The on or off-camera Amaran AL-528S Daylight LED Spot Light from Aputure is a daylight-balanced (5500K) LED light that delivers precise color accuracy thanks to its high CRI 95+ rated LEDs. The light produces a spot 25° beam angle with a brightness of 4,380 lux at a distance of 3.3' and features a stepless rear dimming dial for adjusting light output from 0 to 100%. The AL-528S can be powered by the included AC adapter or optional Sony F/FM/QM-type batteries using the dual rear battery slots. Four LED indicator lights on the back of the unit display the remaining battery life.
The 9.37 x 7.48 panel is only 1.26" thick and generates little heat, allowing it to squeeze into places where other lights, especially incandescents, just can't go. The AL-528S ships with a multi-voltage AC adapter, 5/8" tilting mount for stand mounting, a 5/8" spigot with 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads, an orange 5500 - 3200K conversion filter, a diffusion filter to soften the light's output, and a carry case with shoulder strap.
