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. Have you heard of the Lume Cube?

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

Lume Cube

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

Lume Cube Main Features

  • 1.5" Cube encased in water resistant silicone shell
  • Flash or constant video mode for GoPro® Hero Camera or smartphone
  • Fully controllable flash & brightness duration via smartphone app
  • Smartphone app allows you to individually control up to 5 Cubes
  • Dimmable between 0 - 1500 lumens
  • Magnetically mount or suction to most surfaces
  • 1/4 20 mount for attachment to tripods and action cam accessories
  • Easily sync to slave flash via optical sensor
  • Approx. 2 hours battery life with usb charger – 1 hour to fully charge
  • Sold as a single unit, 2 pack or 6 pack in a variety of colors
  • Proprietary mount and water proof case made to be used with the GoPro’s
  • Bluetooth

To me, this looks pretty cool and I will most certainly be getting hold of a couple to review once released. For you, why not head over to their website, check out the Kickstarter project once it is up and running (18.11.14) and get involved (now ended).
