Tech ::: the Paparazzo iPhone Flash
With the introduction of the iPhone 4S, the popular phoning device has widely become the primary camera for it’s owners. In a quest to entirely replace the digital camera, at least on a hobby level, lots of great accessories have been released over the years. Today we come across another one – the Paparazzo iPhone Flash, which is a Kickstarter project in current development. A pledge of $45 gives supporters either a black or white model, and if the idea catches on it’s anticipated to be available by January of 2013. You can take a look at the project here.
The Paparazzo is designed to be easy to use and give professional results. With the 300 Lumen LED, you can dial the light for your photo or video from zero to full bright. Don’t worry about draining your iPhone battery because, although it is plugged into your iPhone the Paparazzo supplies its own power with two powerful CR 123 batteries. Get everyone in the picture when you mount the Paparazzo onto any standard tripod. The Paparazzo has three modes dedicated to photo, video, or brightness adjustment which are easily selected with the push of a button. It will have an app that will let your iPhone and the Paparazzo communicate seamlessly.
