Aptolux has launched the MP-1, a unique, modular LED light panel kit. The kit comprises of 6 modular panels and it has been specifically designed to be both a versatile and flexible lighting solution.
It is good to see a new lighting company that is thinking outside of the box and coming up with solutions for real-world problems.
Solo shooters and small teams usually have to travel and carry all of their gear by themselves. This usually results in compromises on what and how much equipment you can take. Lights are always an issue when you are traveling and working out what to take and what to leave behind. This often causes headaches and I know a lot of shooters who are constantly on the lookout for more travel-friendly lighting solutions. The Aptolux MP-1 light panel kit was designed to specifically try and elevate some of these problems.
The Aptolux MP-1 are trapeze-shaped panel lights that can be combined together in different shapes and forms according to the user’s needs. They can be used as multiple 20W light sources or combined to produce a single 120W light source.
Disassembled, they are the size of the lunchbox and easily fit into a backpack.
This flexibility allows you to combine or separate the lights and use them in any way you want.
The MP-1 panels attach and detach very quickly using a twist mechanism.
According to Aptolux, if you use all 6 MP-1 panel lights together they will produce 12,000lx at a distance of 1m.
The Aptolux MP-1 light panel lights are Kelvin color temperature adjustable from 3000-6000K, they feature full RGB tuning, and they come with 30 animated effects.
The lights can be powered via Sony NP-F batteries, D-tap, or mains. They are passively cooled so they won’t create any noise.
Yes, the modular concept isn’t new, and there have been lights in the past that you could put together to create larger arrays, but none of those solutions were catered to solo shooters.
Aptolux is a small start-up from Latvia and this is their first product.
