Light & Motion has revealed Sidekick, which is described as the “perfect light” for your GoPro Hero action cameras and which is available for pre-order through Kickstarter.
It has been a while since the last time a Kickstarter project consisting of a product aimed at photographers or videographers has received as much attention as the Sidekick.
This product is a companion light (hence its name) for GoPro Hero cameras. It has been designed by a company called Light & Motion and it can be pre-ordered on Kickstarter right now.
Light & Motion introduces the lightest, tiniest, most powerful companion light for GoPro Hero cameras
The manufacturer says that Sidekick is the “perfect light” for action photographers and videographers. This product is described as the lightest and tiniest companion light for GoPro Hero cameras.
Additionally, Sidekick is said to provide the most powerful light beam for Hero shooters, thanks to a 600-lumen beam.
This companion light is compatible with all GoPro Hero cameras and it will allow users to capture better images and videos in low-light conditions or in backlit scenes.
Sidekick is waterproof and could offer a battery life of up to 4 hours on a single charge
Light & Motion says that the Sidekick is waterproof down to 60 meters / 200-feet. This means that you can take deep in the ocean in order to capture some gorgeous underwater photography.
Its runtime stands at up to 4 hours, depending on usage. However, the company guarantees that Sidekick will offer at least one hour of runtime on a single charge.
This accessory is factory sealed, which means that you do not have to open it.
If you are wondering how are you going to charge its battery, then you should now that there is a slide-on USB adapter included in the package and which will recharge the Li-ion battery.
This Kickstarter project has been funded successfully and will begin shipping this March
Sidekick comes with a wide-angle beam. For users who want a spot beam, Light & Motion is offering the Sidekick Duo, which provides a 400-lumen beam.
If this project has convinced you, then head over to its Kickstarter page to secure your unit. The cheapest package stands at $100 and it will ship this March.
The good thing is that the project has already been funded, so it is sure to ship this Spring.
It is worth noting that the retail price will be bigger and that the next batch will begin shipping in June.
