The basic tool that photographers should have! It provides Illumination Mode and aperture F-value Mode switch, Key-light Mode and Fill-light Mode supported.

Great App interface, connecting to 12 MCs smoothly

Using this app on iPhone and iPad with 12 Aputure MCs on a 10 camera TV show in GA. The DP and Gaffer are enjoying the convenience and speed at which we can make adjustments to the lights using the Sidus Link app. We do have connectivity issues sometimes when a lot of cameras and audio all have their wireless transmitters on, but hopefully this becomes more reliable with firmware updates. It may just be the nature of having that many wireless transmitters in the same room.

Another issue we are having is that when we bring up an individual light that is already set to a HUE value, it doesn’t always recall what the value was and instead the color wheel point resets back to the middle. If we did not note the hue number, then we are stuck guessing what the value was to try and get the light back to where it was. This happens also when we lose connection and regain connection, the app seems to lose memory of where the values are even if the lights maintain those values.

All in all, we are impressed with the app and look forward to future versions of it.

Absolute Game Changer

As a self funded independent film maker, I tend to wear the hat of cinematographer, gaffer, production designer, director, SFX, producer, editor, etc. Having this invaluable tool in my pocket to adjust color temperature, brightness, build scenes, control effects while operating a camera rig makes all the difference for my production process. So much so, that I even returned the two Nanlites I had purchased in order to convert to an all Aputure, Sidus paired system. Utilization of Sidus was so important to me that I am without lights as I await the release of Aputure’s 60x Bi-Colors which will sync beautifully to Sidus alongside my 300x and MC. Sidus couldn’t be more stable and user friendly. It is effortless to navigate and the depth of the options and settings are so exciting. The capacity to do lighting gags from phone while operating my camera opens up a world of possibilities creatively without dependency on additional crew for my intimate sets. I have only used Sidus for a month but I am now a fan girl for life, truly.

A smart app that just keeps getting smarter!

I’m not usually enthusiastic when I hear a lighting manufacturer has developed its own app. My preference is to use one lighting control app for many lights made by different manufacturers, but some companies do such a good job you find yourself enjoying their app with or without your own 3rd party lighting control app!

Sidus link is pretty easy to get up and running for rudimentary, but powerful control, which is wonderful especially now that LED’s allow manufacturers to add so many capabilities, from white light tuning, RGB color changing, to sophisticated user tunable effects. Being able to control multiple units and change their values globally is more and more a requirement.

On top of that, the Sidus Link app now gives you the ability to create effect timelines so that you can program individual lights and/or groups of lights into automated sequences that range from very basic to multi-level complexity. I’ve only scratched the service, but I can see there is a lot more capability available. The nice thing is, Aputure is continually making the app better and are receptive to user feedback.
