Aputure keeps cranking out high quality, reasonably priced lighting gear. In this announcement, Ted from Aputure runs us through the features on their new Mini 20C. The light features a focusing beam, including barn doors with an infinity ring, controls for dimming, changing color temperature between 3200 and 5600 Kelvin, and focusing the beam angle between 20 and 80 degrees (flood and spot). One other nice feature is the ability to power with 5 to 18V DC power so you can use a USB battery pack, Sony NP-F style batteries, or even a big Sony V-Lock or Anton Bauer Gold Mount battery.
I've been working with an early copy of the daylight version of this light for a few weeks now and it works great as an accent or hair light.
Apologies for the wild camera work. I had the clever idea to go super light without a tripod at NAB this year. Lesson learned. My brother Cary Judd was kind enough to suffer through shooting. Thanks bro!
