iblazr claims it has made the first fully synchronised flash unit for iPhone, iPad and Android, and it has been launched on kickstarter.
The iblazr connects to the audio jack of your device, and has its own rechargable battery, so it doesn't drain your device. It can also be used as an external flash by using a cable which connects the iblazr to your smart device.
iblazr has enough battery power for more than 1000 flashes per charge, or can shine constantly for up to three hours. It features four CREE LED lights, which provide up to 200 lux/m of luminous light, are adjustable and have a 60 degree beam angle.
There is also a free app, which will help users adjust the brightness of the LEDs and synchronise the iblazr with the camera shutter fo the device.
The iblazr is available to preorder now through the kickstarter website
. It is hoped that the device will go into mass production soon. No pricing information is available as yet.
