Aputure

Aputure

Aputure was founded in 2005 by a team of inspired filmmakers and videographers who wanted to create high quality content, but struggled with steep cost of equipment needed to do so. Determined to create professional-grade equipment at an affordable price, they started Aputure: the first company to provide truly affordable and professional cinema lighting with the quality and functions needed to fully realize any creative vision.

As a part of the creative community, Aputure continues to develop for the ever-expanding needs of budding artists and professionals alike. Each member of the A-team has felt the burning desire to bring a creative vision to life at all costs. We’re here to keep that fire alive.
