British manufacturer Hink Pro has said that its new flexible flashgun, the Spacefish, will be going on sale next year for £149.99 (including VAT).

The bendy light’s prospects don’t seem to have been hurt by the paltry number of pledges to its crowd-funding campaign. The UK-based firm is pressing on with its proposed February-March shipping date.

The Spacefish will be a flash gun with a long, flexible neck that can be pointed in almost any direction. The light features an LED modelling lamp, which doubles as an autofocus-assist lamp in dim shooting conditions. Powered by a lithium-ion battery, the flash head recycles in a speedy 0.8 seconds and recharges via USB port. Extra accessories, such as battery packs, radio triggers and video lamp attachments are to come later.
