A pocket-sized lighting studio for photo & video

The KICK is small – about the size of a phone – and lightweight, so is easy to take along. Still, KICK boasts more creative features than any other pocket-sized photo and video light on the market: in addition to adjustable brightness and color temperature, you get full color – any color, animated light, built-in video effects and sampling of light. KICK can be handheld or mounted on a tripod.

KICK works with any camera device: smart phones, DSLR cameras, compact cameras and others.

Use KICK standalone: Via manual controls you can adjust brightness and color temperature. Or: Remote control one or multiple KICKs via iOS or Android app to enjoy full color and animated effects.

Digital paint box with light sampler

Paint with light! KICK can do any color you want.

KICK can do all the colors of the rainbow and any color in between. Choose from a standard color picker, or sample the light effect you want the KICK to emit.

With KICK + the Kick iOS or Android app you can sample colors and light effects directly from the world around you via the phone camera (even while using it). Simply point the iPhone towards the light effect you want KICK to recreate, tap the screen – and KICK will emit that light.

Sampled light effects are automatically stored in the app’s effects library for reuse later on.




Animated light

Effects library & sampling of video effects: KICK excels at animated light.

Candle flicker. Blistering lightning storms – KICK can produce any animated light effect. Choose one from the built-in effects library, or sample video effects from an existing video.

You can sample light effects from any video stored on your phone. This is how it works: From within the Kick app you can open and run any video; move the cursor over the light effect you want to sample, and the app will stream that light directly to your KICK(s).

Sampled light effects are automatically stored in the app´s effects library for reuse later on.
