Snapture offers add-on flash for the iPhone

updated 04:05 pm EST, Wed December 24, 2008

SnaptureFlash prototype

Snapture Labs has recently introduced its prototype SnaptureFlash hardware add-on for the original iPhone, letting the popular cell phone light up a dark scene for capturing photos. Snapture has traditionally offered software for the iPhone designed to enhance the device's photo-capturing capabilities and the SnaptureFlash is the company's first foray into manufacturing hardware. The piece doubles as a case, and includes an LED light in addition to the Xenon flash bulb to light up video scenes - a feat made capable by Snapture software.

The SnaptureFlash device only works with a jailbroken iPhone as it requires that the phone sends a trigger signal. The device runs off the iPhone's battery. Currently undergoing the patent process, the SnaptureFlash is still far from production, as the company is looking for a manufacturing partner for the device. As such, no pricing or release information is yet known. [via Wired]

    iPhone 3G

    Why offer this for the iPhone 2G when the more popular and globally widespread device is the iPhone 3G?

    They could have taken the

    ... opportunity to add a flat battery to not only avoid pumping from the iPhone's battery, but to actually increase its longevity. I think that would have been even more appealing. It would have more strongly mitigated the increase in volume of the whole "package".

    Merry X-Mas and Happy New Year to all the readers...

    wow

    This is the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen. I don't think I need to say anything else. I can only imagine the criticisms from you guys if this were for a blackberry...

    Well I better say it then

    luckyday, you're wrong.

    If they incorporate a battery into this as well, something whoever decides to manufacture this for them will hopefully suggest, then I'm buying it.

    A great idea!
