Despite the best attempts by smartphone manufacturers, the flash units on our smartphones can’t be compared to that of a dedicated flash unit. They tend to be overly harsh and unflattering in the illumination of their subjects, but sometimes it’s really the best that can be done in a bad lighting situation.
Now there are plenty of flash accessory for mobile devices, but in case you were still on the lookout for an alternative, Knog’s Expose might be of interest to you. Knog, for those unfamiliar, is an Australian company who has been known for creating flash units for mobile devices, and the Expose is their latest creation.
The Expose is a flash unit that is small enough where you can clip it onto your keychain meaning that you will always have it with you when you need it. It will also come with an accompanying app that allows the user to toggle between different modes, such as flash, strobe, continuous, and so on. Users will also be able to adjust its white balance and brightness via the app as well.
The accessory pairs with your smartphone via Bluetooth and will sport 9 LEDs that will be able to output 130 lumens. The flash is good for about an hour before it requires recharging, so unless you plan to fire off flashes for the next hour, we reckon the Expose should last you quite a bit. The device will be going on sale in the next few weeks and will set you back $60.
