For over a century, photographers have used light situated away from their camera to get beautiful photos – Nova ($59.99) uses the same principle. Nova is the totally wireless, external flash that your iPhone has been waiting for, so now you too can get professional-looking photos. Nova adds soft, natural light so your photos are rich with color, far higher quality and capture the moment exactly how you remember it.
By freeing the flash from your iPhone and holding it away from the camera lens, you can release the artist in you. By holding Nova at different angles and positions, you can create amazing effects with the light. Nova is Ultra light, slim, handy and convenient. Slimmer than your iPhone and the shape of a credit card, Nova is small enough to fit in your wallet, ready to capture the moment whenever you need it. Nova works with iPhone 5S, 5C, 5 and 4S.
The free Nova app is quick and easy to use. Use the slider to pick soft, warm or bright lighting, then take the shot. Want more control? Switch to the advanced mode and select the point on the graph for your exact mix of cool to warm and dim to bright light.
