Aputure Store

Aputure products have quickly risen to the top of many videographer's buy lists. They have focused on just a few key products, and getting them right.

What separates Aputure from other niche manufacturers is that Aputure targets a very specific user base, and it's not the typical high-end Hollywood cinematographer. Aputure is going for the ambitious, up and coming filmmakers and videographers who want top quality gear, without spending a fortune. Turns out, that's a huge user base.

Aputure's quick rise to the top of the DSLR market was most evident this year at NAB, where they had a big booth right in the center of Central Hall. Right next to Atomos, Fujinon, ARRI, and major retailers like B&H Photo and Abelcine. Last year, Aputure was in a little corner far from the action. The year before, we don't even remember where they were.

aputure-nab

Currently, Aputure is dominating the lighting market. Their upcoming Light Storm COB-300D is widely considered the most exciting light this year. The Light Storm LS1S is maybe the most popular light of the previous two years. They have much more up their sleeve.

In addition to LED lighting, Aputure also has a few solid audio products, some modifiers for their lights, a couple field monitors, some really nice lens adapters and variable NDs, and that's it... for now. 

Because their products are so in demand, sometimes it's hard to know what's available, what's in pre-order status, and where you can buy what. So to make all that simpler, we thought we'd make a post with all of Aputure's video equipment gear that are relevant to documentary and corporate videography, in one easy to peruse article.

Please note: products in Aputure's store that say "pre-order" often mean they're back stocked momentarily but will ship immediately when they're available.

Aputure Amaran Tri-8

The newest follow-up to the very popular Amaran HR672 series, which itself was the next generation of the AL-528 series, the Tri-8 features 888 LEDs arranged in a particular pattern that avoids ​checkered shadows.

aputure tri8

The biggest upgrade of the Tri-8 over the previous Amarans is the build quality. It has a durable metal construction like the Light Storms, but with a polycarbonate face that makes the whole thing indestructible.

aputure-tri-8-back

The Tri-8 also features more durable battery connections. There's a clamp on the back for the AC adapter, and this time you can also power it via a D-tap to a V-mount or Anton Bauer battery. 

And just like the original Amarans, two Sony NP batteries can power the light as well, and Aputure even includes a pair in the package. 

The Tri-8 has built in handles to make it easier for you or an assistant to hold the light for long periods of time, or to easily set it down on a surface while it's pointed toward your subject.

That's a really nice addition, but it also might mean the Tri-8 will be more difficult to pack away into luggage or bags. Time will tell.

Aputure Light Storm COB 120

We've written about the Aputure Light Storm COB 120 extensively in this article. ​It was released only recently, and yet the demand for this light has kept it in and out of stock consistantly. 

aputure-cob-120

If you do nothing else with this light except place an umbrella through it, it becomes a very lightweight yet powerful key light alternative to panels like the Amarans and Light Storm LS1S. But with the fresnel adapter and other Bowens modifiers, you can start to shape this light in many ways.

Just like the Light Storm LS1 panels, the power and battery adapter on the COB light hangs below, where you can attach it to the bottom of the light stand (hey, free sand bag). Or you can carry it in a backpack while hand holding the light. With the built in fan, this light stays cool and quiet and yet remains as powerful as many traditional fresnel lights.

Later this year, Aputure will release the much talked about COB 300D, which will have 2.5x the power at roughly the same dimensions. That's going to be amazing. But the 300D will require two V-mount batteries to run, so it won't be as compact and portable as the 120.

Aputure Light Storm COB 120 LED Fresnel

​Aputure Light Storm LS1 LED Panel lights

​We've written a little bit about our experience with the Light Storm LS1 lights here, but we could honestly write a lot more about how much we love these. Fortunately, many others have praised these lights, so you can find many other reviews from documentary, corporate, and even narrative video shooters.

When it came out, the stand out feature of the LS1S was that it was the most bang for your buck ​in terms of light output, build quality, and design, versus its cost. Its honeycomb LED pattern packed so much more light output into a size smaller and thinner than the average 1x1 panel. Well, several years later, even with all the amazing lights coming out at a rapid pace, the LS1S is still high on the bang for your back value. 

