I mentioned previously that the ZenFlash and LolliFlash looked like cool little accessories to play around with. This was at the Zenfone 2 launch a few months ago when the accessories were first announced. They are now available in Singapore. Asus kindly sent me review units of the accessories and they turned out great.
LolliFlash is an ultra-portable external LED flash that is small, portable and can be used with any phone by simply plugging it in the earjack. With a dual LED-colour flash, it makes your selfies more natural looking when in low light conditions. It has different filters of red and blue to change the lighting plus 3 light intensity settings for you to customize. It runs on battery thus it can be brought to be used anywhere, anytime.
Despite the name, it’s not really a flash. I was confused as there didn’t seem to be an control mechanism, or how it would sync to your photo taking application. The audio jack is actually just a placeholder to mount it in place. How do you use it then? It’s more of a LED light, with a separate on / off switch to provide fill light to your photos.
That’s a little less useful. See it in action here. It’s in Chinese, but pretty much self-explanatory:
