Light up the night or a photo subject with a LumeCube light.
Although it’s small, at just 1.5 x 1.5 x 1.5 inches, the LumeCube is strong. Its aluminum casing makes it resistant to bumps and to falls onto hard surfaces.
LumeCube is versatile. Optional mounting brackets make LumeCube work with many drones, SLR and video cameras, GoPro cameras, smartphones, bicycles and some handheld video gimbals. You can even use Lube Cube as a slave flash for still photography. Want to dim the light? The output is adjustable, and a smartphone app lets you adjust multiple lights. Diffuse the light with custom-fit warming gels.
Recharge LumeCube from your computer, an AC outlet, a battery pack or your car’s power port.
Illumination in each LumeCube comes from a 1,500-lumen daylight-balanced LED. Intensity is more than 750 Lux. The beam angle is 60 degrees. With 270 refraction points, the lens emits lighting that is even, with no hot spots and smooth falloff.
The Li-Ion battery that powers LumeCube is built in and rechargeable. There’s no need to wait until the battery is completely discharged to begin recharging. Just plug the included micro USB cord into an AC outlet adaptor, computer, battery pack or car power port adaptor. Recharging takes 40 to 60 minutes.
Runtime, if the LumeCube is used in mixed service, is 2-plus hours. Full-on continuous illumination for video is about 20 minutes.
Two buttons atop the LumeCube offer convenient adjustments. One button flashes the light. The other adjusts the light output in 10 percent increments, with 10 settings. Finer control is available through LumeCube’s Bluetooth connectivity to either an iPhone or Android phone. A downloadable smartphone app allows you to program multiple LumeCube lights in 1 percent increments. It also reads out battery reserve levels.
The optional Light-House modification system allows LumeCube to accept warming gels and other diffusing elements over the lens. Attachment is elegantly simple, using magnets. The Light-House cover slips on and snaps into its secure, locked position. No tools are needed to install and remove the cover or diffuser attachments.
Looking for underwater lighting? LumeCube can be immersed to a depth of 100 feet. Its waterproof encasement makes it ideal for use in rain or on a beach, even where crashing waves generate a spray. The micro USB recharging port has a waterproof screw-on cover. And the control buttons on top of the cube are protected by a waterproof membrane.
An optical sensor allows the LumeCube to work as a slave flash for still photography. The flash syncs down to 1/125 of a second. Setting for flash photography takes seconds. With the quarter-inch female mounting port on the bottom, the LumeCube can mount on a tripod or mini tripod. It can run off its recharged battery for flash duty, or from an AC outlet. Multiple LumeCubes can be used in slave arrangements, with the output for each set by using the smartphone app.
Complete lighting kits are available for the Mavic Pro, Phantom 4, Inspire and Matrice, and Yuneec Typhoon H. Each complete lighting kit includes two LumeCube lights in addition to the drone mounting brackets.
