The Aputure MC On-Camera RGB LED Light is a pocket-sized RGB-WW LED light that has a CCT range of 3200K to 6500K. The light is capable of creating 36,000 different colours.

The MC features a built-in 3.7V 2650mAh battery which can power the light at full power for up to 100 minutes. The MC is lightweight and features a durable metal frame with built-in magnets on the back that enables users to mount the light on any metal surface.

The MC can be controlled remotely by using a Bluetooth attachment called the Sidus Link Bridge. This is a new app that will soon be available for both Android or iOS. The app will allow you to control colour temperature, gel modes, colour effects, dimming, and brightness.

Firmware updates can be found at Updates can be installed via the Sidus Link app.

The MC is Aputure’s first light to include full Hue, Saturation, & Intensity (HSI) color control. With 360° of hue and 100 levels of saturation adjustment, you have the power to conveniently reproduce any color, all in the palm of your hand.

As with all Aputure lights, the MC prides itself in its color rendition, with CRI and TLCI scores of 96+, and SSI scores of 84 in tungsten and 74 in daylight. This is all accomplished by an underlying technology that reproduces color better and more accurately than ever before: RGBWW. Unlike traditional RGB, the Aputure MC isn’t just a light that relies on Red, Green, and Blue LEDs. By adding two additional white LEDs — one balanced at tungsten and a second at daylight — the Aputure MC is an impossibly small light that competes with industry giants.

The Aputure MC allows you to be more flexible in your filmmaking, providing you with multiple lighting modes to suit your needs. In addition to HSI Color Mode, the MC allows you to adjust your white light with CCT Mode, or use built-in lighting effects with FX Mode.

The MC is Aputure’s first mini LED that offers fine CCT control. You can accurately choose any color temperature in the MC’s expanded bi-color range between 3200K-6500K, in increments of 100K, allowing you to adapt to any situation.

In the MC’s FX mode, toggle between any of the MC’s nine built-in lighting effects presets to help you out in a pinch. If you need more control over your lighting effects, the Sidus Link app will allow you to adjust all of the effects’ parameters. Lighting effects include: Paparazzi, Fireworks, Faulty bulb, Lightning, TV, Pulsing, Fire, Party, Cop Car.


As part of our M-Series of mini LEDs, the 130g MC easily fits in the palm of your hand. With a footprint only slightly larger than a credit card and thickness of only 17mm (11/16 in.), the MC fits anywhere. The built-in magnets and 1-4″-20 screw mount allow you to place and use it in seconds. Use it as an on-camera light, or hide it off-screen for an app-controllable accent or fill light. With its lightweight, slim profile, you can tuck several MCs in your camera bag or pockets, so you’re always ready to go.

As the first RGBWW light to be compatible with the Sidus Link mobile app, the true abilities of both the light and the app are finally unlocked.

The Sidus Mesh™ technology built into the MC, the backbone of the Sidus Link™ mobile app control, is perhaps the most advanced smart light technology yet. The proprietary Sidus Mesh™ system allows each light to communicate with each other and with the mobile app simultaneously. Each additional light increases the integrity of the network. This enables you to control lights within a 400-meter range, without the need for an external router, as long as there are lights at most 80 meters between each other.

COLOR PICKER One of the most groundbreaking features of the Sidus Link app is the Color Picker function. With the Color Picker, you can simply point your phone’s camera at a color, capture it, and your light will reproduce it instantly. What you see is what you get. Just grab the color and start shooting!

The MC is compatible with the Qi wireless charging protocol, enabling it to be used with the majority of the wireless chargers on the market. Simply place it on a wireless charging pad and the MC will be ready when you need it.

The MC is also available in a 4-Light Travel Kit and 12-Light Production Kit. Each of these kits comes with a custom hardshell wireless charging case to protect and conveniently charge your MCs wherever you go. Make your workflow as efficient as possible. The 4-Light Travel Kit was designed for guerilla and travel filmmakers, so you can slip the case into your camera bag or backpack while you’re on the move. The 12-Light Production Kit was made for owner-operators and rental houses, including not only an accessory drawer built into the case, but also enough lights to pull off the unimaginable. Just plug in a D-Tap or power cable, and you’re ready to go.

The MC is a light that is designed to be ready for any situation, whenever you need it. Offering multiple convenient power options, control methods, and mounting solutions, this fixture is truly the swiss army knife of light.

    Light looks good and was looking forward to using the app to control the light but after a couple of days of trying to connect to my phone ( S9 ) I've come to the conclusion that it will not because the app isn't compatible with the latest security update from samsung.

    Easy to control from the Sidus Link app. Good for ambient lighting and also handy for extra light in a workshop. The supplied USB-C charging cable is a bit short, but longer ones are easy to find.
