Lume Cube Light House

Light House: the perfect light modifying system for Lume Cube. Kit comprises form-fitting aluminium housing and three magnetic diffusion filters. RGBY Color Gels, Diffusion Bulbs and Honeycomb Grids available.

News Image

The Lume Cube Light House and 3 Diffusers Kit consists of housing and magnetic filters. The Lume Cube slides snuggly into the housing and is secured by clamping closed. The system uses strong magnets that allow you to place one or more filters over the light source to control the level of light diffusion that you need. The front lip ensures the filter fits firmly in place and cannot be knocked off during use. Manufactured using a 180-micron material, the Zircon filters are more than double the thickness of a normal lighting filter – sturdy, durable and easy-to-use. The RGBY Color Pack comes with four basic colour gels (Red, Green, Blue, Yellow) which easily mount to the Light House. With dual sided magnets, you can stack the gels on top of each other, or other accessories, to blend colours and creatively achieve a unique look. With the Diffusion Bulb Pack you're able to soften the light output of the Lume Cube and create a unique and balanced throw of light. Useful in creative portrait photography and interviews, the bulbs even allow you to turn your Lume Cube into a tabletop lamp to illuminate the room. You can also mount a diffusion bulb on top of a CTO or colour gel and create a completely unique lighting experience. The Lume Cube Honeycomb Pack includes 2 different sized grids which allow you to alter the shape and intensity of light output from your Lume Cube. When mounted, the grids will create a cleaner more balanced spread of light as well as eliminate any unwanted light spill. (September 2017)
