If you checkout the pro photographer at events, you will notice that their flash is located away from the lens and this is why the photos always come out differently from those taken by a Smartphone using the built in flash. So it should be no surprise that Nova has developed a cool new flashlight designed for Smartphone’s, but in the classic way it is held away from the device in order to achieve similar results as those pros are able to produce. The Nova is a small device about the size of a credit card, yet inside it has forty LED’s that are capable of providing the user with a nice background light that will place a nice glow to the image that you are setting up.
You cannot have a device like this without any specs, so let us take a closer look at the Nova and what all the fuss is about. One of the main features is that there is an app available for it, this is where the user is able to control how the device works, and unfortunately, it is only ready for the iPhone at the moment! It connects to the device through a low energy Bluetooth 4.0 connection, which is kind to the built in lithium ion polymer battery. It is charged through the USB Micro B cable, which is included.
The flash is provided by LEDs, there are 40 × 8 Lumen white LEDs built into the device and the battery capacity is good for up to a 150 flashes or when it’s not being used it will last for up to four weeks on standby between charges. As for the size the Nova measures up at around 3.4 inches (L) × 2.1 inches (W) × 0.25 inches (H) and it will weigh in at just 5.3 ounces. The Nova is available right now to buy from many online outlets where it is priced at around $60.
