 1/4"-20 Mounting Screw"?
Asked by: Jason
I have a follow up question but I want to reference what I'm thinking of doing. I work on a ship and my cabin has magnetic materials on the walls and ceiling. I want to mount this light to the ceiling which means no light stands which means lighter luggage. So I want something that will back the light off the mount some, so that I might be able to add modifiers to it. Got anything like that?

Asked by: Huy
Aputure LS 60x Bi-Color LED Focusing Flood Light BH #APLS60X • MFR #APA0183A20 is a tighter spotlight while the cob amaran COB 60x S Bi-Color LED Monolight BH #AMAPA0020A20 can be a tight spot or a wide flood and can accept a wide range of bowens mount modifiers. And the Aputure LS 60x Bi-Color LED Focusing Flood Light BH #APLS60X is more compact and can accept further dedicated spot attachments to further project and modify the light.

How does the NPF-battery holder connect to the light unit? is it via a standard v-mount plate? Could I mount it somewhere else?
Asked by: Jacob
The amaran COB 60x S Bi-Color LED Monolight NPF battery plate attaches to the light via the included cord. And the v mount bracket that is on the side of the light. The cord is not very long so you really can not attach it much further away than the side of the light.
