Digital Camera World Verdict

If you already own the Lume Cube RGB Panel Pro V1 and have no need for an additional light source then there’s probably little point in upgrading. The RGB Panel Pro 2.0 refines rather than redevelops the series’ lineage. However, if you’re in the market for an LED light source, this is Lume Cube’s best panel to date. It’s packed with a wealth of lighting options, has a seamless, solid casing and the fact that it doubles as a power bank is the icing on the cake.

The Lume Cube RGB Panel Pro 2.0 is the follow-up to Lume Cube’s flagship on-camera light, the RGB Panel Pro, one of the best LED light panels available. The device’s constant LED light makes it especially suited for videographers, but it’s also an attractive prospect for photographers who crave softer lighting. Its smartphone form factor means it’ll slip into even the most compact kit bags, as opposed to a bulkier flashgun.
