iPhones have decent cameras, and you can snap even better photos with the built-in flash. That flash does have its problems, though, because it’s fired directly at the subject. Photos can look harsh if you were too close to the subject, or they can be dark if you were too far away. The Nova external flash gives you a secondary light to illuminate your subject. Because it’s wireless, you can hold it at the right distance for good, even lighting. It has “40 warm and cool LEDs gently diffused to create natural looking lighting”. There’s an iPhone app that lets you control the camera while photographing with the Nova, and it even has photo editing features. The Nova will begin shipping next week, but you can pre-order it now from BiteMyApple for $59.99.
