Designed for filmmakers and creators in need of advanced control, the MC Pro 8 Light Kit from Aputure offers expanded connectivity options, an IP65 rating, and RGBWW capability, while providing eight lights in a sturdy charging case to cover your entire scene. The kit is packed with a vast number of mounting accessories and magnetic modifiers for more possibilities to adapt and rig an array of MC Pros. This Pro version utilizes a similar compact, pocket-sized form factor to the brand’s original MC fixture while bringing professional functionalities. With an upgraded optical design and LED chipset, the MC Pro has an impressive color temperature range from 2000 to 10,000K and a tighter beam spread of 45° for increased intensity. Each multifunction light allows you to add color to your productions and can be used for in-camera practical effects or as a portable fill or accent light. You can control it onboard with a TFT color display, remotely using the Sidus Link app, or via advanced wired and wireless methods, including DMX/RDM and LumenRadio CRMX.
With a rugged construction and a practical design, each 4.2 x 2.7″ fixture is rated IP65 for weather resistance, so you can safely use it outdoors or in wet weather. The MC Pro’s USB-rechargeable battery lasts up to two hours at maximum output and quickly recharges in 90 minutes via its USB-C port. With a drop-in design, the supplied charging case holds the eight MC Pro fixtures and can be used to charge the lights using the included AC power or D-Tap cables. These 5W mini panels can be placed and operated virtually anywhere or hidden in small spaces. They attach to various metal objects via their built-in magnets. Additionally, each light has a 1/4″-20 thread that allows you to utilize other mounting gear, such as the four included cold shoe ball heads, to mount the light directly on your camera, cage, or other rigs. The 17 x 15″ hard-shell case can conveniently store, charge, and transport your entire light kit.
