Deal Of The Day: 16% Off On The KICK, A Smartphone Controlled Photography Light


A lot goes into taking a nice picture, beyond pointing your camera and pressing a button. Almost as important as composition is lighting, and the KICK light pictured above can help you elevate the quality of your photos. It works with any camera, whether it’s a DSLR, a smartphone, or even one of those old-fashioned handhelds.

It’s only about the size of your smartphone, but comes packed with a rechargeable panel of 40 completely adjustable RGB LEDs. At 400 Lumens (twice as bright as most Police flashlights) it’s powerful, but it’s also intelligent – once you pair it with the free KICK app (iOS and Android).

The app provides completely adjustable brightness, color temperature, animated light, and built-in video effects – but what really stands out is its ability to recreate any color or effect from the world around you. Point your smartphone at the effect you want to recreate, tap the screen, and KICK emits that light – be it a rainbow strobe, lightning flash, or flickering campfire.

It’s a cool device, which normally costs $179, but you can have it for $159 today. About the size of a smartphone itself, it’s easy to carry and is a must for anyone that takes photography somewhat seriously.

Deal Of The Day: 40% Off On Super-Fisheye iPhone Lens


The vast majority of photos are taken on a mobile device these days, so it makes sense to make a bit of an effort to get a better quality picture. There are tons of lens attachments for the iPhone; the one you’re looking at is a “super fisheye” lens that’s a little different than other similar offerings. Instead of the regular 180°, you’re getting 235°. That’s a much wider field of view and can make for some interesting shots. It’s also easy to remove and install so you won’t have a large lens sticking out at all times. Normally you’d have to pay $49, but with this deal it’s only $29.

Deal Of The Day: $30 Off On ProPhotoX For iPhone 5/5S


The iPhone camera is one of the most used on the planet, responsible for documenting more than one colourful breakfast and duck-style smile over the years.

It’s a “rugged but sleek” case that is waterproof up to 33 feet, and offers drop protection up to 30 feet. Additionally, it features interchangeable lenses to amplify the types of pics you can take. “A Macro Lens for intense detail at 10x magnification, a Telephoto Lens providing optical 2x zoom for action shots, a 175° Fish-eye Lens to increase your field-of-view and a Waterproof Flat Lens to take your photography into the depths.”

It’s normally $150, but today you can use the following coupon codes to knock $30 off the price. For International customers, use coupon “photo1“, while US customers can use “photo“.

Nova Light Is A Credit Card Sized Flash For iPhone Photographers

Screen Shot 2014-06-12 at 11.24.26 AM

You want a good picture, you need good lighting. It’s as essential as that. The Nova Wireless camera is about the size of a credit card and features 40 small LEDs behind its frosted white plastic panel. That’s enough power to light up your subject good and bright with a diffuse glow and increase your chances at a winning shot. You simply hold it with one hand while you shoot with the other, and since it connects to your phone, you can select any colour temperature. Its size means it’ll fit in a wallet or a pocket with ease, so you can take it with you next time you get an urge to document your breakfast, which, let’s face it, is every day.

It’ll cost $50 once it ships, which should be sometime next week.

Lomo’Instant Camera: Instant Photos With Added Options

Lomo’Instant Camera

Instant cameras aren’t anything new, but Lomography manages to bring something new to the table with the Lomo’Instant camera. If you’ve ever used a Polaroid or a Fujifilm Instax, then you know that shooting options for instant cameras are quite limited. Basically, you just point and shoot and hope for the best as you wait for your photos to develop.

That’s where the Lomo’Instant camera starts to differ. First of all, it’s packed with a bunch of additional options and extra features so you can tweak settings and shoot more creatively. It’s programmed with three shooting modes, so you’re in control when it comes to lighting. Plus you can shoot unlimited multiple exposures so you can experiment and combine multiple shots into one frame.

Not-a-Camera Wooden Camera Necklace is Actually a Camera

Wooden Camera Necklace

So this is the Not-a-Camera necklace, and it’s the exact opposite of what it’s name says it is. The necklace features a larger-than-the-usual wooden pendant in the shape of a camera, and even though it’s name insists that it isn’t a camera, it actually is. It’s hard to believe that this thin wooden thing is capable of taking 3.5-megapixel pictures, but it can be used to record HD video too.

The Not-a-Camera’s maker, Olivia, originally made the camera for her 101-year-old grandmother (who also happens to be named Olivia), so that the latter would have a camera at hand (or rather, around her neck) that was both light and easy to use.

Printing Memories: Fujifilm Instax Printer

Fujifilm Instax Printer


Fujifilm’s Instax series of cameras are basically the newer generation of Polaroids, except they give you smaller-sized prints and are available in a wide assortment of colors, shapes, and sizes. Taking the concept of instant memories one step further, they’ve recently unveiled the Instax Printer. Granted, portable photo printers aren’t exactly anything new, but this one is still worth having for people who dig Instax and instant pictures.

The Instax Printer hooks up with most smartphones to print photos from Facebook, Instagram, or your camera roll on actual film. Just fire up the printer’s companion app to sync and edit photos, add filters, and print them. The printer retails for $200 and will be released on June 1st.
