PANDA’s rugged, glare-reducing case is made for mobile photo and video enthusiasts, features powerful, adjustable 18-light LED panel for photography and videography and provides high-quality light in both main-camera and “selfie” mode.

“Panda’s lighting solution lives in the case, just like your cell phone ‘lives’ with you—so it’s always ready at the click of a button to capture those spur of the moment memories.” says PANDA founder Erik Heiberg

Inspired by the constant, warm, and flattering light of Hollywood film sets, the PANDA (by Cue) mobile phone case offers a dimmable, adjustable, high-quality LED panel built right into the frame of its rugged housing. As an amateur photographer and former indie filmmaker, PANDA founder Erik Heiberg recognized a performance gap in cell phones that have been exceeding expectations on all fronts—except for lighting. “As photographers and filmmakers know, lighting is the key to capturing great photos and videos,” Heiberg said. “These phones have become the go-to choice for consumers and pros alike. They are delivering best-in-class resolution, filtering, and special effects—but they are still quite limited in their ability to perform in low light conditions. Panda augments these amazing capabilities with the high-quality light today’s cell phones deserve so that the moments you want to capture, your moments, look their best.”

Developers of Panda opted for a hardware solution over a software application for simple reasons. “The moments you capture don’t always wait for you to open up and adjust your app, and to honest, aren’t we all suffering from a bit of “app-athy”?” Heiberg said. “Panda’s lighting solution lives in the case, just like your cell phone ‘lives’ with you—so it’s always ready at the click of a button to capture those spur of the moment memories.”

PANDA will give up to 2 hours of continuous light at its highest setting and recharges via any usb port or accessory. It’s made of rugged, injection molded polycarbonate to protect any phone just like a regular case. And when the user is finished with PANDA’s light panel, it conveniently folds back into the case which not only protects the panel, but gives PANDA an elegant, seamless look and feel.

PANDA is so convenient and simple to reach for whenever a little extra light is needed. From reading a book, to walking to the car at night, PANDA is a veritable Swiss Army light!
