— Best Action Camera Video Light? Litra Torch vs Lume Cube Review! —

There are plenty of action camera and GoPro accessories available these days, you can generally find something to help you overcome most challenges when shooting in the unfriendly environments these action cams excel in.

One BIG example is video lighting!

A few years back I was on a midnight shoot for a project called nightrider, where big wave surfer Mark Visser attempted to become the first to surf the Big wave Break – JAWS… at night! It was pitch black, so lighting was a real issue… We had to get custom LED panels designed up for the surfboard, along with numerous spotlights hanging out of a helicopter and several other ‘less-than-convenient’ solutions.

BUT – some of this could have been avoided if we had access to the portable LED action lights available these days for less than $100!

Companies like Lume Cube and Litra have released some great external flash & bluetooth video lights that make for great portable lighting solutions when shooting videos on the go, and in ‘unfriendly’ environments.

We recently did a video on the Lume Cube, discussing how great it can be for environments where you need its portability, durability and waterproof features, like action sports & diving, but also how it’s not a great option for more controlled shoots where you can get away with larger, more diffusible, (and cheaper) panels.

Litra have since released their alternative to the Lume Cube, the LitraTorch, and while it’s targeted at the same market and use-cases, the Litra website promises the Torch fixes some of the things things we didn’t like so much about the Lume Cube…

So, when Litra reached out offering to send us through a Litra Torch for us to test we jumped at the chance to put the two head-to-head.

So which is the best action camera LED video lighting option? After putting both products through their paces, we put together this video on the Lume Cube vs Litra Torch to give you our thoughts.

After this video my choice is Litra. Because 5700k and price. Maybe can use the new accessories DJI mount for Mavic of LC but with Litra. hehe.

Nelson Campana says:

Harshie says:

Hey Justin

Mrinal Singh says:

So Justin, is this better than the large light like the halogen lights, available attached to a stand?

Joseph Tossoukpe says:

Harshie says:

Hey guys, can you help me please: I want to change my channel name.. should i?? Is my name good or not

Communication Coach Alex Lyon says:

Great head-to-head comparison. My favorite moment was when you said Aluminium at 6:59. It’s so great. As you know, in the US, we use the spelling and pronunciation without the i toward the end. I wish I could get away with saying it your way because it sounds much cooler.

LitraGear says:

Thank you for the Review Justin! We appreciate your honest feedback. Love what you had to say about our Litra Torch.

Rafael Estevez says:

Wow… That’s what I’m looking for. I think lytra is better for vlogging…let’s find a bargain. I have yi.. 4k

Tech Alpha says:

jrcintron says:

Thanks Justin. Sort of unrelated; but could you give us a true comparison of PowerDirector and ActionDirector on Android. Why choose one over the other? And, or why have both? Thank you for your awesome informative videos.

Nice video. I just wanna say. You change the way you present the info a lot. You say one in meters then the other in feet, also 6000 one time and fifty-seven hundred the next. of course its understandable but I did have to pause here and there just to make sure i heard correctly.


I actually record all my videos on my channel with my Sony

Subscriber says:

Sounds like a great product to duct tape to my HERO Session to get some better low light footage.

EpicMango says:

I always wanted to try swimming at night


amazing sir love it

Erik Hui says:

But the Litra Torch could not use as Camera Flash. The LumeCube can do it.

Techy Mohit says:

Dogcube 51 says:
