Looking for a Better Portable Flash? IBLAZR 2 Is Coming!

The IBLAZR ($39.99), previously featured in our CES coverage, has gone on to rave reviews and something like a billion units sold (OK, I don't really know how many, but a lot.) So get ready for the next portable camera light you didn't know you needed: the IBLAZR 2 (crowd roaring and fireworks)!! It hasn't yet been officially announced, but a new Kickstarter effort is coming that ups the flashlight camera ante yet again; the second generation includes Bluetooth remote control, and an even more sophisticated app for taking great pictures in any lighting condition (well, maybe not at the bottom of the ocean, for that we might have to wait for the iBLAZR 3.) Read on for more information on this upcoming add-on flash unit.

Available in black, pearl gray and white, the cube-esquely shaped IBLAZR 2 not only looks better but will be smarter too. The new version includes a touch sensor, and light color-sensing technology, 130MaH internal power cell, native app sync, and more. What else you say? How about a new app that helps you adjust ISO, focus, exposure, and white balance before snapping off that award-winning photo. Check out the upcoming Kickstarter preview here. Once the campaign is active (which should be this week), it looks like with a pledge of $45, you can grab one of the first 1000 units at a 36 percent discount off the expected MSRP of $70.
