Light & Motion Announces KickStarter Campaign For New ‘Sidekick’ Companion Dive Light

Love diving with your GoPro camera? Hate it when you can’t use it during a night or dawn or dusk dive? Well, Light & Motion wants to help you out with that.

The company this week launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund its new companion light for GoPro‘s line of Hero action cameras.

The Sidekick will come in two 600-lumen models: the Duo, which sports a spot- and floodlight, and the single-beam Flood.

The Sidekick weighs 123 grams — less than the GoPro itself, is waterproof down to 60 meters, and the light power can be adjusted to match the conditions.

Light & Motion also plans to offer an “Accessory Mount Kit” that would position the light over the camera.

As of January 15th, Light & Motion had raised just over $15,000 out of its $50,000 goal with 29 days to go.
