CPFlash 550W is the first high power off-camera LED flash for iOS and Android smartphones with 550W power output:
• Smartphones (iPhone and Android)
• DSLR and Mirrorless cameras
• Video light with 8 special effects (Continuous On, Flickering, Lightning, TV, Paparazzi, Police, Strobe, Fire)
Great off-camera flash for beginners, smartphone photography, outdoor photography, portrait photography, studio photography, and travel photography.
CPFlash Tip : It is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to use AE/AF Lock or Manual Focus of your smartphone camera to lock the focus and exposure values before taking a photo when using CPFlash 550W and capture the light of the CPFlash.
We have also experienced this during our initial testing when we forgot to use the AE/AF Lock feature, we were not able to capture the light. Not locking the exposure and focus values before taking the photo will give inconsistent results because by the time you take the shot, that will be the only time your smartphone camera will look for a focus point.
It’s extremely easy to use the AE/AF Lock or Manual Focus of your phone.
To lock the focus and exposure point, simply tap and hold on to your focal point for a few seconds. When you see AE/AF Lock text, Sun icon, or Lock icon in a square or circle on your screen, release your finger
To unlock, tap anywhere on the screen.
NOTE: CPFlash power output is 550 Watts. It is not equivalent to a 550 watt-second xenon flash. It is a continuous light source and should be compared with other continuous light sources like video lights. CPFlash 550W is primarily intended for smartphones
Based on our actual testing with DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, depending on aperture, shutter speed, and ISO combination, the CPFlash is approximately equivalent to a 60watt-second Speedlite. Examples of 60watt-second Speedlite are Canon 580EX, 600EX, Nikon SB-800, Nikon SB-900, and equivalent Speedlites from Godox and Yongnuo.
But please take note, for all practical purposes, a xenon flash will not sync with your smartphone while the CPFlash will sync with your smartphone at any shutter speed.
