came across these in the description of a pretty cool photo. Just curious if anyone has tried them.
Never heard of them... Interesting.
Sounds like something you use to make a fruity umbrella drink. What are they? What do they do?
I have the 2.0 version. Just got it and have yet to use it much. I think that to really make it useful one to get at least two. I mount mine on one of those mini tripods so I can move it around to get the desired coverage.
Also, beyond photography it will be very useful for repair projects where light is low. For example I need to replace a fuse so all of the power must be off. I will setup the Lume cube to illuminate the fuse box while I work on it.
Wish I could add more but I have simply not had a chance to use it much at this point.
Probably would have been better if Siri didn’t auto correct my lume into lime...

Keep me posted on your thoughts on these. For the portability alone they seem liken they would be super handy to have.
That <female dog>!!!! Interesting.. looks like something I might need!
I have 2 of the suckers and have used them in the past. I bought them primarily for underwater photography (I've got a camera housing for shooting underwater but nothing for lights--the Lume Cubes are workable without any housing up to 10 feet depth I believe--maybe deeper.
A couple of quick comments: if you like continuous light--especially for shooting products or a still life (so you can see where the shadows fall and easily manipulate the setup then they'll be perfect for you. I too will sometimes put them on a mini-tripod. If you leave them on continuously they get really very hot--too hot to hold and potentially dangerous I'd think next to something flammable. They can also be set up as slaves (though I have yet to use them in that fashion). I haven't tried using the app (though I downloaded it)--it sounds promising but I couldn't figure it out or how I'd use it after I opened it.
Given the price, the size, I think they're a must-have. They fit in to a side pocket easily, can recharge quickly.
Great info and mini review. Adding two of these to my wishlist!
Look so much more modern than the candles I've been using!
Do they list a flash guide number somewhere? Specs say waterproof to 30 feet!
