The Amaran H198C from Aputure is an on-camera LED light that utilizes 198 LEDs with a CRI of 95+ to deliver bi-color illumination with high color accuracy. The light produces a 60° beam angle with a brightness of 420 – 435 lux at a distance of 3.3′. A step-less dimming dial is provided on the back of the unit for adjusting light output from 0 to 100%, and you can adjust the color temperature precisely by turning the kelvin wheel. The light can be powered by either six AA batteries or an optional Sony NP-F/FM/QM/FP/FH/FV type battery, with four LED indicator lights on the back of the unit displaying the remaining battery life.
To create a larger light source, up to nine H198C panels can be attached together using extension slots on all four sides of the light. The slim and frameless design of the light means that when multiple light are connected, there are no gaps or light leaks. One extension attachment piece comes included, which also serves as a 1/4″-20 adapter. Also included are a swivel shoe-mount adapter for camera-mounting and a diffusion filter.
