The Aputure AL-H198 is a portable LED panel light, which features 198 5500k daylight-balanced LEDs. The quality of light this panel produces is outstanding, boasting a CRI score of 95+ which means it has fantastic colour accuracy, i.e. no more horrible magenta / green / blue / cyan hues! The AL-H198C kit also comes with a high quality all metal ball-joint hotshoe / tripod mount, standard diffuser, tungsten diffuser and a protective carry bag to store it all.

This 198 LED on camera light outputs a huge amount of light, when the adjustable dimmer is set to full power, the output is a huge 920 Lux (at 1 metre). It is lightweight and compact, and fits perfectly on any camera hotshoe thanks to the all-metal hot-shoe adapter. The light can even be attached to light stands or other accessories that have a ¼" threaded screw terminal.

To add to the light's versatility, the panel can even be connected to up to 9 other aputure LED panels to combine their power output. This is possible thanks to the cold-shoe slots on each side of the panel's chassis and the supplied cold shoe extension attachment.

The unit can be steplessly dimmed with the dimming dial and the diffusing filter can be used for a more natural look with softer shadows. For shooting in tungsten light conditions a tungsten diffuser is supplied. The AL-H198 has CRI (Colour Rendering Index) score of 95+ which means it will faithfully reveal the colours of the objects it shines on which is obviously critical in video making!


The aspect ratio of the LED light is 16:9, making it suited to video of the same ratio such as DSLR video. The frameless 60° beam angle of the light provides a wide angle of illumination, to evenly cover your scene.

A handy battery status button is also featured on this unit to give a 4 level readout on remaining battery life.

The unit outputs approx. 20w of light when fully on. Due to the efficiency of LED lighting, this is equivalent to around 200w of tungsten light. This output is a hugely bright output for such a small battery powered device.

There is a choice of 2 options when it comes to powering the device. Firstly, 6xAA batteries (either standard 1.5v or 1.2v NiMH rechargeable). Secondly a Sony NP-F750 or equivalent battery can be mounted to the integrated battery plate adapter located on the rear of the light.

We also stock this NP-F750 battery, which fits many other pieces photographic equipment such as monitors and other lights.
