The Lume Cube is Here!

Waterproof Lighting Solutions for Smartphones, Go Pros and Digital Cameras

Post updated January 2018: Lighting is everything in photography and video work…without it you have nothing.

Many people use Smartphones or Go Pro's as their walkabout cameras these days. Therefore it seems a bit "overkill" to set up a full lighting rig for a quick shot lasting only a few seconds. Or to take just one or two photos.

What if there was an easier, simpler and more compact way? Well there is…

The Lume Cube

It is being released as a Kickstarter project today (18.11.14). The Lume Cube is being described as "the first technically-versatile, external flash and lighting experience for use with Smartphones, digital cameras and Go Pro".