Aputure Amaran Light Storm

We love the Light Storm LS1C because it's hugely convenient to have a super bright, bicolor key light to use on indoor interviews. But the LS1S is twice as bright at daylight, so it can be used outdoors, in addition to serving all your indoor needs, from direct keying to bouncing into a ceiling or board, or shooting through a diffusion screen.

It's hard to decide which one we like more - so we bring both to all our corporate video productions. In addition, we like to carry around a couple D-Fuse large softboxes that fit the LS1 lights perfectly. They're not much bigger than the panels itself, but they provide a lot of diffusion, so it ends up making the overall LS1 light a lot more convenient than pairing with a diffusion screen or umbrella.

As a bonus, the LS1 lights are sized pretty close to a 15" Macbook Pro, which has been a boon to us because we've got several Macbook Pro cases lying around, and it turns out the LS1 panels fit perfectly into these hardshell cases, like the Thule Gauntlet or Tom Bihn Brain Cell.

Aputure LightStorm LS1s, Ls1C, and LS1/2w LED Panels

Aputure Light Storm LS1S daylight panel led light

aputure-store-light-storm-ls1s
  • The most popular Aputure light by far, and maybe the best selling LED panel for the past two years.​
  • 1536 LEDs producing one of the brightest LED panels for the size, weight, and price.
  • 10,500 lux at 1 meter makes it useful for both outdoor interviews, as well as indoors through a variety of diffusers or as a bounce light.
  • AC/battery and dimmer can conveniently be placed at the bottom of the light stand, replacing the need for sand bags.

Aputure Light Storm LS1C​ bicolor panel led light

aputure-store-lightstorm-ls1c
  • Same design as the LS1S, but is color adjustable from 3200K to 5500K.
  • Beam angle is 45 degrees, compared to the LS1S which is 25 degrees, so it's more ready to use as a standalone panel without diffusion.
  • As an indoor interview key light with a diffuser, this may be the last LED panel you'll need for a long time.
  • Can be battery powered by V-mount, Anton Bauer, as well as the Sony NP to V-mount battery adapters, which makes portability simple and affordable.

Aputure Light Storm LS1/2W daylight panel led light

aputure-store-lightstorm-ls-1-2
  • Daylight balanced and with a CRI of 98.
  • Features a 120 degree wide beam angle, intended to be used as a fill for wall bounce, green screens, backdrops, or anywhere you need a lot of light spread.
  • Durable construction and features the same controller box as the other Light Storms.

Aputure Light Storm ls 1 studio

aputure ls1 studio
  • Available in either the LS1S daylight or LS1C bicolor models.

  • Padded sleeves and dividers are nice for organization.
  • Features water-resistant PVC construction and rubber corners for durability.

Aputure Amaran HR 672 and AL 528 Portable led Panel Lights

We've essentially bought into the whole Aputure product lineup because of the experience we've had with the Amarans. ​We've used them extensively for nearly two years, and they've paid for themselves countless times over.

These lights are the smallest, lightest, and most affordable panel lights out there today, even after they were released a few years ago. They come with us to every shoot, whether we intend to use them or not. They're the size of a regular iPad, and weigh nearly nothing, thanks to their plastic housing. But their output and battery power with a couple Sony NP style batteries make them indispensable for any videographer today.

Aputure Amaran

Compared to the Light Storm lights and the new Amaran Tri-8 indestructible panels, these Amarans are, well, destructible. They are not built to be robust, and with our heavy use their 1/4-20 threads and battery inputs start to break down. But that's after using them ​literally hundreds of times, for thousands of hours. For the price, we believe they pack a lot of value, and we're okay with replacing them every couple years if need by (we still haven't had to with ours).

​The difficult decision when buying these lights is whether you want to save a little money and get the older AL-528 Amaran lights, and then which of the models you think you'll need: the spot, wide, or bicolor version. Luckily, Aputure sells these in kits, which makes those decisions a little easier. If you want to see our breakdown of which lights we recommend for what purpose, check out our article here.

