While smartphone cameras are more getting better and better for quality photography and pack more megapixels and advanced photo features than ever before, there’s one thing that doesn’t get much attention, and, believe me, it should – the camera flash! Either you use it to get some extra light when shooting pics or as an emergency flashlight, he regular flash installed on most smartphones out-there could use a bit of extra juice.
The Iblazr is an external flash unit designed to help you take better pics in low light conditions. The Iblazr connects to most devices out there including iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows smartphones, tablets and laptops via a 3.5mm plug (the same plug as your headphones) and features 4 high-power 80+ CRI LED‘s capable of outputting a 70 degree light beam of 5,600 K color temperature and providing up to 270 Lux at 3.3 feet (1 meter). The device is powered by a 110mAh rechargeable battery which offers enough juice for up to 500 flashes, or up to 3 hours of constant light (dimmable from 0% to 100%) if used as flashlight!

A little disclaimer here – don’t expect the Iblazr to transform your iPhone into a night-shooting pro camera! But, if you need some extra light when using your smartphone to shoot night pics, it might be the right device to get. Check it out and let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
