Photographers, vloggers, filmmakers, and multimedia artists, from beginner to advanced, enjoy the convenience and selection of our cameras, lenses, lighting, and production equipment with low (or no) deposits for most rentals. The best part is you have access to the newest Aputure equipment when you need it and not just when you've saved enough to buy it.
Reserve the Aputure kit you need for events, gigs, personal projects, and more and have it shipped directly to you! Just use the prepaid return label after you're done.
Aputure makes LED lighting for filmmakers, photographers, and performances. Here are the main types of lights you'll find:
These point-source LEDs offer a pack-n-head design with a Bowens mount and ability to accept V-mount batteries. They are often large and heavy but are also very powerful. Many offer full RGBWW control but some are bi-color only.
Aputure lights in the Amaran family are either fabric lights (flexible), tube lights, or lensed LED panels. The tube lights are becoming a very popular form factor!
This is a versatile category that includes RGBWW light bulbs, production kits with charging cases full of palm-sized panels, and portable versions of the Amaran tube lights.
Aputure lights offer a unique set of benefits that have helped position the brand as one of the top choices for filmmakers and photographers alike:
- LumenRadio CRMX, DMX, and Sidus Link app connectivity.
- Advanced color options using built-in gels and FX.
- Ultra-wide CCT ranges with high CRI and TLCI ratings.
Here are a few of our favorite Aputure lights:
Light Storm C300d II
This strong LED features 8 built-in lighting special effects, stepless dimming, and maintains high CRI and color fidelity. It comes with a newly-designed 55° reflector to increase output by more than 3x.
MC 4 Light Travel Kit
360° hue adjustment, 100 levels of saturation, 9 special effects, and full CCT control – all inside each of these 4 palm-sized LEDs. This is a great kit for any set, show, or event.
Accent B7c 8 Light Kit
Get 8 smart bulb LEDs, each equipped with a built-battery, on-board controls, and standard E26/E27 mounting so that you can connect to any standard lamp socket!
Amaran T2c 2' RGBWW Tube Light
Aputure's innovative take on the tube light form factor that includes 46 color gel presets and 15 adjustable built-in lighting FX.
Lighting isn't the only thing to consider – you will want to shape and support your lighting! We have you covered there, too. Here are some top Aputure modifiers:
Aputure Lantern Softbox
One of the most beautifully-shaped modifiers in the industry, the Lantern produces the most even, omnidirectional light thanks to its 270° beam angle.
Aputure Light Dome 150
Massive and nearly perfectly round, this softbox gives you reliably beautiful wrap-around softness. At 5', it's ideal for groups.
Aputure LS Reflector Kit
Bowens S mount hyper reflectors in 3 sizes designed for large-output chipset continuous lights like what you find in the Light Storm family. Achieve increased intensity and different beam angles.
