iblazr now offered with cold shoe mount option
Ukrainian company, iblazr Lab, has added a cold shoe mount option on its Kickstarter for its iblazr LED constant flash. The company has met its target goal with six days left in the campaign, but consumers can pre-order the multi-functional synchronized flash by backing the project. The iblazr originally was intended just for smartphones, tablets and laptops, but the cold shoe mount allows for the flash to be added to any DSLR that has video mode and to portable cameras with a hot shoe mount. Considered the smallest constant light system available (in terms of luminosity), the iblazr with shoe mount package can be pre-ordered for $50 in plastic, $70 in aluminum, and $100 for both. Estimated delivery on the project is December 2013.
