IMG_1928.JPGLP180 by LumoPro Category: Flashes Works With: Any Camera Price: $200 LumoPro’s LP180 flash is quite excellent.

The Light Blaster Projects Slides Into Your Photos Using Your Own Flash And Lenses

Just five short years ago I interviewed the magnificently-bearded Julius von Bismarck about his Image Fulgurator, a modified 35mm film SLR which would project an image onto whatever it was pointed at using a powerful flashgun.

Photojojo’s Pocket Reflector Is Like A Solar-Powered Flash

If you never used a reflector to help out the lighting in your photos, you’ll probably be pretty surprised at just how big a difference they can make.

External Flash App Turns Other iPhones Into Synched External Flashes

See if you can guess what the app External Flash does. Hopefully you guessed “It’s an app that lets you control the LED lamps from up to 16 other iPhones and fire them in sync with your own iPhone’s camera," because then you’d be correct.

Samsung: We’re Wasting Half Of The Galaxy S4′s Flash Storage On Crappy Features No One Wants

IMG_0565

when you buy a 16GB iPhone, iOS 6 takes up roughly 1GB of space on the device, leaving about 15GB or so to spare. Buy a 16GB Samsung Galaxy S4, on the other hand, and you get just 8.49GB!
