When it comes to low-light photography with our smartphones, most phones tend to struggle, save for the Nokia Lumia 1020 and the LG G2, both of which appear to handle low-light photography relatively well, albeit somewhat noisier than I would have like, personally. For those who don’t enjoy the noise on their photos, using flash would be the next best thing, although in most case using flash results in harsh photos, which Apple has attempted to correct in the iPhone 5s. Well if you’re sick of having bad photos in low-light situations or night shots, then the Lightstrap is definitely a Kickstarter project worth checking out.
As you can see in the photo above, the Lightstrap is an iPhone casing that comes with an LED ring around the back of it, similar to a photographer’s flash ring. Lightstrap will allow iPhone photographers to choose from seven brightness levels and six color temperatures. Its creators, a father and son team comprising of Ben and Cassidy Clawson, claim that the Lighstrap will offer 10 times the brightness of the flash in the iPhone 5s. It sounds like a great idea and based on what we can see in the sample photos, it helps a lot.
