The Lume Cube LED Light is a very small and very interesting waterproof lighting package. There’s countless small accessory LED lights for action cameras and underwater imaging, but the Lume Cube is in a league of its own.
For $79, if the Lume Cube was just a small, place anywhere LED light, it would already be a great value. But the Lume Cube can also be ‘programmed’ via bluetooth using its own app, and it can function as a slave flash with the onboard optical sensor.
The Lume Cube app allows users to adjust several settings including flash brightness, duration and delay. But for controlling the light on the fly there’s also a couple onboard buttons for changing the brightness, or entering into flash mode.
At 1.5 inches cubed, the Lume Cube is a tiny powerhouse of light that can deliver 1500 lumens, or 150 lux as far as 9 feet away. The Lume Cube can run for two hours at 50% brightness, and is waterproof down to 100 feet.
But the real beauty of the light is that the very fair price makes it very affordable to invest in two or four of these lights to create incredibly well lit scenes, above and below water. A single Lume Cube will set you back $79, and it is also available as a pair for $149, or a GoPro kit with two Lume Cubes and a basic tray for $179.
