Aputure Amaran Halo LED

“The Aputure ring fl ash uses an array of high-power LEDs rather than conventional fl ash tubes.

This enables a fairly powerful output in fl ash mode, and continuous lighting at reduced power, making it suitable for shooting macro video clips.

There is AF assist lighting in fl ash mode but no TTL flash metering. Instead, power is manually adjustable between full, half and quarter power output settings.

You can also switch the output to just the left or right side. Eight mounting rings enable fitment to popular filter thread sizes between 49mm and 77mm.

PROS… Delivers constant lighting for macro video, as well as flash.

CONS… No TTL fl ash metering for auto power adjustments.

WE SAY… A lightweight, compact and inexpensive system”

“This kit uses a circular array of high-power LEDs, which enables a powerful output in flash mode with the bonus of continuous lighting at

reduced power. Dedication includes AF assist lighting in flash mode, but there’s no TTL flash metering.

Words from a "Pro"

Aperture Amaran Halo AHL-C60 LED Flash - User Review:

"The incredibly compact Aperture Halo LED ringflash/light arrived usefully boxed with no fewer than eight step-up ring adapters. This unit is fantastically well designed and easy to use, whether you attach it to the lens for classic ring flash effect, or hand held off camera, or even mounted to the hot shoe of your camera. A clever twin button combination releases the flash from the step up ring, enabling quick changes while you work. The neatest thing is that this LED light can work either in three flash modes, a continuous light mode, or by half pressing the shutter, as an AF assist lamp. The adjustability of the brightness is simple and the power output is amazing, given that the Halo runs on just four AA batteries and battery life is extended immeasurably by the low power consumption of LED technology. Now I realise that most compact ring flashes are intended primarily for macro photography applications. The Halo however demonstrates its versatility way beyond this. My choice of application on this test shoot was to photograph one model in two totally different styled shoots in the same afternoon, one a moody fashion location shoot and the other a racy glamour set in a fairly dark indoor setting. I've attached, as examples, some of the results. The outdoor shoot utilised the Halo as a fill flash, with strong sunlight behind the model, whereas the glamour set saw the Halo in use as the sole light source, and perhaps the most definitive and stylish approach to model lighting I've found for some time. The model absolutely loved the high key effect, obtained about three to four feet from the light and camera. The ring flash itself can be incorporated into the edges of your image as a circular.. halo. I really like the effect of this and while you can just zoom in a bit and not have the white vignette effect, I found it added something special to the shots. I can see the Halo will become a staple of many of my upcoming shoots. Small enough to carry in your coat pocket, yet sufficient for a variety of uses as the sole lighting solution, it's a refreshingly affordable, must have item!"

Higher CRI Values, More Natural Color Rendering

The color-rendering index (CRI) is a quantitative measure of the ability of a light source to reproduce the colors of various objects faithfully in comparison with an ideal or natural light source. Light sources with a high CRI are desirable in color-critical applications such as photography and cinematography.

The Amaran Halo H100 uses cutting-edge color-rendering technology in CRI 95+ bulbs to produce accurate colors.
