Don’t you just hate the flash on your iPhone/any mobile phone? Mine sucks! Since we’re in collective agreement, you should check this out. The Paparazzo Light is quite the cool attachment for nightlife photography on the iPhone it seems! The device sits quite nicely on the side of the phone and attaches easily to mini tripods where necessary. The retro looking Paparazzo allows you to regulate the strength of the flash with ease; there are also 3 different settings: test, photo and video. If you’re wondering about it raping your phones battery life, the device is powered by CR123 batteries! Right so to get one of these, you’ll have to pledge $45 on Kickstarter and if the project goes ahead, you’ll be receiving one in the post!

Back in the early 20th century, commercial cameras were expensive and delicate pieces of equipment and photographers treated them that way by confining their shoots to stuffy studios or arranged press events. One man bucked tradition and took his camera to the raw streets of New York City. That man’s name was Arthur Fellig, the first Paparazzo, nicknamed Weegee for his seemingly supernatural ability to arrive at the scene of action before anyone else. Photographing real life is unpredictable, and Weegee never knew who, what, when or where he would photograph next. Thanks to his press camera’s light, he never had to worry. This light is still an enduring icon of the forthright photography Weegee pioneered.
Today, the iPhone is a powerful tool that you can pull from your pocket and take quality photos and video wherever you are. The trouble is that sometimes lighting can be unpredictable. Why isn’t there a way to bring the light you need to the photos or video you take with your iPhone in a simple, iconic package? Now there is. Be like Weegee in dim or night with the Paparazzo as your light.
