One of the downsides of smartphone photography is low light performance. Images are terribly grainy and suffer from poor colors. Fortunately, there’s a solution on the horizon. The folks at Brick & Pixel have just launched a Kickstarter campaign for the Lightstrap, a ring light for your iPhone.

The Lighstrap attaches to your iPhone like your standard case does, but with a few key differences. It provides soft light with adjustable brightness and color temperature to get great photos and video, and it is powered by an internal battery, which is rated at 500+ photos or 30 minutes of video. It’ll also work with any camera app that uses Apple’s standard API, so have at it.

Brick & Pixel’s giving away some prototypes in an Instagram contest, but if you’d like to secure yours, you can back the project on Kickstarter now.

Check some sample images after the break.
