The Aputure MC Pro 8-Light Kit is a lighting kit designed for professionals and rental houses that stores & charges 8 5W RGBWW lensed mini LED panel lights and features LumenRadio CRMX & a durable IP65 construction. Based on the original Aputure MC, the MC Pro utilizes a similar compact, credit card-sized form factor while packing in a comprehensive suite of professional functionalities. With various magnetic mounting solutions & accessories and wireless control methods (Sidus Link & CRMX), the MC Pro shines as a fixture that can be placed and operated virtually anywhere.
The 8-Light Kit expands the flexibility of the multifunctional MC Pro with not only 8 times the number of fixtures, but additional sets of magnetized modifiers, mounting accessories, including 1/4-20in Articulating Arm to Clamp Adapters and 1/4-20in Screw to Baby Pin Adapters. Featuring a drop-in design, the 8-Light Kit charges using the contact pins on the MC Pros for a seamless charging workflow and affords users the ability to quickly substitute MC Pros in a scene to minimize lighting down time or even use all 8 lights at once.
Featuring an upgraded optical design and LED chipset, the MC Pro can output 1,585 lux at 0.5m at 6500K. This is achieved by narrowing the beam angle to 45 degree for increased intensity and a further throw, which can then be controlled or diffused using the included magnetic accessories such as a 30 degree Light Control Grid or diffusers.
The upgraded LED design not only results in increased output power but also expanded color controls and CCT range, from 2,000K to 10,000K with green-magenta adjustment. The chipset can reproduce >90% of all colors within the Rec. 2020 color space and produces faithful skin tones with a CRI/TLCI score of 96, SSI (D56) of 72, and SSI (Tungsten) of 82, consistent with Aputure’s high color accuracy standards across all product lines.
For full creative freedom, filmmakers can fine-tune the MC Pro’s color using advanced HSI with white-point adjustability, RGB, GEL, or xy controls. In addition to having 15 built-in System FX, the MC Pro is equipped with other advanced features unique to the Aputure and amaran ecosystems, including Sidus Pro FX, such as Picker FX and Music FX, which can be saved using the Sidus Link app for easy access to different lighting modes.
Whether choosing to control the MC Pro using its new TFT color display or any of its professional remote options such as LumenRadio CRMX, wired DMX/RDM1, or Sidus Link, operating this light feels seamless in even the most demanding conditions. As a mini LED, the MC Pro’s rugged IP65 build maintains a lightweight frame (247g /0.54lbs) with a built-in rechargeable 15.5Wh battery that can operate at max output for 120 minutes. Its lightweight body can be mounted anywhere for quick lighting solutions with its rear-mounted magnets or any of the MC Pro 8-Light Kit’s included mounting accessories.
