A Ring Light For Your iPhone. Really.
While I'm all for the democratization of photography and the wonderful advances in technology that have made iPhones some of the most popular—and frankly, some of the best—digital cameras on the market... Isn't it all getting a little bit ridiculous? Take, for instance, this iPhone ring light. Sure, it's all in good fun, and I'm sure if I had enough time and energy the thought of making a ringlight for my phone would be sort of appealing. But really, at the point at which we have so many accessories for our iPhones to make pictures, doesn't that sort of defeat the purpose of the iPhone's camera, and eliminate what it is that makes the thing so great in the first place? Namely, that it's ever present in our pockets, always ready to go, which makes it invaluable. I certainly love the DIY photo blog, and I have to admit this is a fun project sure to generate plenty of comments if you were to actually put it into practice. But don't you think this post would be more fitting for April Fool's Day?
