Loving the Lumee
Ask any expert selfie taker what’s most important to posting perfect pictures and you’ll likely hear all about the merits of good lighting.
Unfortunately, professional lighting is seldom available when we’re snapping cellphone photos
especially in dimly lit places like bars and restaurants — which is why the term “selfie” often translates to “unflattering photo.
Until now, that is, and the invention of the LuMee Phone case
Running on an internal battery that works independently from the phone, the case is recharged via a Micro USB (a charging cord is provided)
Depending on how often you use it, the battery can last from two hours at full brightness to 36 hours on the lowest setting —
and for those who are more sparing with their selfies, this timeline should lengthen).
To turn the LuMee on, you simply press a button on the back of the phone case. The lights dim or light up again each time you press and hold the button.
Make no mistake, the lights are bright. The first time I turned on the LuMee, I was almost blinded by the intensity of those tiny LEDs.
Once I adjusted my vision and could look into my phone’s front-facing camera, however, I could instantly tell a difference in how I looked.
At full power, the LuMee cast a nice warm glow on my face — and this was in broad daylight. My skin looked brighter and almost seemed to have a Photoshop-like quality to it. Thinking that was a fluke, I tried the LuMee out in a darkened bathroom (with lights completely off) and was shocked to discover very similar results.
The lights still gave my face a nice glow, and when I snapped a picture in complete darkness, it actually looked good.
Thanks to the LuMee phone case, you can take fabulous selfies anywhere and any time.
Providing much needed lighting in poorly lit spaces and at night, the easy-to-use LuMee casts a perfect glow every time you take a picture.
Even in the daytime, I found that the LuMee softly illuminated my face, producing pictures in which I looked less tired and more vibrant.
Beyond its original photographic purpose, the LuMee makes a great flashlight if you’re searching for something,
and the extra light comes in handy if you use the front-facing camera on your iPhone as a mirror for makeup touch-ups.
As I mentioned earlier, the phone case is bulky, which might take some getting used to,
but if that doesn’t sound like a big deal to you and good selfies are a big priority,
you might consider investing in a LuMee the next time you’re in the market for a new phone case.
Whether you need to put on your makeup and get better lighting, add a little light to your Facetime or Skype sessions,
or take brighter selfies, this product is what you want.

The fun shouldn't stop when the sun goes down
Invented by a professional photographer after being frustrated with seeing poorly lit faces of friends and family on video calls and imagery, the LuMee iPhone 5S / 5 case lights up a user's face with the simple push of a button. When the case is lit, the light fills in the shadows, enhancing the photo and making the subject bright and 'picture perfect'. LuMee also provides perfect lighting for video chatting, even in the dark! The better the quality of light, the more information your camera lens can capture and so the better quality images you can take in low light situations. With a series of powerful lights around the frame of your phone, your front facing camera has the all the light it needs to capture great selfies and photos, even when there is little available otherwise.
Today everyone wants to be seen in their best light, and LuMee makes it happen. This brilliant front-lit smartphone case is changing the way people shoot and share social media. It's your time to shine with LuMee.
Take better low light selfies
Selfies. Lets face it, for many people they're the medium for documenting ones life. The visual diary, the snapshots and memories digitally captured forever. Do you want yours blurred, washed out, dark and full of red eyes and startled faces after a flash? Would even use your front facing camera at night? Probably not. Well now you can and whether you're at the nightclub with friends, on holiday by the pool of campfire in the evening or catching a quick selfie opportunity at a famous spot, your selfies will never be the same again. When LuMee bathes the subject matter - namely you and your friends, you will always feature most prominently. Never again will dark foreground and background light mask your faces, or leave you scratching your head as to who that is next to you. From now on your selfies will be exactly as you would want them to be and you won't have to apologies on social media for their quality. Crisp sharp imagery and balanced lighting is the order of the day. After dark is when you and LuMee really shine. At clubs or concerts, and restaurants or rooftop parties, you can take brighter selfies. Light up the night right with LuMee!
LuMee shines bright everyday. From lighter, sharper and better quality selfies, putting in FaceTime or putting on makeup, LuMee is there for you. But one obvious practical use you may want to consider is using LuMee to find things in the dark. Or using it as a torch if you like. Is the remote underneath the sofa? Did you just drop your keys there? Need to read something in the dark? LuMee isn't just for great smartphone photography, it might just be a guardian angel too!
Variable dimmer - get the right amount of light
Of course, you won't always need the same amount of light for every situation. Find the right amount of light in any situation with the built in variable dimmer control. Once you have turned on the light, simply hold down the on/off button to achieve the perfect light for your surroundings.
Tough plastic casing protects against shocks and drops
Yes, the light up frame is the main selling point here but the LuMee is, of course, a case and a case must protect the phone. Rest assured then that your iPhone 5S / 5 is well protected in a tough a durable plastic casing that will take all the everday wear and tear you can throw at it plus some drop protection too and will withstand drops from waist level without any damages. We've got you covered!
Rechargeable battery and charger
Don't worry, you won't drain your iPhone's battery because, in actual fact, the power does not even come from your phone's battery but instead has it's own power supply! Regardless of your phone's battery, your LuMee will always shine bright. The case will stay lit at the lowest brightness for about 36 hours.
