Introducing the Amaran F21c, a high-output, full-color flexible LED mat that offers superb performance and versatility for a variety of users — from filmmakers to videographers, content creators, and even photographers. With 100W of output power, this ultra-lightweight 2’x1' fixture is capable of outputting 3,360+ lux at 1 meter (5600K) — a top performer in its class. Install the included foldable softbox and instantly turn this flexible mat into an ultra-thin soft light that will make any subject shine with stellar CRI and TLCI scores of 95+ and 98+. And with stepless dimming from 0 to 100%, you can achieve the perfect light level every time. The F21c 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. Additionally, with the F21c’s Sidus Link app control, you can be sure to always dial in your lighting design.
Building the F21c is quick and convenient with the compact, folding X-Frame that stretches out the F21c into a rigid panel. This frame can be attached directly to a C-Stand grip head using the Straight Baby Pin adapter or onto any standard light stand with the included Right Angle Baby Pin and tilting stand mount, providing an ideal option for all types of filmmakers and creators.
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.
You can also swap out the softbox for an amaran F21 lantern modifier*, allowing you to replicate a volumetric lantern or pancake light with an ultra-light full-color fixture.
With an integrated 3-meter long head cable and the included 3-meter long extension, the F21c can reach out 6 meters away from its compact control box. Engineered from the ground up for the perfect balance of size, weight, and intensity, the F21c’s LED and heat dissipation designs result in a heavy-weight punch from a flexible feather-weight design.
Each control box is also outfitted with a multi-voltage battery plate so you can use compatible 14.4V, 26V, or 28.8V batteries. You can also achieve full output when using the AC power supply, each of which comes with a specially designed battery plate bracket for a seamless user experience. And when combined with the soft carrying case, the F21c becomes a portable light that you can take anywhere for any production.
The Sidus Link app unlocks tools unique to the Aputure and amaran ecosystems, such as Source Match, Color Picker, and Custom FX, all from your phone or tablet. And unique to the newest fixtures in the amaran product line, you can control the F21c using DMX with a special USB-C to 5-Pin DMX512 In & Out Adapter Cable, granting professional-level control to your new favorite flex light.
The amaran F21c is ideal for content creators, indie filmmakers, and videographers who need a versatile and literally flexible lighting solution. The RGBWW flexible panel gives users full control over the output and can easily add a splash of color to their scene.
The natural design of the flex light results in a medium-sized source with ample surface area for an innately soft light, while still producing enough intensity to impact the scene. Users who want a 100W chipset in a traditional 2’ x 1’ form factor but still need output need look no further than the F21c.
Users who need a compact and portable design will appreciate the single multi-voltage V or Gold- Mount battery plate that allows for full output. And when combined with the long head cable and optional lantern accessory, users can extend the fixture out as a portable & mobile follow-light.
Aputure & amaran’s ecosystem and Sidus Link App integration also make the amaran F21c 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, Color Picker, and Gel control functions, choosing the perfect color for the scene has never been easier. Even users who need DMX control can use the F21c with the USB-C to DMX512 Adapter cable for professional-level control.
As an ultra-light, ultra-thin fabric light, the F21c 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.
