Phlash is the world's first universal cameraphone flash designed to provide powerful, even lighting for superior mobile phone photography.
"Of 100 million cameraphones being used today, less than one percent include a built-in flash. And unfortunately, even those built-in flashes are very weak because they are often added by manufacturers as an afterthought," said Phlash inventor Dale Fox. "That's ironic, considering most consumers use cameraphones to take quick, candid photos indoors -- at restaurants, clubs, or other places with insufficient lighting. Phlash is twelve times brighter than most built-in flashes, and allows anyone who already owns a cameraphone to finally take quality pictures indoors and at night."
Measuring just over an inch wide, Phlash resembles a cute silver button that can either be stuck to the back of a cameraphone or hung from the phone via an included strap.
To use, simply press on Phlash while pressing the capture button on the cameraphone. Phlash emits an intense pulse of light that takes the perfect picture and also helps the user to clearly see what he or she is shooting.
The unique light-emitting array is engineered to provide full-frame lighting that iss even and color-balanced, eliminating hotspots and washouts. Designed for the close-up pictures usually taken with cameraphones, Phlash provides optimal performance at a distance of one meter, or about two arm lengths away.
Phlash includes easily replaceable lithium coin-type batteries designed to provide hundreds of brief flash cycles.
Phlash is available for under thirty dollars.
