The Aputure MC RGBWW Led Video Light is part of the Aputure M-series of lights and features RGB LEDs, as well as both tungsten- and daylight-balanced LEDs, creating a full hue controllable LED that emits up to 95% of the BT 2020 colour gamut. This lightweight light fixture easily fits in the palm of your hand and can be mounted using the built-in 1/4"-20 threaded mounting hole or attached to metal items via its built-in magnets. The light integrates an OLED display screen and a control wheel. Compatibility with the Aputure Sidus Link app enables you to remotely control your light from your mobile device. The light fixture supports the Sidus Mesh technology that enables you to control multiple fixtures.
The fixture is dimmable from 100 to 0% brightness, has 360° of hue control, and 100 levels of colour saturation adjustment. It features a CRI rating of 96 and a TLCI rating of 97, and the MC LED light has a colour temperature range of 3200 to 6500K adjustable in 100° increments. In addition to the HSI and CCT settings, the light has nine built-in FX settings. The integrated battery will run the fixture for two hours at maximum brightness. The fixture supports USB Type-C PD (Power Delivery) quick-charging protocol for rapid charging, and it also supports the Qi wireless charging protocol, making it compatible with most wireless chargers.
MC | Any Colour. Any Time.
The MC is Aputure’s first light to include full Hue, Saturation, & Intensity (HSI) colour control. With 360° of hue and 100 levels of saturation adjustment, you have the power to conveniently reproduce any colour, all in the palm of your hand.
As part of the Aputure M-Series of mini LEDs, the 130g MC easily fits in the palm of your hand. With a footprint only slightly larger than a credit card and thickness of only 17mm (11/16 in.), the MC fits anywhere. The built-in magnets and 1-4″-20 screw mount allow you to place and use it in seconds. Use it as an on-camera light, or hide it off-screen for an app-controllable accent or fill light. With its lightweight, slim profile, you can tuck several MCs in your camera bag or pockets, so you’re always ready to go.
Stellar Colour Quality
|TLCI 96+||CRI 96+||SSI 84|
As with all Aputure lights, the MC prides itself in its colour rendition, with CRI and TLCI scores of 96+, and SSI scores of 84 in tungsten and 74 in daylight. This is all accomplished by an underlying technology that reproduces colour better and more accurately than ever before: RGBWW.
Unlike traditional RGB, the Aputure MC isn’t just a light that relies on Red, Green, and Blue LEDs. By adding two additional white LEDs — one balanced at tungsten and a second at daylight — the Aputure MC is an impossibly small light that competes with industry giants.
HSI/CCT/FX Lighting Modes
The Aputure MC allows you to be more flexible in your filmmaking, providing you with multiple lighting modes to suit your needs. In addition to HSI Colour Mode, the MC allows you to adjust your white light with CCT Mode, or use built-in lighting effects with FX Mode.
|CCT Modes||FX Modes|
|The MC is Aputure’s first mini LED that offers fine CCT control. You can accurately choose any colour temperature in the MC’s expanded bi-colour range between 3200K-6500K, in increments of 100K, allowing you to adapt to any situation.||In the MC’s FX mode, toggle between any of the MC’s nine built-in lighting effects presets to help you out in a pinch. If you need more control over your lighting effects, the Sidus Link app will allow you to adjust all of the effects’ parameters.|
Lighting effects include:
Enjoy Freedom from Cables
The MC is compatible with the Qi wireless charging protocol, enabling it to be used with the majority of the wireless chargers on the market. Simply place it on a wireless charging pad and the MC will be ready when you need it.
Sidus Link Control
As the first RGBWW light to be compatible with the Sidus Link mobile app, the true abilities of both the light and the app are finally unlocked.
The Sidus Mesh technology built into the MC, the backbone of the Sidus Link mobile app control, is perhaps the most advanced smart light technology yet. The proprietary Sidus Mesh system allows each light to communicate with each other and with the mobile app simultaneously. Each additional light increases the integrity of the network. This enables you to control lights within a 400-meter range, without the need for an external router, as long as there are lights at most 80 meters between each other.
|ULTIMATE CONTROL||COLOUR PICKER|
|With the current Sidus Mesh technology, you can control up to 100 lights in a stable network. Control a single light, or all of them simultaneously, from the Sidus Link mobile app for iOS and Android. Sidus Link allows for finer control of the light’s HSI, CCT, and FX functions by enabling additional control methods and parameters.||One of the most groundbreaking features of the Sidus Link app is the Colour Picker function. With the Colour Picker, you can simply point your phone’s camera at a colour, capture it, and your light will reproduce it instantly. What you see is what you get. Just grab the colour and start shooting!|
