The AL-M9 Amaran Pocket-Sized Daylight-Balanced LED Light from Aputure is an extremely portable yet surprisingly bright battery-powered LED fixture. Easily fitting in your pocket, the fixture is daylight balanced and sports a colour temperature of 5500K with a CRI and TLCI rating of over 95. It includes a removable sheet of diffusion and 9 steps of dimming.
The Amaran integrates an 1800mAh lithium polymer battery with a nearly 2-hour runtime at full brightness when fully charged. You can charge the fixture using the included USB charging cable and a readily available USB charger (not included). Included with the fixture are magnetically attached diffusion, CTO, and CTB filters. The light slips into an adapter, so you can mount it to the cold shoe or threaded female 1/4"-20 accessory port of your camera.
A Tiny Design with Huge Ambitions The Amaran AL-M9 takes its surprisingly tiny and innovative design to a level of versatility not seen in another LED light. It has a credit card size, weighing only 140g which is quite comfortable to fit in your hand and just throw it into your pocket until you need it. With a smooth surfaced back, you can use all sorts of adhesives to mount this light on or under nearly any surface!
High Colour Restoration The Amaran AL-M9 inherits the belief of true colour pursuit of the Amaran Series. It features an exceptionally high colour accuracy rating in both CRI and TLCI of 95+, which means it will display natural, pristine colour in both photo and video applications.
CTO and CTB Surprisingly, the AL-M9 offers gel filters, allowing for both tungsten (CTO 3400K) and CTB (8800K), controlling the colour or characteristics of the light.
Fill Light for Narrow Places The Amaran AL-M9 size and output can be the difference in making a shot happen in tough, small shooting environments. For example, you could use Velcro to attach the AL-M9 to the visor or ceiling inside a car and create a unique and effectively lit scene great for both interior and exterior shots.
9 Steps Dimming The Amaran AL-M9 has a dimmer with 9 levels of power that allows you to adjust brightness more conveniently. With the diffuser attached, it's possible to soften the subject lighting and decrease the shadows conveniently.
Internal Battery with Micro-USB Charging The AL-M9 offers an internal lithium-ion battery that can be recharged using the 5 volts Micro-USB cable (included). It can last up to 1.5 hours at 100% and 13 hours at minimum brightness.
Universal Adapter Amaran AL-M9 lighting up includes universal adapter that offers you the ability to mount it on the hot-shoe of a camera, tripod, light stand or other supports using the 1/4 screw thread on the underside.
