Almost all of us are now carrying phones or tablets (including phablets) with built-in cameras. And we love being able to just pop out or "toys" and take some quick snaps or video of whatever happens to be the subject of our visual attraction. However one thing that has always suffered is taking pics in low light. More recently pulsed LED "flashes" have been included as stock equipment. In very close distance shots they can be somewhat to mostly effective but only in a very narrow scope. Even newer dual-flash configurations with two LEDs positioned on either side of, or as a diffusing "flash-ring" around the lens can only go so far towards solving the problem. To address this problem, professional photographers use synchronized external flash elements, many with large silver lined umbrellas behind or large translucent panels in front of them to reflect and diffuse the light from those flashes over a wider area. Wouldn't it be nice if we, the cell phone/tablet camera-toting photographers and videographers of the modern age had a similar tool? Well, through the power of crowd funding and the creativity of brilliant minds comes the first (and I believe still only), fully synchronized wired portable flash element for cell phone/tablet cameras.
