Sidekick – A GoPro Companion Light


Have you heard of Sidekick?  No, not that flip phone you use to have back in the day to send AIMs to your BFFs.  Sidekick – the new companion light for Go Pro.

GoPro (as you probably already know) is a line of small, versatile cameras normally used for extreme sports to capture awesome tricks and scenery – or what your dog does when your away.

GoPro has many first party accessories to make sure you’re ready to go and record your next adventure.  However one type of accessory is missing: lighting.  This is where Sidekick comes in.

Sidekick is a GoPro compatible lighting system, that is waterproof (up to 60 meters, 196.85 feet), up to 4 hours of run-time on a single charge, which also works with existing GoPro mounts.

There are two different models, Sidekick and Sidekick Duo.  The Sidekick comes in Silver and has flood lighting.  The Sidekick Duo comes in Black and has Flood/Spot lighting.
