Why? Why? Why? Why would one really want a speedlite flash for their iPhone? Well apparently, folks want it according to what the KickStarter for Nova states. The Nova is a brand new flash for the iPhone; except it isn’t a flash. Instead, it is an LED light that functions and acts like a flash–but it isn’t something with a real quartz bulb or anything else like that. With that said though, it connects to your iPhone via Bluetooth and can be controlled via an app. Said app allows some manual control over the flash but not in the way that Strobists think of. There is a warm, gentle, and full blast setting.
It also allows you to dial in the color temperature accordingly–which is really nice an an advantage that LEDs have over real flashes. To make this even more effective though, it would need some sort of other light modifier. And currently there are none.
