LitraTorch Adventure Light Review | Amazing Light For Your GoPro

Published

on

If you are in the market for a small portable light kit for your GoPro you may want to take a look at the Litra Torch. This light is super compact but is extremely powerful. The light comes in at a size of 1.5 x 1.5 inches but is capable of outputting 800 lumens on its brightest setting, 450 lumens on the medium setting and 100 lumens on its lowest setting. It features an ultra wide beam which is perfect for use with GoPro’s and other wide angle action cameras. The construction of this impressive little light is made of a high quality ribbed aluminium which helps dissipate the heat. The durable build also makes it impact and drop resistant, perfect for all adventurists. The Litra Torch is water proof up to 30 feet making it very useful for divers and taking underwater video and photos.

On thing I really like about the LitraTorch is the fact that they have made the light to be very versatile when it comes to mounting. The single light package includes a GoPro finger mount so it can easily be used within the GoPro mount ecosystem. The litraTorch also has a built-in magnet in the back allowing you to attach the light to any metal surface. Located on the back and on the bottom are two 1/4 tripod mounts for even more versatility. Now if that wasn’t enough they even include a detachable clip allowing you to mount the unit on a belt buckle or similar item.

Like most lights that are capable of producing high lumen outputs, they can get quite hot. Litra has included a silicon housing sleeve to make the unit more comfortable to handle when using it at the highest setting for long periods of time. A silicon diffuser is also included in the box which when mounted on the light helps soften and diffuse the beam.

Battery Life Of the LitraTorch

The battery life of the litraTorch is very impressive and are as follows:

  • Brightest (800 Lumen) 35 Minutes
  • Medium (450 Lumen) 70 Minutes
  • Lowest (100 Lumen) 4 Hours

The Litra Torch can be purchased as a single light or as a dual light package with various accessories depending on how you will be using it. They offer GoPro triple and double mounts, handles and even a smart phone mount. All in all it is a good solid light and a good solid purchase if you are in the market for a super bright mini light for your GoPro camera bag.

FeiyuTech G5 vs FeiyuTech G6 vs GoPro Karma Grip | Which Gimbal Has The Best Stabilization

Published

on

In this head to head comparison video we compare the quality of stabilization of the Karma Grip, FeiyuTech G5 and the new FeiyuTech G6 to see which GoPro gimbal can provide the smoothest footage. Now I would like to point out that this is not a scientific test as there are many factors that can affect the results, but it can give us a good general idea of the stabilization performance of each gimbal. To keep things fair in this comparison video I tried to keep things similar for every pass. I walked the same path, same speed in a normal way I would walk when filming with a gimbal. In the video I play all the footage side by side to get a visual feel of which one is smoothest. I then play the footage side by side again but this time I speed up the content by 600%. Speeding up the footage exaggerates the jitter and imperfections and can help identify the smoothest GoPro gimbal.

Now after going over the footage numerous times I would have to say when it comes to the gimbal that has the best stabilization they are all pretty close. If I had to pick one I would say the G6 is a slight bit smoother. Now when it comes to features that is a whole different story. The FeiyuTech gimbals are much better suited to my needs when it comes to features and usability.

Litra Torch Light Versus Lume Cube | Which Do I Prefer

Published

on

If you are in the market for a small portable light for your GoPro, watch this video as I compare the Litra Torch Light against the Lume Cube to see which one I think is best. Now I would like to say that both are excellent lights and no matter which one you choose you will be very happy with your purchase. Both lights come as a single light purchase or as a kit geared to GoPro and other action cameras or for your smart phone. The base light price is the exact same for both at $79.99. What comes with the lights is quite different. The Lume Cube ships with a charging cable and instruction manual while the Litra Torch Light comes with a silicon light diffuser, silicon housing, GoPro mount, charging cable, mounting clip and manual. With all the extra gear the Litra Torch is a better value.

Now when it comes to mounting, the Lume Cube has a single 1/4 tripod mount located on the bottom. You will need to purchase a GoPro adapter if you wish to mount it via a GoPro mount. The Litra Torch has 2 1/4 tripod mounts, one on the bottom and one on the back. In addition there is a built-in magnet on the back which allows you to easily mount the light to any metal object. When you factor in the included GoPro adapter and clip the Litra Torch Light is quite a bit more versatile when it comes to mounting. Both lights are water proof and have a built-in rechargeable battery. Both lights also offer an optional gel and diffuse kits.

Brightness and Battery Life

The Lume Cube has a max output of 1500 lumens while the Litra Torch only comes in at a max of 800 lumens. I do not own the equipment to test these measurements to verify if they are indeed correct. However if you look at the sample photos below, there does not seem to be much difference between the two lights when at the brightest setting. When you look close the Litra Torch seems to be a slight bit brighter and shows more detail in the ground. In this test both lights are mounted side by side with a GoPro Hero 6 Black in the middle.

When it comes to battery life these are the ratings provided by the manufactures ( I have not tested these numbers).

Litra Torch Light Battery Rating

  • Brightest – 35 Minutes
  • Medium – 70 Minutes
  • Lowest – 4 Hours

Lume Cube Battery Rating

  • Brightest – 20 – 30 Minutes
  • Medium – 2 Hours

One major feature that the Lume Cube has that is absent from the Litra torch is its Bluetooth connectivity. You can slave many Lume Cubes together and have them fire off at the same time when using them as a flash for photography with your smart phone and the Lume Cube companion app. If this is an important feature for you then the Lume Cubes may be the best fit for your needs. Myself however I only use the lights for filming so its more of a bonus feature.

So all thing considered they are both well designed and function superbly. When it comes to my preference and the ones I tend to use on a regular basis is the Litra Torch Lights. I always have them packed in my camera backpack when I am out hiking and adventuring. The reason being is I like its simple one button usage design and I really like the versatility I have when  I need to mount the lights. Like I stated, no mater which light kit you choose you will be supper happy with your purchase.
