Unless you are a professional photographer or have a serious penchant for 1930s nostalgia and run around in a Dick Tracy-esque mac trying to get the skinny on the latest scoop, it’s doubtful that you have an external ‘flash’ for your camera or iPhone. That’s about to change. The Manfrotto KLYPAPP that we wrote about last week is made even better with the addition of a Manfrotto KYLP Case with ML240 LED light, making it the optimum accessory for taking pictures in low light conditions.
If you want to bust a gang of jewel thieves by catching them in the act or take a photo of your mates in a club (take your pic, I ain’t judging), just strap this bad boy to your iPhone and let your subjects become illuminated in handheld LED light. You can even mount your iPhone on the mini tripod adapter that can be clicked on and off in an instant.
What I like about the case and light is that the LED light can be mounted backwards, so any video chat applications can be used in dark spaces…just don’t be that guy at the cinema, OK?
There’s also a second clip-on tripod adapter that serves as a ¼”” thread, essentially turning it into a camera that can be fit on to pretty much any tripod – perfect for those professional photographers that we were talking about earlier.
The case itself gives solid and durable protection, in case any of those jewel thieves break loose and bust you with a bunch of fives whilst you’re holding your iPhone.
All in all, a real winner from Manfrotto: innovative, stylish and offers great protection – not unlike a certain private detective that I could namecheck…
