The MC is Aputure’s first light to include full Hue, Saturation, & Intensity (HSI) color control. With 360° of hue and 100 levels of saturation adjustment, you have the power to conveniently reproduce any color, all in the palm of your hand. As with all Aputure lights, the MC prides itself in its color 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 color better and more accurately than ever before: RGBWW.

The Aputure MC 12-Light Production Kit is designed for owner-operators and rental houses, featuring wireless charging, AC & D-Tap power, and a built-in accessory drawer. The case not only stores and protects, but also charges MCs using its integrated wireless charging pads, so you no longer need a charging cable for each MC. The MC 12-Light Kit can also be powered via high output D-Tap batteries and includes a D-Tap to D-Tap power cable, so it's always ready to charge on the go.

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. 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 Color Mode, the MC allows you to adjust your white light with CCT Mode, or use built-in lighting effects with FX Mode.

Aputure MC

The MC is Aputure’s first mini LED that offers fine CCT control. You can accurately choose any color temperature in the MC’s expanded bi-color 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: Paparazzi, Fireworks, Faulty bulb, Lightning, TV, Pulsing, Fire, Party, Cop Car.

 

As part of the 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.
