Olight I1R EOS Flashlight

Olight I1R EOS Flashlight

Every Christmas, for the past 10 or so years, I have asked for the same thing: a flashlight and/or a pocket knife. Why? Because there is almost always a chance that every day that I will need to use one of them. My first thought when I got my hands on the flashlight was about just how small and compact it was. At half the size of a tube of lip balm, this light takes up minimal space and packs a big punch. Click here to read my initial impressions of the Olight I1R EOS Flashlight.

Lights, Camera, LumeCube

Anyone who knows me, knows I’m not the best photographer.  I know the ‘rules’ but don’t have the ‘eye’.  Lighting always throws me.  I think there’s enough, and end up with pictures of darkness, or I think its too dark and miss shots I’d love to capture.  So, I just read about this new product, that’s still a bit ‘hush-hush’.  I can tell you a few things, and when I get my hands on one to review (by the end of October), I’ll be able to tell (and show) you how it works.  Its made to work with your Go-Pro, camera on your smartphone or regular digital camera.
The facts:


(from LumeCube.com) will be released on November 11, 2015, but there was a soft launch in Australia today.  It appears to have some really great features, and could be useful to professional photographers, outdoor enthusiasts, and everyone who ever needs more light to take a decent picture or video.  I’m including some specifications below, but definitely check out their webpage, and video: http://www.lumecube.com/collections/main


Single LumeCube

Single LumeCube, can be used in multiples or mounted.

  • App-controlled LED light for capturing both stills and videos (available in iOS and Android formats)
  • Compatible with smartphone cameras, action cams and traditional digital cameras
  • Measuring only one-and-a-half inches
  • Waterproof
  • 1,500+ lumens of light in both video mode and in strobe mode.
  • Highly durable, light-weight
I believe there will be 3 configurations available.  Check out LumeCube.com, or their Facebook page at facebook.com/lumecube.  Make sure to stop back the beginning of November to see what the LumeCube can do!

A lightweight headlamp that packs a punch…

I have used many different types of headlamps and many of them seem to utilize very similar designs.  The Princeton Tec Byte headlamp didn’t try to reinvent the wheel when it created the Byte, but it definitely has some designs aspects that set it apart from the competition.
