GoPro Hero is a unique camera that is capable of much. For this and love it. Shoot, as you go up a steep slope on his brand new daunhillnom karbonovom horse – priceless. Shoot as you conquer the waves somewhere in Honolulu – unique !. But with all these delights, advantages and rave reviews, there is one small (looking for someone, of course) spoon of tar. GoPro Hero unwell shows in the dark. Precisely because Knog coined his lighting class made-for-GoPro Qudos last year. Now, it is not surprising that Qudos has a competitor in the form of a Sidekick.
Sidekick made by Californian company Light & Motion, which is already known for its activities in the field of manufacturing lighting products for osuschestveleniya shooting outdoors. So for them it is the direction in some way – its element.
The basic model Sidekick Flood made primarily from a single aluminum body monoloitnogo. Among other things, this waterproof gizmo can “dive” to a depth of 200 feet (61 m), and even there, uses its own set of LEDs – XM-L U2, to produce a wide beam of light at 600 lumens. Sidekick Duo model allows its users to switch to the rays of 400 lumens when they wish.
400 lumens, by the way is the maximum light output for the entire line Qudos all.
Power fixture provided USB connection with 18650 Li-ion batteries, whose battery level is displayed color LED indicator on the front of the device so that you can notice immediately. When operating at full capacity in the full 600 lumens single charge should be enough to record entertainment for about an hour of use.
Although the Sidekick does not correspond to the full size GoPro, as it does Qudos, his method of applying attractively simple – the existing bolt to install GoPro replaced by longer.
