The Aputure Amaran AL-M9 is a seriously small battery-powered LED light that fits in your pocket. A single full charge can provide over an hour of runtime at full brightness. This little daylight balanced light comes with a magnetic diffuser, two different gel filters, and a universal shoe adapter making it easy to use and incredibly portable, fitting virtually anywhere.  

5500K Daylight Balanced Colour Temperature 

The Amaran’s nine high efficiency LEDs offer a CRI and TLCI accuracy rating of 95+. The daylight balanced light has a 5500K colour temperature that accurately reproduces natural colours. This is ideal for product photography and close-up work where a small light source is required.

Dimmable LED with Diffuser

With an impressive 900lux maximum output, the Amaran M9 is dimmable in 9 smooth steps allowing you to adjust its brightness according to your preference and lighting needs. The removable diffuser is magnetic, snapping on instantly to provide a nice, even softening effect for your photos.  

Gel Filters Included

Two gel filters are included with the light and can be held in place by the magnetic diffuser. A CTO filter lowers the colour temperature to about 3400K, while the CTB filter raises the temperature to about 8800K. This allows you to quickly customise the look and feel of your lighting effects.

Pocket Sized LED Video Light

Weighing in at just 140g, the Amaran AL-M9 is extremely portable, roughly the size of a credit card, and can easily be carried in pocket or a bag, taking up hardly any space. The flat back is the perfect surface for adhesives, like tape or Velcro, so you can attach the light almost anywhere. 

Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery

The Aputure Amaran M9 is powered by a built-in 1800mAh lithium polymer battery that can be charged via a micro USB cable.  A single full charge provides up to 1.75 hours at maximum brightness and an amazing 13 hours on its lowest setting.

Universal Mount Adapter

A convenient universal mount adapter is included with the Amaran M9 allowing you to mount the light on camera and accessory shoe mounts. Remove the adapter’s cold shoe foot and the light can also be mounted on tripods or lights stands using the 1/4 inch thread.
