LED Flash for Smartphones and Tablets?

by iblazr / May 27, 2013 8:19 PM PDT

Hi, guys. This post isn't an advertisement or spam. I really want to hear some feedback about our invention. It's a first LED Flash for smartphones and tablets. Portable, powerful, easy-to-use flash which can be controlled from any mobile device using 3.5 mm audio jack.

What do you think about such device? Do you really need a powerful flash for your camera phone? How much will you pay for external flash?

We are planning to launch our device at kickstarter soon and its really important to hear your feedback!

Hope thread's moderator will allow to post a few photos of device and test pictures Happy

Thank you!

If you feel it's viable, sell your idea fast.

The number of folk that have this phone, need that flash is too much a niche product. Look at camera owners and how many use a remote flash. You are talking about a very small percentage.

I strongly suggest you sell your idea and take your money off to your next bigger idea.

We think that above-listed idea is really viable, cause the market is obviously a huge.
Nowadays the iphoneography is the most popular trend and it still growing up. A few years ago Flickr made a announcement that cameraphones had passed all professional cameras in comparison of total amount of added photos by.

We created a unique device, so e will find our consumers. I hope you will agree with it when you see a video on kickstarter Wink

Thank you for reply!

I'm sure you've noticed Nokia's new low light cell phone camera. It won't take long for this to filter into other phones. Move fast as it seems the window of opportunity is closing fast.
