Kickstarter – Ember – The Night Photography Tool For iPhone

Share

We’ve just been sent information regarding this new Kickstarter camaign ‘Ember’. It’s an iPhone light accessory for night photography that allows you to capture night images and videos with soft warm light. The Ember is a continuous light tool contoured to the shape of the iPhone 5 and 5s. The back panel illumination provides a soft, warm light.

The Ember’s design was inspired by the function of professional fill lights, used by photographers and videographers to illuminate their subjects. The 56 LEDs provide light that’s 10x brighter than the iPhone’s flash, and the built-in diffuser softens and spreads light evenly resulting in a flattering glow. The Ember’s soft, warm light brings out sharp details, natural skin tones, and vibrant colors that harsh flashes miss. The included warming filter allows for added richness and the optional color filter pack gives you full control over color temperature.

This looks like an interesting project, you can learn and read more about Ember on the Kickstarter page here.
