As this is­sue’s fea­ture ex­plains, continuous light­ing can pro­vide an easy-touse alternative to stu­dio light­ing, and it’s es­sen­tial for shoot­ing video. If you want to give it a go with­out spend­ing a for­tune, Lume’s dinky Cube, which mea­sures just 1.5 inches across, might be just the thing. It’s ca­pa­ble of putting out a whop­ping 1500 lu­mens at three me­tres, and you’ll get 20 min­utes at full power, or two hours at 50% bright­ness, from the built-in bat­tery. A smart­phone app en­ables you to con­trol bright­ness, use it as a sim­ple flash or sync mul­ti­ple cubes.

First im­pres­sions_ It’s hard to be­lieve you can get this much light from such a tiny pack­age.
