Need better lighting for your cameraphone? The Nova Bluetooth-controlled ‘iPhoneography’ flash is now on sale in the UK for £49.

Originally a Kickstarter project, the Nova is a credit card-sized LED flash with wirelessly adjustable brightness and colour temperature. It syncs with a dedicated Nova Camera app for iOS, and has an open-source software development kit should you want to build your own interface on other platforms.


It’s not proper xenon, but if you don’t want to go all-in with your mobile photography gear, the Nova is a portable and easy way to get more control over your phone photography lighting.
