Nowadays, it’s more uncommon to carry around a dedicated digital camera with you than it is to just pull out your smartphone to take a picture. There are pros and cons for both using a digital camera versus using a smartphone camera, one of the cons for smartphone camera use being the lack of strength in most of their LED flashes. We’ve seen some smartphone manufacturers feature either dual-LED or Xenon flashes with their cameras, but a new accessory can help give you the flash you so desperately need when taking shots in low-light conditions.
The iblazr mobile phone flash features four powerful LEDs that works with your iOS and Android devices’ included camera application in order to provide more light for both photos and videos. The iblazr works by connecting to your device’s 3.5mm headphone jack and comes with its own rechargeable battery so it doesn’t suck up any power from your phone.
The iblazr can also help light up photos take with your device’s front-facing camera, which up until now, have always offered a terrible image in low-light conditions. Not only that, but the iblazr can also be used to help light your gorgeous face during video calls.
There’s no word on when the iblazr will be available or for how much, but they do have a website where you can sign up to learn more about the product.
