One of the biggest weaknesses of mobile cameras is shooting in low-light. The sensor can’t usually handle it very well, and the built-in light sources are usually… well… crap. Here to help with that is Lume Cube, a product currently being funded on Kickstarter that hopes to quite literally light up your smartphone and GoPro imagery.
The Lume Cube is a small, pocketable LED light source that can pump out a whopping 1500 lumens worth of light, all of which can be precisely controlled via a dedicated smartphone app. Even better than the 1500 lumens is that you can simultaneously use and control up to five of these little devices to output a rather impressive 7500 lumens.
Lume Cubes are balanced at a cool 5600K and are capable of two hours of continuous use at 50% power, which can be recharged in an hour via USB. And a powerful magnet, suction cup mount and Joby-made tripod ensure that you can shoot from almost anywhere.
If you’re looking to get your hands on one or more, you can do so over on the Kickstarter page.
Lume Cubes are available to purchase as a single unit for $59, a 2-Pack for $99, and so on and so forth depending on your needs and depth of your wallet. You can also spice up your little light cubes by choosing one of the many color options.
The Lume Cube has already amassed an impressive $36k of its $50k goal, and with 26 more days to go, it looks like it will be successfully funded. To find out more or put down your pledge, head over to the kickstarter by clicking here.
