The dizzying pace of iblazr‘s evolution has been difficult to keep up with over the last month.
It started out as an iDevice flash with four Cree-made LEDs that plugs into the 3.5mm jack. Then it gained a diffuser, and a short while later its designers added a reflective backing and redesigned the lens over the LEDs.
Now, the little flash has a cold-shoe adapter that’ll allow it to be mounted onto a DSLR.
Since it’s a cold-shoe adapter, the iblazr won’t sync with a DSLR like it will with iOS apps — which means the iblazr will function as a constant light source and probably drain the battery pretty quickly. Still, it’s a welcome extra feature for iblazr owners who want to use the little guy for some quick-and-dirty DSLR video work.
Backers who’ve already popped for an iblazr at $39 on Kickstarter can pick up the adapter for an extra $8; it comes included with iblazrs at $47 and above.
