In this video, I do a review of the newest addition to my lighting kit: the Aputure Amaran AL-528S LED video light. Being the spotlight version, it offers quite a large amount of light which could be very useful for both photography and videography.
It can be powered through an AC power supply, or using two Sony batteries, and if you plug it in while you have the batteries inside, it also acts as a battery charger.
It also comes with a diffuser panel which does a pretty good job, and an orange gel to match tungsten lighting.
The umbrella adapter that comes with it is very practical, allowing you to pivot the video light, and attach an umbrella if you have one.
In this video, I do a demo of the Aputure Amaran AL-528S LED video light. This video is lit up completey by 1 AL-528S located about 1m (3 feet) away from me, with no modifiers except for the diffuser panel that comes with it. It allowed me to film at 1/60sec f/4.5 ISO 100, which is quite nice, and I like the way the colours are rendered with it.
