A Lume Cube is a very small and powerfull LED light that boasts an impressive 1500 Lumen output and is controllable through Bluetooth technology via an App for both IOS and Android.
This magical little cube is contained in a metal waterproof housing measuring 1.5″ by 1.5″ and will withstand being dropped from about 2 meters.
I first saw the Lume Cube being demonstrated on a tiny trade stand at the Photography Show in Birmingham, but unlike most of the sale pitches, there was something about this little cube that appealed to my curiosity making me stop and take a closer look.
The first thing that really struck me was the size in relation to the light output, it was incredible and then when I started to use the app to control the various features such as brightness, and timing of the light, It was like being a kid again playing with a torch.
Anyway, for Fran to be interested, they had to be interesting and before I could get my hand in my pocket, Fran had purchased four of them.
It’s still early days as I have just been playing with them, but I am sure they will live in the camera bag for when I really need to make use of them.
