Lume Cube, known for its affordable line of small, adjustable lighting options, will soon be announcing a modular 360 lighting solution for less than $1,000–hopefully this summer.
The solution will most likely be a rig containing six of its 60-degree beam-angle lights, each with a max output of 1,500 lumens. The 1.5-inch cube lights, which have a The apparent color of light measured in degrees kelvin (K), i.e. Daylight emits a blueish 5600K light, and Tungsten fila... More of 6000 Kelvin, offer both continuous lighting and flash modes and 10 brightness options in increments of 150 lumens.
Brightness, mode and other features can be controlled by buttons on the light itself or via Lume Cube’s companion Android and iOS apps, making it easy for 360 videographers to adjust the lighting of one or multiple Lume Cubes in their scene while hiding or at a distance.
The lights last more than two hours at 50 percent output and are rechargeable via USB cable. They’re also waterproof up to 100 feet.
Each Lume Cube is equipped with a ¼ 20 mount on the bottom of the light or can attach to any magnetic surface.
Lume Cube also produces a number of accessories, including four-pack CTO and RGBY gel packs or a set of three diffusers of various steps ($29.99), or two sizes of honeycomb diffusers ($19.99). All can connect to the Lume Cube magnetically via the light-house accessory ($49.99).
Each Lume Cube costs $79.99, and a four-pack costs $299.99.
Lume Cube plans to have more information about its 360 lighting rigs this summer. Until then, the company is happy to work with individuals and production teams looking for custom lighting solutions.
In June, Lume Cube will launch a new light about half the size of the existing Lume Cube with a max output of 1000 lumens for $59.99 each.
