A couple of years ago I found Lumecube lights. These little portable mini lights that have become a fixed item I pack in my camera bag for just about every trip. Recently they released a new version called the Lumecube Air which addressed several usability things (not to mention the price) that I had with the original Lumecube. Rather than write it all out there, I did a quick video on the latest Lumecube Air below.
Also, they gave me a discount code “MattAIR50” that will save you 10% (off anything in the store too!). But it’s only good for the first 50 people (update… they just added 50 more!). So if you’re going to grab one from their store, jump on it fast.
Lume remarks that these cubes can be used for still photography as strobes. How for a DLSR? Do they connect via slave or wire. Slave built in? Seems they are to be used as a continuous light for video.
Thanks for the video Matt. Just used your discount code to add two of these puppies to my old school cube. Grazi!
Thanks for the video on what seems to be a good photographers aid. Did not even know that these existed and now I’ll be on the hunt.
I did the Kickstarter for the Expedition kit which gave me 2x Lume Cubes and 2x Lume Cube Air added to the one I already had for a total of 5. As for Revddf – It was long and frustrating road but new management moved out the old, infused much needed cash, and the came through with their pledges.
I love using them with my phone for taking pics of family and friends with the phone clip.
Thanks again for the informative videos, these are great!
Ive been looking for some sort of lighting equipment for aaaagessss & with the info you’ve given us I think this is the way to go for me, brilliant. I’ve grown so many muscles with all the stuff I’m carrying around at the moment.
Thanks for the video review. I need to get a couple of those.
Informative video… nice product.
BUT, at the beginning of the video, you mentioned that you would explain why you would wait to the end to show us what’s in the box… but never did. I guess I’ll have to buy one to find out 😊
Hi Stephen – At the end I mentioned that the entire video was being lit by my lumecubes. That’s why I didn’t show them. But there were images of them and everything in the box during the video.
Best deal is the videographers bundle…..including Matt’s discount. Perfect. Thanks for the video and insight.
Thanks again, Matt. I have one original LumeCube and have been contemplating buying another. This is it! Great accessory, and as usual, your video offered additional usage insights. Bob
Hey Matt! Another excellent video—thanks for the great information! Ordering a couple of these today!
Thanks, Matt. Your discount code made the choice to buy a lot easier. I’ll be looking forward to trying them out.
Thanks Matt…always good to have a light-weight portable light source that is easy to access and light enough to keep in the camera bad. I’m going to check out the website. Cheers Sheila
Thanks Matt, I am new to photography and don’t want to buy a lot of equipment so these looked perfect. Next could you do a video on their light box?
Waiting for mine to come. I backed the Kickstarter campaign for this two or three years ago. It’s been a long and rocky road, and at this stage I’m more relieved they finally actually made it to production rather than excited. Nevertheless, I’ll be glad to squeeze it into a camera bag and use them.
You didn’t mention it in the video, but aren’t these less bright than their bigger brothers?
Thanks, Matt. I’ve been wanting to pick up some light weight, low power lights for illuminating foregrounds during astrophotography. Hoping these will do the trip. The one thing you missed in your video in comparing the two products is power. These are 400 LUX at 1 meter. The older ones are nearly twice the power at 750 LUX. But that’s just fine for my intended purpose.
Matt – great little video review of the new Air cubes.
I totally agree – these are “in my kit” on almost every trek, when I can pry them from my teen daughter’s grabby hands! 😉 Already ordered a 2-pack of them and can’t wait to fire ’em up!
Great video, thanks Matt!
I had looked at the old ones but hadn’t tried them, but now I want these new ones!
