The Giz Wiz Gets Synched

Episode 1661 (2:19:30)


Most folks know the iPhone 11 & 11 Pro take spectacular photos, but, being of the phone, the flash is limited. This new Anker MFi flash accessory uses the Lightning connector for tight synchronization with the iPhone rear camera & works with the native camera app and 3rd party apps. Anker says it helps illuminate objects at 2x the range and 4x brightness. It ships with a detachable diffuser and a soft carry pouch. 10,000 shots per charge. Enables off-axis and direct fill flash lighting effects both with and without the detachable diffuser. 1/4” ISO mount for easy connection with other camera accessories. Recharge with any Apple, Anker, or MFi USB to Lightning cable. It can also be used independently as a stand-alone LED flashlight.