Aputure Deity Shotgun Microphone and Lavalier Audio Products

Although they pretty much have the lighting market on lock down, Aputure is quickly rising to meet videographers' audio needs as well. 

The Aputure Deity has been called many things - a Sennheiser MKH 416 clone for 1/3rd the cost, a copy of the Schoeps CMIT-5U shotgun, a perfect outdoor super directional microphone, a really great indoor loosely directional condenser...

aputure-deity

Everyone hears and tests mics differently, so it's a matter of taste and subjectivity, but the frequency response chart doesn't lie. In essence, the Deity significantly outperforms anything else in its price range, and in fact it competes with shotgun microphones 3-6x its cost. That's an amazing feat, and Aputure should be proud for achieving this with their very first professional shotgun microphone.

Aputure also a handful of lavaliere microphones that offer an excellent value for their low cost. If you're interested in pairing a lav mic with a smartphone (instead of a traditional audio recorder), the Aputure lavs are a perfect match.

It's clear that Aputure is only at the start of their journey into professional audio gear, so this will be an exciting product line to watch. If their lights are any indicator, we can see a huge amount of videographers and filmmakers buying up Aputure audio gear in the next couple years.

Aputure camera Field Monitors

​External monitors have a place in pretty much every documentary or corporate or narrative video project. Most often, you'll see filmmakers use SmallHD or Atomos monitors on their DSLR, cinema, or mirrorless cameras, but they can cost upwards of $2500. That can be hard to justify if your camera costs less than half that.

aputure vs5 external monitor

So Aputure has filled the gap in the camera monitor market with their 7-inch VS5, VS2, and VS1 field monitors. They offer similar specs such as brightness, resolution, and exposure assist features as their more spendy counterparts, but at a fraction of the price.

That's why you'll see Aputure monitors on tons of social media posts, from people using the monitors on gimbal rigs, to RED shooters rigging Aputure monitors on their cameras. The VS-5, in particular, features SDI inputs which make it suitable for many professional videographers.

In the future, we'd like to see Aputure come out with an outdoor, daylight viewable monitor​, maybe even a 5-inch version like the SmallHD Focus (which we do a review of here). Time will tell what Aputure has in store for the external camera monitor world - maybe they'll flip the table entirely and introduce something completely different?

Aputure external 7 inch field monitors

Aputure DEC vari-nd and Lens Adapters

​Last but certainly not least is Aputure's DEC lens adapters. Honestly, this is probably the most innovative part of Aputure's entire line of gear. They've solved one of the biggest issues plaguing DSLR and mirrorless cameras: the lack of internal ND filters.

Having to screw on external ND filters anytime you go outside, or change lenses, or even increase your light intensity is a  huge pain, and it's a big reason why we've moved away from DSLRs and into the Canon Cinema world. However, there's still something very attractive about using small cameras, and the Aputure DEC Vari-ND makes that an entirely different proposition. 

aputure dec vari nd

The Vari-ND goes in between your camera body and lens, so it stays on no matter what lens you choose to use. The ND is actually an electronic liquid crystal variable filter, offering a whopping 9 stops of neutral density. Aputure could have stopped there and we'd all be happy.

But the DEC Vari-ND also offers wireless control of your camera's aperture, focus​, ND, and start-stop record inputs. You can mount the handle via rosette to your gimbal, tripod, or on a director's or producer's monitor. It's a unique product that no other company has come close to offering, and it's why the DEC Vari-ND sold out within minutes of its official release.

The DEC Vari-ND comes in both a Canon ​EF/EF-S to Sony E-mount version, or a Canon EF/EF-S to Micro Four Thirds mount. So you can use your Canon glass on Sony and Panasonic (and other MFT mount) cameras. 

Among their other lens adapters, Aputure also offers wirelessly controlled lens adapters without the ND filter, and they also have a lens adapter that reduces field of view and increases maximum aperture of your Canon lenses, similar to the Metabones Speed Boosters.
