LitraTorch 2.0 review: LED flash for enhanced videos and images




Let's face it; While the iPhone is a great camera, the flash is only suitable for illuminating near objects. For serious videography and photography, you may want to check out LitraTorch 2.0 ($ 89.95) which Litra sent me to check out. LitraTorch 2.0 is a powerful 16-LED light that offers many mounting options, including tripod, SLR and GoPro, plus a magnetic base that works with the included metal disc with self-adhesive backing. You can attach the disc to your iPhone case and then magnetically attach LitraTorch when needed, or use a separate tripod or action camera mount.

LitraTorch is housed in a solid metal cabinet that acts as a heat sink to dissipate the heat provided by the LEDs. There are three levels of brightness plus a strobe effect. Even the lowest level is quite bright, so the included diffuser is a good improvement. Some competing devices include colored filters, but at a higher price. With LitraTorch, apart from the diffuser, other color filters are sold separately if desired.


Pros

  • Solid metal case enclosure
  • Three light levels plus strobe power
  • Multiple mounting options including tripod and GoPro
  • Magnetic base

Cons

  • Uses microUSB to charge the device [19659006soldseparately
