The colour-changing, smartphone-controlled Kick Light LED from Rift Labs is now on sale at Photojojo for $179. This marks the first time that the device has been made available to the public, with only Kickstarter backers able to get their hands on it until now.
The Kick Light is a small battery-powered LED, designed for stills photography and video. What’s unique about it is that the output can change colour to almost anything in the RGB spectrum, thanks to pulse-width modulation (PWM) technology, and you can remotely control this in real time with the accompanying iPhone app.
In a recentÂ Lighting RumoursÂ review of the Kick Light, we praised the product’s potential but criticised the iOS app’s design and reckon the device was let down by banding and flickering issues caused by using the LED at low power settings. Click here to read our full evaluation.
Photojojo bills the Kick as “super customizable light studio that fits in your pocket” and “an iPhoneography lighting studio to rival a real pro’s”.Â Visit the store for more information.
