Pocket Beast - My new favourite light
lighthousephoto.ie, 24.06.2021
As I already owned both the Aputure MC and AL-F7, I was hoping the MX would offer some of the convenience of the MC, with output closer to the AL-F7, and that's essentially what I got.

Where it surpasses the aforementioned lights, and most of the competition, is with it's superb build quality. This product is made from metal, and I expect it to last a very long time.

This is my second light with USB charging and a built in battery, and I expect this type of light to replace all of my lights over time. I love the convenience of USB charging, and I don't miss those bulky Sony batteries from other lights.

I would recommend this light to anyone doing any sort of video work. It's extremely versatile and packs a bigger punch than it's small footprint would suggest. If you need more light, buy two, or supplement it with an Aputure MC daisy-chained via the convenient 1/4" thread on the side.

USB-C and modular lighting is the future.

hervorragende Ausleuchtung für Film- und Fotoaufnahmen
klangeskort, 11.11.2020
Ich bin sehr mit dem Kopflicht zufrieden: hohe Lichtausbeute, tolle Farbtemparatur (gerade das Gelblicht steht der natürlichen Sonnenausleuchte in nichts nach ;) man hat wirklich kaum Schlagschatten und eine natürliche, angenehme Gesichtsfarbe)
Super das hier nachgedacht wurde und mit entsprechenden Gewinden die Lampen easy auf übliche Mikrofonständer passen!
Die Diffusorplatten sind dank der Magneten schnell aufgesetzt oder abgenommen, man sollte sie bloß gut vor dem Zerkratzen schützen (dank der mitgelieferten Tasche kein Problem, es passen sogar zwei Al-MX rein).
Zwei Mankos:
-mir wäre lieber ein etwas länger haltender Akku lieber als vllt das geringe Gewicht (bei voller Ausleuchtung 30min, ich empfehle eine Powerbank mitzunehmen), ich hoffe der Akku ist langlebig genug, immerhin ist er recht schnell aufgeladen
-der Booster nützt beim Filmen nichts, beim Fotografieren eher so semi, da die Dauer sehr kurz ist und ich für Fotos an sehr dunklen Orten mit dem Licht eher schon eine längere Boost-Beleuchtung bräuchte

Super kompakt und praktisch
Kaenguru_Moe, 24.09.2020
Diese kleine LED Leuchte ist hervorragend verarbeitet und bietet für ihre Größe enorm viel Licht. Das beiliegende Zubehör samt Tasche bildet ein super Gesamtpaket. Der einzige kleine Wermutstropfen ist, dass sich die Farbtemperatur nur in relativ großen Schritten verstellen lässt.
