Light & Motion Sidekick Overview

The black Sidekick Duo from Light & Motion is a compact, yet powerful LED light for the GoPro that attaches to your existing GoPro mounts, letting it accompany your camera no matter where the action takes you -- even underwater, thanks to its factory-sealed design that is waterproof to depths of 197'. The light features switchable/adjustable spot and flood modes that gives you the flexibility to control the amount and type of light to suit your POV footage. It provides a 90° flood and 23° spot beam angles above water, and 60° flood and 12° spot beam angles underwater. To adapt to the situation at hand, the light output is adjustable from high, medium, and low output levels, with a maximum output of 600 lumens in flood mode and 400 lumens in spot mode. A two button system makes it easy to switch between modes.

The Sidekick uses a simple bolt extender to attach to the opposite side of a GoPro thumbscrew, making the Sidekick compatible with virtually every GoPro mount. Out-of-the-box it mounts vertically on the side of the camera, but it can also be mounted above the camera using the optional Dive Arm Mount Kit. Other optional accessories include a Cold Shoe/Tripod Kit for mounting on a DSLR or tripod, and a GoPro Mount Adapter for direct mounting to a GoPro three-prong mount.

Weighing less than the GoPro itself, the Sidekick won't hinder your POV action footage. It is powered using an internal lithium-ion battery that enables continuous run times up to four hours in the Low output setting. The battery is recharged using an included charging cable that slides onto the Sidekick and plugs into any standard USB wall charger. Charging time for a depleted battery is approximately 4.5 hours. A colored LED indicator clearly displays battery levels during use and when charging.

FL-1 Certification

The Sidekick meets the ANSI/NEMA FL-1 Standard, a testing protocol to scientifically measure a light's brightness, run-time, and water/impact resistance.

Light & Motion Sidekick Reviews

failed on first use

By John

Perhaps my experience was atypical, but it leaked and died on my first dive with it. It started bubbling at less than forty feet and that was that. Nice form factor but it was not reliable for me, not even once.

Works

Tried this out a few weeks ago on diving trip. Had it mounted to GoPro on top of still camera. Really worked great. Like it so much I'm buying another. Wil mount them to strobe arms now.

Sending mine back

I had a lot of expectations for this light but in reality it did not even come close. The 1st copy I received did not work. In all fairness it may have been a return that B&H shipped (by mistake?). 2nd copy had a few defective parts and it will be going back for good. I still like the idea and design of this light L&M has to work harder to deliver a consistent product at high quality.

Awesome Light

After two weeks scuba diving, the light does a decent job. It is easy to use and compact. Paired with a GoPro, it provides adequate lighting but obviously not as good as those costing 3X the price. I recommend it for the recreational diver.

Second One

This the second one I purchased. Used the first one with my GoPro and housed camera last year and was so impressed I got another and am placing them on my strobe arms. This is a really nice unit very compact and bright for its size.

Reliable and durable

question

Does this come with the Mini Flex Arm?
Asked by: Erick L.
Nope. I tried using one without and it worked fine with a Gopro 2 and the standard housing, but the dedicated underwater housing blocked a significant proportion of the light. It's relatively easy to get a flex arm direct from Light and Motion. They offer a good service. Certainly get much better results using it, especially underwater.
