Every Hero needs a Sidekick and if you own a GoPro and have tried shooting video in low light and backlit conditions, your Sidekick will shed light on your most heroic moments.
Sidekick comes in two varieties and uses a low-profile arm mounting next to the GoPro camera that is compatible with all GoPro mounts. The Cree U2 LED on both units delivers 600-lumens of light with 90-degrees of coverage. An additional 400-lumen spot on the Sidekick Duo targets light where it is needed narrowing the coverage to a focused 23-degrees. Both models are factory sealed making them waterproof up to 200 feet and can operate for up to four hours on a single charge of their lithium ion battery that is rechargeable through inductive USB, meaning no open ports.
Weighing in at just over four ounces, Sidekick is designed to go where your camera goes and with simple button operation, you can focus on the action and not on complicated operation. Light and Motion is the company behind the Sidekick and they have chosen Kickstarter to get their product launched by mid-2015, backers can grab one for just over 100 bucks.
