Get A Kick Of Light
You may or may not be supportive of the idea of using an iPhone in place of a camera, but whatever your stance on the use of an iPhone for photography, I'm betting you'll have no problem with the idea of turning your iPhone into an LED light. No, it's not quite turning the phone itself into a light source (wouldn't THAT be a cool trick) but rather this tiny little device that slides onto the back of your iPhone and is controlled by the phone's touchscreen interface—allowing you to customize the light's output and white balance via an integrated app. At $179 it's not quite cheap enough to be a must have, but the idea certainly makes sense—especially if I were a food blogger or other shooter regularly confronting small subjects that need just a little kick of light.
