Each new Aputure model surprises directors of photography with the quality and capacity of their products, especially LED lights.

The AL-MW is the brightest, most rugged mini LED that Aputure has ever made. Featuring a massive 6000 lux output (2x brighter than the MX), 5 built-in light FX, a 24hrs non-stop battery life and compact metal housing with the ability to go 10 meters underwater – the MW is the most powerful pocket-sized light for no matter where life takes you.

Aputure Amaran AL-MW  Key Features

LED technological capabilities have never been so advanced. The AL-MW is the first pocket-sized LED that uses the same COB technology which powers the Aputure 300d! This allows the MW to not only remain extremely compact, but pack twice the punch of the MX.

The AL-MW follows Aputure’s long tradition of creating lights with impeccable colour fidelity, boasting an incredible CRI and TLCI rating of 95+.

The AL-MW is IP68 certified dust and waterproof for up to 10 meters. This means the MW can be not only a surf light, but a dive/scuba light as well.

With a built-in lithium-ion 3800 mAh, the MW lasts for 80 minutes of continuous use at maximum power and 24 hours at minimum. An advanced charging system via an included USB-C cable.

The AL-MW has 5 pre-programmed built-in Special Lighting Effects: Paparazzi, Lightning, TV, Fireworks, and Faulty Bulb

The MW comes with a gel holder and includes a range of CTO and CTB filters including full CTO, 1/2 CTO, 1/4 CTO, full CTB, 1/2 CTB, and 1/4 CTB. It also includes a 1.5 stop diffusing frost and a 2.5 stop silicone diffusion accessory.

The AL-MW is truly the ultimate mini lighting kit that puts creativity back into the palm of your hands. Check out our interview from IBC 2018 below.
