Although most cameraphones have lousy resolution they usually come in handy on those transient moments when you never imagine bringing a real camera. The major downfall of cameraphones is low light conditions, but Phlash comes to the rescue, with an inch wide specially designed lens filled with 4 light-emitting chips, it is 12 times brighter than most built-in flashes and has optimal performance at a distance of one meter. It runs on lithium-coin type batteries and provides hundreds of brief flash cycles. Best yet the Phlash is offered at an introductory price $19.99 on the Phlash website. Via PopGadget.
