With the introduction of the iPhone 4S, the device has also become a strong photography device. In a quest to entirely replace the digital camera, at least on a hobby level, lots of great accessories have released over the years. Today we come across another one – the Paparazzo iPhone Flash.
We designed the Paparazzo 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.
The Paparazzo is right now on Kickstarter and it looks like it will become reality. You can take a look at the project here.
