Aputure Amaran COB 60X Constant Light Review

Aputure amaran cob LS 60x

Aputure Amaran COB 60X - a very compact studio fixture with constant light. Power 60W. Bayonet - Bowens Mount.

The dimensions of the Aputure COB 60X are  11cm by 11cm by 11cm. This is an unusually small device, with its dimensions reminiscent of highly specialized movie cameras-cubes like Panasonic BS1H or Z Cam.

The workmanship of the device is very high, which is usual for devices from Aputure. The case is completely metal, removable mount on the rack is also made of metal. Inside there is an active cooling system that works with a quiet hum. Pleased with a long power cable for several meters.

The kit comes with an adapter for two Sony NP-F batteries. With it, you can power the camera autonomously, without mains power.

  • In the version with "X" at the end, Aputure Amaran COB 60X color temperature can be changed in the range from 2700K to 6500K.
  • There is an Aputure Amaran COB 60D version with a constant light temperature of 5600K.

In general, the device is pleasant to hold in hands and it is pleasant to use it. The main advantages are high reliability, thoughtfulness of everything to the smallest detail and small dimensions.
