About this deal

The 200 watts F22 model is basically two 100W F21 panels combined. Therefore you can expect half the output with the F21 model. A new feature that will be popping up on fixtures in the amaran product line is DMX control with a special USB-C to 5-Pin DMX512 In & Out Adapter Cable, allowing professional-level control to the flexible light product line. This USB-C DMX input is also included with the new amaran Tube Lights that were also announced. Controller Fan Noise The amaran flexible lights are well built with plenty of output for their wattage. I’m a bit surprised by the release since these styles of lights have somewhat cooled off over the years. Clearly, amaran feels there is interest in them as Aputure does listen to its customers and does a good job creating products they want. With that, the F22 fixtures are brighter than other 200W 2’x2′ models, so I see these as an advancement of the flexible panels at a lower price. Ultimate flexibility. Install the included foldable softbox, one of two strengths of diffusion, or the fabric light control grid to instantly turn this flexible mat into an ultra-thin soft light that will make any subject shine. Built-in Lighting FX: Paparazzi, Lightning, TV, Candle, Fire, Strobe, Explosion, Faulty Bulb, Pulsing

For creators looking for a compact and portable lighting solution with a seamless user experience, the F22x control box features a multi-voltage V-Mount or Gold-Mount battery plate compatible with 14.4V/26V/28.8V/48V batteries. Full output can also be achieved using the AC power supply. AJ's Studio & Camera Supplies is a trading name of sole trader Andrew Dibben who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.The amaran F22x is a 2’x2’ flexible LED mat designed for a variety of users – from filmmakers to videographers, content creators, and even photographers. As an ultra-light, ultra-thin fabric light, the F22x is compatible with a wide variety of use cases and excels in on-the-go travel and tight spaces. And as a large, soft light that can fold compactly, it is the perfect close-up key light. The control box is a multi-voltage AC power supply that also features a V-Mount battery plate for use with compatible 14.4V, 26V, or 28.8V batteries. Full output can be achieved when using the AC power supply, using batteries allows the F22x to be used at either half-power or full-power, depending on battery strength. When it comes to soft light, you want to get the diffusion farther away from the light. 4″ is not a lot. It’s nice to have a softbox included, and I appreciate the simplicity. However, I would punch it through a 4×4 or 6×6 frame to get a more pleasing look. Again. These are tools, and you have an included option that will work well in many situations.

Users who need a compact and portable design will appreciate the single multi-voltage V-Mount battery plate that allows for full output without the need for a dual plate system, and allows them to use fewer, higher voltage batteries. And when combined with the long head cable and optional lantern accessory, users can extend the fixture out as a portable & mobile follow-light. So now that we have seen the color rendering scores and the Kelvin color temperature accuracy, let’s have a look at the output.

Included Modifier

The Amaran F22x is a 2’x2’ ultra-lightweight flexible LED mat that offers outstanding light output and colour rendering for indie filmmakers, videographers, content creators, and photographers who need a versatile and flexible lighting solution. As an ultra-light, ultra-thin fabric light, the F22x is compatible with a wide variety of use cases and excels in on-the-go travel and tight spaces. And as a simple, soft light that can fold compactly, it is the perfect close-up key light. Its traditional 2’x2’ square form factor allows the F22x to provide ample surface area for an innately soft light, while still producing enough intensity to impact the scene. The control box is outfitted with a multi-voltage battery plate. You can use a 14.4V battery to achieve half power or max out the intensity with full power when using compatible 26V or 28.8V batteries. You can also achieve full output when using the AC power supply. The controller is equipped with either a V-Mount or Gold Mount plate and has the Aputure QR plate on the side. However, the clamp to mount it isn’t included in the kit.

The kits include a 4″ shallow softbox that attaches with a hook and loop fastener. It fits nicely on the panel and comes with two diffusion fabrics: a 1/2 stop grid cloth and a milky 2.5 stop magic cloth type. I love the heavier diffusion. Since the box isn’t very deep, it softens it up more, and the fixtures have plenty of output so it can handle a stronger fabric in front. Full color control. The F22c features RGBWW LEDs for complete color control, as well as tunable CCT from 2,500K to 7,500K, providing endless possibilities for creative lighting decisions through 360° HSI control, 46 color gel presets, or even up to 15 unique lighting effects. To add a beautifully controlled soft light to your scene, attach the included softbox, one of two strengths of diffusion cloths, or the included light control grid using the integrated hook-and-loop fabric to further finesse your lighting design. The F22x can also be combined with the Amaran F22 Lantern with light control skirt to extend the fixture as a volumetric lantern or pancake light.`The X-Type Frame ends inserts into reinforced corners of the panel and pulls it out a little. It holds sturdy and won’t slip off easily, making it a good option for overhead use. Some of the Velcro-style frames tend to sag a little and are much more prone to falling off the frame over time. The amaran F22x is ideal for content creators, indie filmmakers, and videographers who need a versatile and literally flexible lighting solution. The bi-color flexible panel gives users unmatched strength and control over a wide, expanded CCT range to match a variety of white light environments. We are a credit broker and not a lender. Finance is offered subject to application, financial circumstances and borrowing history. Minimum amounts and eligibility criteria applies. Bare LEDs tend to cast multiple shadows. I highly recommend using the included modifier with at least the 1/2 Grid Cloth to smooth it out. Bouncing is also an option. Competition

Bi-color flexible panel. The F22x’s high-output bi-color chipset gives you unmatched strength, and can be tuned and controlled over a wide, expanded CCT range from 2,500K to 7,500K to match a variety of white light environments. The F22x also comes equipped with 9 different Lighting FX. Aputure & amaran’s ecosystem and Sidus Link App integration also make the amaran F22x perfect for users who prefer to adjust their lights remotely so they can spend more time behind or in front of their camera. With the Source Match, and Custom FX control functions, matching or creating the perfect lighting for your scene has never been easier. Even users who need DMX control can use the F22x with the USB-C to DMX512 Adapter cable, for professional-level control. The fixture’s design and frame are well designed, I like that it doesn’t use a hook and loop for attaching to a frame. The eyelets can come in handy for mounting to a custom frame or nails to a surface. I do wish it included the controller mounting clamp as I like the feature with other Aputure lights that have controllers. I’m sure it comes down to keeping the cost lower. In addition to controlling your lighting design from Sidus Link, the F22x can be controlled externally via wired DMX with the USB-C to 5-Pin DMX512 In & Out Adapter*, adding professional-level control to your favorite flexible light mat. Attach the included softbox, one of two strengths of diffusion, and the fabric grid using the integrated hook-and-loop fabric to further finesse your lighting design and add a beautifully controlled soft light to your scene.
