REVIEW – When it comes to capturing video and images, one of the most important things that you need is good lighting. Today I am going to tell you about the Lume Cube Flex Light Pro creator lighting system. It has turned out to be my favorite lighting system that I’ve tried so far. Let’s check it out.

Design and features
The Lume Cube Flex Light Pro has a control module that connects the two lights. This module has a small white on blue LED display and controls for brightness, and color temperature on the right site.
On the left side is the power connector, power switch, a USB-A port, and a USB-C port. You can use the USB ports to charge your phone or other gear while the Lume Cube Flex Light Pro is powered on.
Knurled wheels on the side allow you to adjust the color temperature and brightness of the ights.
The light stand is adjustable to a full height of 70 inches.
I tested the Lume Cube Flex Light Pro lights with my latest Gadgeteer video podcast and found them to be very easy to setup and adjust. The light stand allows for easy height adjustments and the gooseneck arms that hold each light can be easily bent to the desired angle.
I used a tripod with the Lume Cube Flex Light Pro behind the tripod, but you can also use the included phone holder that connects directly to the Lume Cube. I just find it easier to use my tripod’s phone holder because it has a cold shoe mount that I use for my Joby microphone.
The controller for the Lume Cube Flex Light Pro is easy to understand and use. I like that it has a bright display that shows the current color temp and brightness level.
There are 128 LEDs in each panel and the light is solid and doesn’t flicker.
The image above gives you an idea of how you can bend the gooseneck arms to put the light exactly where you want it.
In addition to adjusting each light on its gooseneck arm, each light can also rotate 270º.

I think I look best with the Flex Light Pros set to 5000K or 3000K. It helps offset my naturally pale complexion.
What I like
- Easy to setup and tear down
- Light stand is adjustable
- Lights are adjustable both in angle and color temp, brightness
- Excellent lighting
What I’d change
If you regularly make videos, or do studio photography, I think the Lume Cube Flex Light Pro studio lights are great for non-professionals like me. They are quick to setup, quick to adjust, and everything stores in a handy zippered storage case so that you can take your lights wherever you shoot.
