Now the team behind the flash is back with the iblazr 2, a wireless version of the LED flash which uses Bluetooth, syncs with the native camera apps of iOS and Android devices, and lets users select a light color temperature.
Just like its predecessor, the iblazr 2 is launching on Kickstarter and is again a small flash and constant light which uses four powerful LEDs to help improve your smartphone photography. However, this time around there are a number of important upgrades, the main one being the switch to Bluetooth wireless connectivity. The original iblazr plugged into the headphone jack of a smartphone.
This switch allows the small 40 x 28 x 10 mm (1.57 x 1.1 x 1.57 in) unit to be used as a remote flash with a range of up to 25 m (80 ft) while a built-in battery should deliver 300 flashes or three hours of continuous light on a single charge, which is done via USB. The flash also now syncs with native iOS and Android camera apps, which means users are not dependent on a specific app for basic flash functions.
