If you are not impressed with your smart phones’ ability to take photos in low light, you’ll be happy to see the iBlazr. It’s an LED flash that connects to standard 3.5mm audio jacks.

Here are the specs:

Iblazr has the most efficient LEDs in their size. It provides over 100 lux on 1m in video mode (x7 than iPhone) and more than 180 lux in flash mode (x4 than iPhone). The state of the art optics has just 1mm in thickness but provides a 60 degrees beam.


There are other flash options out there, but this is the first I’ve seen with still flash for photography with an app. Ideally, it could function similarly to professional flashes that can be timed with your individual phone’s camera to tune your photos. The strength of the flash and its duration could make your photographs look less flash-like. It should be noted that iPhone 5 users will have the flash attached to the bottom of the phone, so that might have a particularly different light configuration than other photos.
