Mo­bile light­ing made easy

Light­ing your way to bet­ter pho­tos with the iBlazr 2.

HWM (Malaysia) - - APERTURE / LEARN - by Bryan Chan

One of the most chal­leng­ing as­pects of mo­bile pho­tog­ra­phy is get­ting good ex­po­sure in low-light en­vi­ron­ments. With the iBlazr 2, how­ever, you no longer need to worry about shoot­ing in the dark. In this ar­ti­cle, we will show how you can make use of this com­pan­ion light­ing de­vice with your smart­phone.

What is iBlazr 2?

Be­fore we jump into the ca­pa­bil­i­ties of the iBlazr 2, let's first talk a lit­tle about what this de­vice re­ally does. In sim­plest terms, it's an aux­il­iary light source that con­nects to your An­droid or iOS de­vice via Blue­tooth. Once connected, it will be able to pro­vide il­lu­mi­na­tion (up to 300 lux, to be ex­act) for well-lit pho­tos, even in the dead of night.

There are two ways that the iBlazr 2 pro­vides il­lu­mi­na­tion – the first is via con­tin­u­ous light­ing, and the other via short burst. Need­less to say, con­tin­u­ous light­ing mode is for record­ing videos, while the short burst mode is for snap­shots.

What's great about the iBlazr 2 is that you can cus­tomize the color tem­per­a­ture of the light­ing, from 3,200K to 5,600K. Ex­pe­ri­enced pho­tog­ra­phers will find this fea­ture highly use­ful, es­pe­cially when shoot­ing un­der street lights.

The iBlazr 2 comes with a smart­phone mount, a dif­fuser, a charg­ing ca­ble, and a swivel latch.
